Partial Hospitalization Program
For those patients who already have access to a stable, safe and drug-free living environment, the partial hospitalization program (PHP) may be a better fit than the residential treatment program. The path back to long-term recovery can involve treatment at many levels. Learn more about our PHP at The Recovery Village at Ridgefield.
What You Need to Know About the Partial Hospitalization Program
For patients who are suffering from a drug and/or alcohol addiction, a partial hospitalization program offers therapy and other healing activities. Patients will participate in the same rehabilitation curriculum as residential patients. However, they will live at home and commute to the treatment center 5-7 days a week.
The partial hospitalization program is ideal for patients who do require more intensive treatment than is given in the outpatient program without requiring overnight supervision. This treatment program will work best for patients that currently have a health system of support.
Intensive outpatient treatment programs are a lot like partial hospitalization programs, but where PHPs usually require 18-20 hours of treatment per week, IOPs typically consist of 9-11 hours of treatment per week.
Intake: What to Expect
We will start with a comprehensive assessment and evaluation so that we can determine if the PHP is the best fit for you. When you enter our facility, you will undergo a physical, biopsychosocial and psychiatric evaluation. The more our addiction specialists understand about your unique circumstances, the better they will be able to formulate an individualized treatment plan. Each patient will have a case coordinator to head the team so that all the staff can get to know each patient on an individual level.
The Approach to Treatment
While many treatment centers treat addictive behaviors, we take a holistic approach to treat the whole person. We use multiple disciplines and healing modalities in a blend of experience-based and traditional therapies. Patients in our partial hospitalization program will receive:
- One-on-one counseling sessions
- Daily group therapy sessions
- Recreational therapy
- Access to a team of healthcare professionals – physicians, nurses, mental health professionals and psychiatrists – that specialize in substance abuse and addiction recovery
- Medication management
Before participating in community meeting groups, you will meet with your treatment team. The morning hours will consist of the programs that line up with your individualized plan of treatment. Each week, you and your physician will meet to assess and review your progress from the standpoint of physical wellness. Group therapy and individual therapy sessions will be held after lunch.
Therapy sessions will cover topics such as substance abuse, trauma, assertiveness, sexuality, family patterns, and many more. Patients will be introduced to the 12 Steps, which are helpful for many people in recovery. In every session, your personal treatment goals will be reviewed, and you will discuss the ways in which you intend to meet these goals.
Whether you are in an outpatient treatment program or an inpatient treatment program, having the support of your family is often essential in your recovery. Addiction affects everyone. This is why we focus on the entire family throughout family therapy sessions. In our family therapy sessions, we provide the space for honest and open conversations.
The Aftercare Process
Completing a treatment program – whether it is inpatient, partial hospitalization or outpatient – is an excellent first step along the path to recovery. However, long-term recovery will require an effective aftercare program. This will usually involve recovery meetings, counseling and other tools.
