Outpatient Programs

Psychiatric Partial Hospitalization Program.

The Frederick Health Psychiatric Partial Hospitalization Program (PPHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (PPHP/IOP) provide treatment for adults with psychiatric disorders and co-occurring substance use disorders that require a higher level of care. They can prevent hospitalization or provide a “step down” from inpatient treatment. Our goals are to get patients stable and help them ease back into career, community, and family.

For more information about PHPP/IOP or the admissions process,
contact us at 240-566-3900.

Patients work with a team of experts, including psychiatrists, social workers, and nurses, who provide:

  • Assessment
  • Treatment planning
  • Medication management
  • Group, individual, and family therapy
  • Educational groups
  • Case management
  • Transition and aftercare

The PPHP is a 5 day/week, 6.5 hours/day program. The IOP is 3–5-days/week, 3 hours/day, and is often a step down from the PPHP. On average, our patients stay in these programs between one and three weeks.

How to Access PPHP/IOP:

To be part of the PPHP or IOP, you will need a referral from the Frederick Health Emergency Department Crisis Management Services; the Frederick Health Behavioral Health Unit; other inpatient psychiatric facilities; or outpatient psychiatrists and therapists in the community.
