Partial Hospitalization Program

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) for substance abuse are similar to inpatient programs in treatment, procedures, and methods. However, clients in partial hospitalization programs are able to sleep at their home each night, and these types of addiction treatment programs offer a more flexible schedule.

Generally you will still have a full day of treatment (around 6 hours) throughout the week,  but you have the option of living in alternative housing, or even at home in some cases, if you or your family are local to the area.

One of the benefits of a partial hospitalization program for alcoholism or addiction is that you get close to the same number of hours of treatment during the week as you normally do in residential or inpatient, but have more flexibility in your schedule.

PHP for addiction also tends to be a little less expensive per day, which is helpful if you are a self-pay patient.

It can also make it somewhat easier to get a longer overall length of stay under insurance to make sure you get the help you need. Bear in mind that PHP is not a substitute for inpatient addiction treatment though.

In inpatient treatment, patients remain in a medical facility 24/7 and sleep there. This is a critical point for anyone who requires medical supervision even after hours or even someone who will benefit from limited contact with the outside world in the beginning of their treatment.

Your therapists and clinicians will determine what the most appropriate level of care is for you at any given time, but most patients participate in our PHP as part of their treatment here.
