Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) offer a comprehensive, outpatient experience for clients stepping down from residential treatment and who are ready to begin re-entering the world. The Ranch Pennsylvania has expanded on this experience by creating a mental health Partial Hospitalization Program to help fulfill the needs of clients on the road mental health wellness and recovery.

What Does a Mental Health Partial Hospitalization Program Look Like?

Through the Partial Hospitalization Program, clients are given the tools to reintegrate back into independent living with the support of The Ranch Pennsylvania’s caring staff and a close-knit peer community. The program runs 7 days a week with sessions scheduled between 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. This program includes:

  • Small group sessions to build close peer relationships
  • Two individual sessions per week
  • Access to recovery resources such as The Rooted Alumni program
  • Use of electronics at the end of the program day
  • *Ability to go off facility grounds after a 7-day adjustment phase

After clients who have proven to have successfully managed activities of daily life, participated in individual and group sessions consistently and have set reachable goals with their therapist, clients are then able to successfully step down from residential treatment care and have more time independent of staff to work on their personal recovery goals. This prepares clients by teaching them how to live within a small, safe community before entering back into the world.
