Child Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

We have a separate Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for children ages 9–11 with acute psychiatric or behavioral disorders who need support, but are functioning well enough not to require inpatient care. Dover Behavioral Health System offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) to children at our locations in Dover and Georgetown, Delaware. We can help stabilize symptoms and promote a successful return to school and regular activities. This program is offered on weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.

Services Include:

  • Psychiatric evaluation
  • Medication stabilization if necessary
  • Daily group therapy and skills training
  • Family therapy sessions
  • Academic instruction by on-site, certified teachers
  • Expressive therapies including art, music, movement and yoga
  • Communication and follow-up, including following IEPs, with school personnel and outpatient therapists
  • Personalized discharge and aftercare plans
