PHP, sometimes referred to as a day treatment program, offers outpatient addiction treatment services such as drug counseling and individual and group therapy. It also provides access to medical care and medication if needed. If someone needs immediate medical attention, they work closely with hospital centers to make sure people get the help they need. PHP has easy access to higher levels of care should it be necessary.
Partial care hospitalization typically takes place in a professional medical or therapeutic setting, such as a clinic or private facility. Patients typically attend sessions five days per week for at least four hours each day; these sessions may involve individual or group therapy, medication management, life skills training, and other activities that are meant to help patients learn healthy coping strategies and gain insight into their behaviors.
In addition to attending regular therapy sessions, patients living in PC facilities will also have access to onsite amenities such as exercise equipment, cafeteria services, recreational activities, educational classes, and more—allowing them to keep up with their hobbies while still receiving the help they need to manage their condition effectively.
Patients can expect to stay in PC facilities anywhere from two weeks to several months depending on their needs; however, most programs usually last no longer than 90 days so that they don’t become stagnant or boring for the patient. Additionally, all treatments plans should be customized according to each individual’s unique needs and goals so that they can get the most out of their time spent in partial care hospitalization.
