Partial hospitalization programs, or PHPs, are becoming more and more popular in addiction recovery. This particular addiction treatment program provides intensive care for behavioral issues and is quite effective in helping those with addictions. A partial hospitalization program at Midwest Recovery Center allows individuals to get the therapy they need to address their substance use disorder while still meeting their personal and professional commitments.
What Partial Hospitalization Programs Are
Also known as day programs, a partial hospitalization program gives behavioral treatment without an overnight stay. They offer more treatment time than a regular outpatient program and have been found effective in mental illness and substance abuse treatment. Those in PHPs are monitored and participate in various evidence-based therapies, giving them comprehensive care with the freedom of having outside lives. They are much more flexible than inpatient treatment options and give longer treatment plans than outpatient options, providing a cost-effective way to get comprehensive treatment while avoiding inpatient hospitalization.
Differences between PHP, Inpatient Treatment, and Outpatient Programs
Inpatient programs require the patient to live on-site at a residential facility during their rehabilitation and treatment. They offer 24/7 care and support where most of the client’s day is spent in treatment.
Outpatient programs require fewer hours a week in treatment, more variable time frames, and less one-on-one support and care. These treatment plans are variable but typically are less time than what is given in a partial hospitalization program.
Partial hospitalization programs offer in-depth treatment while letting clients live at home in the comfort of familiarity. Their treatment plans are longer than outpatient in both daily hours and frequency of sessions per week. They can last from several weeks of sessions to a few months of treatment depending on the severity of the mental illness or addiction and co-existing conditions with the addiction. Talking with a provider can better understand how long to expect a PHP to last.
What Treatments To Expect
There are a wide variety of treatment methods that partial hospitalization programs use in their facilities. Some of these include behavioral therapies like cognitive-behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy. Other offerings include individual counseling, group therapy and support group meetings, fitness therapy, art therapy, and nutritional programs for whole-body wellness. Co-ordinating treatment plans with both evidence-based science and creative outlets can help patients get more all-over care, providing them with outlets and methods to structure their days healthily without drugs or alcohol. Learning how to express their feelings and vent without turning to harmful outlets is a great way to encourage long-lasting care results.
Who Can Benefit From a PHP?
A middle ground between inpatient programs and outpatient programs, partial hospitalization programs are a great way to get more intensive therapy than an outpatient treatment or to transition back to life from inpatient treatment.
Those looking to avoid hospitalization or inpatient drug rehab may opt for a PHP. This treatment option allows for you to live at home and is more flexible than inpatient programs, allowing more freedom while still getting very good results for your condition. Those who don’t want residential therapy in a live-in facility can enroll in a PHP and better time commitment and a lowered cost.
Those with a good support structure and a stable home environment do well with partial hospitalization programs and can find relief from their addiction or mental health struggles.
