For those with addiction and a mental health disorder, choosing a partial hospitalization program (PHP) may be the best type and level of care available. It is not possible to make this decision without a full assessment to look at all factors. At Harmony Hills, this is one of the addiction treatment program options we offer, along with our intensive outpatient program and residential treatment program. If you need help for any reason, our team is here.
What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program?
A partial hospitalization program is a structured treatment program. What makes it different from an intensive outpatient program can be its focus on mental health issues and its overall duration. It is sometimes used as a type of addiction treatment program. PHP is done as a day program. That means a person comes in for care during the day for several hours at a time and then leaves to go home at night. The number of hours and the number of days per week this program is used differs, but it tends to be an intense program with numerous sessions each week.
You may benefit from a partial hospitalization program if:
- You have a stable, drug-free environment to call home.
- Functioning well at school, home, or work has become challenging.
- Your health is stable, but you recognize your need for help.
- There’s support at home to keep you on track.
- You want to change
Many people who have co-occurring disorders – both drug or alcohol addiction and mental health disorders – benefit from this type of therapy because it allows them to go home to a supportive family. It is designed to provide comprehensive support through various therapies, including both individual and group therapy.
What Happens in PHP?
This type of program involves a range of treatment and education. A person learns about their mental health disorder and how to manage its symptoms. There is a lot of skill-building during therapy sessions to help prepare a person to handle stress and life challenges in a healthy manner. Most often, medication is a component of this therapy too. It provides stability and clarity.
What Type of Addiction Treatment Program Is the Right Choice?
Harmony Hills recognizes the need for a range of therapy options, including a partial hospitalization program. However, other options exist, as well. Some people benefit from an intensive outpatient program. It follows the same type of intense care schedule but has less focus on mental health disorders and more focus on addiction therapy.
For some, a residential treatment program is essential. It provides a person with care 24-hours a day. While you may not go home in this type of program right away, a residential treatment program provides the highest level of care and support in most cases.
You do not have to determine which addiction treatment program is right for you. Our team will provide a full consultation to discuss your options after learning about any mental health disorders you may have.
From there, our treatment program begins to work with you to achieve your goals. This is done through comprehensive therapy sessions. Some of the care we offer includes:
