About Us

Psycamore Psychiatric Programs is a licensed, private, freestanding partial hospitalization program for highly functional adults and adolescents suffering from serious mental disorders and psychosocial impairments. Dr. Sudhakar Madakasira, a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and a Board Certified Psychiatrist founded the Psycamore’s Adult Program in November 2001, in order to serve adults who don’t want or need psychiatric hospitalization.

In 2004 the Adolescent Program was added and in September 2005, Psycamore moved into its expanded and current location in Flowood, MS.

An Employee Assistance Program was added in 2008, and in December 2008, a new location was opened in Southaven, MS.

A Parenting Program and a Child Program were started in 2011 in the Flowood location and an MS Gulf Coast location was opened in February of 2012 in Biloxi, MS.

Hundreds of adults and adolescents have been admitted into different psychiatric programs since Psycamore’s inception. Adults have consisted of lawyers, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, executives, as well as individuals in governmental, business, and manufacturing fields. Adolescents come from both public and private high schools.

Partial Defined

A Partial Hospital Program (PHP) is defined as “a time-limited, ambulatory, active treatment program that offers therapeutic all intensive, coordinated, and structured clinical services within a stable therapeutic milieu.”

It is an alternative to hospitalization and combines the best facets of inpatient care (structure and intense care) with the best of outpatient care (scheduling flexibility and lower costs). It requires services to be provided at a minimum of 20 hours per week while Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) requires a minimum of 12 per week.

Treatments may be arranged for the day, evening, or night, within the framework of the recommended minimum of hours per week, allowing patients the mobility and freedom to maintain home and social life and daily routines, while also maintaining work or school schedules. Best and longer-lasting results are achieved with a treatment duration of at least six to eight weeks.
