Help with Achieving Emotional Stability

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) bridges the gap between hospital and community programs. It provides an alternative to hospitalization for people with mental illness who require more intensive treatment than outpatient office visits, but less than 24-hour inpatient care.

We help patients reach their wellness goals through individual treatment planning provided by a team of psychiatrists, social workers and nurses. Collaboration between our team of professionals, the patient and family, and community resources, helps patients reach their highest level of emotional stability and independent living.

Treatment is focused on group therapy activities and skills building. Patients are taught how to manage emotions, distorted thought patterns, and belief systems that contribute to their emotional distress. Wellness and stress relief are also addressed. The goal is to reduce psychiatric symptoms to prevent inpatient hospitalization.

Program Features:

  • Introduction to DBT skills
  • Core mindfulness
  • Interpersonal effectiveness
  • Emotional regulation
  • Distress tolerance

Program Hours:

The PHP operates Monday through Friday from 8:45 am - 2:20 pm. A separate intake assessment appointment is required prior to beginning the program. For more information, please call us at 207-283-7660, or fax us at 207-283-7664.

Integrated Medicated-Assisted Treatment (IMAT) is very effective for people struggling with opiod use disorder. IMAT combines talk therapy (either individual or group counseling) with medicines that can control cravings and lessen withdrawal symptoms. The medicines help a person feel normal again so they can focus on therapy and help rebuild their life. This therapy can continue as long as medically needed. The medicines used are:

  • Buprenorphine (pronounced byoo-pre-nor-feen), also called Suboxone
  • Methadone (available only at a methadone clinic)
  • Naltrexone (nal-trek-sohn)
