Just as the sun rises every morning to brighten our day, The Blackberry Center’s Partial Hospitalization Program provides treatment for individuals dealing with medical, emotional and psychiatric issues five and a half hours a day in a tranquil outpatient setting. The program operates as both an extension of post hospitalization treatment or as a less restrictive means of treatment used in lieu of an inpatient program.
Under the supervision of a psychiatric team made up of a psychiatrist, social workers, and other program staff, patients are assisted in identifying or continuing to work on the sources of their psychological issues that are impairing their ability to function on a daily basis.
The Blackberry Center’s Partial Hospitalization Program provides the highest quality assessment, diagnosis, and treatment for adults with psychiatric issues which require structured outpatient partial hospitalization. Treatment is provided for our patients with kindness, empathy, dignity and respect at all levels in the continuum of care in order to maximize the individual’s ability to achieve successful mental and emotional health.
Before a patient begins treatment, several assessments are conducted to evaluate the patient’s physical, social and emotional health. The assessments help determine the appropriate level of care, which may be inpatient or partial hospitalization treatment.
Our PHP sessions meet Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM to 1:30 PM. Each day is broken down into three groups, including one nursing group and two clinical groups for a total of 20 hours of programming each week.
The length of treatment varies depending on patient needs, but may reach up to six to eight weeks. Because of our commitment to patient care and proper nutrition, our PHP patients will receive continental breakfast and lunch every day of treatment.
If you would like to enroll in our PHP treatment, you will need to commit to daily attendance of our sessions. While certain exceptions may apply, this mental health program is most effective when patients reliably attend treatment. While we strongly encourage patients to secure their own reliable transportation, we may offer transportation for in-need patients who live near our treatment center.
