Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Stress Care of New Jersey’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is designed as an alternative to inpatient hospitalization for individuals who are struggling with severe mental health and addiction symptoms who have recently been hospitalized, or to help individuals prevent the need for hospitalization. Adults may be admitted directly to PHP or stepped down from a higher level of care.
Our PHP offers the structure of an inpatient program without having to stay in a hospital. The program provides a vital alternative for those who do not require inpatient treatment, need intensive follow-up after inpatient stay, or lack enough support at home to be successful as an outpatient. It also eases the transition from inpatient to home by offering on-site day treatment in a comfortable setting.
Treatment consists of group therapy, educational groups and prescriber oversight provided in a structured environment to assist patients in achieving their goals for recovery.
