Greater Boston Behavioral Health

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Our PHP program is best suited for those who need more intensive treatment than an outpatient program can offer but do not require 24-hour supervised care. This program typically runs for up to five hours a day, five days per week, and provides therapeutic support in a structured environment

Intensive Outpatient Program

Our IOP program is a comprehensive treatment program ideal for those who require structured support but do not need 24-hour supervised care. Compared to the PHP program, our IOP program consists of fewer hours per week.

LGBTQ+ Program

While our mental health treatment programs can be gender-specific, what’s particularly special is that they’re created with an LGBTQ+ friendly approach. Clients of any gender or orientation can feel safe and secure as they work to overcome and manage their mental health conditions at Greater Boston Behavioral Health.
