What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

A Partial Hospitalization Program, also known as a Day/Night Substance Abuse Program by some Florida drug rehab centers, offers valuable services to people who are suffering from alcoholism or drug addiction. Partial hospitalization programs offer intense treatment in a less structured environment than a residential inpatient program, and more structure than an intensive outpatient program. The overall goal of a PHP or Day/Night program is to allow recovery from drugs and alcohol to take place in an environment that allows the most effective transition back into an addict’s or alcoholic’s community. Understanding how a partial hospitalization program works is critical to know if this plan or something more or less intense is required when seeking help for addiction.


One of the most successful partial hospitalization programs is offered by Recovery First – a well-established professional Florida drug rehab center. While programs differ from place to place, the PHP program at Recovery First is for 30, 60 or even 90 days – depending on the individual needs of the client. Each client will attend treatment during the day consisting of group and individual therapy sessions, with heavy emphasis on relapse prevention and denial management. In the evening, the client will be transported to a well-appointed clean and sober living center provided by the facility. Transportation is also provided to all necessary appointments or functions that the client needs to attend.

The primary focus of a partial hospitalization program is on intensive addiction treatment therapies. Therapies employed at a PHP include:

  • Individual therapy: Private sessions with an expert addiction counselor seek to allow the patient to explore underlying causes and triggers of drug abuse or alcoholism and works to arrest denial that may be occurring about the extent of the addiction, the prognosis, or the patient’s own abilities to achieve a lifetime of recovery.
  • Group Therapy: These sessions involve a professional addiction treatment facilitator and a group of people in various stages of recovery. Individuals are encouraged to enter into group discussions about experiences, feelings, aspirations, coping skills, or anything else related to the treatment of addiction or alcoholism. These group sessions help to form the foundation of a strong support network that will be essential for continued recovery after the person leaves the PHP program.
  • Family therapy: It can very difficult to evaluate oneself- even when being completely honest. This is one reason why including family members in the therapy process is so critical. Additionally, family members can sometimes be the cause of or enabling factor in a person’s addictions and so addressing this in a therapeutic environment is critical.

Other therapies such as recreational outings with the group, 12 Step and other support groups, and even writing/artistic assignments all serve to teach a person how to live life without drugs or alcohol and still find happiness and contentment.

A partial hospitalization program is highly recommended for people that have already completed a residential inpatient program and need transitional living before reintegrating fully with the community. PHP is also an excellent choice for someone who needs more supervision and structure than what an intensive outpatient program can provide but less than what a residential inpatient program provides.

Getting more information or enrolling in a PHP program is easy – all you have to do is pick up the phone. The call is free, there is no obligation, and your conversation with one of our drug addiction treatment specialists is completely confidential.
