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 treatment or residential rehab program. Outpatient treatment programs focus 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 alcohol and drug rehab treatment 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:
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:
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.
