Partial Hospitalization Program

Palmetto Summerville Behavioral Health offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for children and adolescents, ages 7-17, offering mental health services in a structured, day treatment setting. This program can be the solution for your child or teen who needs to address their mental health needs.

Our PHP is offered Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., for a total of 30 treatment hours per week. Patients are thoroughly evaluated by a psychiatrist and a customized treatment plan is established to promote emotional development. Our therapeutic treatment can change unhealthy behaviors and give our patients the best chance for a successful future.

PHP is comprised of:

  • group therapy
  • family therapy
  • medication management
  • psychiatric evaluations
  • educational support
  • recreational therapy
  • social skills instruction

  • depression

  • self-injurious behaviors
  • impulsive behaviors
  • trauma recovery
  • bipolar disorder
  • significant mental illness
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
