What Are the Benefits of a Partial Hospitalization Program?

patient and doctor discuss the benefits of a partial hospitalization program

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) benefits from treatment options for substance use and co-occurring disorders. A partial hospitalization program offers ample therapeutic resources while allowing for continued engagement with life outside therapy. Clients spend focused hours within the therapeutic setting, then return to relationships, work, and outside pursuits. Is PHP for you?

At Peachtree Recovery Solutions, we build balance, real-life skills, and opportunities to apply skills learned in therapy. With an aim toward independent living, our partial hospitalization programs teach clients to integrate new strategies for healthier, more adaptive lives.

Reasons to Choose a PHP

Clients and loved ones may find their way to a PHP through a better understanding of substance abuse and signs that higher-level intervention can help. Multiple reasons may lead to a partial hospitalization scenario. You could be experiencing some of these mindsets:

  • Deepening mental health issues or escalating disorders
  • Prolonged feelings of loss, grief, or anxiety that hinder close relationships and commitments
  • Severe or unexpected mood swings and dangerous behaviors
  • Suicidal thoughts and ideation, either new or ingrained
  • An inability to cope with escalating behavioral issues

When independent efforts to manage behaviors and mindsets fail, a PHP helps create a sense of personal growth and growing normalcy. As clients commit to the hard work of working through addiction and mental health challenges, they continue to engage with their lives outside therapy. If life feels unmanageable and efforts to resolve behaviors or maintain equilibrium have failed, help is available. A partial hospitalization program has significant benefits and could be the right choice for healing.

Benefits of a Partial Hospitalization Program

After completing inpatient therapy, most clients continue with an outpatient or partial hospitalization program. And for a client who seeks definitive therapy without the full-time nature of an inpatient facility, a PHP has much to offer.

More Cost-Effective than Inpatient Care

While a PHP enlists expertise from a range of mental health professionals, it costs less than a full-time inpatient program. Often, insurance companies cover more sessions within a PHP, allowing clients to continue to find more affordable care.

Flexible Schedule

A PHP facilitates outside responsibilities and accountability because the schedule is fluid. Commitments to relationships, hobbies, jobs, or school complement the work done in therapy, as clients learn to apply new strategies to real-time stressors and situations. With a PHP, clients spend evenings, weekends, and free time with loved ones or on their own. By engaging in life outside therapy, many clients find a sense of balance.

Medical and Mental Health Professionals are Involved

Unfettered access to a wide range of therapists and medical professionals creates a range of resources. Clients benefit from a multidisciplinary team of experts with multiple professionals helping to develop an individualized care plan in a PHP. They can benefit from an interdisciplinary team of experts.

New Skills in Real-Time

After spending concentrated hours in therapy, clients then try out new strategies at home, work, and outside life. The opportunity to transfer skills to everyday life accelerates the transition from partial hospitalization to independent living.

Individual and Group Therapy Options

The ability to benefit from professional and peer support is a real strength of a partial hospitalization program. Through a PHP, clients gather feedback and input from many perspectives. There can be many benefits to participating in a partial hospitalization program. Additional benefits of a PHP include:

  • Improved ability to function in everyday life
  • Greater independence
  • A feeling of accomplishment and self-worth
  • A sense of belonging to a group
  • Improved communication and social skills
  • A safe and structured environment
