Partial Hospitalization and Day Treatment

Is a specialized and intensive form of treatment that is more intensive than the usual types of outpatient care (i.e., individual, family, or group treatment). The most common type of partial hospitalization is an integrated program combining education, counseling, and family interventions. The setting may be a hospital, school, or clinic and may be tied to the type of treatment recommended for the youth. Partial hospitalization has also been used as a transitional service after either psychiatric hospitalization or residential treatment at the point when the youth no longer needs 24-hour care but is not ready to be integrated into the school system or community. It may also be used to prevent inpatient placement.
