What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

Hands of a person and their doctor as they learn what a partial hospitalization program is

At The Canyon in Santa Monica, CA, we understand the journey to recovery is unique for each individual. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing a range of treatment options tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients. Among these options is the partial hospitalization program (PHP), a structured yet flexible treatment approach designed to offer intensive support without needing overnight stays. Contact our experienced team online or call 424.465.5182 today to delve into what PHP is, who it’s for, and how it can be a pivotal part of your path to recovery.

What to Know About Partial Hospitalization Programs

What is a partial hospitalization program? PHP is a form of outpatient treatment that offers a high level of care while allowing clients the freedom to live at home. Here’s what sets PHP apart:

  • Structured treatment – PHP provides structured therapy during the day, similar to what clients might experience in an inpatient setting.
  • Flexibility – Despite its structure, PHP allows clients to return home in the evenings, blending rigorous treatment with real-world application.
  • Comprehensive care – These programs typically include individual therapy, group sessions, and possibly medication management.

This type of program is ideal for individuals seeking an intensive treatment experience but with stable living situations and a supportive home environment.

Who Would Benefit from a PHP?

Partial hospitalization programs are particularly suited for individuals who:

  • Have completed an inpatient program and are looking for a step-down level of care
  • Require more support than traditional outpatient services offer
  • Are experiencing substance use issues alongside mental health challenges but do not need round-the-clock supervision

While not every individual requires this level of care, PHP can play a crucial role in recovery for those who do. It offers structured support and therapy to individuals transitioning from inpatient care to independent living, providing a vital bridge to healing and wellness.

How Does a PHP for Addiction Treatment Work?

The Canyon’s PHP focuses on providing comprehensive care that addresses both substance use disorders (SUDs) and co-occurring mental health conditions. Our approach includes:

  • Personalized treatment plans – Tailored to address each client’s unique needs, incorporating therapies such as CBT and DBT.
  • Integration of 12-step principles – Encouraging participation in 12-step programs as part of a holistic recovery process.
  • Family involvement – Offering family therapy sessions to support healing and understanding within the client’s support system.

Critical components of PHP include individual and group therapy sessions, education on coping mechanisms and relapse prevention, and holistic treatments for comprehensive wellness.

What to Expect from Partial Hospitalization Programs

Embarking on a PHP at The Canyon means stepping into a supportive, structured, healing environment. Clients can expect:

  • Daily programming – Engage in therapeutic activities and sessions designed to promote recovery, typically five days a week for several hours each day.
  • A focus on real-world application – The freedom to apply what you learn in treatment to your everyday life.
  • A supportive community – Connect with others on similar paths to recovery, offering mutual support and understanding.

Understanding what a partial hospitalization program is and how it fits into the spectrum of addiction treatment options can help you or your loved one make informed care decisions. At The Canyon, we’re committed to providing a supportive, compassionate, and effective environment for those seeking to overcome addiction and co-occurring mental health issues.
