Integrated Therapies Program

The Integrated Therapies Program at Butler Hospital provides evidence-based treatment centered on existential and interpersonal therapy. The program is offered in a partial hospital setting and provides a combination of treatment and therapies designed to work best for each individual person.

The Integrated Therapies Program provides specialized care for people struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse and other psychiatric disorders. Patients arrive at the hospital each morning and stay for six hours a day. At the end of the day, they return home to practice the interpersonal and coping skills learned in the program. These programs have proven to be effective treatment options for patients whose symptoms or level of functioning require more intensive treatment than outpatient care can provide but do not need inpatient hospitalization.

Expert care that combines home and hospital. To learn more and to schedule an appointment call (401) 455-6223. After hours 24/7 call 1 (844) 401-0111.
