Our Partial Hospitalization program (PHP)
A partial hospitalization level of care is ideal for those who require stabilization and a safe space before transitioning to an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Average length of stay in our PHP spans four weeks, with an option to extend if deemed clinically appropriate. Program hours are increased at this level of care to allow for a focus on regulation in preparation to step down to our IOP. While programming is tailored to the individual’s needs, those in the partial hospitalization program routinely have 1-2 individual sessions each week, weekly psychiatry sessions, weekly family recovery virtual sessions, and neurofeedback sessions as needed.
PHP Level of Care Includes:
- 4-week length of stay (with option to extend)
- Programming 5 days per week, 5-6 hours per day
- Focus on stabilization, safety, and regulation
- Case management
- Preparation for IOP level of care
Group and one-on-one therapy is essential to our program, but we know that healing also happens through other avenues. That’s why we employ a wide range of methods and holistic options to ensure a well-rounded treatment experience that incorporates the mind, body, and soul. Optional Friday activities may include:
We use innovative therapeutic techniques to identify and treat the underlying trauma of addictive and dysfunctional processes to help people find hope and healing. Convenient, comprehensive care is available.
