Partial Hospitalization Programs for Eating Disorders


Partial Hospitalization, also called day hospital, is a comprehensive approach to treating mental illness, similar to inpatient hospital in services but without being confined. It involves 4-5 hours of group therapy, five days a week. Partial hospitalization provides a structured program of outpatient psychiatric services as an alternative to inpatient psychiatric care. It's more intense than care you get in a doctor's or therapist's office. This treatment is provided during the day and doesn't require an overnight stay. Here is how the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) defines partial hospitalization: A partial hospitalization program consists of a series of structured, face-to-face therapeutic sessions organized at various levels of intensity and frequency. Partial hospitalization programs are typically designed for persons who are experiencing increased symptomatology, disturbances in behavior, or other conditions that negatively impact the mental or behavioral health of the person served. The program must be able to address the presenting problems in a setting that is not residential or inpatient. Given this, the persons served in partial hospitalization do not pose an immediate risk to themselves or others. Services are provided for the purpose of diagnostic evaluation; active treatment of a person’s condition; or to prevent relapse, hospitalization, or incarceration. Such a program functions as an alternative to inpatient care, as transitional care following an inpatient stay in lieu of continued hospitalization, as a step-down service, or when the severity of symptoms is such that success in a less acute level of care is tenuous.

The following list of Partial Hospitals accepts patients from all across the United States, Canada and worldwide.
