Considering a Partial Hospitalization Treatment Program (PHP)
These programs refer to short, intense treatments in a clinical setting. It is a step down from inpatient hospitalization but more intense than outpatient care. The partial hospitalization treatment model is recommended for people that have difficult symptoms but do not require full-time care.
These programs follow a structured schedule of three to five days during the week, with patients returning home at night. This helps to avoid isolating the patient from their friends and family, while providing a structured environment with access to psychiatrists, nurses, social workers and other health practitioners during recovery.
Candidates for Partial Hospitalization Addiction Treatment Programs:
Someone considering this treatment should first check with a doctor and share their concerns to get more information on the benefits. There are many services that outpatient treatment provides that would be wise to keep in mind.
Access to treatment professionals including psychiatrists, nurses, therapists and social workers.These types of programs excel in providing the initiative towards living independently. They let you keep your self-sufficiency while allowing for therapeutic treatments in a professional setting. Many patients find a PHP program to be a great option for their drug addiction treatment needs. It allows for medical detoxification and rehabilitation without inhibiting full functionality in society.
Expectations in Partial Hospitalization Addiction Treatment
Expectations are directed towards the provider and patient at the same time. Rules are put in place to protect the safety and rights of members and ensure the best environment for recovery. When starting a program, assessments will be made to determine how much care is needed and which specific methods will be the most productive. Treatment plans will help with anxiety, mental health, trauma, eating disorders and most often, substance abuse. Schedules vary within different institutions and can be three to five days a week on average. The length of treatment can be as short as two weeks or it can last several months, and is individual to the providing institution. The goal of choosing one of these programs is to provide non-intrusive and effective care that fits the patient’s needs.
The primary goal is to maintain and increase functionality in a non-restrictive setting, allowing for recovery in a short time.
This recovery model places emphasis on the individual and their ability to maintain normalcy despite their symptoms, allowing the achievement of stability and rehabilitation, rising above limitations imposed by their illness.
