What does PHP stand for?
The commonly used abbreviation PHP actually stands for a level of care called Partial Hospitalization Program. This is a level of care where a person receives intensive treatment in a safe, supportive environment while continuing to make a transition back into community living. It gives individuals the opportunity to get back on track with life as it relates to work, family, and establishing a strong social support network. Partial Hospitalization Programming is designed for those individuals who are currently stable but are still considered to be at a high risk for relapse.
At this stage in the recovery process, an emphasis is placed on continued stabilization and intensive supportive treatment, while helping the individual to develop on their own as well.
Why Should You Consider a Partial Hospitalization Program?
By attending a Partial Hospitalization Program, you are giving yourself further support and resources during a crucial stage of development in recovery. This is the next logical step in the recovery plan for many people who have already been through a Medical Detox and other intensive levels of care. PHP offers each individual the chance to begin the important transition from a Residential Treatment level of care and back into the outside world.
In recovery from drug or alcohol addiction, individuals will face unique challenges outside of the controlled environment of the inpatient campus. In the early stages of recovery, the risk of relapse can be extremely high in some situations. Partial Hospitalization Programs ensure that the individual will still have access to intensive services, and a support system when returning to campus.
This level of care not only maintains the sense of security found in Intensive Inpatient and Residential Treatment, but it also establishes a system of accountability. Partial Hospitalization clients are still subject to drug screenings and clinical assessments to measure progress.
