Cost and Benefits of Attending a Partial Hospitalization Program
PHPs (partial hospitalization programs) are commonly called day programs.
With this form of addiction treatment, you’ll benefit from intensive treatment suitable for a variety of substance use disorders. PHPs also work well for treating alcohol use disorder.
Partial hospitalization programs give you the support and structure vital for mild to moderate addictions without requiring the commitment to inpatient treatment. As the name makes clear, part of this program is delivered in a treatment center, but clients return home each night after sessions.
Here at The District Recovery Community, we offer flexible PHPs, including the following:
- Behavioral health and therapy services
- Experiential therapy
- Group Therapy Sessions
- Individual counseling
- Family counseling
- Adventure-based programs
We’ll explore the key benefits of a partial hospitalization program so you can see if it makes the right fit for you or a loved one.
Benefits of a Partial Hospitalization Program
If you want accountability along with close medical monitoring, but you don’t want the cost or inflexibility of residential rehab, a PHP can provide the best of both worlds.
Anyone stepping down the continuum of care from inpatient treatment for substance use disorder or alcohol use disorder may find a PHP beneficial.
PHPs are a step up from intensive outpatient programs and a step down from residential rehab.
Many clients find PHPs beneficial, especially those transitioning from inpatient treatment to outpatient treatment for alcohol use disorder or substance use disorder. Partial hospitalization programs perfectly plug the gap between inpatient and outpatient care. They can be especially useful if you have mood disorders or similar co-occurring mental health conditions alongside your addictions.
If this is the first time you’ve experienced detoxing from drug addiction, you should be clear that detox is only the first step on a lifelong journey. Ensuring that you have the right level of care in place throughout your recovery will minimize the chance of relapse. For anyone new to recovery, PHPs can be highly effective, and not as intimidating as the thought of packing up and heading off to residential rehab for a month or more.
Any clients who engage with a PHP at TDRC can then step down the continuum of care to an intensive outpatient program followed by ongoing help from community support groups.
For clients with mild addictions unable to commit to a month-long residential treatment program, a PHP at TDRC could be the most effective pathway to detox and recovery from active addiction. What’s involved in the process, then?
What To Expect from PHP at TDRC
This is the foundation of our partial hospitalization programs at The District Recovery Community:
- Medication-assisted treatment
- CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy)
- DBT (dialectical behavior therapy)
- Vocational development
- Counseling and therapy
When you first engage with treatment at TDRC, our healthcare experts will conduct a thorough examination and analysis of your situation. This allows us to personalize a treatment program to suit your addiction and circumstances.
Expect to field questions about your substance use, past and present. You can also expect a range of tests to determine your health status.
Your symptoms will be assessed on the following scale:
As we mentioned above, PHPs are only really suitable for clients with mild addictions.
While flexible, our PHPs are also structured and rigorous. You’ll engage with licensed therapists and counselors along with medical professionals, so you’ll feel supported throughout all stages of your early recovery.
To start a partial hospitalization program, you’ll need to have detoxed from drink or drugs.
Following detox, you will attend scheduled sessions several times weekly at our treatment center. PHPs last for at least three months. You’ll benefit from individual and group counseling, and you’ll also undertake a range of therapeutic activities.
If your home environment is not conducive or supportive to your recovery, you could stay at one of our sober living homes while you undertake treatment.
Once you complete your PHP at The District Recovery Community, you’ll be equipped with the skills you need to re-engage with society on your own terms and without a chemical crutch.
