Day Trauma Treatment Program

The Day Treatment Program (Partial Hospitalization Program) treats trauma-related disorders in a day treatment setting and works in conjunction with the Inpatient Program. The day treatment and inpatient programs are located on the same campus, which allows for a seamless transition from one level of care to another.

The Day Program provides the structure, intensity, and supervision patients need while living independently. We provide programming five days per week; stable patients are encouraged to use their weekends for rest and to practice the skills they have learned during the week.

The Treatment Team

Clinical experience is a vital component in providing safe and effective treatment. The Trauma Program utilizes non-regressive approaches to treatment which help patients remain functional while working actively in therapy. The multidisciplinary treatment team is composed of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and licensed professional counselors.

Admission Criteria

  • Patient is diagnosed with a trauma-related disorder.
  • Patient exhibits impaired functioning in day to day social, vocational, and educational activities.
  • Patient is unable to function or make sufficient clinical gains in an outpatient setting.
  • Patient requires daily monitoring, support, and on-going therapeutic intervention.
  • A thorough pre-admission assessment assists clinical staff in determining the level of care most appropriate for each patient. To qualify for the Ross Institute Day Program the patient must demonstrate a willingness and ability to function in an environment less restrictive than inpatient care.

Program Components

All components of the Day Treatment Program have been carefully selected and adapted for the trauma patient.


The hospital cannot provide accommodation for patients while they attend the program. Patients must make these arrangements themselves.
