Youth Partial Hospitalization Program

The Youth Partial Hospitalization Program, a part of The Queen’s Medical Center’s Behavioral Health Services, provides a five-day-per-week treatment focused on youth with behavioral and psychiatric problems who are in need of intensive supervision and treatment. In this program, patients are monitored while provided with daily psychiatric care. Patients learn how to change problematic behavior and thought processes within their everyday environment. Through active, positive behavior, they are able to practice their new skills in the community.

The program provides a range of treatment and support services for children and adolescents, ages 12-18, including:

  • Academic and educational support and coordination with schools
  • Anger management
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy
  • Illness education
  • Individual, family, and group therapy
  • Psychiatric treatment
  • Substance abuse education

These services are covered by most insurance companies. Day Treatment Services provides a nutritious lunch and other necessary supplies. Transportation to and from treatment should be provided by the minor’s caregiver.


“I came to Queen’s needing a lot of help. The five-day program helped me to understand my illness, which was important to me. The one-on-one with my counselor was extremely helpful. All of the staff are so caring and yet run a strict program. This is a facility where a person who really wants help and is committed can learn how to live in society as a clean and sober person and become valuable again.”

“I think Queen’s Day Treatment is very helpful to me because I got to learn about myself. My daily homework teaches me about my symptoms and triggers. I am learning new ways of thinking about myself and how to deal with different situations. It has opened my eyes to see all the nuances of life and to choose a healthier way of living by being open, honest, consistent and reliable to a life of sobriety.”
