Partial Hospitalization Program for Adolescents
Summit is Highlands Behavioral Health System’s partial hospitalization program, often called PHP. This program is for adolescents and serves individuals dealing with mental and emotional disorders. It may be an alternate option when conventional outpatient therapy is not sufficient or for those transitioning out of inpatient care. Summit allows patients to receive structured treatment during the day through several hours of therapy and skill building groups. Treatment includes cognitive-behavioral therapy and development of coping strategies in a supportive recovery environment.
Coping Strategies Taught in Summit
- Lack of focus

Summit meets each Monday through Friday (except holidays) from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Adolescents can enroll anytime following a no-cost, confidential assessment. Lodging is available on a case-by-case basis for patients who need overnight accommodations. Clients must be accompanied by an adult age 21 or older for lodging.
