The Integrated Therapies Treatment Approach, A Referral Guide for Clinicians

The Integrated Therapies Program provides intensive treatment in a partial hospital setting for patients with acute psychiatric and/or substance related problems.

Through a multidisciplinary team approach to patient care, the program’s psychiatrists and clinical specialists provide individual, group and family therapy; medication management; and aftercare planning tailored to the needs of each patient.

Staffed to deliver individualized care and conduct smaller, more intimate therapy groups, the average clinician to patient ratio is 1:5. With respect and compassion, the treatment team empowers patients to maximize their potential.

The Integrated Therapies Program takes place in Butler Hospital’s partial hospital setting. Partial hospital programs have proven to be successful in helping patients manage acute psychiatric disorders and/or substance related problems.

Offered five days a week, patients attend for six hours each day and return home in the evenings to practice the interpersonal and coping skills learned in the program. The length of stay varies according to patient needs; however, the recommended length of stay is five to seven days.

The program integrates evidenced-based therapies and educational groups to meet the individual needs of patients.


  • Individual insight-oriented and supportive psychotherapy.
  • Family and couples therapy.
  • Existential therapy.
  • Interpersonal group psychotherapy.
  • Expressive therapy.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy.
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy.
