The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at McDowell Center for Children is a comprehensive, outpatient program designed individually to meet each patient’s specific psychiatric illness, behavioral problems and/or substance abuse issues.
The program is less intensive than inpatient psychiatric services; however, the program provides more structure and intervention than an individual would receive in an outpatient setting. Full and half-day programs are offered at McDowell’s satellite outpatient location. The programs offer a variety of groups and intervention services, each tailored to meet the need of the individual.
