What is Partial Hospitalization (PHP)?
A Partial Hospitalization Program, or PHP, is a strictly structured therapeutic program that takes place during the day. Clients return to a home living space once the full day of treatment is complete – this is what separates PHP from inpatient treatment. PHP clients participate in group therapy, individual therapy and intensive skills building programs, all designed to collectively help facilitate healing and prepare individuals for a return to fully independent living. In the majority of cases PHP programs are held from Monday to Friday for at least six full hours. PHP is an ideal option for those who have recently completed an inpatient treatment program and still require a more intensive level of care than intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) can provide. Partial Hospitalization is also ideal for individuals who have recently gone through the medical detoxification process and are looking for an intensive level of addiction treatment with slightly more personal freedom. This is generally only an option for men and women who have been suffering from a mild to moderate addictive disorder – those struggling with severe addictive disorders will likely need a higher level of care, such as residential treatment. At Immersion Recovery Center our PHP program provides clients with a high level of clinical care and allows them to return to their own homes and live independently on nights and weekends. Of course, support is available around the clock – if a client finds him or herself in a precarious position when PHP is not in session, professional help through Immersion is still be accessible. Our main priority is helping those new to recovery maintain sobriety and eventually transition into independent, functional living.
