A significant part of a residential, live-in recovery program for addiction treatment is the stage of partial hospitalization. While this level of care provides treatment for full-time hours during the day, it permits clients to stay at a sober community home or return to their own homes after hours. Therefore, for those who need extra care with greater freedom than residential treatment, a partial hospitalization option may help in addiction recovery. At Amatus Recovery Centers, our team wants people in our care to receive the types of treatment that will be most effective for their recovery needs. In some cases, this may include a partial hospitalization program.
4 Benefits of a Partial Hospitalization Program
1. Intensive Treatment Throughout the Program
Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are a step down from residential treatment. However, people at the PHP stage still require intensive treatment and support as they gain more independence. A partial hospitalization program offers clients the chance to have the intensity of treatment of a residential program without needing to live on-site.
For example, those in the partial hospitalization programs may engage in some of the following types of substance use recovery therapies, depending on their treatment plan:
- Family therapy
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) program
- Trauma therapy
- Group therapy
- Holistic therapy
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) program
These types of therapies help clients reach a better state of mental wellness as they progress through addiction recovery.
2. Option for Community Housing for Extra Support
For those who do not live near Amatus Recovery Centers or require additional support, sober-living community housing is an option for some partial hospitalization programs. For some people, home life is unstable or could present challenges they are not ready for at their stage of recovery. Therefore, staying in a sober-living site may benefit them.
Community housing differs from residential care in that the housing is typically located off-site and does not have staff on hand in case of issues. However, other program clients live in the housing to provide peer support when things get tough.
Plus, because these communities do not allow substance use, potential triggers are removed. This can benefit clients who would otherwise have to return home at the end of a PHP day to others in their friend or family network who use substances.
3. Professionally Overseen Treatments in Partial Hospitalization Programs
PHPs, like residential treatment programs, have professionals conducting the therapies. While each Amatus Recovery Centers location has its own staff, those chosen to work in PHP programs and other levels of care have established credentials to ensure that each client has the appropriate treatment they need.
Program staff help draft a customized treatment plan for each client. This plan works to specifically identify and meet the needs of the client. This tailoring of individual treatment plans coupled with expert guidance from staff ensures that every client has expert knowledge behind their care.
4. Lower Cost Compared to Residential Treatment
Residential treatment centers are highly intensive care facilities that require 24/7 commitment to the program. Because clients live on-site, part of this level of care’s costs includes living expenses. However, because PHP clients return home, they don’t have to incur the extra costs of housing or three meals a day at the center. Consequently, compared to residential treatment, partial hospitalization programs cost less.
In some cases, insurance may cover all or part of the cost of addiction recovery treatment. Before enrolling in any recovery program, get insurance verification from the center to see whether insurance offers coverage for the PHP. For instance, when insurance covers only part of the treatment, the cost savings in attending PHP over a residential program can help make treatment financially feasible for some.
