partial hospitalization programOur partial hospitalization program (PHP) at Sunrise Vista is a daytime mental health treatment program for adults who are in need of structured, compassionate psychological and psychiatric support beyond what they would get in a Canton psychiatrist or psychologist’s office. Patients who have recently completed an inpatient psychiatric program often find that our partial hospitalization program can serve as a stepping stone back to the realities of everyday life while still providing the following:

  • Full-day curriculum
  • Individual therapy
  • Small group therapy
  • Life skills assistance
  • Trauma therapy
  • Recreational activities
  • Medication management
  • Meals and nutritional counseling

After attending a day of treatment, patients in our partial hospitalization program return home in the evenings. Our staff takes a respectful, compassionate, research-based approach to treating mental health concerns; we believe that needing help managing responsibilities, emotions, and medications can happen to anyone. Helping people get back on their feet and on with their lives is our top priority. We accept patients who have completed one of our inpatient psychiatric programs along with patients who have been referred by another Canton behavioral health center.

What Happens in a PHP?


During your outpatient treatment at Sunrise Vista’s PHP in Canton, OH, our dedicated clinicians will introduce you to evidence-based and holistic therapies to help with stress management, life skills, and conflict resolution. Another essential component of the program is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which allows patients to identify and change negative thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in response to external stimuli, past trauma, and internal conflicts. Our PHP is geared toward adult and geriatric patients who are stepping down from inpatient care and require treatment that can help them prevent the need for hospitalization.

Stability Starts at Sunrise Vista

Learning how to cope with negative feelings like depression, anxiety, isolation, and anger is another central component of our partial hospitalization program. Finding new approaches to boost new thinking and behavior patterns is at the heart of this effective treatment method. Identifying triggers is another way to support your recovery. Although it’s impossible to avoid every trigger, learning how to approach them is one of the essential strategies we teach at Sunrise Vista.
