Day and Evening Programs

Where Hope and Healing Begins

Are you dealing with anxiety, depression, self-harm and/or thoughts of death, life transition, loss of pleasure, lack of support, grief, trauma, work or school struggles or social activities avoidance and isolation? Our Day and Evening Programs are designed to help! These outpatient services are part of the continuum of care offered for both adults and adolescents and can be used as an alternative to hospitalization. They offer more intensive care than a weekly office visit but don’t require an overnight stay or 24-hour care. Our programs include group therapy, individualized case management with a licensed clinician, structured family involvement, as well as a medication evaluation, and management by a board-certified psychiatrist.

Our Day Treatment, commonly known as PHP (Partial Hospitalization Program), is an alternative to hospitalization and does not require 24-hour, overnight care.

PHP is the common abbreviation for the Partial Hospitalization Program. PHP doesn’t actually include being hospitalized, so to be more clear, we’re using the term Day Program. If you or a loved one needs more intensive support and structure than what individual or weekly therapy can provide but does not need 24-hour, overnight monitoring or hospitalization, our Day Program  may be the right fit. We offer Day Programs for Adults and Adolescents. You’ll learn important skills that will help you reconnect with others, build self-confidence, and better manage life’s daily activities and schedules. We can also assist in finding an outpatient team for you to work with once you have completed our program to aid in your transition back to your life.

Attendees of both our Adult and Adolescent Programs are encouraged to participate in their healing process. Groups are facilitated by licensed therapists and Registered Nurses (RN). Day Program is 5 days a week, Monday through Friday for 6 hours a day and lunch is provided.

Adult Evening Program (IOP)

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 5:30pm-8:30pm

Our Evening Program is offered to Adults. If you or a loved one needs more than individual or weekly therapy with the goal to increase coping skills, our Evening Program may be the right fit. The Evening Program attends 3 nights a week for 3 hours each (total of 9 hours a week) and it fits perfectly with an individual’s day-time work schedule.  Through the evidenced-based treatment model, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), individuals will develop new skills to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships. The Evening Program approaches therapy in a group setting presented by licensed therapists. Individuals in the program have access to a medication evaluation and management by a board-certified psychiatrist. Attendees of the Evening Program are encouraged to continue their weekly appointments with their established outpatient therapist and if one has not obtained an individual outpatient therapist while in the Evening Program, we will provide referrals to aid in that process.

Our Evening Program follows the 4 DBT modules and each module is 2 weeks. Groups offered include:

  • Mindfulness
  • Interpersonal Effectiveness
  • Distress Tolerance
  • Emotion Regulation

The total length of stay for Evening Program is about 8 weeks. Your treatment team will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan to outline your personal goals and progress.
