This program focuses on crisis management and prevention for people with depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, suicidal tendencies, or other mental health issues.
Inpatient hospitalizations, which usually last five to six days, include individual and group therapy sessions; therapeutic recreational activities such as music, dance, and art; and pastoral care. Patients learn to recognize stressors and develop healthy coping mechanisms.
Patients may be admitted on a voluntary or involuntary basis, but our philosophy is to employ the least restrictive methods possible. That means we don’t curtail our patients’ privileges any more than absolutely necessary. With a physician’s order, patients are generally able to leave the locked unit for brief periods. They are encouraged to enjoy their surroundings and to take advantage of the fully equipped gym.
After leaving the program, patients are encouraged to check in periodically with us, or return as needed to stabilize a crisis situation. At the time of discharge, we refer our patients to our hospital-based outpatient programs or to individual community practitioners for continued treatment.
We provide services for adults 18 years old and above through our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Both programs provide treatment during the day so you can return home at night. Let us help you determine which program would best support you.
Our programs serve adults:
Our approach to care combines the latest techniques for recovery and improvement including group and individual therapy, written information, discussion, journaling, worksheets, videos, art activities, drama therapy, games, and role playing.

Adult Outpatient Services are covered by most insurance plans and self-pay finance plans. John Muir Health accepts most major private health insurance.
The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is an intensive day treatment program for adults 18 years and older who need crisis intervention or short-term stabilization. It also helps people make the transition from inpatient care to home or to prevent hospitalization. Patients attend treatment programs during the daytime.
