Partial Hospitalization Programs

Take part in intensive partial hospitalization programs for adolescents and adults at Adventist HealthCare hospitals in Maryland. You’ll appreciate structure and personalized attention along with encouragement to enjoy your daily activities and independence.

What’s Partial Hospitalization?

Access skilled treatment and support while you live at home and enjoy your community. Partial hospitalization may let you avoid the need for full hospitalization, or may help you transition from inpatient to outpatient mental health care.

This program may not be right for you if you have severe symptoms or you need 24/7 care.

What to Expect

Receive treatment at an Adventist HealthCare facility during the day. You may go to work or school and spend time with loved ones in the late afternoon and evening.

Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program

The Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) at Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center provides full-day treatment virtually for individuals 13 to 17 years of age who have a primary mood disorder, the ability to participate in group therapy, and a reliable and secure access to the Internet.

The Adolescent PHP is a voluntary program which utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in a group setting.

*The PHP will re-open on June 13 virtually*


8:30 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.

How does it help?

The PHP is based on an evidence supported curriculum that promotes behavioral wellness in adolescents while focusing on the development and reinforcement of healthy coping techniques, self-esteem, improved communication skills, healthy decision making, and mindfulness techniques. In the program, adolescents are evaluated by a psychiatrist at least once a week and receive daily intensive group therapy.
