Also known as day treatment, a PHP is an outpatient rehab program that meets five days a week for between four and six hours a day. A PHP rehab is the next lower level of care after an inpatient or residential rehab program. This program focuses on helping you become more independent as you continue to adjust to a healthier, sober lifestyle after a period of drug and alcohol misuse.

A PHP is ideal for those who still need intensive treatment after completing a residential or inpatient rehab program but do not require 24-hour monitoring or supervision.

Patients in a PHP have already completed drug and alcohol detox and are ready to continue receiving therapy in a highly structured setting. PHPs are also ideal for patients with a safe and supportive living environment at home or a sober living facility.

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is an outpatient treatment program offered at many drug and alcohol rehab centers. Our PHP rehab in Phoenix offers an alternative to traditional inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation by providing a way for addicts to attend therapy sessions on a part-time basis. Knowing more about PHPs and how they work can help you make the right decision when faced with choosing an addiction treatment program for yourself or a loved one.

Which Conditions Can Be Treated in a PHP?

A PHP at an addiction treatment center can be customized to treat nearly any behavioral health condition. This includes substance use disorders, mental health disorders, and behavioral addictions such as gambling addiction or video game addiction.

Other behavioral conditions that can be treated in a PHP include:

Trauma is an event or experience that is so overwhelming or frightening that it damages a person’s emotional and psychological state. This can be the result of a natural disaster, accident, physical or sexual assault, war, or other violent events. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can develop after exposure to any type of trauma. Symptoms of PTSD include flashbacks, nightmares, intrusive thoughts, avoidance behaviors, and hyperarousal.

Stress is a leading cause of illness and can be detrimental to an individual’s mental health. Stress may arise from many sources, including time pressure, interpersonal problems at work or at home, financial difficulties, or sudden disruptive events such as natural disasters. The effects of stress depend on the type of stressor—for example, chronic stressors are more harmful than acute ones. As well as being bad for your physical health it has been linked with depression and anxiety disorders which in turn can lead to other major life issues like substance abuse and suicide.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a mental illness characterized by unstable moods, relationships, and behavior. People with BPD often experience intense emotions and have difficulty regulating their feelings. This can lead to impulsive actions and chaotic relationships.

Social anxiety disorder, or social phobia

Social anxiety disorder, also known as social phobia, is a mental disorder characterized by a fear of social interactions and situations in which the person feels they will be judged or observed.

Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that features extreme moods, from deep depression to intense irritability. It can also make you feel like your life isn’t worth living and may cause hallucinations or delusions. The good news is that bipolar disorder responds well to treatment and most people who are diagnosed do very well over time.

Mood disorders aren’t just about depression. There are several different types of mood disorders, each with its own symptoms and treatments.

Anxiety disorders are a group of mental illnesses that involve excessive fear or anxiety. Panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and specific phobias are the most common types of anxiety disorders.

An illicit drug use disorder is a condition in which the use of one or more drugs leads to significant impairment or distress. It is also known as substance abuse, chemical dependency, and addiction.

Prescription drug use disorders are a type of substance abuse disorder that can occur when someone takes prescription drugs for non-medical reasons. This can lead to physical and psychological dependence on the drug, as well as negative consequences in the person’s life.

Alcohol use disorder is a condition that causes you to drink more than the average person and become addicted. It’s also called alcoholism or alcohol addiction. Alcoholics may not be able to stop drinking even if they want to because their bodies have grown used to it. They might start drinking in the morning, or throughout the day, and experience withdrawal symptoms when trying to quit.

A person who suffers from both an addiction and another behavioral health disorder is known to have a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorders. If you have a behavioral health condition not listed above, contact our team at Camelback Recovery to learn more about your treatment options.

PHPs use a variety of services and therapies to help people recover from addiction and many other mental health and behavioral disorders.

The services included in your treatment program will be selected and customized by a group of addiction treatment professionals after talking to you about your unique situation and challenges.

For example, if you started misusing drugs and alcohol to cope with trauma or PTSD, your treatment plan may involve one or more services that specifically focus on helping you overcome or cope with your trauma.

Services that may be used in a PHP include:

  • Individual and group therapy
  • 12-step support group meetings
  • Medication management
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Trauma-focused CBT
  • Dual diagnosis therapy
  • Family therapy
  • Stress management
  • Substance abuse education
  • Relapse prevention training
  • Case management
  • Sober companions program
  • Sober transportation services
  • Conflict resolution
  • Life coaching
  • The Matrix Model
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Motivational enhancement
  • Community reinforcement
  • Occupational therapy
  • Recreational therapy (like art and music therapy)

What Happens After You Complete a PHP Rehab?

The next level of care after a PHP is an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Many patients who complete a PHP transition into an IOP, which meets on fewer days a week for at least three hours a day. An IOP offers more flexibility than a PHP and is ideal for patients who have started devoting more hours to work or school or who are spending more time with their families.

Another option you have after finishing a PHP rehab is to move into a sober living facility. If you’re living at home but feel you need more structure or a stronger support system, a sober living facility can provide you with the high level of help and support you need to stay on track with your ongoing treatment plan.

At a sober living facility, you’ll be held accountable for your actions and expected to complete daily chores and attend regular support group meetings. Moving into a sober living facility can keep you closely connected to the recovery community, so you face a reduced risk of relapse.

Camelback Recovery manages two sober living homes for men and two sober living homes for women. All four of our facilities are located in Scottsdale and equipped with high-quality amenities that will make you feel right at home as you continue with your addiction recovery.

How to Get Started in a PHP

Getting started in a PHP is relatively easy. All you need to do is contact Camelback Recovery or the rehab center of your choice and schedule an appointment for intake and assessment.

After you arrive at our treatment facility, we’ll talk to you about your unique goals and challenges as they relate to your addiction and/or behavioral health condition. We’ll also talk to you in greater detail about what to expect from a PHP rehab and about the treatments and services you may receive based on your condition.
