Partial Hospital Program

Our outpatient programs are for adults age 18 and older, who do not require the 24-hour supervision provided by an inpatient program. Dallas Behavioral Healthcare Hospital’s Partial Hospitalization Program is our most intensive outpatient treatment program. Since participants live off-site, this program is a great way for them to transition from 24-hour care to a more independent lifestyle while still receiving intensive treatment.

Patients are often recommended for the program after a clinical and medical assessment. Assessments are conducted to determine the level of care needed and to discover which areas of the patient’s life are most affected. This enables us to personalize treatment and provide all the tools necessary for recovery. Learn more about our other behavioral health treatment programs here.


Patients participate in individual and small group therapy Monday through Friday from 9:00 am – 1:30 pm, including an onsite lunch break.
Patients are in treatment for four hours per day, five days a week.
