The Adult Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is available for individuals, 18 years or older, who have been diagnosed with a psychiatric condition and/or an addiction. PHP addresses the needs of patients whose symptoms do not require the intensity of a 24-hour inpatient program, but still need more support than provided by individual outpatient therapy. Individuals are evaluated prior to starting programs to identify the appropriate level of care for promoting recovery.
With the exception of assessments and doctor’s visits, the daily schedule consists of four different groups. Patients are encouraged to talk about their symptoms, stressors, support systems and concerns, and to participate in activities to increase understanding and insight. Therapists help identify possible solutions, provide education about diagnoses and work with patients to strengthen healthy coping skills. SummitRidge Hospital’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) provides a full day of therapeutic activities for adults in both Lawrenceville and Athens, Georgia.
Groups are designed to help patients identify and clarify problems as well as gain confidence when facing issues. Plans are developed for maintaining progress upon completion of the program. The program meets daily with lunch provided.
