Our outpatient treatment options for mental health disorders at Delta in Memphis, TN

As we are committed to continuity of care, we have designed two outpatient treatment options from those who don’t need the structure and level of care provided by an inpatient unit but need a higher level of services than provided by traditional outpatient therapy.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) – This treatment provides a similar level of service to our inpatient care but allows you to sleep at home and begin re-assuming responsibilities for your life. Our PHP meets five days a week for a total of 20 hours of services weekly, though this may be adjusted based on your individual treatment plan.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) – This treatment is intended for those who are ready to re-enter their lives and begin integrating back into their homes, jobs, and communities.
