There are many different types of addiction treatment programs. This allows clients to find the plan that best suits their medical needs and their lifestyle. One option is the partial hospitalization program. Find out what partial hospitalization is, who the right candidates are for this program and how it can help clients ready who are for recovery at Gateway.
When it comes to seeking addiction treatment, clients tend to think they have only two options–residential and outpatient. It is worth noting that clients actually have access to a wide range of programs that may or may not offer accommodation. A partial hospitalization program is one great example.
One way to think of PHP is to picture a typical workweek or week of school. It becomes a big part of your life, and it consumes much of your day on a regular basis. A partial hospitalization program is very similar. Although clients will go home in the evenings and sleep in their own beds, they are still committed to a full day of support, treatment, and therapy at Gateway.
Some clients will be able to step straight into a partial hospitalization program. Others, however, can use PHP as a valuable stepping stone that brings them a little closer to total independent living.
Clients can start in residential care and then transition to partial hospitalization. From there, they can step down once again to an outpatient program that meets once or twice a week. There are even further options like sober living opportunities. This full continuum of care ensures that clients receive the specific levels of care they truly need.
Partial hospitalization programs are effective primarily because clients get daily support and access to a wide range of therapies. However, also an advantage is the routine of PHP. In partial hospitalization programs, clients will be able to stick to a regular schedule.
Several days a week, typically either five or six days in a row, clients will participate in treatment programs. This means waking up at a set time, traveling to the facility and beginning the day. Following a routine means that there are fewer decisions to make. It also makes it easier to establish lifelong healthy habits that support sobriety.
A partial hospitalization program can be the right way to transition back to independent living and sobriety. At Gateway, clients can find a program and a location that supports their recovery. Call 877–377–2027 or contact us online to get on track towards the healthy life you deserve.
