A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is an intensive addiction treatment option that still allows clients to live at home or in a sober living home. These programs are generally time-limited, rigorous, and allow for substantial clinical attention during the day.
You can expect to receive treatment in a hospital-like setting during the day, anywhere from three to five days per week. Often, you’re at the treatment center for about six hours per day.
PHPs are highly structured. They offer group and individual therapy, and you’ll learn the skills you need to successfully recover from substance abuse. Throughout the course of your care, you’ll connect with social workers, nurses, psychiatrists, and other health care personnel.
