It's never to late, Break the Addiction

PHP Treatment Center

One of the treatment programs that Sprout Health Group provides is Partial Hospitalization.

The goal of treatment in a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is to assist the individual in exercising greater freedoms derived from less supervision, as well as, in applying newly-learned cognitive and behavioral competencies in the real world setting.

php For some individuals this treatment is more like an Outpatient Program, just more intensive with more structure. Some individuals would describe a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) as a lower level of care from Inpatient Treatment Programs. However PHPs are described, they require the individual to attend a highly structured addiction treatment program that runs for as few as 6 hours per day for at least 5 days a week. All of the treatment modalities expected from a residential inpatient program, including individualized psychological counseling sessions, group and family therapy sessions, and other complementary therapies are also provided in a Partial Hospitalization Programs. These complementary therapies can be in the form of experiential therapeutic modalities, recreational activities, or a combination of both. The goal of treatment in a Partial Hospitalization Program is to assist the individual in exercising greater freedoms derived from less supervision, as well as, in applying newly-learned cognitive and behavioral competencies in the real world setting. Group therapy sessions are especially useful as they provide individuals with a specific venue where they can share their life experiences with others who may have gone the same route. This helps facilitate discussion and the collective resolution of identified problems common to most if not all members of the group.

Unfortunately, PHPs are not for everyone. Typically, partial hospitalization is indicated for individuals whose conditions have just been stabilized in an acute care facility, but may still require constant monitoring, albeit not on a 24-hour basis. Additionally, individuals who may have psychiatric mental health disturbances, that are quite challenging to be managed in an outpatient setting, but does not necessarily require 24-hour monitoring may also benefit from the highly structured programming of Partial Hospitalization. As a general rule however, partial hospitalization programs are primarily indicated for individuals who do not have yet very severe substance addictions. It is highly possible that they may have substance abuse issues but it does not necessarily mean that they already have serious addictions.

This is very important to understand because the setup of Partial Hospitalization Programs is anchored on trust and accountability. Since the individual will be going home right after every treatment session, they must have the required emotional competence to stay the course as temptations are abundant in the outside world. This also means that the individual will have to have an unusual strength of character and will to help ensure that they do not take drugs or alcohol while undergoing a PHP. Furthermore, their social support network must be solid. The individual’s family and extensive network of friends must be  totally supportive of the individual’s efforts to leading a more sober and chemical dependence-free life.

It is therefore very important that the family as well as any significant others be actively involved in the assessment, treatment planning, implementation, and the discharge planning of the individual. The latter is very important because it provides the necessary tools and resources for the individual to lead a healthier life. Aftercare support groups including behavioral health providers in an outpatient setting can be recommended to the individual to help him remain faithful to his recovery goals.

Sprout Health Group’s Partial Hospitalization Program is based on trust and the firm belief that individuals can decide for themselves how they would like to receive their treatment. By providing individuals with evidence-based treatment protocols, Sprout is able to play an important role in helping individuals with substance abuse issues to take full control of their lives. Whether they only have substance use disorders or are compounded by other co-occurring conditions, Sprout Health Group’s PHPs are able to help these individuals.
