Northeast Health System offers daytime programs that provide alternatives to hospitalization for psychiatric illness and addictions. Clients are supervised while participating in the programs, but sleep at home and maintain their independent functioning and ties to their family and community. The programs are located at Beverly Hospital, BayRidge Hospital in Lynn, and Addison Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester. Transportation is provided where available so that the Partial Hospital Programs are accessible to clients throughout the North Shore.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Partial Hospitalization Program offers special tracks for mental health and addiction/dual diagnosis. Located on the campuses of Beverly Hospital and BayRidge Hospital in Lynn, Partial Hospitalization is an intensive, short-term and high structured treatment program designed to continue gains and to prevent relapse and hospital admission. Participants receive individualized, goal-oriented psychotherapeutic and educational treatment to support their recovery efforts, whether from mental illness, addiction, or both.

  • Identification of behavior and attitude changes necessary to achieve and maintain successful recovery, including how to effectively manage relapse
  • Education of participants and their families regarding the factors that may have led to the episode
  • Arrangements for ongoing outpatient treatment and when indicated, participation in community-based AA or NA meetings
