Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Adolescents in need of support in transitioning from inpatient psychiatric care or requiring more intensive services than those offered in traditional outpatient therapy may benefit from Dover Behavioral Health System’s Partial Hospital Program (PHP).

The Partial Hospital Programs are tailored differently to ensure that activities and therapies reflect the specific stage of life needs of each individual. The Adolescent Partial Hospital Program is offered weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., providing intensive therapeutic assistance for individuals who need support as they strive to achieve a satisfying and productive life at home, in the workplace, or school and in the community. Evening chemical dependency partial programs are offered on weekdays.

Program elements include:

  • Comprehensive individual assessment
  • Psychiatric evaluation and medication stabilization
  • Co-occuring disorder programming
  • Academic instruction provided to adolescents
  • Daily psychoeducational and group therapy as well as skills training
  • Family sessions
  • Allied therapies, including art therapy
  • Follow-up with outpatient providers
  • Personalized discharge and aftercare plans
