When dealing with a significant substance addiction, there will come a time when the risk of using becomes too high. That’s the point where everything in your life will start falling apart and your loved ones will start getting hurt. However, you don’t have to let things progress that far. You always have the option of walking away from drugs or alcohol and getting help at an addiction treatment center.
Individuals who suffer from a moderate to severe addiction but still have the ability to remain sober when at home during the evenings should consider attending a partial hospitalization program (PHP) addiction treatment.
Partial hospitalization programs for addiction treatment occur during the day and are for people with moderate to severe addictions. Other addiction treatment programs for people with moderate to severe addictions are inpatient or residential. This means that they require that patients live at their rehab facilities 24/7 while receiving treatment. So, if you suffer from a moderate to severe addiction but have responsibilities that require that you at least spend your evenings and nights at home, you should attend partial hospitalization program treatment.
Partial hospitalization program (PHP) treatment is an outpatient form of addiction treatment that requires that patients attend treatment all day for five to eight hours a day, five to seven days a week. Because of all the time that partial hospitalization program treatment requires, it’s the most restrictive form of outpatient treatment.
PHP treatment is also very intense and structured. Thus, partial hospitalization program treatment is the closest outpatient form of addiction treatment to inpatient or residential treatment. That’s why PHP treatment is the best form of rehab for people with moderate to severe addictions that still need to spend their evenings and nights at home.
Since partial hospitalization program treatment occurs all day long, another name for it is day treatment. PHP, or day, treatment is very intense. Thus, you need to put in the time and hard work towards your recovery when attending this form of treatment.
PHP patients spend their evenings and nights at home. So, it’s important that they show great restraint and avoid relapsing. As long as you make good progress in a PHP, your chances of recovery are excellent. However, you might need to attend residential treatment if your PHP level of care isn’t enough to treat you.
As the most restrictive form of outpatient treatment, the PHP level of care holds many similarities to residential treatment. First, much of the treatment process focuses on individual therapy. This is the part of addiction treatment that requires that patients talk one-on-one with a therapist.
Your focus would be on learning the reason behind why you’ve developed an addiction. Subsequently, you would start looking for ways to deal with those reasons behind your addiction. This usually includes developing better coping skills.
Second, both of these forms of treatment usually involve some sort of group therapy. In a residential treatment center, your participation in group therapy would be very likely. You would need that opportunity to learn from other patients while perhaps building support resources for the future.
Finally, both of the forms of treatment could be integrated with holistic treatment methods of care such as:
Where the residential and PHP options differ is what happens when not in therapy. In a residential treatment center, you would settle in, converse with other inpatient patients, take part in group activities, and enjoy the facility’s amenities. When the treatment day is over in a PHP, you would return to your own home to manage your personal responsibilities.
The main difference between a partial hospitalization program and an intensive outpatient program (IOP) is the amount of time that you spend in rehab when in these programs. When in a PHP program, you spend five to eight hours in treatment a day, five to seven days a week. The time that you spend in treatment during an IOP is much less.
How much less? Most IOP treatments require that patients show up for treatment for around a few hours a day, a few days a week. During that time, almost all of the treatment will focus on individual therapy and workshop tasks. The good news is that should you struggle in an IOP, you could move up to a PHP without having to commit to residential treatment.
Partial hospitalization program treatment is very different from general outpatient program, or OP, treatment. How are they different? First, partial hospitalization program treatment exists as a primary form of treatment. Conversely, outpatient program treatment is more of a maintenance form of treatment. Thus, OP treatment is a form of treatment that therapists will use for patients who just need a little extra therapy to help them achieve or maintain sobriety.
Outpatient program treatment also differs from PHP treatment in that outpatient program treatment only requires a time investment of a couple of hours a day, one to two days a week. This is much less time than the intensive five to eight hours a day, five to seven days a week of treatment that patients spend in PHP treatment.
There are many benefits to partial hospitalization program treatment. In order for you to understand the viability of a PHP, it might be worthwhile to discuss the potential benefits. They include:
Nothing about addiction treatment should be seen as a “one size fits all” solution. Although the PHP treatment option is a good one, it’s not always the right one for everyone. With that in mind, let’s take a look at who might benefit the most from this treatment option.
First and foremost, residential treatment is often the best option for any client with a severe addiction. However, not everyone with a significant addiction issue is going to be able to commit to residential treatment and having to live in a treatment center 24/7. If you suffer from an intense addiction but can’t commit to living in a treatment center 24/7, partial hospitalization program treatment is the best form of treatment for you.
Residential treatment can run for as much as $10,000 per month, depending on the rehab center that you receive treatment at. If you lack adequate insurance and financial resources to pay for residential treatment, you might find PHP treatment more affordable. Typically, PHP treatment costs around $5,000.
Partial hospitalization program treatment might be a great option for you if you’ve done well in a residential treatment center. If your progress is good and your addiction treatment specialists believe that you would benefit from continued treatment but in a less restrictive environment, a PHP would be the natural next step.
