Our Day Hospital is a combination of psychotherapies and medication management provided daily, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Our objective is to stabilize you, keep you out of crisis, and keep you out of the hospital.
The Day Hospital staff is trained, compassionate, and effective in caring for our patients. Unlike most other day treatment programs, a psychiatrist is present and available on a daily basis to evaluate a patient's progress in individual psychothrerapy, adjust medicines, and to supervise the Aspen Day Treatment staff. Our psychiatrist will speak with the patient's personal physician to provide the best possible care and improve well-being.
Our goal at Aspen is to improve patients through effective and compassionate treatment within a comfortable, bright, and receptive environment. We know that most psychiatric treatment offered today is quick, superficial, and heavily focused on medication. At Aspen's Day Hospital, our focus is on deeper, more intense understanding of personal struggles. For people that do want to talk and get more attention, Aspen's Day Hospital will give you the care that you have been looking for.
Who is a good fit for the Day Hospital?
Someone who has a primary mental health condition
