Partial Hospitalization Program

Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a safe, structured, psychiatric outpatient treatment program.

About the Program

The Harrington Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a safe, structured program, typically available after discharge from an acute inpatient program or as a diversion from inpatient hospitalization. Our program specializes in offering personalized, community-based mental health treatment to help in your recovery and get you back on track.

Our PHP is a higher level of care than traditional outpatient services. PHP is a daily program, Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Patients usually participate in PHP for anywhere from 10-20 days, depending on their symptoms and treatment needs. Upon completion of PHP, patients are typically referred to appropriate aftercare, such as traditional outpatient therapy and medication management.

With the help of doctors, licensed clinicians and our nursing team, patients benefit from a comprehensive multidisciplinary care model and an individualized treatment plan to achieve an exceptional quality of care.
