Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?
Farnum’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a level of care offered for clients who require more support than intensive outpatient but do not meet criteria for inpatient services. By engaging in PHP, clients can continue maintaining their outside responsibilities, while having the support of professionals and peers five days a week.

First, clients enter the program through our admissions program, Open Access. Open Access Assessments are conducted by skilled clinicians to determine the appropriate placement and level of care for the client. This is a walk-in service with locations in both Manchester, NH and Franklin NH.
Once the Partial Hospitalization Program is recommended as the appropriate level of care, the client will start to come to Farnum on a daily basis and return home after their sessions.
What to Expect
Farnum recognizes that there are individuals who can be successful in treatment by coming to Farnum on a daily basis but still returning home each day. By engaging in outpatient PHP, clients can continue maintaining their outside responsibilities, while having the support of professionals and peers five days per week, four hours each day. Also available to our outpatient PHP clients are family education and counseling as well as access to our psychiatric nurse practitioner. At times, Farnum will have clients participate in PHP but have them live at one of the Farnum facilities so they can still get the support of the program and the pseudo-Farnum family at night. We work closely with insurance companies to determine what can be covered for each individual.
Starting with an initial evaluation and continuing throughout the PHP program, client’s partner with their treatment team to develop an aftercare plan that may include a step down to intensive outpatient or individual therapy sessions.
