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-assisted treatment (MAT)
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
Dual diagnosis therapy
Substance abuse education
Relapse prevention training
Sober companions program
Sober transportation services
The Matrix Model
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. The assessment is usually conducted by a team of addiction treatment professionals made up of doctors, therapists, and counselors who will develop a customized treatment plan for you based on your situation.
