Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Our Partial Hospitalization Program, or PHP, is an intermediary step between intensive residential treatment or inpatient hospitalization and outpatient care. Partial hospitalization can give you more freedom and self-direction than a full-time residential treatment facility, with more supervision and medical monitoring than an outpatient program.

The features of a PHP include:
  • A structured, supervised environment with a schedule of recovery activities
  • The ability to continue working or taking care of personal obligations
  • Access to a full range of recovery services while in treatment

A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a structured day program offered by hospitals, addiction treatment centers and private rehab facilities. PHPs are a step down from residential programs. Clients in partial hospitalization normally meet for treatment and therapy sessions during the day and return home at night.

What services are provided?

Partial hospitalization is an intensive level of care and may offer the following services:

  • Comprehensive testing and evaluation
  • Individual therapy
  • Support groups
  • Group therapy sessions
  • Family and marriage counseling
  • Introduction to 12-step principles
  • Medication management
  • Relapse prevention
  • Case management
  • Sober living accommodations

Additional support may be provided for clients preparing for the aftercare phase of recovery, such as vocational counseling, job placement, education assistance, and legal assistance. In a PHP, the emphasis is on helping clients get ready to advance their recovery to the next level by assuming more responsibility and acquiring new coping strategies. With this goal in mind, case managers begin anticipating the client’s discharge needs as soon as he or she enters treatment.

When is a PHP appropriate?

A PHP can be the right solution for those who are stepping down from a residential treatment program. It can also be a starting point if intensive monitoring or highly structured routine of inpatient care is no longer required. In order to qualify for a PHP, you should be medically and psychologically stable enough to maintain a certain level of independence in your private life. Patients with a strong personal support system consisting of family, friends, and professionals tend to have good outcomes from partial hospitalization. Our PHP is also an appropriate approach for patients with co-occurring disorders or substance abuse combined with mental illness.

What comes next?

Patients attending PHP receive treatment from a multidisciplinary team of medical and mental health professionals. Each are dedicated to empowering our PHP patients to move forward to the next stage in the recovery process by supporting them through each step of their treatment plan.

To make Partial Hospitalization Programs accessible to as wide a demographic as possible, we make our services available at reasonable rates. We accept most major types of insurance, including policies with limited benefits that cover only PHPs or outpatient treatment.
