Glade Run’s Acute Partial Hospitalization program is a short-term, intensive therapeutic day program designed to stabilize children experiencing significant psychiatric challenges with the goal of deterring inpatient hospitalization. Acute Partial Hospitalization is appropriate for children ages 12 to 18 (to 21 with special conditions. Exceptions may be made for youth ages 10 to 11.) who do not require inpatient treatment, but are in need of more intensive treatment than outpatient services can provide. This short-term intensive level of care allows children to benefit from consistent, structured treatment while maintaining their education and usual living arrangements with their families.

Glade Run is pleased to offer acute partial hospitalization programming on our historic Zelienople campus.

The program day in the Glade Run Acute Partial Hospitalization Program will begin in the classroom where clients will receive three hours (8:00AM-11:00AM) of instructional and therapeutic support.

Following instructional time, clients will have lunch and review progress, goals, expectations, and contract for safety with their Primary Clinician and Primary Group.

The afternoon portion of the acute partial will consist of three therapeutic skill groups (including; Recreation, Process, Creative Expression, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), medication checks/evaluations with the psychiatrist, and family and/or individual therapy meetings.

The program day will conclude at 3:00PM.

During treatment at the Glade Run Acute Partial Hospitalization Program, the child’s assigned teacher will coordinate with the child’s home district to gather information about the child’s needs and Individualized Education Plan, inform the home district of the child’s progress in treatment, and develop a plan for transitioning the child back to the home school district prior to being discharged from the Acute Partial Program.

Given the intensity of treatment found in Acute Partial Hospitalization, children and adolescents may only be referred to the Glade Run Acute Partial Hospitalization Program by existing treatment providers including Residential Treatment Facilities, Psychiatric Inpatient Units, Psychiatric Emergency Rooms, Outpatient Providers, Family Based and IBHS providers.
