When is Attleboro Center PHP appropriate?

Attleboro Center PHP is used as a time-limited response to stabilize acute symptoms. As such, it can be used both as a transitional level of care, such as a step-down from inpatient services, as well as a stand-alone, diversionary level of care to stabilize a child’s deteriorating condition, support him/her in remaining in the community, and avert hospitalization. Our treatment efforts focus on the child’s response during PHP program hours, as well as the continuity and transfer of treatment skills gained to the child’s non-program hours in the home/community.

PHP Services:

Highly structured therapeutic milieu; psychiatric evaluation; medication management; individual, group, and family clinical services; peer support and/or other recovery-oriented services; and behavioral and safety plan development.
