PHP/IOP Hours and Schedule

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is open Monday through Friday, and the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is open only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Both programs are closed on hospital holidays.

On your first day in either program, please arrive to the first floor front desk at Langley Porter at least 30 minutes before the start time, as you may be asked to complete a number of registration and assessment forms. On subsequent days, you should arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time to register and pay any co-payment due for that day. Please check in at the first floor front desk every day you attend our program, even if you have no co-payment.

PHP provides lunch each treatment day at 1 p.m.. Please let us know in advance if you have any dietary restrictions or special needs at the time of registration and we will do our best to accommodate you. IOP does not provide lunch.

Starting the day

Please arrive 15-20 minutes early. The purpose of this time is to arrive, connect with others, and prepare oneself for the day. People use this time to arrive without pressure, find a seat, and spend a few minutes greeting their fellow group members, introduce themselves to people they have not met, and reflect to themselves on their purpose in being here. This preparation serves to have you ready to begin groups on time and ready to go. It is also an opportunity to practice arriving on time and being prepared for the day, which is an essential life skill.


Being on time demonstrates a willingness to change and respect for oneself and others, so please arrive on time. Participants should arrive on time to all groups throughout the day. This means that if you elect to get coffee or lunch and are not back to group in time, you are late. Being late to group is one example of behavior that can interfere with your treatment and the treatment of others.

If you manifest treatment interfering behaviors, we will work with you to ensure that treatment is not interfered with or assist you in reevaluating your ability to participate in the program. This is something that we actively monitor. Participants who are late to group more than three times are given notice about possibility of discharge.
