Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Partial Hospitalization Program

There are many different types of addiction treatment programs that you can take depending on the severity of your addiction. If you’re stable enough to remain clean when left alone at home at night but still need intensive treatment, you should look into partial hospitalization program treatment.

Partial hospitalization program treatment, otherwise known as PHP treatment, is also ideal for people that want the best of inpatient and outpatient treatment. PHP treatment provides the best of both worlds by offering its patients the medical attention that inpatient treatment provides while still allowing their patients to stay in their own homes at night as outpatient treatment does.

To further understand if PHP treatment is right for you, compare it to the other types of addiction treatment. Once you do that, you’ll be able to see which form of addiction treatment best suits you and your needs. That’s why, in this article, we’re providing you with a detailed comparative analysis of partial hospitalization programs with other treatment programs. We’re also going to inform you about the benefits of attending a partial hospitalization program.

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

Call us now 662-470-6169

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a treatment program that requires you to attend rehab in a hospital-like facility all day and then allows you to live at home during the evenings. PHP treatment patients need to attend rehab all day because their addictions are still quite severe. Therefore, they need medical attention and some detox services, despite being in an outpatient form of treatment.

In fact, most partial hospitalization programs provide patients with withdrawal services and medical attention in hospitals during part of the treatment program. Hence, the name partial hospitalization program.

Because PHP treatment occurs all day, another common name for it is day treatment. The amount of time that you’re supposed to spend in day treatment is around six hours a day, five to six days a week. This means that you cannot keep a day job while attending PHP treatment.

What Benefits Does PHP Treatment Provide Its Patients

There are many benefits that you’ll receive when attending PHP treatment. These benefits range from clinical, financial, and social.

Clinical Benefits of PHP Treatment

A clinical benefit of PHP treatment is that you get to attend the highest level of addiction treatment possible. This is evident in the fact that all PHP patients receive constant medical attention from doctors and other medical professionals throughout the daytime. The level of medical care and withdrawal services available to patients of PHP treatment programs isn’t given in any other kind of outpatient program.

Another clinical benefit of PHP treatment is that it is a great way to transition patients from inpatient treatment to lesser forms of outpatient treatment.

Financial Benefits of PHP Treatment

Attending PHP treatment is financially beneficial because most insurance companies cover it. In fact, most insurance companies would rather pay for PHP treatment than inpatient treatment. This is because inpatient treatment lasts much longer than partial hospitalization program treatment does.

The fact that PHP treatment occurs for a shorter amount of days than inpatient treatment also helps patients save money. That’s because any bit of rehab that your insurance doesn’t cover will be much cheaper to pay for in PHP treatment than in inpatient treatment.

Social Benefits of PHP Treatment

PHP treatment is socially beneficial because it allows you to spend your evenings in the comfort of your own home. Therefore, you can still spend time with your family while attending PHP treatment. You can even take care of most of your at-home responsibilities while attending PHP treatment. The only thing that you cannot do while attending partial hospitalization program treatment is maintain a day job.

Who Benefits Most from PHP Treatment

While there are numerous benefits to attending PHP treatment, some people benefit from PHP treatment more than others. Some of the people that benefit most from attending PHP treatment are those that have already completed detox. This is because, although PHP treatment provides some detox services, it’s shorter in length of time. Therefore it’s better for you to have already received some detox prior to going there.

PHP also most benefits people that are strongly motivated to become sober. This is because partial hospitalization programs are intense. In fact, it’s the most intense outpatient treatment addiction program. Therefore, the only way that you’ll successfully make it through it is to have the inner motivation to do so.

Finally, PHP treatment is most beneficial to people who have a strong support system at home. This is evident in the fact that you get to spend your nights at home while attending PHP treatment.

If your home life is counterintuitive to your ability to remain sober while in PHP treatment, you must live in an on-site treatment living facility. If your home life is not good and living in an on-site treatment living facility isn’t an option for you, you should attend inpatient treatment.

Partial Hospitalization Programs for Mental Health

One benefit of partial hospitalization treatment is that it incorporates numerous different types of therapy in its programs. To make PHP therapy even more beneficial, you can receive most of the therapies in individual, group, or family format. Therefore, regardless of the PHP mental health services that you’re receiving, you can likely receive it through one of the following ways.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) works to change a person’s negative thoughts and behaviors and turn them into positive ones. CBT is arguably the most popular type of PHP therapy. This is because, during addiction treatment, patients use CBT to help them recognize the things that trigger their drug use so that they can change the way that they deal with those things.

Contingency Management

Contingency management is a form of PHP therapy that provides rewards for rehab patients when they reach certain goals. For example, a person in rehab can get a contingency management reward for passing a negative drug test. Contingency management helps change the behavior patterns of addicts to more positive ones over time through positive reinforcement.
