FAQs About Highland Springs

What is the difference between inpatient, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient services?

Inpatient is a short-term, 24-hour intensive treatment program provided in a safe and secure hospital setting. It includes 24-hour nursing care and daily provider visits not available on an outpatient basis.

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a therapeutic and recovery-focused program. PHP is a viable alternative to 24-hour inpatient hospitalization for those who need intensive support outside of a traditional hospital setting. Treatment involves a combination of behavioral and holistic therapies, wellness education, recreational activities and medication management. Holistic therapies include yoga, art therapy, music therapy and pet therapy.
The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a step-down from partial hospitalization, and provides structured therapy three days a week. Patients typically spend 9–12 hours per week in the program. On-site group therapy, education, training and skill building may be offered as part of intensive outpatient treatment.

How long will my treatment last?

Our care is individualized to each patient. The length of your program will be determined based upon your treatment needs and goals that are identified between you, your assigned provider, and the treatment team.
