Admissions Information

Details about who we serve in our adult PHP in Texarkana, AR

The partial hospitalization program (PHP) at our center in Texarkana, Arkansas, is designed for adults age 18 and older. Our PHP welcomes adults of all genders.

Many adults transition to PHP after completing inpatient or residential programming. For these individuals, PHP provides essential step-down support to help them maintain and build on the progress they made during their previous treatment experience.

Our PHP also accepts adults who are entering treatment at this level, or those who are stepping up to PHP because they were not making appropriate progress at a lower level of care.

In all cases, PHP serves adults who can benefit from a full day of therapeutic services but whose symptoms do not warrant round-the-clock monitoring or supervision.

The following are among the many mental and behavioral health concerns for which an adult can receive care via the Riverview Behavioral Health PHP:

  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Schizoaffective disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other trauma-related concerns
  • Psychosis
  • Suicidal ideation

PHP at our center in Texarkana, Arkansas, may also be an ideal placement for adults who have a dual diagnosis, which means they have been experiencing both a substance use disorder and a mental health challenge.

All decisions regarding admission to our adult PHP are based on a detailed review of each person’s needs, goals, and treatment history.

Benefits of PHP

How our partial hospitalization program in Texarkana, AR, prepares adults to achieve their mental and behavioral health goals

The Riverview Behavioral Health partial hospitalization program in Texarkana, Arkansas, offers an array of benefits to adults who have been living with mental and behavioral health challenges.

First, during your time in PHP, you will follow a structured daily schedule that will include a variety of beneficial therapeutic interventions, interactions with a team of experienced clinical professionals, and opportunities to form productive relationships with others who have been experiencing similar challenges.

Mental and behavioral health concerns can cause you to withdraw from friends, family members, and other valuable sources of interpersonal support. The resulting isolation can complicate your ability to achieve improved health. During your time in PHP, you will understand that you are not alone, and you will benefit from the power of our healing community.

While you’re in PHP, you will spend a considerable amount of time taking part in therapy. But you will also have many opportunities in the evenings and on weekends to practice the skills you’ve been working on. Then when you return to PHP, you can process your experiences, discuss your successes and setbacks, and further enhance your capabilities.

As you prepare to transition out of PHP, you’ll receive a detailed plan to guide your continued progress. Depending on the advances you made while in our PHP, as well as your continuing needs, this plan may include a referral to step-down programming, information about community-based resources, and connections with other forms of support.
