Sanford Outpatient Center for Addiction
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Partial Hospitalization, is one level of care higher than the Intensive Outpatient Program for addiction. The purpose of PHP is to provide therapy, structure, and accountability during the day, while allowing patients to practice their learned skills in their home, Sanford Supportive Housing, or in a sober living environment after daily programming concludes.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
IOP allows for continuation of everyday activities while integrating effective strategies to manage recovery. IOP is available to adults who live within reasonable driving distance from Sanford or those in a sober living environment who may have completed a residential program and need additional support. Clients are expected to maintain a sober lifestyle while living independently.
Virtual Outpatient Treatment (Telehealth)
Sanford Virtual Addiction Treatment, or telehealth, offers the same evidence-based practices that our in-person programs provide, but in the comfort and safety of home. Classes are conducted by “video-chat” technology using smartphones or computers. Virtual outpatient treatment is real-time with a master’s level clinician as facilitator. Programs offered are Medication-Assisted Treatment; Partial Hospitalization Programs, Intensive Outpatient Programs; Outpatient Programs; Eating Disorder Treatment and one-on-one and family counseling.
