Partial Hospitalization Program
Once a person enters an addiction treatment program, they will quickly learn that recovery is not a sprint. Rather, it is a journey full of highs and lows. As such, once they have completed a residential treatment program or a detox center, they may not feel that they're ready to return to their day-to-day lives without support.
If this is the case, other treatment options are available to help patients maintain their sobriety. A partial hospitalization program offers full-day treatment options within a structured environment. Once the client has completed their day's treatment, they can return home. Through this program, they can continue to develop their coping skills and put them to the test in the real world.

What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program?
A partial hospitalization program, also known as a PHP, is an alternative to residential treatment for those whose addiction is not as severe. It can also serve as a step-down treatment program for those who have completed inpatient treatment but want additional support as they return to their daily activities. A PHP can offer patients a wide array of benefits, including:
Higher Levels of Support
When a person returns home after attending a drug and alcohol treatment program, they inevitably face more challenges to their sobriety than they did in the shelter of an inpatient program. When they face temptation or stress, they may feel overwhelmed and, without support, quickly turn back to drugs or alcohol. During these volatile early days of recovery, many patients benefit from the more structured routine of a PHP as they get used to living without drugs and alcohol. They're also able to talk to other people in similar situations and develop strategies to combat stress or triggers.
Personalized Treatment Plans
Addiction is not a one-size-fits-all condition. Each person faces unique challenges, many of which require unique solutions. Through a partial hospitalization program, treatment experts create a plan that addresses the patient's needs.
Treatment may include therapies such as:
- Individual therapy
- Family therapy
- Group therapy
- Acceptance and commitment therapy
- Experiential therapy
Through these therapeutic services, patients will come to understand the factors that led to their substance use and learn how to overcome them.
Stay Connected with Family and Friends
Addiction doesn't only affect the person using drugs and alcohol. In fact, it touches both the individual's friends and family members. People who use substances may feel that others have hurt them, or they may have hurt those around them during their addiction.
A person's family can be a helpful factor in their recovery. Family members can be allies if they understand what the individual is facing. Similarly, most friends will want what is best for the person in recovery. During partial hospitalization treatment, friends and family members get an up-close look at the recovery process. They'll learn more about the strategies the person in recovery tries to implement.
In addition, family members can get more involved with treatment through recovery options, such as a family program. Through family counseling, loved ones can learn how to identify behaviors and habits that the person has developed while amid addiction. They can work through underlying issues that may have contributed to the addiction's development and receive support as they begin healing.
