Adult Partial Hospital

adult partial hospital program

Due to COVID related concerns, we are unable to provide our in-person option at this time. We are still running virtually and accepting referrals. Our virtual sessions take place on a secure and confidential platform. For more information, please contact nsmcadultphp@partners.orgWe will update this page once our in-person program re-opens.

For patients 18 years and older

Our program offers intensive, five-days-a-week support for individuals who need more structure and clinical care than can be provided at an outpatient level for treatment of psychiatric or dual diagnosis issues. We offer both in-person and virtual options for care. Our in-person sessions do require that you are vaccinated. 

Our day program begins at 8 a.m. We are a sober program for all participants. In a therapeutic environment it helps to support one another in this way. Medication management is provided and abstaining from substances helps to ensure proper monitoring and safety.

We are a member of Mass General Brigham and work closely with Massachusetts General Hospital, McLean Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
