Child and Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Programs

Child and Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Programs at The Horsham Clinic provide short-term and highly structured behavioral health treatment programs for children, pre-teens and teenagers who are experiencing psychiatric distress.

The program treats children, age 5 through 13, and teens, ages 14 through 18, if they are still in school. The goal of partial hospitalization is to offer a less restrictive alternative to children, teens and their families when inpatient treatment may not be appropriate. This program can also serve as an intermediate step for youths who are leaving an inpatient hospitalization as they prepare to prior to return to school and the community.
