Partial Hospitalization Program for Adults
Ascent is Highlands Behavioral Health System’s partial hospitalization program, often called PHP. This program is for adults and serves individuals dealing with mental and emotional disorders. It may be an alternate option when conventional outpatient therapy is not sufficient or for those transitioning out of inpatient care. Ascent allows patients to receive structured treatment during the day through several hours of therapy and skill building groups. Treatment includes cognitive-behavioral therapy and development of coping strategies in a supportive recovery environment.
