What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program?
A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is recommended for those who need to address both mental illness and substance abuse in a single treatment program. A PHP is generally a more structured treatment plan than a traditional outpatient program. It takes place for several hours a day three to five days per week, and it addresses addiction triggers while helping with behavioral health and mental health issues surrounding addiction.
The term for this level of outpatient treatment can be misleading.
First, PHP doesn’t have to take place in a hospital; we offer it at our facility.
Secondly, you aren’t admitted into the facility for any overnight stays.
Instead, you travel to the program on a daily basis — depending on the provider, this may be on weekdays only or seven days a week — for outpatient treatment that can include individual and group therapy, education regarding the addiction cycle and how to manage your addiction and recreational therapy to build confidence and healthier coping skills.
Greenbranch Recovery’s New Jersey PHP Rehab Program
This form of drug rehab at our treatment facility in New Jersey involves five days of drug abuse treatment each week for up to about six hours each day. You’ll attend sessions in our state-of-the-art facility, which is designed with comfort and recovery in mind. Individualized treatment planning lets you be involved in making goals and decisions about your time in day treatment, and small support group sessions ensure you get focused attention from the caring, experienced counselors and staff.
A typical day in a PHP consists of individual and group therapy, education, skill building activities and frequent mental health and recovery evaluations that must be performed by a licensed mental health professional in a mental health facility. The exact length of time in a PHP varies depending on the person, but the goal is to ensure the client has reached treatment goals.
The Benefits of PHP as an Addiction Treatment Plan
Partial hospitalization can be an ideal solution for individuals in various stages of recovery from drug addiction. Often, it comes as the step after residential rehab. You move from living at the rehab facility, where 24-hour supervision and care is available, to outpatient status. That means you return home or move into a new home, and you may begin to integrate back into daily activities such as work, school or family life.
This transition can be a challenge for many. All of a sudden, you’re not protected by the safety and security of the residential rehab environment. Instead, you have to start employing the strategies you learned and practiced in intensive treatment, dealing with day-to-day life again. PHP treatment helps reduce the impact of this transition, providing you with continued structured treatment options and professional support as you learn to navigate life clean and sober and meet unexpected obstacles with your new coping skills.
But partial hospitalization isn’t just helpful for those making a transition from inpatient care programs. In some cases, residential recovery may not be necessary or optimal given your own current life obligations. In these cases, you may work with professionals to make PHP your first step in rehab — especially if you’re not in need of 24-hour detox services.
