Am J Psychiatry 1978;135:594-596.

PDF of the full text article.

The authors suggest that day hospitalization can provide a useful therapeutic framework for patients with borderline personality organization without creating the ego regression often seen in such patients during 24-hour hospitalization. The lack of room and board facilities and of contact with patients who need 24-hour hospitalization plus the maintenance of contact with the people in the patient's nonhospital life facilitate treatment in this setting.
