For many years, those who sought help for support and treatment of depression, stress or anxiety had to choose between inpatient hospital care or outpatient services. In 1989, we developed a program to bridge the gap between inpatient and outpatient treatment. Called Partial Hospitalization, the program is designed to provide intensive treatment while allowing the client to continue with normal daily activities.
In the Partial Program, participants come to our unit from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday to participate in group and individual therapy activities and counseling sessions. Members return to their home environment each day, without interrupting their family life structure. The program is voluntary and length of participation varies according to each individual’s needs.
FCHC Behavioral Health also offers an Intensive Outpatient program Monday – Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. This program also provide intensive individualized treatment while allowing clients at times, to maintain normal home and work schedules. Both programs provide a full range of services including:
