LLU Behavioral Medicine Center Partial Hospital Program

Adult Partial and Intensive Outpatient Program

cyclistThe Adult Partial and Intensive Outpatient Program is a hospital based outpatient program that provides psychiatric and chemical dependency treatment while allowing the patient to return home in the evening. This program serves as a "step down" or as a supportive means to prevent inpatient hospitalization. The goal is to assist patients in achieving the highest level of independence by utilizing therapy, psychotropic medications, and educational groups. Our staff of skilled and compassionate professionals are committed to helping patients realize their fullest potential.
