Advice & Tips: I highly recommend a partial hospitalization treatment especially if one hasn't been hospitalized before. It was very helpful in getting me prepared for longer treatment and educating me on how to utilize the treatment there. I learned a lot of different skills I wasn't familiar with, and have been very helpful in my daily life. This program was at McLean Hospital.
Cost: < $25 monthly
