The Partial Hospitalization Program is designed for individuals between the ages of 4 and 17 who are experiencing emotional or behavioral problems. The level of treatment within the Partial Hospitalization Program provides many of the same therapy disciplines and educational components as a traditional inpatient program, meanwhile allowing the individual to continue working on their treatment in the family and community setting. Partial Hospitalization Program provides intensive and structured treatment during the transition from an inpatient treatment program to home and school or when outpatient therapy alone is not enough to be effective.
The individual’s participation in the program usually lasts 10 to 15 days, but varies according to individual needs.
The goal of the Streamwood Behavioral Healthcare System Partial Hospitalization Program is to identify and build upon the individual’s strengths and to assist them in returning to an optimal level of productivity.
Individuals in the program attend many group sessions which include but are not limited to:
- Coping Skills
- Substance Abuse
- Conflict Resolution and Anger Management
- Expressive Therapy
- Health Education and Nutrition
- Daily Education/Tutoring
- Effective Communication
The groups enable the multi-disciplinary team consisting of a psychiatrist, nurse, licensed therapist, certified teacher, and behavioral health technicians to evaluate and assist the individual in their recovery, gain insight into problems, and discover more successful behaviors.
