Partial Hospitalization (PHP)
PHP serves as a transitional phase of treatment. PHP is primarily designed to help bridge the gap between the inpatient and outpatient phases of treatment. PHP treatment provides a level of therapeutic support which is similar in scope to the inpatient setting. The value of PHP treatment lies in its ability to provide clients with support through a period of transition, and assist them in adjusting to greater levels of autonomy. Oftentimes PHP treatment lowers the risk of regression or relapse caused by the immediate sense of independence from 24-hour supervision provided in the residential setting. Clients who do not qualify for residential treatment, or simply do not have the time, can choose to begin their treatment experience by admitting into an outpatient program at the PHP level of care. Although it is generally recommended that clients complete a residential treatment program prior to admitting into an outpatient setting, it is not always mandatory. We recognize that each client has specific and unique needs, and strive to meet them where they are at. The PHP level of care can provide clients with the ability to address their needs, and receive therapeutic support, while maintaining flexibility which is not provided by a residential treatment setting. Additionally, a tremendous cost savings can be had if a proper evaluation determines that residential inpatient treatment is not necessary. PHP programming consists of 5-6 hours of treatment per day, 3-5 days per week, depending on the needs of each individual. During PHP programming clients meet with an individual therapist 3-4 times per week and participate in 10-12 group therapy sessions per week. Additionally, clients are seen by a psychiatrist on a weekly basis for evaluations and medication management as needed.
