Compass Virtual is pleased to announce expanded care options with the launch of our Virtual Evening Partial Hospitalization Program.
As anyone with a behavioral health diagnosis knows, many treatment options are available. Individuals with relatively mild symptoms may require weekly therapy, while there are those who can benefit from a stay at a residential facility or a psychiatric inpatient unit in moments of crisis. Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) fall in the middle of this continuum of behavioral healthcare and have long been considered a valuable option for individuals whose mental health symptoms are interfering significantly with daily life but who want to get better while falling asleep in their own bed each night.

Working with countless clinical experts, we developed a comprehensive, tailored approach to care that includes a mix of group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, and psychiatric care.

This program is designed for individuals whose behavioral health symptoms require PHP treatment but are unable to participate in morning programming for a wide range of reasons. The program, which opens June 6, 2022 (Compass Virtual will accept intake evaluations starting May 30th), delivers the full Compass Virtual Mood & Anxiety PHP program during the hours of 3 pm and
“Compass’ Evening Partial Hospitalization Program is designed to provide flexibility to those unable to join morning programs. By enrolling in a program that begins in the late afternoon through the evening, these patients will no longer have to choose between getting the care they need and fulfilling their daily obligations.”
