Day Treatment (Partial Hospitalization Program) for teens & young adults

We provide an intensive level of mental health treatment to young people in crisis due to severe and acute psychiatric symptoms. Often, this level of care can be an alternative to hospitalization, or can be an appropriate place to land after a brief crisis stabilization inpatient stay. Our highly skilled staff offers effective individualized treatment for a wide range of mental health concerns that may include severe depression, suicidal ideation, a history of self-harming behaviors, emotional imbalance and other forms of serious emotional difficulty.

This five-day-a-week intensive program focuses on treatment of acute symptoms and can be an alternative to inpatient hospitalization.

What is Psychiatric Day Treatment?

The Potomac Pathways Partial Day Hospitalization Program (also called “Psychiatric Day Treatment” or just “Day Treatment”) is a mental health program provided for teens and young adults during school-day hours (9am-2pm), with a focus on mental health treatment including individual therapy, family therapy, medication management, and skills groups. We also provide a time during the day, with clinical support, for the young people in the program to focus on their school work, as provided by their school, without falling behind. Highly trained clinical staff support the teens and young adults throughout the day in the therapeutic milieu.

If you have a family member who may benefit from this level of support, please contact us to discuss, and for more information.
