Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Also known as a day/night program, it differs from the inpatient program, allowing the patient to reside at home while commuting to a treatment facility. Although this program is equally as concentrated as Residential Rehabilitation, it allows more flexibility, maintaining a comprehensive, short term intensive treatment regimen. The idea behind the PHP programs is to allow recovery from drug and alcohol addiction in an atmosphere providing effective transitioning back into the individual’s community. Each person is assessed and given a treatment plan by an expert counselor in the field. A PHP is recommended for individuals who have completed an inpatient program and for individuals seeking a more structured environment than outpatient treatment.
