SunCloud Health provides Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) Monday through Friday from 9am-3:30pm at our Naperville, Chicago, and Northbrook centers. Designed for adolescents requiring full-day support, we provide time for schoolwork and collaborate directly with their schools. Our approach is different from the other programs in the Chicago region. We treat depression, substance use disorder, eating disorders, anxiety, PTSD, school refusal, and other behavioral health conditions. Please contact us for an assessment to see if our program aligns with the needs of your child, patient, or student.
Teen PHP Treatment
Adolescence is a trying time for all teenagers, but for some teenagers it’s more difficult to make it through these years in a healthy way than others. An adolescent partial hospitalization program is geared specifically towards teenagers who need daily support and a structure plan for care.
Teen partial hospitalization can help the 7-8% of teenagers with behavioral problems in the United States (CDC). From substance use issues to diagnoses of mood disorders or generalized anxiety and OCD, a PHP program can help. Our program allows teens to maintain and improve relationships with their family while simultaneously learning healthy coping mechanisms for life.

Hear from Dr. Chevalier on the balance school and extracurricular activities with treatment. In most cases, coursework is unaffected and can be improved while a student is out of school receiving treatment.
A variant adolescent PHP gives teenagers more autonomy by providing a way for them to stay connected with family and friends while undergoing treatment. At the same time, PHP still provides the comprehensive intensive treatment of an inpatient program. Adolescent partial hospitalization (PHP) works by allowing teens to come to the treatment center daily, Monday through Friday, while spending evenings and weekends at home. This dual approach provides teens with the support that they need while still providing them with a more normal social life and family life.
