Signature Announces New Partial Hospital Program

Signature Psychiatric Hospital is proud to announce the addition of a new Partial Hospital Program.  This program offers a high level of psychiatric treatment.  PHP provides level of structure and support greater than that of traditional Intensive Outpatient Program(IOP).  Partial Hospitalization is a day program for patients who have acute symptoms, but do not meet the necessary criteria for inpatient hospitalization.  It is often used as a step-down program for patients discharged from the hospital and for additional aftercare.  However, PHP can also be used as entry point for treatment as well.  The goal of the program is to provide treatment and support for patients as they develop the skills necessary to maintain stability, and manage mental illness or addiction.   Patients will participate in group therapy daily, and will meet with a team nurse and psychiatrist at least once per week.   Limited individual therapy is provided as needed.   Patients in the PHP will receive asststance with the transition to a lower level of care to meet their needs after completion of PHP program.
