Benefits of Partial Hospitalization

Benefits of Partial Hospitalization

A partial hospitalization program (often called PHP) provides intensive care when experiencing severe behavioral issues. In this addiction treatment program, you will receive the care you need for several hours each day while you continue to live at home. This style of outpatient rehab will allow you to slowly transition out of intensive care with the life skills, coping mechanisms, and resources to live a healthier life and do so with independence and dignity. If you would like to learn more about how a partial hospitalization program may help your mental health or recovery from a substance use disorder, consult the medical professionals at Greater Boston Addiction Centers.

What Is Partial Hospitalization in Addiction Treatment?

The name of this program can be confusing because the word hospital is a part of it. You will not be spending time in a hospital setting during PHP outpatient rehab. Instead, you will receive therapy, treatment, and care during the day in a safe, non-hospital facility and then return to your home afterward. Partial hospitalization programs can help with mental health disorders as well as most types of addiction. PHP is an option if residential treatment is not something you are willing to consider. However, you still want access to skilled and compassionate support with personalized treatment plans that can address you as a whole person.

Who Could Benefit from PHP?

Partial hospitalization is often extremely helpful for those individuals who are experiencing the following situations in their life:

  • Depression disorder
  • Anxiety disorder
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Addiction
  • Substance use disorders
  • Emotional crises
  • Discharge from an inpatient hospital stay
  • Destructive behavior 

Why Does Partial Hospitalization Work?

As with any kind of addiction treatment therapy, PHP may not be the perfect fit for you, your struggles, your personality, and your specific life situation. For example, you may not need this level of care. However, when partial hospitalization works, it is because PHP offers:

Work with Addiction Treatment Professionals

The sheer volume of professionals you will encounter and have access to during a PHP will provide a wide support network tailored to you and your needs.

Access to Individual and Group Therapy

You will receive therapy one on one as well as with a group. Oscillating between these two settings will help you focus on your issues and emotions while also being held accountable and taking on new ideas and feedback from the group. In addition, you will learn more about your addiction and mental health needs and learn coping mechanisms to help you during a lifetime of recovery.

Intense, Life-Affirming Drug Rehab Programs

Generally speaking, PHP is a significantly more intensive program than traditional outpatient treatment. As a result, you will have a better chance of achieving addiction recovery due to spending more time engaging in treatments and therapies.

Highly Effective Outpatient Care

Partial hospitalization programs are not a residential treatment plan; they are for you if you still want to live in a safe, comfortable home but still do the work to overcome your addiction and resolve your mental health struggles. Consider the following Needham drug rehab programs:

  • Women’s rehab program
  • Men’s rehab program
  • Intensive outpatient program 
  • Evening intensive outpatient program

When you speak to the addiction therapists at Greater Boston Addiction Centers for a consultation and assessment, you will learn more about PHP and the other types of therapy that may be the best for you and your specific situation.
