Partial Hospitalization Program

Partial Hospitalization Program

The Partial Hospitalization Program from Rivendell Behavioral Health Services serves children and adolescents aged 5-18.

Our specialized child and teen PHP program is designed to help young people who do not meet medical necessity for inpatient hospitalization, but who need more intensive help than just regular outpatient care.

To start, potential patients will follow our initial assessment process and will be admitted into the program by a physician through a physician’s order.

Individuals will be provided four hours of intense group therapy five days a week for two or three weeks. Patients will also receive individual/family therapy sessions as needed along with a minimum weekly physician and/or nurse practitioner contact.

Who is our PHP Program for?

Child and adolescent PHP is for males and females ages 5-18. Eighteen-year-old patients must be enrolled in school. Our program is perfect for teens in the Bowling Green/Warren County area but is also an option for teens and children in our surrounding counties.

The Adolescent PHP is also the next step for all local patients discharging from our New Direction program. The Children’s PHP is the next step for patients in the Changes program.

The goal is to stabilize our patients during their inpatient stay and increase post-discharge success by continuing to attend PHP.
