Getting professional help for addiction is vital, but what is even more important is finding the right addiction treatment programs. Several different kinds of treatment programs are available for drug or alcohol use disorders, and each is designed to accommodate the diverse needs of people in recovery. A partial hospitalization program may provide the ideal balance of structure and flexibility if you have a moderate to severe addiction but cannot attend residential treatment.

What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program?
A partial hospitalization program, or PHP, is an intensive outpatient treatment for addiction and mental health. The goal of a PHP is to provide the necessary support and treatment for individuals to:
- Overcome drug or alcohol addiction
- Manage co-occurring mental health disorders
- Understand the connection between thoughts and behaviors
- Develop coping skills
- Strengthen communication skills
- Reduce the risk of relapse
Partial hospitalization programs are the most structured outpatient treatments option and work well for people with moderate to severe addictions.
How Does a PHP Work?
A partial hospitalization program operates less intensively than a residential treatment program. For a specific treatment schedule, you should reach out to the facility. But here is a general overview of how PHPs work:
- You will attend treatment sessions three to seven days a week.
- Sessions last anywhere from three to six hours a day.
- Most programs occur during the day, but there may be options for evening or weekend sessions.
- You will participate in individual and group therapy during your sessions.
- You will meet with a care team member to manage your medications.
PHPs typically last six weeks or so but might be longer if your treatment team determines a need for extended treatment. However, the goal is to transition to a lower level of care afterward. Most people move on to an intensive outpatient program (IOP), then to a traditional outpatient program (OP). From there, an alumni or aftercare program will help support long-term recovery.
Do You Need a Partial Hospitalization Program?
With several different outpatient treatment options available, knowing what sets them apart can be confusing. To help you understand if a PHP may suit you, consider the following benefits of PHPs.
Intensive Support on an Outpatient Schedule
PHPs are designed for individuals requiring a higher level of care than traditional outpatient or intensive outpatient services but do not need round-the-clock supervision in residential treatment programs.
Access to Similar Treatment as Residential Programs
With a PHP, you receive a similar combination of medication management, support, and therapy as you would in residential treatment so that you will enjoy most of the same benefits for your recovery.
Flexibility to Maintain Work and Personal Obligations
Although you will need to attend the treatment facility more often than those in an intensive outpatient or traditional outpatient program, you will have the flexibility of returning home each evening. Your facility may also offer the option of evening or weekend sessions to make it even easier to attend treatment. This will allow you to keep up with work or school responsibilities and care for your children or pets.
