The challenge of mental illness has a profound impact on many people in our community.
To strengthen our continuum of services for individuals who need help, Aurora St. Luke’s South Shore offers a partial hospitalization program for adult patients who are experiencing a wide range of psychiatric problems and acute behavioral health illnesses.
With partial hospitalization, patients continue to reside at home, and receive intensive therapy five days a week while maintaining their independence outside of treatment.
The program can serve up to 10 patients at one time and helps them develop better coping mechanisms, improve management of symptoms and learn healthy living skills.
“This excellent program was the catalyst to get better and work on my treatment plan. The therapists were very sincere and professional and everyone treated me with respect. It was the best treatment I’ve experienced in my 26 years of going to therapy.” – Scott, patient of Aurora St. Luke’s South Shore
It is important that these specific services are provided close to home for people like Scott. This approach provides the hope, healing, empowerment and connection that makes recovery possible.
