Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP)
Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are similar to inpatient programs in treatment, procedures, and methods. However, clients in partial hospitalization programs sleep at home each night and do not spend all of their time at the program facility. These types of programs offer a more flexible schedule and give participants a chance to continue living at home, working, or going to school while slowly but steadily rebuilding their personal life. Clients spend a specified amount of time each day at the facility for treatment, typically more than they spend in the outside world, for the duration of the program.
