Comprehensive Day Treatment
Peachford Hosptial’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) serves patients dealing with mental or emotional disorders. This program provides help through integrative treatment that is coordinated, intensive and comprehensive. PHP helps those transitioning out of inpatient care and those who need supplementary care in addition to outpatient therapy.
The average length of a PHP stay varies from one to three weeks, including four group therapy sessions as well as a short wrap-up session. While group therapy is the primary mode of treatment, patients in PHP also have two individual sessions per week with their assigned psychiatrist. PHP meets weekdays 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., with lunch provided.
THE LODGE AT PEACHFORD HOSPITAL
The Lodge is off-campus, short-term housing offered to adult patients in PHP or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Peachford Hospital. Located approximately three miles from the hospital, the facility is convenient for patients with transition or transportation issues. The Lodge is appropriate for men and women over the age of 18 who are transitioning back to their normal routines.
Lodge members participate in PHP during the day, reside in off-campus housing and participate in aftercare and support groups at the hospital. Meals are provided in the hospital cafeteria. A Peachford staff member monitors The Lodge, but residents maintain a significant amount of independence. The cost is nominal and some managed care companies cover the expense.
ARRANGING ADMISSION TO THE LODGE
Individuals may be referred to The Lodge by a general practitioner, psychiatrist, psychologist or other mental health professionals either in private practice or associated with other facilities. Family members or patients themselves may also make inquiries. Many patients step down to PHP and The Lodge after time in Peachford’s Adult Inpatient Program.
