Expert Care that Combines Home and Hospital
Butler Hospital's Partial Hospital programs have proven to be effective treatment options for patients whose psychiatric symptoms or level of functioning require more intensive treatment than outpatient care can provide but who do not need inpatient hospitalization.

Partial Hospital Programs
The Partial Hospital programs provides treatment to men and women ranging in age from young adults to seniors. With four unique programs, treatment is tailored to each patient’s specific needs and is provided in a confidential, supportive, and structured environment.

Partial Hospital programs combine comprehensive treatment to patients in conjunction with their lives at home and in the community. From Monday through Friday during the day, patients attend the program that is best suited to their needs. In the evening and on weekends, patients return home to practice the skills they learned during the day. This helps patients take what they learn in treatment and put it into practice in their day-to-day lives.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy Program
The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Program provides comprehensive care to men and women who have been affected by serious emotional problems, work-related issues, relationship problems, and psychiatric disorders including depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder.

Women's Program
The first of its kind in the region, the Women’s Dialectical Behavior Therapy Program at Butler is dedicated to treating women who feel hopeless, overwhelmed, depressed, and suicidal. Using Dialectical Behavior Therapy, the program also assists women who are self-injurious, painfully lonely, feel “out-of-control,” or have relationship problems.

Alcohol and Drug Program
Many people who abuse drugs or alcohol have an underlying behavioral problem such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, or post traumatic stress disorder. Expert clinical staff provides care for patients with dual diagnosis that is second to none.
