Partial Hospitalization Programs


Partial Hospitalization


Today, several different treatment options are available to those struggling with addiction and seeking help to overcome their dependence on drugs and alcohol. Addiction treatment programs range in levels of care from inpatient residential programs to outpatient options with various options in between. When considering treatment and researching your options, it can quickly become challenging to determine which type of program is right for your treatment needs. While inpatient residential care is appropriate and the most beneficial for some, the level of intensity provided in the inpatient setting may not be necessary for everyone. In some cases, a partial hospitalization program or PHP may provide effective addiction treatment in an environment that does not require patients to “live” at the addiction treatment facility during their treatment program.

What Exactly is a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Partial hospitalization programs (sometimes called day programs or PHPs) provide those who are ready to overcome addiction the opportunity to receive intensive therapy without requiring a week’s long overnight stay at a rehab center. Many partial hospitalization programs offer addiction therapy options similar to those provided in an inpatient residential setting. Treatment programs at a PHP are designed based on evidence-based therapy models, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). Both cognitive-behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy encourage you to examine the negative thought patterns that have led to addiction while learning new and healthy ways to regulate behavior and emotion. During a PHP program, you are provided a safe and secure space to address the roots of addiction and learn (and practice) new, healthier coping strategies to manage triggers.

Partial hospitalization programs are similar to inpatient residential programs in that therapy occurs in a variety of settings. Throughout your program, you may participate in individual (one-to-one), group and family therapy sessions. The duration and frequency of therapy will depend on your unique treatment needs. Some programs also provide alternative treatment options, including dance, yoga, and movement therapies.

What Are the Benefits of a Partial Hospitalization Drug Rehab?

Partial hospitalization programs offer an intensive level of treatment similar to the level of care found in a residential treatment environment. However, a PHP allows patients to continue living at home with family and loved ones while they pursue sobriety. In a way, partial hospitalization programs combine the best features of residential and outpatient care. PHP programs are often more demanding than a traditional outpatient program requiring more sessions (more hours of treatment) each week.

Your partial hospitalization treatment program at Impact Wellness will be designed based on your treatment needs and goals. Your treatment team will work with you to learn more about your medical, mental health, and addiction treatment history to determine the best course of treatment to help you get well. Depending on your individualized plan, you may be required to attend an average of five, three-to-five-hour sessions each week.

Partial hospitalization programs can also serve as a step-down or bridge option for someone who has recently completed addiction treatment in an inpatient setting yet does not feel “stable” without continued therapeutic support. Partial hospitalization programs provide a safe and supported way to transition from an inpatient care setting back to your day-to-day routine.

Our Midwest Partial Hospitalization Program

Before entering a Midwest partial hospitalization program, it is essential to complete detox. If you are still under the influence of or dependent on substances, it is challenging, if not impossible, to immerse yourself in addiction therapy. Impact Wellness provides detox options at many of our Midwest rehabs. Once you have completed detox, it is possible to transition directly into a PHP program.

When you arrive at our partial hospitalization program, the first step is generally a comprehensive assessment. During the evaluation, a member of our treatment team will talk with you about your medical and mental health history. They will also want to learn more about your history with substance use and addiction treatment. Your comprehensive assessment is used to help the staff at the treatment center understand your treatment history and gain knowledge about any preexisting medical or emotional conditions that may need to be addressed or monitored during treatment. The information you share during your intake interview will help the members of your treatment team develop a unique treatment plan that outlines goals for you to meet during treatment and defines the best treatment models to help you attain and maintain ongoing sobriety.

Partial hospitalization programs are more intensive than typical outpatient programs. PHP therapy sessions meet on weekdays (Monday-Friday) during the day. Often, these programs are several hours long. Some programs offer evening sessions as well to accommodate the schedules of those with daytime employment or other obligations such as childcare. Most programs utilize individual therapy sessions integrated into a plan of several group meetings. You should also expect drug and alcohol testing to be part of the procedure at a partial hospitalization program. When taking part in an inpatient treatment program, opportunities for relapse are minimized by the residential nature of the program. Because partial hospitalization programs allow you to live at home during treatment, this increases potential exposure to triggers and opportunities for relapse. Therefore, testing is used to help ensure your safety and the safety of other program participants.

Partial hospitalization drug rehab programs use various therapy models in both individual and group settings. The goals of addiction therapy are to help participants address and change maladaptive behaviors and thought patterns that led to addiction and ongoing substance use. Therapy also helps build relapse prevention and recovery skills, improve social functioning, heal damaged family relationships, and improve employment and education outcomes. While participating in individual and group sessions, your treatment team will help you to learn and practice healthy and safe coping strategies as part of your relapse prevention plan.

    If you have decided to seek addiction treatment, remember the journey to recovery is not accomplished in one step. Once you have completed detox and cleanse your body of the effects of drugs or alcohol, ongoing therapeutic treatment is necessary (often for weeks or months) before you can successfully achieve lasting sobriety and recovery. Addiction is a disease that cannot be cured; however, it can be treated, and recovery is possible.

    To fully recover from addiction, it is essential to participate in a comprehensive treatment program that addresses your medical and psychological health as part of a holistic treatment plan. Both your physical and mental health are essential components to health as a whole person and reducing your chances of relapse after completing an addiction treatment program. Many partial hospitalization programs provide access to nutrition and exercise programs in addition to traditional therapy models, group activities, and holistic treatments such as art or music therapy.
