The Adult Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) at Bakersfield Behavioral Healthcare Hospital is an intensive, therapeutic program for adults facing emotional and behavioral challenges, including but not limited to mood disorders, issues of grief and loss, anxiety disorders, alcohol and medication abuse, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program at Stepping Stones is a structured program that provides group counseling and other therapeutic services in a compassionate, healing environment. This program is designed to meet the co-occurring mental health and substance abuse needs of adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17.
Approximately one in 11 people suffer with an addiction to alcohol or drugs, that’s roughly 22 million Americans. It is estimated that 60 percent of those with substance abuse issues have an underlying psychiatric disorder. Bakersfield Behavioral Health has created its Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) to meet the specialized needs of adults with substance abuse and mental health issues.
The objective of treatment is to promote the highest level of functioning with an emphasis on goal setting, crisis management, family support and the importance of routine outpatient care. Each person’s symptoms, strengths, family supports and discharge needs provide the basis for care from admission to discharge.
