Benefits of Partial Hospitalization Programming 

If you are struggling with an eating disorder, mental health concern, the effects of trauma, or substance use disorder and you don’t seek professional help or programming, it can have a significant impact on your ability to function. The partial hospitalization program at Timberline Knolls can help you address the concerns that have disrupted your daily life. 

There are countless benefits to choosing the PHP at Timberline Knolls, including: 

  • Structured environment: When you take part in our PHP, you will follow a structured schedule each day that ensures that you receive a high level of care. 
  • Flexible living arrangements: After each treatment day is over, you can go home or stay in one of our on-campus lodges. 
  • Real-life skillbuildingYou’ll have the opportunity to practice the skills and coping techniques you learn in our PHP in real-life environments and bring any learning back to the program. 

Depending on your current needs, you may step down to our PHP from a higher level of care, or you may enter directly at the PHP level. Our expert staff can help you determine if our partial hospitalization program is the best fit for you or if you would benefit from a different level of care.

At the Timberline Knolls PHP, we offer supportive living housing options to our clients at an affordable cost.

Timberline Knolls’ PHP program has given me my life back. Stepping down to PHP with supportive living from Residential care was a huge help in allowing me to re-acclimate back into day-to-day life and responsibilities and prepared me for ultimate success in living independently when returning home. I was treated with love, respect, and care while I relearned how to be an adult in recovery. I owe my recovery to Timberline Knolls PHP. The staff, community, and supportive living made the difference between succeeding after discharge and meeting my goals, and staying stuck in my old ways and habits. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to change their life for the better.
