Partial Hospitalization Program

Partial Hospitalization Program

The partial hospitalization program (PHP) at the Vines Hospital is designed for individuals who require a structured therapeutic environment but do not require 24-hour care. The goal of the program is to help people avoid relapse and rehospitalization. Individual treatment is designed to provide the opportunity to gain insight, increased expression, problem-solving and improved coping skills.

PHP is not only a cost-effective alternative to inpatient treatment but can also help patients transition from inpatient to less intensive treatment. PHP patients may also transition into our intensive outpatient program. The program to which a patient is initially admitted is determined by the results of a no-cost assessment.

PHP Program Details

This full-time day program takes place Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

While in our Partial Hospitalization Program, you may:

  • Get to see Psychiatrist one time a week for duration of treatment which typically last four weeks.
  • We provide transportation within Marion County to and from PHP. Don’t let transportation be a barrier to not seek help.
  • Virtual treatment is also an option if you are physically not able to come in for treatment.

Process Group Therapy

Consisting of a small group of patients and led by a licensed therapist, you will be provided with an opportunity to speak confidentially about problems and concerns in a group where you can receive ongoing support and gain insight from others into self-defeating patterns of behaviors. Insight occurs when one discovers something important about oneself (i.e. patterns of behaviors, how certain behaviors impact interpersonal relationships, what led to the development of such behaviors). This group occurs for both PHP and IOP, Monday through Friday.

Psycho-educational Group Therapy

Therapists will address diagnosis education, how stress impacts physical health, discharge planning, maladaptive vs adaptive coping skills, anger management and overall self-care. This group occurs for both PHP and IOP, Monday through Friday.


The Trauma track will focus on identifying what “Trauma” is. Patients will begin to not only understand their traumas, but how to cope with them while moving from the “surviving” role” to the “thriving” role. The ways in which this will be accomplished is through psychoeducation groups, CBT/DBT skills and assignments.
