What is Partial Hospitalization?

A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), also referred to as “day treatment,” is a great option for receiving intensive treatment without entering into a 24-hour inpatient setting. PHP allows an individual to live at home, while entering into a treatment setting during the day. PHP is more structured than Intensive Outpatient Programs, and is an effective option for those who can manage living at home while still making the commitment to receiving in-depth treatment during the week.

Partial Hospitalization, on its own, can be an effective way to receive treatment. However, it is often used as a way of continuing treatment after inpatient treatment. According to the National Association of Private Psychiatric Hospitals and the American Association for Partial Hospitalization, “partial hospitalization means an outpatient program specifically designed for the diagnosis or active treatment of a serious mental disorder when there is a reasonable expectation for improvement or when it is necessary to maintain a patient’s functional level and prevent relapse or full hospitalization.” Partial Hospitalization can be an effective way to continue treating aspects of addiction while serving as a transition between inpatient and outpatient services.

PHP programs are often 4-6 hours per day 3-5 days a week. PHP programs allow a client to continue receiving individual and group counseling, holistic treatment, and continue to work on the development of an aftercare program to prepare an individual for living a sober lifestyle after they are no longer receiving treatment. According to the American Psychiatric Association, “recommended for patients in the early stages of treatment or those transitioning from residential or hospital settings. This environment is suitable for patients who do not need full-time supervision and have some available supports but need more structure than is usually available in less intensive outpatient settings. This treatment encompasses day care programs and evening or weekend programs that may offer a full range of services. The frequency and length of sessions is usually tapered as patients demonstrate progress, less risk of relapse, and a stronger reliance on drug-free community supports” Partial Hospitalization can be a necessary step in transitioning from more rigorous inpatient settings to IOP, and help an individual develop the necessary skills to maintain sobriety after treatment has ended.
