What Is Partial Hospitalization?

Two people wondering, "What is partial hospitalization?"

Navigating the world of addiction recovery services can feel challenging, especially with all the different treatment options out there. Let’s consider one particular treatment option that might be the right fit for you: partial hospitalization programs (PHP).

Understanding what PHP is all about might be the life-changer you’ve been looking for. And remember, at Sobrius in Virginia, we walk this journey with you, every step of the way. To learn more about partial hospitalization in Virginia, call us today at 888.596.6514.

What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

Imagine a treatment option that strikes the perfect balance between intense, round-the-clock care and the freedom to go home at the end of the day. In fact, that’s the exact definition of a PHP. It’s designed for individuals who need more support than what traditional outpatient programs offer but don’t necessarily require 24/7 supervision.

In a PHP, you’ll spend a good part of your day at the center, typically around five to eight hours, five to seven days a week. It’s like having the structure and comprehensive care of an inpatient program while still being able to sleep in your own bed at night.

What Happens in a PHP?

Each day in a PHP is structured around various therapy sessions and activities designed to tackle addiction from all angles. Here’s a peek at what your day might look like:

  1. Individual Therapy – This is where you get one-on-one time with a therapist, diving deep into personal issues and working through them at your own pace.
  2. Group Therapy – You’re not alone on this journey. Group sessions provide a space to share experiences, learn from others, and build a support network.
  3. Educational Workshops – Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to understanding addiction, coping strategies, and relapse prevention.
  4. Skill-Building Sessions – These are all about equipping you with the tools you need for life outside of therapy—think stress management, emotional regulation, and communication skills.

The Therapies Used in PHP

At Sobrius, we’re big believers in evidence-based approaches. That’s why cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a cornerstone of our PHP. CBT helps by changing negative thought patterns and behaviors associated with addiction, making it a powerful tool in your recovery arsenal. But that’s not all. Depending on your unique needs, you might also experience:

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) – This therapy is fantastic for learning how to manage emotions, reduce stress, and improve relationships.
  • Motivational Interviewing – Sometimes, finding the motivation to change is half the battle. This technique helps ignite that spark.
  • Holistic Therapies – We also offer therapies like art therapy, meditation, and yoga to ensure your well-being is supported from every angle.

How PHP Stands Apart

How does PHP differ from other treatment options? Compared to inpatient programs, PHP offers more flexibility, allowing you to maintain some of your daily routines and responsibilities.

Compared to standard outpatient programs, PHP provides a more intensive level of care and structured support. It’s the middle ground for those who need something more robust than outpatient care but less restrictive than full hospitalization.
