ACUTE INTENSIVE SERVICES INFORMATION SHEET
What is this program?
Edgewood’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) assists children and adolescents in need of stabilization across a wide range of challenges. Through our program we address high risk emotional issues that can result in family conflict, school failure, poor peer relationships, and aggressive or self-harming behaviors.
What Services Do You Offer?
We specialize in diagnostic assessment and psychotropic medication evaluation and management. Our goal is to make it easier for youth to receive acute care while remaining in their homes or community placement, rather than a hospital or emergency room. We provide thorough and collaborative treatment plans that address the needs of youth and support their quality of life.
Our multidisciplinary team utilizes a strengths-based approach to promote safety, teach useful skills, and adapt treatment plans as needed. Youth in this program have opportunities to practice and develop skills and relationships through opportunities provided on our seven-acre campus. Other services we provide include:
- Short term assessment and stabilization
- On-site psychiatry and nursing
- Short- and long-term treatment plans
- Intensive, family-focused case management
- Skills building and therapeutic groups
- Support groups for parents and families
Who is this for?
Edgewood’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) services are for youth between ages 12 and 17 who are struggling with severe mental health, behavioral, and emotional challenges.
