What Is Mental Health PHP Treatment?

A mental health PHP is a structured treatment program for people with mental and behavioral health disorders. Patients in a PHP usually have mental health issues that are severe enough to interfere with their day-to-day activities but who are not at risk of harming themselves or others.

Also known as day treatment, our PHP health treatment runs for several hours a day up to five days a week. Patients spend the majority of the day receiving treatment at our facility before going to work or returning home later in the afternoon or evening. Compared with other outpatient treatment programs, mental health PHPs offer the highest level of care to those who need intensive treatment but are medically stable enough to live at home.

In addition to being medically stable, ideal candidates for a mental health PHP generally have a strong support system at home. They are also highly motivated to stay in treatment and may also be experiencing at least one other co-occurring disorder, such as a substance use disorder.

A PHP mental health program is one of many treatment programs available for those who need help managing and/or recovering from a mental health disorder. Knowing more about what a PHP health treatment is and how it works can empower you to make an informed decision for yourself or a loved one who needs treatment.

Here’s more about the therapies and services we offer in our mental health PHP and how you can contact our team at Camelback Recovery today to begin treatment.

Services and Therapies Included in A PHP

Our PHP health treatment includes a variety of services and therapies that can help you effectively manage your mental illness while maintaining a high quality of life. Mental illnesses are chronic in many instances, which is why we are devoted to teaching you how to cope with daily challenges related to work, family, relationships, communication, and problem-solving while living with your condition.

After we assess and evaluate your mental health, our team of doctors and therapists will develop a customized treatment plan for you that includes only services that will benefit you. Our goal is to address the root cause of your mental health condition so you can experience healing and achieve greater well-being.

Our mental health PHP includes the following services and therapies:

  • Talk therapy, also known as psychotherapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
  • Dual diagnosis therapy (co-occurring disorders)
  • Trauma-focused CBT
  • Medication management
  • Family therapy
  • Addiction treatments
  • Social skills therapy
  • Support group meetings
  • Crisis interventions
  • Case management
  • Recovery coaching
  • Life coaching
  • Sober companions
  • Healthy meal and lunch services

At Camelback Recovery, we also specialize in treating substance use disorders and addiction. Mental illnesses affect about half of people with a substance use disorder and vice versa. If you have a co-occurring substance use disorder, we can help you manage and recover from both addiction and a mental illness at the same time to reduce your risk of relapse after your PHP has ended.

What Happens After Completion of A PHP?

While receiving treatment in our PHP, you will gradually become more independent and confident in regards to managing your mental health condition. PHPs are generally designed for short-term treatment, though your program could last for several weeks or months, depending on your recovery progress. By the end of your treatment program, you’ll be ready to transition into a lower level of outpatient care that takes place fewer hours a day on fewer days a week.

A mental health intensive outpatient program (IOP) is the next level of care after a PHP, followed by less intensive outpatient treatment and aftercare. Our treatment team will talk to you in greater detail about what comes next after your PHP and whether it will be necessary for you to continue receiving therapy.

How to Get Started in A PHP Mental Health Center

We can schedule an appointment and tour our treatment facility, and talk to you about your available treatment options. We can also discuss pricing and financing options and confirm whether your health insurance plan covers mental health treatment.

If you’re not entirely sure about whether a mental health PHP is right for you, we’ll be more than happy to talk to you in more detail about this program and about other treatment options that may be a better fit. We’ll also talk to you about what you hope to accomplish from treatment and about your personal goals as they relate to mental health and your overall livelihood. We want you to feel extremely comfortable about your decision to join our PHP.
