What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

Partial hospitalization programs are a middle point between an outpatient program/ day program and an inpatient/residential care. A PHP is for someone who no longer requires intensive inpatient care but isn’t quite ready to return to their regular life without any professional support or therapy sessions.

Partial hospitalization programs offer comprehensive structured care and outpatient therapy, while at the same time making it possible for clients to engage in their lives—to some degree at least—outside of treatment. A recovering addict in a PHP program for substance use disorder treatment and drug addiction treatment will spend most of the day in the rehabilitation center, and then go home at night. Hence, PHPs are sometimes known as “day treatment.”

In California, partial hospitalization programs (PHP) typically require that a client be onsite at the rehab center for 5-7 days per week, for several hours each day. During this time the person will participate in therapeutic activities in accordance with their individual treatment plan.

Some people enter PHP rehab after hospitalization or time in a residential rehab facility. Others come directly into partial hospitalization before their substance abuse and/or mental health situation requires inpatient treatment. In either case, the client’s time is split between on-campus therapeutic sessions and time at home or work.

Benefits of PHP Rehab in Los Angeles

For a person recovering from alcohol or drug addiction (e.g., opioids, heroin, meth, benzos)—or someone with a dual diagnosis—PHP rehab is a viable treatment option, to bridge the gap between intensive residential care and outpatient treatment.

The benefits of partial hospitalization programs—including the one offered by No Matter What Recovery—include forms of treatment common to both inpatient and outpatient services. For instance:

  • Comprehensive evaluation and treatment planning
  • Professional medical care, including medication management
  • Expert mental health counseling to develop coping skills and strategies via individual and group therapy: Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), etc.
  • Regular addiction-recovery meetings
  • Access to recovery resources

Partial hospitalization treatment provides structure and accountability, while at the same time supporting the client’s capacity to reintegrate into healthy life activities. PHP treatment for opiate use disorder has also been shown to improve emotional health and overall quality of life.
