What is a PHP & IOP Program?

Our Evanston Clarity Clinic location offers both Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Programs. These therapeutic programs are crafted to offer group-based treatment options for individuals contending with acute psychiatric symptoms or grappling with mental health disorders.

Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) provides more intensive treatment than our IOP. Participants attend group treatment sessions for four hours a day, five days a week, allowing participants to return home or to a supportive environment outside of treatment hours. PHP offers a higher level of support and structure than IOP. In addition to the mandatory 20 hours of weekly group sessions, participants in the PHP program must allocate extra time for individual therapy, treatment planning sessions, family/support persons therapy as advised, and psychiatric monitoring.

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (PHP) involves participants attending group treatment sessions for three hours a day, three to five days a week depending on the participant's assessed needs. Participants can return home or to a supportive environment outside of treatment hours. In addition to the required 9-15 hours per week of group sessions, the IOP program necessitates allocating extra time for individual therapy and optional medication management.

What is the difference between PHP/IOP - Clarity Clinic

At Clarity Clinic Evanston, our PHP and IOP Programs are dedicated to providing essential mental health support, aiming to stabilize individuals with comprehensive psychiatric and therapeutic care. We emphasize the teaching of coping skills and strategies for managing recurrences, supporting individuals in their journey toward wellness. These programs offer a viable alternative to inpatient hospitalization, offering a step-up for those requiring additional support without the intensity of acute care. Moreover, they facilitate a step-down from acute care, allowing individuals to access essential support while remaining connected to their communities and support networks.

Clarity Clinic Evanston Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

What to Expect from Clarity Clinic's Evanston PHP Program

Our Evanston Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) provides a more comprehensive level of care compared to our IOP Program. Our PHP Program takes place from 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, 20 hours per week. Based on individual circumstances, it's often advisable for individuals to consider taking a break from school and/or work to prioritize their mental health treatment. Our patients engage daily in a combination of group and individual therapy sessions facilitated by our licensed therapists.

In addition to the 20-hours a week of group work that this program requires, PHP will also require participants to set aside additional time for individual therapy, treatment planning sessions, family/support persons therapy as recommended, and psychiatric monitoring.

During your initial day, you'll have the chance to meet your treatment team, familiarize yourself with the program, and gain insight into the treatment process. Additionally, you'll engage in group sessions and receive information regarding the program's structure, weekly schedules, and upcoming group activities. Please be aware that grab-and-go meals will be provided for your convenience during group sessions.

The length of PHP treatment is determined by individual progress, with the goal typically being a transition to IOP, representing a less intensive level of behavioral health care.
