The IPS programs include an 18-bed secure general inpatient psychiatric unit and a partial hospitalization program (PHP).  Children and adolescents are admitted to the inpatient unit because of an active risk of harm to themselves or others and/or an inability to meet their basic daily needs because of severe psychiatric impairment.  The average inpatient length of stay is approximately one week.  Patients are admitted to PHP  when they are unable to function successfully in their normal daily environments, but can be safely maintained at home.  Program hours are Monday through Friday 8:30am – 2:30pm.  PHP serves up to 20 patients and the average length of stay for this program is two weeks. 
The IPS programs are staffed by an interdisciplinary team that includes psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed therapists, occupational therapists, psychiatric nurses and mental health counselors.  Both programs utilize individual, family, group and milieu therapy, with an emphasis on cognitive-behavioral and dialectical behavior therapies, behavior modification, parent-management training and other evidenced-based approaches to care.
