Bournewood's Mental Health Partial Hospital Program is a group program providing a step-down or diversionary service for adults in mental health crisis who need more intensive treatment than can be provided in an outpatient setting, but who can appropriately receive treatment and services in the community.  We employ evidence-based approaches to provide treatment to patients in crisis.


The Mental Health Partial Hospital Program is particularly appropriate for adults with mood or anxiety disorders, as well individuals with other major mental illness who can appropriately participate in a group setting.  Medication and case management services are available in this program.


We offer a variety of group modalities. Our compassionate clinicians meet the person where they are in the course of their conditions as we work as a team to help individuals reach their goals of recovery.






Bournewood takes a personalized approach in its treatment and services for individuals with mental health and/or substance use conditions. This partial hospital program is for those who need intensive treatment but not in a 24/7 inpatient setting. The Dual Diagnosis Partial Hospital Program operates Monday through Friday and can serve as a step-down or stand-alone service option.


Like all of Bournewood's adult Partial Hospital Programs, this service is covered by most major insurance providers, including Medicare, Medicaid and the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Partnership.


Bournewood's Adolescent Partial Hospital program provides a voluntary intensive and brief treatment option for youth ages 12 to 18 who have acute psychiatric and/or substance use conditions and difficulty in school.


We take a team approach, involving family members, outpatient providers and others who will work with our experts to develop an individualized treatment plan for each adolescent in the program. Stabilizing psychiatric symptom presentation and working with family systems issues is a hallmark of this program, all to develop successful strategies for school re-entry. During the school year, a certified licensed teacher is part of the team and provides continuity to youth whose studies are interrupted by the need for hospital level of care.
