Adult Partial Hospitalization Program

Michigan Medicine’s Partial Hospitalization Program


The Adult Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a comprehensive patient care program providing intensive psychiatric treatment to individuals struggling with mood and anxiety disorders. Patients participate Monday through Friday for 6 hours during the day and return home in the evening. A typical length of stay in PHP is 10 weekdays. Patients work with an interdisciplinary team in a structured unlocked setting and participate in process group therapy, skills-based therapies of CBT and DBT, educational groups, and have regular contact with psychiatry providers for medication management.

We accept a variety of insurances and will check your policy to determine if treatment is covered and inform you of any expected costs such as copayments, deductibles, or co-insurance.

If you are interested in our program, please contact us at 734-764-1488.  We do require that your mental health provider make a referral on your behalf as we would expect you to return to your provider at the conclusion of our program. We will then schedule an initial evaluation to determine if PHP is an appropriate level of care and initiate enrollment into our program. Please understand that there is a waitlist with frequent fluctuating wait times. Evaluations are scheduled on a first available basis, and during times of high volume may be limited to established Michigan Medicine patients.
