Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

What is a partial hospitalization program?

A partial hospitalization program allows the individual to live at home while commuting. They visit the treatment center up to six days per week for treatment. A partial hospitalization program intends to reduce inpatient hospitalization. However, PHP still provides the individual comprehensive treatment of mental health disorders and addiction. Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) offer intensive treatment in a less structured environment than a residential inpatient program. The main goal of a partial hospitalization program is to facilitate recovery from drugs and alcohol. This takes place in a way that allows the client to transition back into their community. Transitioning from active use into “normal living” can be difficult and include risk factors. PHP programs offer a high level of support aimed at diminishing risk factors. For example, partial hospitalization programs are a great option for the addict or alcoholic who needs more supervision and structure than they would receive in an intensive outpatient program but less than what a residential inpatient program provides.
