Compass Health Center Programs for Young Adults (ages 18-24)

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

The Young Adult program is for adults ages 18 to 24 who are struggling with the transition to adulthood. Conditions preventing success in this transition may be related to depressionanxietybipolar disorder, ADHD and/or substance use. These conditions can lead to an inability to attend college, retain a job and live independently.  They also foster poor relationship development skills and a multitude of other “failure to launch” scenarios.  The PHP focus is on treatment goals and skill building relevant to this unique age group.

Our treatment plan includes individual and group therapy, peer support, psychiatric treatment and family therapy. This comprehensive treatment approach is designed to help the patient return to a more functional, healthy and independent life.

The average length of stay in the PHP is approximately 2-4 weeks. Due to individualized treatment plans, the length of PHP may vary.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

IOP provides short-term stabilization of patients who are having difficulty managing their symptoms in traditional outpatient treatment. The IOP  can be used as a bridging treatment between PHP and outpatient care or as an initial step in treatment.

The IOP treatment team will design individualized programs for patients with consideration to psychiatric diagnoses, developmental functioning, behavioral needs, family involvement and community resources. Our treatment plan includes individual and group therapy, peer support, psychiatric treatment and family therapy. This comprehensive approach is designed to help the patient return to a more functional, healthy and independent life.

Compass Health Center staff will decrease the amount of time a patient spends in the program as their symptoms and level of functioning improve. As they spend less time at Compass, our clinicians help them transition back to the community and outside providers.

The average length of stay in the IOP is approximately 2-4 weeks. Due to individualized treatment plans, the length of IOP may vary.
