Partial Hospitalization Program

Partial hospitalization can be an appropriate treatment option for those who need a high level of psychiatric care but do not qualify for inpatient care. Partial hospitalization may be desirable for continued care following a hospital stay.

Partial Hospitalization FAQs

What is a partial hospitalization program?

A partial hospitalization program is a day treatment program for individuals who need intensive treatment services but do not require 24-hour supervision. Partial hospitalization combines the benefits of intensive treatment with the flexibility to return each day to the support of those at home and to manage aspects of everyday life.

How do I know if I am a candidate for partial hospitalization?

Our expert clinicians will give you a thorough intake assessment to determine the most appropriate programming and supervision for you. If you are transitioning from inpatient care at Wellfound or elsewhere, moving to partial hospitalization can help ensure you continue to focus on improving your mental health.

How long does a partial hospitalization program last?

The length of a partial hospitalization program varies based on the needs of each person. At Wellfound, patients participate four hours each day, five days a week, with a break each day for lunch.
