Adult Programs

Our Partial Hospitalization Program offers an intense level of structured therapy for adults while avoiding the cost of inpatient care. This program offers an appropriate transition from inpatient to outpatient care. It is also suitable for patients currently receiving outpatient therapy, but who need more intensive therapy for a limited time. The partial program meets Monday through Friday, from 9am to 3pm, and patients are separated into psychiatric and dual diagnosis groups.


The Psychiatric Program treats a variety of disorders, including:

  • Anxiety Disorders such as anxiety, panic, and obsessive-compulsive disorders
  • Mood Disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder
  • ADHD

The Dual Diagnosis Program treats:

  • Co-occuring psychiatric and substance abuse disorders
  • Substance abuse disorders that are addressed include:
    • Alcohol abuse
    • Pain medication abuse
    • Prescription drug abuse
    • Abuse of recreational drugs including cocaine, marijuana, crystal meth, etc.

Additional program tracks are available for patients in both programs who have the following issues:

  • The Eating Disorder Track includes treatment for these issues:
    • Anorexia nervosa
    • Bulimia
    • Overeating

This track is 12 step based, and includes a weekly group lunch, didactic and process groups, body image work, and creation of individual food plans. Weekly support from a dietician is available for patients on this track.

  • The Sexual Wholeness Track includes treatment for these issues:
    • Resolution of sexual trauma and abuse
    • Sexual addiction
    • Sexual dysfunction

The sexual wholeness group focuses on sexual trauma, sexual compulsivity, and relationship and love addiction. Participants learn how trauma relates to maladaptive behaviors, anxiety and depression. This group focuses on healing through the development of healthy coping skills to manage triggers, depression, anxiety, and self harm behaviors.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Our Intensive Outpatient Program operates in the evening and is designed to treat adults whose primary issue is substance abuse. The program hours enable patients to continue their work obligations during the day, while receiving intensive treatment three evenings per week. Group and individual therapy, and family involvement are utilized in the program, which meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6pm to 9pm. The 12 steps constitute an important part of this therapy, and the post treatment recovery process.

Outpatient Detox Program

Our Outpatient Detox Program is a 5 to 7 day program that offers a safe and cost effective alternative to inpatient treatment for the medical management of withdrawal symptoms from alcohol and/or other mood-altering substances, such as opiates, benzodiazepines, and others. This program meets the needs of persons who need to be detoxed before beginning a treatment program to address their addiction, as well as persons who have been prescribed mood-altering medications for their medical issues and now need to find an alternative solution to their current medication regimen.

Aftercare Program

Our Aftercare Program addresses relapse prevention and is offered to Three Oaks patients who complete the Adult Dual Diagnosis Program or the Intensive Outpatient Program. Patients are encouraged to attend Aftercare for one year after discharge. The program meets Tuesdays from 6pm to 7pm.
