A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a structured addiction treatment plan that offers therapy, support groups, and other programs throughout the day. Still, it allows the patients to return home at night. Addiction treatment centers may provide transportation, meals, and other services. However, the focus is on providing a full program that keeps you focused on recovery up to five days a week.
PHP is ideal if you have the means to manage your addiction while having a stable, supportive environment at home. If you cannot manage your addiction at all, or there is too much conflict at home, you may want to consider a residential addiction treatment program instead. Partial hospitalization is effective in helping you achieve a lasting recovery without relapse.
What Does Partial Hospitalization Involve?
When it comes to recovery programs, every addiction treatment center is unique. Most treatment centers offer comprehensive PHPs that guide you through every stage of recovery. Within these PHPs, clients will find an array of therapeutic services to take part in to meet their unique needs.
Addiction treatment programs typically begin with some form of detox. You may have to undergo detox at a center before you begin partial hospitalization at home. Detox centers offer core services such as:
- Fully licensed medical staff
- Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
- Emergency medical care for severe withdrawal symptoms
- 24/7 monitoring and support
- Comfortable and safe facilities
Detox is essential in your recovery. Without going through professional detox, you are likely to relapse.
Many of the same programs available in residential treatment are also available in a partial hospitalization program. You have access to both evidence-based and holistic treatment and therapy in individual and group settings. Common types of therapy include:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Dialectical behavior therapy
- Experiential therapy
- Trauma therapy
Holistic therapy may also be available. You may have access to yoga, meditation, nutrition therapy, fitness, art or music therapy, or massage therapy.
Once you complete your rehab, you may need continued support to keep you on track. Addiction aftercare programs offer a full support network as a form of relapse prevention. Programs available in a PHP may include:
Since you will spend most of your time at home or the treatment center, aftercare programs help you transition back into normal life if you decide to go back to work or school.
Are You a Candidate for a Partial Hospitalization Program?
Every addiction story is unique. It is important to receive specialized care to meet your specific needs and help you achieve your recovery goals. Fortunately, different levels of treatment exist that correlate with your level of addiction. Residential addiction treatment may be necessary if you are unable to manage your addiction and need round-the-clock supervision. This level of treatment allows you to focus on your addiction without distraction.
Partial hospitalization gives you the same treatment level as residential but does not require you to stay on-site. The opportunity to stay at home may be feasible if you have a supportive family that can keep you accountable on your journey. An outpatient treatment program gives you the most flexibility and freedom. You may choose outpatient care if you can manage your addiction but need counseling throughout the week. You can still commit to your daily responsibilities like work, school, or family.
