Due to the COVID19 outbreak, we are currently not offering day PHP services in person and virtually. We will resume our day PHP programming services when it is safe to do so.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

At the McLean OCD Institute //Houston, we offer a highly specialized Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for adults with moderate to severe anxiety disorders, OCD and related disorders. This program meets Monday through Friday from 8:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 3pm. (This service is currently only available to clients enrolled in PHP with residential support and online as applicable. We will resume our day PHP programming once it is safe to do so.)

Clients enrolled in the PHP have the opportunity to interact with clients who are enrolled in our PHP with residential support program and other individuals who experience similar challenges; this built-in community is therapeutic and creates a motivating atmosphere for people in all stages of treatment.

Clients in our Partial Hospitalization Program work individually with a cognitive-behavior therapist for individual therapy and individualized behavior planning. Clients meet with their behavioral therapist 3 times per week, family therapist once per week and sessions from our team psychiatrist are offered. Groups include a variety of psycho-educational and active ERP groups led by our clinicians, and ERP blocks led by our residential counselors.

Treatment in the Partial Hospitalization Program is provided by our multi-disciplinary team comprised of behavioral therapists, our psychiatrist, our family therapist and our residential counselors. Residential counselors aid in treatment by following behavior plans (developed together with your individual behavioral therapist) to enhance outcomes for clients with anxiety, OCD and related disorders. Our staff is trained to balance compassionate care while implementing response prevention.

Individuals who may benefit from our Online Partial Hospitalization Program include:
  • Individuals with moderate to severe anxiety disorders, OCD or related disorders;
  • Individuals who have not made sufficient progress in traditional outpatient therapy;
  • Individuals who want to make more significant progress in a shorter period of time; and/or
