Peachford’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) serves patients dealing with mental or emotional disorders requiring 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.

The Partial Hospitalization Program meets every day of the week from 9 am-3 pm, with lunch provided as part of the program.

The Lodge at Peachford

The Lodge is off-campus, short-term housing offered to adult patients in the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Peachford. Located approximately three miles from the hospital, the facility is convenient for patients with transition or transportation issues.

Lodge members participate in PHP during the day, residing in the 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 of The Lodge, which is appropriate for men and women over the age of 18 who are transitioning back to their normal routines.

How Do I Arrange Admission to The Lodge?

Individuals may may be referred to The Lodge by a general practitioner, psychiatrist, psychologist or other mental health professional, 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.
