To ensure treatment success, the Network employs a thorough screening process which includes in-depth assessment and consultation with physicians, therapists, social workers and referring professionals.

Day and evening partial hospitalization programs are available Network-wide at affiliate hospitals, medical centers and freestanding facilities dedicated to partial care programs and treatment. Each program offers highly structured therapies including a variety of psychoeducational, vocational, therapeutic and activities of daily living groups as well as individual therapy. Patients also receive psychiatric evaluations, medication follow-up and injectable psychotropic medications, if necessary. Family therapy and support groups are also available.

Partial Hospitalization programs are offered five days per week, from three to seven hours per day, depending on individualized treatment plans and goals.
