Learn about the Delta Day Hospital Program at Delta Specialty Hospital

The Delta Day Hospital Program is an amazing outpatient treatment program that provides those who come to us for help a combination of ambulatory, active treatment programs that offer therapeutically intense, organized, and highly-structured clinical interventions. Our goal for our Day Programs is to help stabilize individuals who are struggling with psychiatric disorders in an outpatient setting. Our Day Programs are designed to provide an intensive level of care for our patients in order to prevent admission to our inpatient behavioral health unit. We also offer our Day Programs to provide additional clinical support for individuals who are stepping down from our inpatient program.

Levels of Care

Levels of care at Delta Specialty Hospital in Memphis, TN

Delta Specialty Hospital’s Delta Day Hospital Program provides two distinct levels of care. Admission to the programs is based on an assessment of needs, as well as certain admission criteria. An individual must be over the age of 18 and willing to participate in the treatment voluntarily. Symptoms or behaviors must not be a danger to the individual or others, but do impact educational, social, or occupational functioning. An individual joining our day program must not require 24-hour care, but requires clinical monitoring to prevent admission or readmission to our inpatient program.

Intensive Outpatient vs. Partial Hospitalization

Differences between IOP and PHP at Delta Specialty Hospital

We offer two different Day Hospital Programs for individuals who need focused outpatient therapy: Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Both programs will focus on psychological, psychosocial, and medication management. Our interdisciplinary committee composed of registered nurses, licensed social workers, and mental healthcare technicians operates under the direction of our psychiatrist who will make certain to meet all the needs of your treatment plan.

Our Intensive Outpatient Program is a step-down from our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and designed for individuals who have a strong social support network and stable home environment. IOP may be used as a step down from PHP or as a step up from traditional outpatient therapies.
