Peak Behavioral is here for you.
Peak Behavioral’s acute inpatient psychiatric services are designed to provide intensive, short-term care for individuals who are experiencing severe symptoms of mental illness or emotional distress. The goal is to stabilize patients who are in crisis and require immediate intervention.
During acute inpatient psychiatric services, patients receive 24-hour care from a team of mental health professionals, including psychiatrists, physicians, nurse practitioners, therapists, nurses, mental health technicians and others. Treatment typically includes a combination of medication management, individual and group therapy, and other supportive services.
Partial Hospitalization Program
The program provides support and treatment for adults facing emotional or mental difficulties, and who may have substance abuse problems. Partial hospitalization is an outpatient program for the diagnosis and/or active treatment of a serious mental disorder in a consistent, structured environment that allows patients to maintain their usual living arrangements with their families.
A PHP can function as a “step down” from hospitalization or a “step up” when outpatient treatment is not effectively meeting the patient’s needs. It is also a good transition from inpatient to outpatient care.
The level of care provided in a PHP is necessary to maintain the patient’s progress and prevent relapse or readmission to the hospital.
PHP is designed for those who do not require the intensity of a hospital setting but are still having some emotional or behavioral issues that need to be addressed more intensely than what can be provided in a traditional outpatient setting.
Adults in this program meet from 8:30am – 1:00pm 5 days a week, Monday – Friday, Treatment is usually from one to three weeks, depending on the person’s progress.
