The Adult Partial Hospital Program at Rhode Island Hospital provides intensive, short-term treatment designed for individuals with acute psychiatric concerns. After completing a day of treatment, individuals return home for the evening. This minimizes disruption to their daily routines, maintains uninterrupted support of family and friends, and facilitates learning by encouraging immediate practice of newly acquired skills.

We believe that patients should have ample opportunity to speak with a specialist; therefore, patients are seen for individual sessions every day. We offer telephone consultation and send a detailed report to primary care physicians and outpatient behavioral health providers to help them provide their patients with the most informed and complete care and facilitate the transition to outpatient care after leaving the program.

Please note the Program requires a referral from a provider, which may include an outpatient mental health professional, primary care provider, emergency room, or hospital. Download the referral form here. For questions, please call 401-444-2128.

It can seem like a daunting task to take the first step to reach out for therapy, and I am always impressed when people do that. In addition to that very important first step, your relationship with your therapist is also incredibly important – to feel understood, and feel like this is someone you can work with. That is ultimately the core of a healthy, working relationship, and I am more than happy to work with you to ensure you feel that level of comfort with me, or with someone else.
