Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program
The Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program (APHP) is an outpatient service that treats 12-18 year-olds who are suffering from behavioral or emotional difficulties. Our program provides assessment, crisis stabilization and treatment for children with a mood disorder, emotional difficulties or maladaptive behaviors.
Our discharge planning includes assisting your child and your family with community agencies and providers to ensure successful care of your child’s mental health following discharge from the program.
We tailor treatment to your child’s individual needs. Treatment options can include:
- Academic support
- Individual, group and family therapy
- Medication management
- Nursing management
- Occupational therapy
- Psychiatric evaluation by a child and adolescent psychiatrist
With this outpatient program, your child can stay at home in a familiar environment during daily treatment. Our certified teachers will work with your child’s school to provide academic support.
By entrusting us in your child’s care, you have access to a comprehensive treatment team that includes:
- Child and adolescent psychiatrists
- Licensed clinical social workers
- Missoula County Public School educators
