Partial Hospitalization Program
The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) at CHNK Behavioral Health provides quality outpatient care for adults aged 18 and older who have been diagnosed with a significant mental illness and/or substance use disorder. Our treatment team is comprised of an advanced practice registered nurse, a board-certified psychiatrist, and licensed therapists. We use a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) informed approach to guide the program’s structure. Our trauma-informed approach to care creates a treatment environment that is safe, acknowledges human emotion and loss, and empowers future possibilities.
When to consider PHP
Individuals struggling with mental illness and/or a substance use disorder, and may require a structured treatment program outside of inpatient care, may benefit from PHP.
What to expect
Treatment takes place 5 days a week – Monday through Friday – for 4 hours each day. A typical day may include individual therapy, group therapy, skill-building, and medication management (if needed). Each client has an individualized treatment plan that is unique to their specific needs and developed in partnership with our treatment team.
Who is eligible?
Anyone over the age of 18 is eligible for the Partial Hospitalization Program.
Who will be working with me/my family?
Our team is comprised of licensed professional counselors (LPCA, LPCC) and clinical social workers (CSW, LCSW). Some clients may also benefit from medication management provided by our in-house Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner or from assistance that can be provided by one of our targeted case managers.
Where does treatment take place?
Partial Hospitalization Programming takes place at our Outpatient Office.
How long is treatment?
The length of treatment varies by client and their specific needs/progress, but the average length of engagement in the program is typically 4-6 weeks.

Partial Hospitalization Therapist
CHNK’s Adult PHP is a five-day, 4–6-week, program for clients who want to “build a life worth living.” Rooted in a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy framework, clients process emotions and behaviors with peers and licensed clinicians in a small group setting. The program runs 9am-1pm Monday through Friday. Group engages clients through DBT skills training, processing, recreational music making, mindfulness, psychological education, and optional medication management. Clients work with their treatment team on individualized treatment goals and towards the reduction of mental health symptomology. As a result, we have seen consistent reduction in mental health concerns through the duration of the program, all with a sense of fun and community.
PHP is just one step on an easier path to mental health.
At CHNK Behavioral Health, we are committed to creating an easier path to mental health by offering a wide array of treatment options. All services begin with the completion of a Comprehensive Assessment, where a Licensed Professional will work collaboratively with you to identify treatment service(s) that are tailored to the specific needs of you or your child/family.View All Services
