Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program (Lowell Treatment Center)

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) serves adolescents ages 13 through 18. Patients are referred directly to the program as an alternative to inpatient hospitalization, or as a transition from inpatient programs. The program is completely voluntary, and as such, fosters an environment of trust, caring and support with an eye to permanent, long-term change. The program views problems systematically, and involves both the patient and his or her family in the therapeutic process whenever appropriate. The PHP staff are sensitive and responsive to the individual needs of each patient, and provide a comprehensive spectrum of services. Program runs from 9:30am – 3:00pm and includes psychotherapeutic groups such as illness education, addiction education, medication education, relapse prevention/weekend planning, de-escalation and anger management, conflict resolution, communication skills, self-esteem development, coping skills, and family and peer relationships. (accepts most insurances)
