The Mt. Blanc Partial Hospitalization Program is a comprehensive short term partial hospitalization program that provides treatment and support for adults facing emotional or mental difficulties or who have substance abuse problems. It is an intensive day treatment program for those who require a high level of support and structure. The participants receive treatment from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday. They return home each evening to maintain important links to their family and community and to practice new skills that promote confidence and independence.
The multidisciplinary treatment team members utilize a variety of treatment approaches to move patients toward recovery. Our groups focus on teaching participants about their illness (psycho-education); how to relate to family and friends (interpersonal techniques) and how to deal with the world around them (skill building, distress tolerance, emotional regulation and mindfulness). The structured format provides medical monitoring, therapeutic groups and individual and family therapy to address the needs of the individual participants. The program’s supportive format reduces feelings of isolation and hopelessness. Participants discover they are not alone in their struggle for emotional and mental wellness. Our goal is to help participants get back into their lives and maintain healthy ways of living.
