What to Expect During PHP Treatment for Young Adults

At Yellowbrick, our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers a comprehensive and supportive environment for individuals seeking intensive treatment while maintaining connections with their daily lives. So, what can young adults expect during PHP treatment at Yellowbrick, and how can it be a transformative step toward healing and growth?

Comprehensive Assessment and Individualized Treatment Plan

At the outset of PHP treatment, young adults undergo a comprehensive assessment by our multidisciplinary team of clinicians. This assessment evaluates their mental health needs, strengths, and goals, allowing us to tailor a personalized treatment plan that addresses their unique circumstances.

Structured Daily Programming

Young adults enrolled in PHP treatment at Yellowbrick participate in structured daily programming to foster growth and recovery. Our programs incorporate a blend of therapeutic modalities, including individual therapy, group therapy, skill-building workshops, and educational sessions.

Collaborative Therapeutic Environment

PHP treatment at Yellowbrick emphasizes collaboration and community support. Young adults engage in therapeutic activities alongside their peers, fostering a sense of camaraderie and mutual support. Our clinicians provide guidance and encouragement, empowering individuals to share their experiences and learn from one another.

Focus on Skill-Building and Coping Strategies

Throughout PHP treatment, young adults learn practical coping strategies and skill-building techniques to manage their mental health challenges effectively. These skills include mindfulness practices, emotion regulation techniques, communication skills, and stress management strategies, equipping individuals with the tools they need to navigate daily life more confidently.

Integration of Family Support and Involvement

Family involvement is integral to the success of PHP treatment at Yellowbrick. We recognize the importance of family support in the healing process and actively involve loved ones in therapy sessions and treatment planning. Our family therapy sessions provide a safe and supportive space for open communication, healing, and reconciliation.

Gradual Transition and Aftercare Planning

As young adults progress through partial hospitalization, our team collaborates with them to plan for a gradual transition back to their daily lives. We work together to identify resources, support networks, and coping strategies to facilitate a successful transition and minimize the risk of relapse. Additionally, our aftercare services provide ongoing support and guidance to individuals navigating post-treatment challenges.
