What is a PHP?

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is one option that you have if you’re seeking support while you recover from substance abuse. Think of it as a middle road between inpatient and outpatient care. Most PHPs ask patients to spend their days at a treatment center but their nights at home.

This means that signing up for one will give you some of the flexibility of a traditional outpatient care plan while also providing you with much of the structure of an inpatient rehab program. In this way, many patients see PHPs as a treatment option that provides the best of both worlds.

PHPs can vary from facility to facility, so be sure to do some research on the factors that matter most to you before making a decision about where you’ll receive care. If you’ve already looked into our PHP offerings and would like to get started with one immediately, we’re happy to help. Simply call us at (800) 563-8983 to begin the process.

Who are PHPs best for?

People who have been struggling with all types of substance abuse issues can benefit from participating in a PHP. You can sign up for one whether you were addicted to heroin, morphine, alcohol, methamphetamine, or virtually any other substance. That being said, there are some who are better suited for this type of treatment than others.

PHPs work best for patients who feel confident in their ability to spend nights at home without succumbing to the temptations presented by cravings and withdrawal symptoms. If you have a strong support system at home, then a PHP could be an excellent treatment choice for you.

A PHP may also be a good option for patients who are concerned about paying for a full inpatient rehab program. You won’t be staying at a facility overnight during your PHP. This means that you won’t have to cover services that can make up a significant portion of the costs that are commonly associated with inpatient rehab programs.

Who should avoid a PHP?

PHPs do a tremendous job of helping former addicts work towards a sober life. But they may not be a good option for you if you’re someone who is looking for lots of structure during this phase of your recovery. PHPs do provide lots of structure during the day but you will be left to your own devices at night. This can present some patients with problems.

Additionally, you shouldn’t sign up for a PHP unless you’ve already completed your detox. You’ll want to have already made it through the most challenging phase of your withdrawal symptoms and cravings before you give yourself the freedom to spend nights at home.

Finally, a partial hospitalization program may not be the right choice if you live in a home with other drug or alcohol users or people who may tempt you to relapse.

What should I expect during my PHP?

A successful partial hospitalization program will give you the opportunity to explore and address the root causes of your addiction. This is typically done through therapy sessions, which take place in both individual and group settings.

Therapy will also help you develop new strategies for coping with the problems that have led you to abuse drugs or alcohol in the past. This work will prepare you to live the kind of life that you envision yourself once you complete the program.

Most PHPs will ask you to spend somewhere between 20-30 hours a week at a treatment center. The exact amount of time that you spend there will vary based on where you’re at in your recovery and the PHP that you sign up for.

How do PHPs work at The Still Water Wellness Group?

The Still Water Wellness Group builds upon the standard PHP to create an even more effective way for people to recover from substance abuse. Holistic healing methodologies are one of the ways that we do this.

For example, when you sign up for a PHP with the Still Water Wellness Group, you’ll get to participate in regular outdoor activities. These include nature hikes, group outdoor therapy sessions, and walks along the beach. Treatments like these allow you to connect with other patients who are going through a similar process and to take advantage of the healing powers of nature.

We also offer all of our patients the opportunity to participate in yoga classes and to work with our on-site nutritionist. Your nutritionist will be able to assess your diet and make recommendations based on the foods that will support your recovery the most.

Of course, our PHPs also rely heavily on therapy. You’ll get to work with some of the most skilled, experienced physicians in the Southern California area.

They’ve spent a lifetime studying addiction and will be able to offer you personalized advice throughout the duration of your recovery process. This type of individualization is key to what makes PHPs at the Still Water Wellness Group such an effective way to heal.
