A partial hospitalization program (often called PHP) provides intensive addiction treatment for people experiencing severe substance use disorders. There are many benefits of partial hospitalization. The biggest is that you will still be living at home, sleeping in your bed, surrounded by those who love you, all while receiving dedicated, professional care for several hours each day. PHP can fit within your busy schedule and equip you with the life skills, coping mechanisms, and resources to live a healthier, independent life with dignity.

What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program?
Despite the presence of the word ‘hospital,’ you will not be spending time in a hospital during PHP. Instead, you will experience expert addiction treatment through therapy, counseling, activities, and personalized compassionate care during the day in a safe, intimate non-hospital facility. PHP is beneficial because it fits perfectly into your existing routine and bust schedule. Each day, you will return to your home to continue living your life as a partner, parent, employee, and student. A partial hospitalization program can help clients with substance use disorders as well mental health issues. PHP is one way to get the addiction treatment you need and deserve if a full-time residential program is not possible because of your many time commitments. However, you still want access to skilled support and personalized treatment plans that will address you as a whole person.
Who Could Benefit from PHP?
A partial hospitalization program can be extremely beneficial for those people who are experiencing the following situations in their life:
- Substance use disorders
- Discharge from an inpatient hospital stay
- Successfully completed a drug detox
How Does Partial Hospitalization Work?
For many of our clients, a partial hospitalization program works because it respects you as a person with responsibilities, needs, commitments, and a full life that is still ongoing while at the same time providing intensive, daily care, therapy, and addiction treatment needed to get better and experience a full recovery.
As with any therapy, PHP may not be the perfect fit for everyone. Because each client has their life situation to manage and a unique set of struggles to overcome, the level of care involved, and the commitment a client needs to benefit from a partial hospitalization program, it may not be the best choice for addiction treatment. However, when a partial hospitalization program works, it is because PHP offers clients many benefits, including the chance to:
Work with Professionals
You will encounter and work with a myriad of caring professionals during PHP. They will work in concert to provide a reliable support network tailored to you and your specific needs.
Have Access to Individual and Group Therapy
You will receive therapy one-on-one and with a group, and when applicable, family therapy and dual diagnosis. Oscillating between various counseling techniques will allow you to hone in on your issues, past trauma, and current emotions while also being held accountable. Additionally, you will be encouraged to take on new ideas and feedback from a group of peers walking a similar path to recovery. In therapy during PHP, you will learn more about your addiction and become equipped with the coping mechanisms you’ll use during a lifetime of sobriety.
Receive Intense Treatment
PHP offers significantly more intensive addiction treatment than traditional outpatient care. In a partial hospitalization program, you will have a better chance to overcome your addiction by spending more time engaging in treatments and therapies while living with dignity at home.
Enjoy Highly Effective Outpatient Care
A partial hospitalization program is not residential care. The timing of the treatments and therapies will work within your busy schedule and are meant to provide you with the independent life you crave, and one spent sleeping in your bed at home, going to school or work, but still doing the hard work needed to overcome your drug or alcohol use disorder.
