UM Laurel Regional Hospital’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers an immediate form of treatment for stabilization of psychiatric distress.  PHP can shorten a hospital stay or provide the intervention necessary to prevent hospitalization.  Patients are prepared to step down to less intensive community outpatient therapy and medication management when discharged.

The Partial Hospitalization Program offers the structure of a psychiatric program while allowing patients to go home in the evening and remain connected with family, friends and other support systems.  The program is a highly structured program providing assessment and evaluation, psycho-education, individual, group and family therapy.
