Adolescent partial hospitalization program

Adolescent partial hospitalization program at Abbott Northwestern - WestHealth

When your teen needs intensive care for a mental health condition, our partial hospitalization program is here. We help adolescents stay out of the hospital and get the support they need to heal in their community.

Our three-to-four week partial program is for school-age adolescents, ages 13 to 18. It is directed by a psychiatrist in a group therapy environment to help prevent and reduce hospitalization, maintain participation in school, and stabilize teens in their home environments.

Good for treating

Our program helps address:

  • mood disorders
  • trauma
  • attention disorders
  • anxiety
  • self-injurious behavior
  • suicidal thoughts or suicidal behavior
  • thought disorders

What it is

Your teen will work with a psychiatrist who:

  • evaluates current medications
  • assesses the need for medications during the program
  • determines psychological testing needs for further evaluation
  • makes additional therapeutic recommendations
  • collaborates with current outpatient providers

Group therapy

Our program offers a group therapy environment to help adolescents:

  • experience success
  • increase self-awareness
  • improve coping skills
  • develop interpersonal effectiveness
  • increase emotion regulation

Family involvement

Your family will participate in individual family sessions and a weekly multi-family therapy group, with topics such as:

  • building trust in the family relationship
