Healing from a substance use disorder does not conclude with detox. To set the stage for lasting change, clients must be appropriately supported throughout their transition back to regular life. At Gulf Breeze Recovery, we are committed to creating individualized recovery plans that allow for the best chance of long-term success. Contact our team at 833.551.2304 to learn more about how a partial hospitalization program can support your lasting sobriety.
What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?
Partial hospitalization programs are various drug or alcohol treatment programs where clients participate in full-time care and return to their homes to rest and recover on evenings and weekends. This will generally occur after medical detox after a client has begun to re-learn how to function normally without the aid of drugs or alcohol. These plans allow many clients to enjoy the benefits of both high-quality, comprehensive treatment protocols while being surrounded by friends and loved ones.
These programs are often quite immersive, often meeting for a half to a full day, five days a week, lasting several weeks to several months. Because of the scheduling, clients will have access to the full range of behavior, cognitive, emotional, physical, and medical therapies and any case management their aftercare plan requires to be successful. They also enjoy easy access to all facilities and professional offices required to receive high-level support.
PHP vs. Residential Treatment Programs
There are numerous benefits to partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), including:
- Providing comprehensive care for a lower cost (due to the absence of expensive overnight stays) so are more likely to be covered by insurance providers
- The ability to obtain more intensive treatment than most traditional outpatient programs
- Allowing clients to enjoy the healing benefits of their home environment while learning to modify their behaviors
- Permitting families an opportunity to adapt to the client’s needs in a gradual, scaffolded manner
Partial hospitalization programs also permit customizable scheduling, accounting for a client’s specific needs, history of substance use, and extenuating resources. As the client becomes increasingly independent, they may slowly reduce the number of hours per day dedicated to treatment.
Benefits of a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) vs. Residential Treatment
Partial hospitalization programs can be highly effective for patients still undergoing treatment to transition back to independent living. This can be particularly useful for individuals with any of the following needs:
- Clients in the midst of acquiring more healthful habits, such as improved physical fitness and nutrition
- Clients continuing to struggle with emotional or behavioral management
- Clients recovering from multiple forms of substance abuse
- Clients with a history of self-harming behavior or suicidal ideation
- Clients with co-occurring disorders such as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Bipolar Disorder, Depression, or Anxiety
- Clients facing overwhelming transitions in their personal life such as divorce, recovering from domestic abuse, legal concerns, or other stressors
- Clients who require support in transitioning back to their job or who are looking to change their vocation upon leaving treatment
Partial hospitalization programs permit clients to enjoy all of these benefits within a safe, stable setting, allowing the healing process to receive their undivided focus.
