A partial hospitalization program, or PHP, is a type of outpatient care that runs several hours each day, five days per week.

This structured program is ideal for those who require more intensive support throughout the day while being able to return home to a supportive sober environment at night.

A PHP is a step down from a residential program but a step up from intensive outpatient treatment. It requires longer hours but still offers flexibility for busy schedules.

If you believe that a partial hospitalization program is right for you, contact Forward Health in Ohio today. Our intake clinicians will determine if this is the right level of care for your needs.

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

A partial hospitalization program, is a structured day program that provides several hours of individual and group therapy during the week. The goal is to reintegrate you into society while getting the help you need to overcome addiction.

Here are some benefits to participating in a partial hospitalization program:

  • Less expensive than residential treatment centers, though often with the same treatment and amenities
  • Receive a high standard of care while being involved with your family, work or school
  • Bridge the gap between inpatient and outpatient treatment services
  • Accommodate your schedule with flexible hours

What is a Typical Day Like in a PHP?

The average day in PHP is spent in individual and group therapy, skill building practice, psychoeducation and evaluations. A licensed therapist will lead your therapy sessions. Family therapy is also included in most PHPs because a strong support system is strongly linked to better outcomes.

Forward Health offers highly personalized treatment services in Ohio. Your day will be tailored to your needs depending on what you need to work on. Here is what you can expect to spend your time on:

  • Group and individual counseling
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Addiction education
  • Relapse prevention planning
  • Aftercare plans and groups
  • Recreational activities
  • Healthy coping skills
  • Solution focused groups

Is Day Treatment in Ohio Right for Me?

Each person is unique, but we generally recommend PHPs to those who have a severe addiction or a history of relapse and have spent some time in residential treatment. Rather than going from intense therapy and 24-hour monitoring to a few hours of therapy each week, our PHP bridges this gap.

By participating in a day program, you can ease your transition from a residential treatment facility to your normal, everyday life. You’ll continue building skills and working on your recovery while meeting with your groups and therapists. As you progress through PHP, you can step down to a lower level of care, such as intensive outpatient or standard outpatient programs.
