Evidence-Based Comprehensive Psychological, Nutritional and Medical Care

Traditional 6 Hour Partial Hospital (PHP) Programs

Patients will be responsible for practicing eating dinners and breakfast at home.  This is an excellent option for patients with significant outside support, high confidence in their ability to challenge fears or those stepping down from a higher level of care.

Our Partial Hospitalization Programs are offered up to seven days per week, Monday through Sunday, at our St. Louis and Kansas City locations. Depending on the patient’s medical stability and treatment needs, he or she will be placed in either the Extended PHP (10 hours a day, 9:30am-7:30pm) or the Traditional PHP (6 hours a day, 9:30am-3:30pm) level of programming.

For Adults

Men and Women participating in our Adult Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) will have individual sessions, groups and supported meals at our Adult Therapy Suites.  The Adult Therapy Suites boast several group and community areas, along with an art therapy room, a room designed for movement and yoga, a dining room and an onsite full service kitchen.

For Adolescents

Female and Male adolescents, ages 12 to 17, participating on our Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) will attend individual sessions, groups and supported meals at our Adolescent Therapy Suites.   The Adolescent Therapy Suites include several group and community areas, an art therapy area, tutoring room, an intimate dining area and an onsite full service kitchen. Our tutoring program includes on-site certified teachers working one on one with our adolescent patients.
