Admission Process
Patients must have an evaluation before joining the PHP. 
Monday – Friday during normal business hours, call 812-471-4611 to schedule an evaluation.
After normal business hours and on the weekend, call 812-476-7200 or toll free 800-947-6789 to schedule an evaluation.

During your evaluation (over the phone or in person), our staff member will ask you questions about your symptoms, needs, any medication you take, and medical history. This information helps the team decide if PHP is the best choice for you, and if so, create an individualized treatment plan to help you feel better.

Preparing for Partial Hospitalization
The information below will help you know what to expect during the Partial Hospitalization Program. 

What you bring
On your first day, bring a photo ID and your medical insurance card. You may want to bring a light jacket as the temperature in the group room varies.

What we provide
Lunch, snacks, and drinks will be provided, along with paper and pens.

How often will you see the psychiatrist (doctor)?
You will see the psychiatrist on your first day and at least once per week while you are in PHP. Other clinical staff members are available every day to answer questions or help with medication concerns.

What you do
During your time in PHP, you will attend group therapy and work on getting medications adjusted. You may also have individual and/or family therapy sessions. You will meet with the psychiatrist at least once per week. There will be a lunch break each day and additional breaks with snacks and drinks. (Food is provided to you.) 

How long you will be in treatment
The length of treatment is based on your needs but the average time in the program is 2-3 weeks. Each week, the treatment team meets to review your progress and recommend what you do next. The program is voluntary and you are able to end your treatment at any time; however, we encourage you to work with us for the best possible outcome. 

Starting a treatment program can feel overwhelming. Please tell us how to help you adjust to the PHP and we will do our best to support your needs. 

Can you work at your job and be in PHP?
Daily attendance is very important for success in the PHP. Most people find it difficult to continue working while in the program; however, we will assist you with any FMLA, short-term disability and/or work absence paperwork you may need. If your work schedule does not interfere with your attendance in PHP and you would like to continue working, we will do our best to accommodate you.

Reschedule doctor’s appointments and other therapy sessions
You will need to reschedule any other therapy or psychiatry appointments that happen while you are in the PHP. You will need to return to your doctor or therapist once the PHP is complete. Our team can help you communicate with your providers and make sure follow-up appointments are scheduled within a reasonable time from the end of your treatment with us.

Confidentiality and Privacy
We pride ourselves on having respectful and professional employees who follow the strictest ethical guidelines in regard to your privacy. If you have any questions or concerns about how we protect your privacy, please ask a staff member.
