Partial Hospitalization Program- The Keys

The Keys Program at Central Florida Behavioral Hospital is an outpatient level of care that offers access to a safe, structured environment that enables the patient to return home at night and maintain important family relationships. The program is provided five days a week and is designed for patients who require coordinated, intensive, comprehensive, and interdisciplinary treatment. The patient that is most appropriate for this level of care may have impairment in psychosocial functioning, a psychiatric condition that has deteriorated or a co-occurring substance abuse disorder. Partial hospitalization may be the right next step for you in the transition from inpatient to outpatient treatment and in some cases may be the treatment of choice in lieu of inpatient care. Central Florida Behavioral Hospital offers specialized programming based on the patients treatment needs. The Keys Program utilizes the following treatment approaches:

Treatment Approach

The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Model (ACT) is an approved evidence based practice that has been proven effective for the treatment of depression, anxiety and stress. ACT is an approved evidence based practice that has been proven effective for the treatment of depression, anxiety, stress, addictions, eating disorders, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, and a myriad of other psychological issues. The ACT model is an approach that helps patients gain a level of acceptance in their lives and take guided actions toward their future. This model focuses on awareness and openness so the patient can engage fully in the present moment. Partial Hospitalization utilizes psychotherapy and psycho educational group therapy. Psycho educational group therapy provides skill based knowledge for the patients to create change in his/her life by understanding the psychiatric  diagnosis, life stressors, and learning triggers and coping mechanisms for a successful, health lifestyle.

The Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT) model is an evidence-based practice that improves the quality of life for people with co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders by addressing both disorders at the same time. This model uses a stages-of-change approach to treatment, which is individualized to address the unique circumstances of each person’s life. IDDT promotes patient and family education, medication management/education, case management, outreach, and support for family members and loved ones. The goal is for patients to return to a desired level of functioning with the skills and knowledge to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The Illness Management and Recovery Model (IMR) is designed to treat individuals with a primary diagnosis of mood disorders and thought disorders. IMR is an evidence based treatment approach that provides information, support, and skills to help patients manage their mental illness and move forward in their own recovery process. It empowers people which allow them to take a more active role in their recovery. The IMR approach involves a number of elements. Patients in this program will receive the following services: goal planning, recovery strategies, mental illness education, coping skills, support to build social networks, and relapse prevention.
