Partial Hospitalization (PHP)
Partial hospitalization (PHP) is an intensive outpatient approach to substance abuse or mental health treatment. It involves attending treatment during the day and returning home overnight, and it’s been proven to be effective as both a primary treatment approach and as a step down from traditional inpatient treatment.
What are the Benefits of Partial Hospitalization?
Partial hospitalization, or PHP, lets you combine intense group and individual therapy during the day with the comfort of sleeping in your own bed at night. You’ll attend an all-day program that includes options for counseling, family therapy, experimental therapy, recreational and social activities and psycho-educational groups. Our fully licensed staff works with you to develop a custom treatment plan that meets your needs and helps you work toward your mental health and chemical dependency goals.
Should You Consider Partial Hospitalization?
PHP treatment can be a great choice for individuals with a supportive home network who need more than a few hours of individual therapy a week to overcome addiction, substance abuse disorder, depression or anxiety. At Lumiere Healing Centers, we know that PHP is only successful as a mode of treatment if you have a safe environment and staunch support structure outside of the program, which is why we work with you and your family to support you during partial hospitalization treatment.
You might also consider a PHP program as a step down from full-time inpatient care. If you’ve gone through medically assisted detox or inpatient rehab and you’re ready to start testing yourself in regular life situations, a PHP program provides the ongoing structure and support you need while letting you return to some normal activities. Knowing you will return to the program the next day often gives you strength and a positive outlook as you begin slowly interacting with other people and dealing with triggers and stressors.
