For patients not requiring an inpatient level of care, Kempsville Center for Behavioral Health provides Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) as an outpatient service for children and teens, ages 11-18.
PHP addresses the developmental, emotional, and psychiatric concerns of each patient through a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy focus. During the stay, your child will receive medication management, individual, group, activity and family therapy.
Our PHP team includes a psychiatrist, therapist, a nurse, mental health technician(s) and other allied therapy professionals.
The treatment day starts promptly at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Treatment is different for every child. The average length of stay for PHP will vary from 3-6 weeks. Your child’s therapist will talk with you more about this after the first few days of treatment and it will be evaluated weekly.
