Allina Health Cambridge Partial Hospital and Day Treatment Programs

Partial Hospital Programs

When you need intensive care for a mental health condition, our outpatient partial hospitalization program is here to help.

Our two to four-week program is directed by a psychiatrist in a group therapy setting. It can help prevent and reduce hospitalization and support you or a loved one to remain in your home environment. Currently, the majority of our programming is provided in a virtual environment rather than onsite due to COVID-19.

What to expect

  • Daily schedule is structured as a combination of mental health group psychotherapy, activity groups and education groups.
  • Family therapy sessions are available upon request.
  • Four to Five hours of therapeutic programming, five days per week.
  • Program hours: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.; hours may vary slightly by location.
  • Short-term, intensive mental health treatment for adults as an alternative to inpatient hospitalization
  • A mix of virtual and face-to-face programming is available.
