WHAT IS A PARTIAL HOSPITALIZATION PROGRAM?
Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) provides an affordable and relatively quick method for long-term hospitalization because the person lives at home while receiving care at a nearby hospital or medical center.
Aside from reducing the financial burden, a Partial Hospitalization Program allows the person to remain with their family and continue their studies or job. In a typical setting, patients generally receive care up to seven times a week in designated hours that suit their lifestyle.
The wide range of treatment includes treatment of alcoholism and substance abuse. Recently, Partial Hospitalization Programs started focusing on treating depression, bipolar disorder, anorexia, Alzheimer’s disease, and mental health issues. The type of treatment depends on the needs of each individual person. Group therapy, psych-educational groups, skill-building, individual therapy, and psychopharmacological assessments, are possible program types.
HOW MUCH DOES PARTIAL HOSPITALIZATION COST?
The cost of Partial Hospitalization will depend on the specific treatment service you select, the length of treatment and extent of clinical care, and whether you are paying under a health insurance plan. Depending on your health insurance policy, a percentage of inpatient costs might be covered by your provider. For those paying for treatment out-of-pocket, you might try paying for inpatient treatment by utilizing personal savings, applying for grants or scholarships, or taking on personal debt from credit cards or an unsecured loan.

PROFOUND TREATMENT PARTIAL HOSPITALIZATION PROGRAM
Our Partial Hospitalization Program at Profound Treatment Center is set in a way to mimic a real-life setting while patients receive full-time treatment and 24-hour support.

This is especially beneficial for those without a traditional support system that they can integrate back into after participating in the program. Individuals with behavioral, mental, or substance abuse care needs that do not meet the criteria for a more intensive program, such as traditional inpatient or residential treatment levels, are best suited for a Partial Hospitalization Program.

HOW DOES PHP WORK?
Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a personalized experience that is designed to meet the specific needs, goals, strengths, and weaknesses of each client. During the admission process, individuals will be given a thorough assessment to determine whether the program is right for them. Our assessment process also ensures that our medical staff has the necessary information they need to develop an Individualized Treatment Plan that will guide the patient’s recovery progress throughout their time at Profound Treatment Center.
Our PHP consists of the following clinical therapies:
Individual therapy consists of one-on-one counseling between the client and a therapist. The therapist will therapeutically address issues such as emotionally focused therapy, grief counseling, past trauma therapy, coping with addiction, processing success, relapses in recovery, and family issues. Individual therapy is useful because it provides a safe space for patients to address issues that they may be unwilling to discuss in a group setting. In our PHP level of care, each client is required to participate in at least one individual therapy session per week.
Group therapy, which is led by our licensed and certified addiction therapists, is the foundation for our structured Partial Hospitalization Program. These sessions provide each patient the time to share their unique life experiences with their peers to understand the challenges and successes of a life affected by substance abuse disorder. Group therapy sessions provide safe and structured environments in which individuals can improve on productive interpersonal communication skills, as well as develop additional verbal and written skills that are beneficial to their recovery process.
As a family member, spouse, or close friend, you know that substance addiction doesn’t just affect the individual who is using – it also affects friends and family. This idea translates to recovery, as well: recovery affects friends and families just as much as the addiction affects them. Recovery from drug or alcohol addiction is not something that should be done alone. Family therapy helps to mend wounds between family members caused by the patient’s actions and their desire to abuse drugs or alcohol. This therapy aims to help family members learn how to provide non-judgmental support to their loved ones as they work towards maintaining a sober lifestyle.

DOES PHP WORK?
Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) are an essential level of care available to people requiring treatment for substance abuse and addiction. Our program can help alleviate the risk of relapse after detoxification, residential, or inpatient treatment. Since PHP’s primary purpose is to help teach people how to manage their cravings, work through issues contributing to addiction, and learn essential life skills, this type of treatment can be useful. Like other medical services, addiction treatment is not a “one size fits all” service. Different people will respond in different ways to this type of treatment program.
PHP is a popular form of addiction treatment due to its success in helping people manage their new sober lifestyle. The National Association of Psychiatric Health Systems has called partial hospitalization practice “a critical component” of the restoration of mental health within the substance abuse community. To understand if this program is right for you, we encourage you to contact our treatment center to undergo a comprehensive assessment. Our assessment process will identify key indicators and help our team of addiction professionals understand if you will benefit from our PHP.
WHAT IS THE COST & DURATION OF PHP?
The cost of a typical PHP depends on the medical institution offering the program and the type of services availed by the patient. According to the Healthcare Industries of America, the average cost of the program is half the cost of a similar treatment that a patient is likely to get in a 24-hour in-patient medical facility. Most patients use their medical insurance to cover the expenses.
According to recent studies, PHP has produced highly effective treatments that enable individuals to get back to a regular routine in less time. Typically, a person receives intense treatment five to seven days a week. The number of hours also vary from 3 hours to 10 hours a day. The intensity ensures that the program lasts anywhere from 2 weeks to a month.
In some circumstances, the PHP program is administered for more than a month. Some PHP programs run for 2 or 3 months, but the average duration of treatment per day may be less than the intensive 2-week program. Healthcare providers may have different durations of PHP programs depending on the demographics of patients and health services.
ARE THERE TYPES OF PHP TREATMENTS?
The first step in PHP treatments is helping the individual understand and acknowledge that the addiction or the illness is adversely impacting the lifestyle of an individual. Usually, the initial sessions are geared towards letting the individual know that they will need to challenge themselves even after the intense sessions are over.
Once the aim of self-realization is fulfilled, experts start the process of detoxication that involves medication and therapy to clear the substance from the body. As detoxication is a gradual process, individuals are enrolled in counseling and behavioral therapies.
As a part of the PHP session, the patient may undergo a rehabilitation process and participate in self-help groups. These groups are groups of like-minded individuals who support each other by sharing their experiences. Often, these sober groups are so powerful that many individuals form a life-long bond and friendship.
HOW WILL PHP HELP ME?
The founders of PHP and similar rehabilitation programs understood that most individuals require a long-term solution to their addiction problems. It should be noted that the patient is most at risk when they are back in the community where no one is actively administrating them. People were at risk from typical rehabilitation programs because once the program was over, it was not unusual for individuals to become addicted again.
To help solve the problem, the two main features of the PHP programs focus on past trauma and learning sober living skills. Using these skills, the person can recover fully from addiction. Depending on the program, the steps may involve:
To deal with past trauma, experts focus on healing with a combination of family and group healings. During the initial sessions, individuals may realize that addiction is common, as there are hundreds of other individuals who are also struggling. They may meet people who have faced more significant hardships and depression. Similarly, they may hear stories of survivors as an inspiration to get rid of the addiction. Experts have found group therapy as a strong and powerful force that can help individuals become sober and take control of their lives.
Another prominent feature of the PHP is helping the individual leave a sober life after the program. During the intense sessions, individuals learn techniques on how to cope with anger, depression, and the urge to get back on drugs. Therapy can also involve spiritual and exercise sessions. A lot of individuals join sober groups to continue mingling with like-minded individuals who can become lifelong friends. Sometimes, there are 12-step initiatives that help the person lead a responsible life without the need for a mentor.
In certain instances, individuals take the responsibility to take charge of certain household matters, learn meal preparation, start regular exercise, and be accountable to housemates for their responsibilities. The purpose of the PHP program is to prepare self-sufficient individuals who can improve their lifestyles without any outside intervention.
IS OUR PHP RIGHT FOR YOU?
Participation in Profound Treatment Center’s PHP is most beneficial for:
- Those that have a sincere desire and willingness to maintain their sobriety.
- Those that have successfully completed a medical detox, inpatient hospitalization, or more rigorous residential treatment program
- Those that require intensive therapy that do not meet the needs of inpatient therapy.
- Those that have a stable support system in place allowing them to focus on recovery.
- Those that have a mental health condition, history of traumatic life events, or co-occurring disorders.
WHAT IS PHYSICAL RECOVERY LIKE IN PHP?
As you become less dependent on alcohol or drugs, new or pre-existing health issues may become identifiable. Medical supervision during the recovery process can prevent these conditions from going untreated. It is common for people who abuse drugs and alcohol to have a weakened immune system from the toxicity of chemicals that were abused. When your immune system is weakened by addiction, common germs, viruses, diseases, and genetic conditions could affect the person more than someone that had not abused drugs or alcohol.
Regular evaluation by a doctor or nurse during treatment ensures these conditions are managed, and your health is maintained. Health and fitness are an important part of recovery. Regular exercise, proper diet, and meditative treatments like adventure therapy ensure that your body is kept in proper shape as we help to heal your mind. The body and mind have a symbiotic relationship. Both need to be in a state capable of sustaining proper health to best protect the patient from relapse. For example, if a chronic physical condition goes untreated and causes pain, the client would be more likely to take pain medication. The use of pain medication would then increase the likelihood of relapse.
WHAT DOES RECOVERY LOOK LIKE AFTER PHP?
Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) aims to build a skill set within patients that allows them to smoothly transition back into society and live responsibly on their own, or within a support system. Once the patient has achieved this level of understanding, they can move onto less intensive forms of addiction management and continue their path of recovery. This may include Intensive Outpatient Services or Outpatient Services. Contact our team of addiction professionals to learn more about our PHP program.
