Residential. Day Treatment. Inpatient. Outpatient. Partial. Acute Care. And the list of treatment program types goes on. The decision to enter a more intensive treatment program is a big decision for individuals and families. But what type of treatment is right for you? What is the difference between day treatment and partial? We attempt to explain the difference.

Inpatient - Short term (3-7 days) intensive treatment in a 24-hour care in a safe and secure unit of the hospital. The focus is to stabilize symptoms and plan continued treatment of the illness. The restrictive setting helps individuals break the ‘cycle’ of their illness.

Residential - Long-term care, typically 30-90 days in a home-like setting. Patients must be medically stable, however their behaviors have become habitual or addictive they benefit from 24-hour supervision and treatment. Rogers’ four residential centers are at our Oconomowoc location.

Partial - For all age ranges, think of it as spending a ‘part’ of your day at Rogers. Programming is offered 5 days per week, for 6 hours each day for a range of psychiatric symptoms and diagnosis, including eating disorders, dual diagnosis, depression and anxiety.

Day Treatment - Morning or afternoon ‘day’ sessions are offered for children and adolescents, ages 4 to 18. Includes 12 hours per week of programming, split into four 3 hour sessions. Provided in a safe and secure setting that allows patient to remain enrolled in their school for part of the day. Learn more at http://rogerscadt.org/(link is external).

Intensive Outpatient - Same as day treatment.

Outpatient - Typically the first or last aspect of treatment. An individual sees a treatment provider for one to three hours per week for ongoing support. Rogers works closely with these providers to maximize gains made during your stay.

If you are still confused as to the type of treatment that may work for you, call us! Our online screening is available 24/7 a week. In addition, Rogers’ outreach professionals can assist you in programming to fit your needs.
