Sometimes hospitalization is not necessary or no longer required, but outpatient services may be too limited for a patient’s needs. For these individuals, Atlantic Behavioral Health offers an Acute Partial Hospitalization Program and an Intensive Outpatient Program that tailors treatment to each patient’s level of functioning.
Intensive Outpatient Program
Services are similar to inpatient hospitalization, except care is provided during a three-hour period, three to five days a week. Because patients in our program return home after treatment sessions, they can more quickly begin the transition to everyday living situations and challenges. The Intensive Outpatient Program is available at Newton Medical Center, outpatient services at Atlantic Rehabilitation and outpatient services at Overlook Medical Center.
Acute Partial Hospitalization Program
During sessions of approximately five to six hours per day, three to five days per week, we provide assessment; group, individual and family therapy; education; medication management; and therapeutic activities. Our staff of psychiatrists, clinical social workers and specialized counselors will help patients improve their daily functioning, better manage their psychiatric disorders and related issues, and work towards recovery. Acute partial hospitalization is available at Newton Medical Center.
