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:
- Residence at our treatment facility
- Continuous medical monitoring by clinical staff for clients living on-site
- A structured, supervised environment with a schedule of recovery activities
- Access to a full range of recovery services while in treatment
PHPs are offered by hospitals, inpatient treatment centers, and private rehab facilities. Clients in partial hospitalization can choose to reside in the community in a private home or halfway house. If sober living accommodations are offered as part of their treatment program, they may also live on site, giving them easier access to therapists, medical personnel, and recovery resources. At Orlando Recovery Center, all patients live on-site to continue treatment during partial hospitalization.
What Services Are Provided?
Many of the services that a client would receive in full-time residential treatment are available through partial hospitalization. These services may include:
- 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 during treatment. 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 our PHP continue to reside in on-site living quarters. We 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.
