Partial Day Hospitalization Psychiatric Services for Adults

NewYork-Presbyterian offers several outpatient day psychiatric care programs.

Columbia Day Program

The Columbia Day Program is a unique, intensive outpatient clinic in Midtown Manhattan for individuals experiencing significant difficulties with school or work due to mental illness or addiction. Our patients benefit from our enhanced support to make a positive return to daily life and their educational or professional pursuits.

We provide scheduling flexibility for those who want to maintain involvement in school, work, or other activities. We collaborate with Columbia’s Lieber Recovery Clinic to help patients with executive functioning issues such as memory, concentration, and problem-solving. We work closely with parents, siblings, and partners.

The Adult Partial Hospital Program (PHP) provides comprehensive evaluation and intensive treatment to adults 18 years of age and older with acute psychiatric illnesses, including psychosis, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, personality disorders, post-traumatic stress, and secondary addiction disorders. A structured, supportive environment is provided for those who can live in the community and can be treated outside of the inpatient setting, functioning to avert or shorten inpatient hospitalizations.

An interdisciplinary team of psychiatrists, social workers, psychologists, certified alcohol and substance abuse counselor, occupational, recreational and creative arts therapists staff the program. PHP can be attended daily or as an Intensive Outpatient basis, as clinically determined. Individuals generally participate for two to six weeks.
