Silver Spring PHP - Compass Health Center

Silver Spring PHP

Compass Health Center – Silver Spring provides Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) for individuals living with mental health conditions impacting their daily life. PHP dedicates six hours daily to specialized behavioral health care led by a comprehensive treatment team, including a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner, Master’s level clinicians, and specialized therapists. Individuals return home each day after the program. The goal is for individuals to step down to our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

Silver Spring IOP - Compass Health Center

Silver Spring IOP

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a short-term treatment for individuals with mental health symptoms that are impacting their daily life, but who can still maintain work, school, or other priorities. This program can also be used as an initial treatment or preventative measure for those struggling with their mental health but who aren’t acute enough for PHP or residential care.

Our Success Stories

Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

Compass saved my life! I came into Compass with suicidal ideations and no hope. After a couple of weeks of being in the program, I did not have those thoughts anymore. Compass helped me change my mindset, from a negative pattern of thoughts to a more positive and optimistic frame of mind.

Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

My child is leaving Compass more equipped to handle her emotions, her anxiety, her depression, and the things that all trigger these. She is willing to use the skills, which is a huge change, and this is all due to how well Compass worked for her.

Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

Compass is a godsend. An amazing program for children who are struggling and families who are seeking help and guidance. I could not imagine that she would be so much better in less than 2 months. I wish we could have found Compass without going to the ER. Thanks for all you do!
