Adult Partial Hospital Programs

Young Adult Track

The Young Adult Track at the Adult Partial Hospital Program at Rhode Island Hospital is for individuals age 18 to 26 who are struggling with psychiatric illness and the transition to adulthood. Conditions preventing success in this transition may be related to depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, psychosis and substance abuse. These conditions can lead to an inability to attend college, retain a job and live independently.

Our age-appropriate and tailored treatment includes individual and group therapy, peer support, psychiatric treatment and family intervention. This comprehensive treatment approach is designed to help the patient return to a more functional, healthy and independent life.

The average length of stay in our program is approximately two weeks. However, each patient has an individualized treatment plan, so the timing may vary.
