Birches Treatment Center

Birch Trees on Brattleboro Retreat campus

Providing Both Partial Hospital (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Day Programs


Both options are comprehensive treatment programs for adults that provide mental health and addiction treatment by day and allow you to return to your home (or stay in our on-campus housing) at night.

The time you spend participating at the Birches Treatment Center includes a full schedule of individual and group counseling, medication management, and appointments with various members of your treatment team. Generally speaking:

  • PHP is an all day program.
  • IOP is a half day program.


At The Birches, you'll find structured programming with a high level of flexibility along with opportunities for individual treatment. We will work with you to establish a schedule that meets your personal needs.

Is The Birches Treatment Center Right for Me?

Maybe you've just completed inpatient hospital care for a mental health or addiction problem but you still need intensive services and support to keep your recovery heading in the right direction. Maybe you're addressing a psychiatric or substance abuse issue and you need more help than is available in traditional outpatient therapy. The Birches Treatment Center offers comprehensive treatment programs that may be right for someone just like you.

Treatment and Philosophy
