Our Approach

The Partial Hospitalization Program consists of 20 hours of clinical services each week, while the Intensive Outpatient Program consists of 10 hours each week of clinical services. During an individual’s outpatient treatment, we will provide family therapy and family programming at various intervals during treatment. Please contact us to find out current group days and times. A typical Partial Hospitalization Program will last 2-3 weeks and the Intensive Outpatient Treatment will be 12 weeks in length, but this can be more or less depending on progress. After the intensity of PHP and/or IOP is complete, each client will step down to supportive outpatient services which includes continued individual therapy and 3 hours of group each week.

We also provide clinical services to individuals, families and couples. Areas of clinical expertise include, but are not limited to, chronic relapse, substance abuse, codependency, eating disorders, life and coping skills, marriage restoration, adoption, grief and loss, trauma and abuse.
