There are several levels of addiction treatment for substance use disorders. Choosing the correct treatment option for you or your loved one is critical to receiving effective therapy. Some people with a severe addiction to drugs or alcohol, or who have been long-time users and are only now getting the assistance they need to heal, may require the most intensive form of inpatient care. However, a PHP (partial hospitalization program) provides numerous advantages to individuals suffering from a lesser degree of addiction or those who have previously gone through treatment but are seeking help after a relapse.
If you’re beginning this process and would like help determining your next steps, reach out to Ashwood Recovery. Our fully equipped facility offers partial hospitalization programs for various substance use disorders to individuals from all walks of life and professional occupations.
What to Expect in a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
A partial hospitalization program consists of several one-on-one therapy sessions each week. These sessions aim to address the underlying causes of addiction, develop coping skills, and establish a plan for life after rehabilitation.
In some cases, individual therapy is combined with other services such as group or alternative therapies. Medication-assisted treatment may be an option for people who respond well to it. A PHP allows addiction treatment specialists to keep track of clients’ continuing medical needs and make any necessary changes in medication administration as needed.
Clients in PHPs may also benefit from life skills training, recreational activities, and nutritious meals. Clients often get counseling on maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle after their program to help them live a better life.
Benefits of a PHP
The benefits can be significant for individuals who want to spend more time at home while still receiving high-quality mental health treatment and access to well-regulated medication and therapy. Clients may have peaceful evenings with their families, helping to ensure strong connections when they complete therapy and continuing to benefit from frequent contact with their primary support network.
In some instances, PHPs enable clients to continue working and generating money. This can help clients and their families better manage long-term care costs. Similarly, this option allows for more time with family while minimizing interruption to child development for those receiving treatment while caring for children. At the same time, their parent works toward improved personal health.
PHP may not be the best option for everyone, but a qualified clinician can help you make this determination. To get you started, here are a few indicators that this program type might work well for you or your loved one:
- The client has recently completed an inpatient program and is ready for ongoing care that’s one step down from what they’ve been receiving.
- The client’s home is safe and stable, and others who live there fully support their recovery.
- The client is personally invested in their healing journey.
- The client is able and willing to commute to sessions the majority of days of the week.
