Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) / Day Treatment

Day Treatment Table of Context

What is a Day Treatment / Partial Hospitalization Program? 

Day treatment, also known as Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), is for those individuals with mental, emotional, and/or addictive disorders who do not require twenty-four-hour inpatient care.

What is the difference between Partial Hospitalization and Residential Treatment? 

PHP allows clients access to therapy, counseling, and aftercare support for a minimum of six hours per day, five days per week. While residential care is for individuals struggling with drug and alcohol addiction who need 24/7 care.  

PHP is most appropriate for clients who can’t commit to a traditional inpatient addiction treatment program due to work, school, or family concerns. However, since PHP is less structured and more flexible, it’s crucial that clients have a strong network of supportive friends and family who are actively involved in their recovery process.

What is the length of the day treatment program? 

The treatment process is highly individualized. If you are interested in a day treatment program for yourself or a loved one, they will work out a plan that is just right for your needs. The length of the program depends on the severity of the addiction (how much was used, what substances, the length of time in the addiction, etc.).

When speaking with an intake person, honesty is of utmost importance. If you are addicted to heroin or alcohol, a medical detox may be necessary before beginning a day treatment plan.

Is the Day Treatment Program a good option for you or your loved one? 

If the home environment is stable clean and sober, day treatment may be a good option. In general, day treatment provides all of the essential tools and amenities that an inpatient facility provides, with the benefit of lower cost, and going home at night. Be sure to check your insurance policy, as most day treatment centers may be covered fully or partially.
