The Next Step

The Next Step at Bethany Behavioral Health is a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP} that focuses on helping our adult patients work toward and maintain their mental wellness. Our therapeutic model provides the foundation for transformational change in the form of a step down program for patients who have completed our inpatient program but may require additional support as they transition back into their home environment. Individuals may also participate in The Next Step as result of failure to progress in a traditional outpatient setting or as a means of intervening and preventing an escalating mental health crisis.

Individuals in The Next Step program return to their home each day after programming is completed. This intensive level of care is offered from 9 am to 2 pm, Monday through Friday. The average duration of the program varies depending upon each individual’s unique needs and is ultimately determined by the patient’s treatment team of therapists, nurses, and psychiatrists.

The Next Step emphasizes emotional regulation, relational dynamics, and building resiliency in adults who are struggling with their mental health. As a participant in our program, patients will have access to the following groups:

  • Understanding emotions
  • Anxiety & stress reduction
  • Mindfulness
  • Relational improvement
  • Coping strategies
  • Grief and loss
  • Conflict resolution
  • Life transitions
