Spotlight on Success

Partial Hospitalization Program

Emergence Health Network (EHN) offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) at our Alternatives at EHN location in northeast El Paso.  PHP provides an individual with the care of a residential treatment program but allows the clients to spend evenings at home. This is beneficial for people who are dealing with problems too severe to be managed in outpatient therapy alone.  Justyne Gandara believes the PHP helped her on the road to recovery, “Before my mind felt like a mess and out of control.  Now I can understand how I feel and what is going on. Now I have a lot of coping skills, the ability to identify bad habits and I am more positive about who I am and my future.”

The PHP involves a longer treatment visit (usually several hours) than what is typically offered in a doctor’s or therapist’s office. The controlled environment is often a useful step-down transition from acute inpatient care or as an alternative to inpatient treatment. PHP is available at Alternatives for Dual Diagnosis for individuals dealing with chemical dependency and/or mental health issues.  “This place is a safe environment to get help.  The staff isn’t just here to get paid, I can really feel the sincerity from them to help,” added Gandara. “People with these issues are just as capable of living a happy life and just need the tools to gain control of their emotions and their happiness.”

IDD START Services

Emergence Health Network launched the START (Systemic, Therapeutic, Assessment, Resources, and Treatment) program in El Paso in February 2014.  Since then the START TEAM has helped divert dozens of EHN clients with an intellectual/developmental disability (IDD) from a psychiatric hospital and provided more appropriate treatment to assist them in living stable, productive, lives.

Aaron Leyva is one of them.  His mom says now he is getting the treatment he needs. “This program and the staff at EHN opened doors for us that we could not open for ourselves because he also needed mental health assistance.” Now Aaron is more independent and productive.  Mom says life is better for him and her. “He is a better person, now he goes to school. As his mom, before this service, my life revolved around him and now I can better take care of myself and him and do things I was never able to do like go to a wedding, Wal-Mart, etc.  Now I am learning how to have a life. There is help don’t think your world is closed off. “
