The Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital Adult Acute Partial Hospital Program Track I is for individuals currently suffering from acute psychiatric illness who can be reasonably expected to return to normal daily activities. (For information: Track II is designed for those who are suffering an acute exacerbation of a chronic mental illness).
The goals of the AAPHP include:
- Providing an alternative to hospitalization for patients not needing 24-hour supervision but still needing a high degree of therapeutic support.
- Shortening the length of inpatient stay for patients who do not need 24-hour supervision buhigh degree of therapeutic support.
The Adult Acute Partial Hospital Program uses psychoeducational, psychodynamic and activity group therapy approaches to actively engage patients in the process of learning more about their disorders, developing effective coping and interpersonal skills, and reintegrating themselves back into the community. Through discussions, exercises, role-playing and other activities, the groups for Track I and Track II (please see separate group listings for each) aim to develop patient competence in such aspects of daily living as:
- Goal Setting
- Stress Management and Relaxation
- Interpersonal Relations & Social Interaction
- Time Structuring
- Community Living
- Leisure Planning
