Frederick Health Hospital, Psychiatric Partial Hospitalization Program
Resource Details
Alternate Name PPHP
Description OVERVIEW: A structured day treatment program for adults 18+ with psychiatric disorders, as well as co-occurring substance use disorders, who require a higher level of care than outpatient treatment. Program provides treatment as a step-down from inpatient hospitalization and can sometimes prevent hospitalization. Patients work collaboratively with psychiatrists, social workers, and nurses, who provide assessment, treatment planning, medication management, group & individual therapy, family therapy/psychoeducation, transition and aftercare planning, and case management services.

PSYCHIATRIC PARTIAL HOSPITALIZATION (PPHP): Program is 5 days a week, 6.5 hours per day. Mon-Fri 9AM-3:30PM. The average length of stay is 3 weeks. Most patients start at the PHP level of care and, as their clinical symptoms improve, step down to the IOP level of care. 

INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT (IOP): Program is 3-5 days a week for 3 hours per day. This level of care typically serves as a stepdown from a PPHP level of care.
