Our Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program, “Next Step,” is a specially-designed outpatient program that is intended to meet the unique needs of adolescents, ages 13-18, who are experiencing psychiatric symptoms and/or substance abuse problems that impair their daily functioning. This program is often recommended to adolescents recently released from inpatient care.
The program is offered Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. and is based on the Level System of therapeutic progress. It includes:
- group therapy
- creative expressions therapy
The treatment team is comprised of:
- licensed counselors
- social workers
- registered nurses
Family involvement is a vital part of the treatment process and can assist in reducing relapse as the family members become actively involved in the therapeutic process.
