Partial Hospitalization

AHS Patient Guide to Partial Hospitalization

Arbour Health System offers partial hospitalization programs (PHP) for patients as part of the treatment continuum. These programs offer a safe, structured environment while enabling the patient to return home at night and maintain important family and community relationships. Partial hospitalization may be appropriate for patients making the transition from inpatient to outpatient treatment, or as a program alternative for patients who do not present any danger to themselves or others but need a structured treatment plan and environment. Family and support person involvement is a crucial part of the treatment process; since the patient returns home each night it is important that family members and support persons are involved in the therapeutic process.

For Partial Hospitalization admissions options, please contact our Intake Department.
