Partial Hospitalization Therapy Treatments & Modalities

partial hospitalization therapy session

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that aims to identify and modify negative thought patterns that affect our behavior and emotions. The therapy operates on the idea that changing our unhelpful thinking can bring about positive changes in our behavior and emotional well-being. CBT is a goal-oriented approach that is widely used to treat various mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, and substance use disorders. It equips individuals with coping strategies to deal with challenging situations.1

cognitive behavioral therapy session

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that focuses on the psychosocial aspects of treatment. The core principle of DBT is the integration of opposite ideas. DBT uses acceptance and change strategies to help individuals manage their emotions, improve their relationships, and live more mindfully. DBT is particularly effective in treating personality disorders like borderline personality disorder and conditions involving significant emotional dysregulation.2

residential drug rehab therapy

Individual addiction therapy involves private sessions between a client and a therapist. The focus is on identifying the underlying issues and behaviors that contribute to substance use. This personalized approach allows individuals to explore their emotions, triggers, and past experiences that influence their addiction. The result is the development of customized strategies for coping and recovery. Individual therapy is a fundamental aspect of effective addiction treatment programs.

FAQs About Our Partial Hospitalization Program

Get answers to the most commonly asked questions about our drug and alcohol treatment.

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and how does it differ from inpatient rehab?

A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a rehabilitation program that provides structured care similar to residential (inpatient) rehab.

However, unlike inpatient rehab, PHP allows clients to return home at the end of the day instead of residing at the facility 24/7.

The program provides intensive treatment for drug and alcohol addiction during the day, usually involving several hours of therapy five days a week, without an overnight stay.

This structure benefits individuals who require significant support and treatment but have a stable home environment and can manage being at home during evenings and weekends.

PHP is a critical step between complete inpatient care and less intensive models, such as outpatient treatment, offering a balanced approach that supports recovery while maintaining some personal freedoms.3

What types of therapies and treatments are included in the PHP at Cornerstone Healing Center?

At Cornerstone Healing Center, our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) incorporates a wide array of therapies and treatments designed to address the multifaceted nature of drug and alcohol addiction:

Our PHP includes cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), which help clients modify negative thought patterns and manage emotions and relationships effectively. We also utilize motivational interviewing to enhance motivation toward recovery. The program is enriched with individual and group therapy sessions. It offers specialized tracks like the “Ready to Launch” and the “Professionals Track,” tailored to accommodate individuals with specific professional and personal obligations. Additionally, holistic approaches such as art and music therapy, fitness therapy, and nutrition classes are integrated to support overall well-being.

How effective is the Partial Hospitalization Program in treating drug and alcohol addiction?

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a proven treatment option for individuals struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.

PHPs provide a structured environment similar to inpatient care but allow patients to maintain some aspects of their daily lives.

Research shows that PHPs are particularly effective for patients who require intensive treatment but do not need 24-hour supervision.

The therapies offered in PHP, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and motivational interviewing, have been shown to reduce substance use and improve patient outcomes significantly.

A study in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment found that patients participating in PHPs exhibited improved psychological and social functioning, suggesting that PHP can be a vital component of the continuum of care for substance abuse treatment (Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment, 2020).4

This level of care is especially beneficial for those with a supportive home environment and a solid motivation to recover, providing the necessary support while reintegrating into everyday life.

Does insurance cover the cost of the Partial Hospitalization Program?

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) coverage may differ depending on your specific insurance plan.

Cornerstone proudly accepts a wide range of insurance providers to ensure our services are available to as many people as possible.

It’s worth noting that many insurance plans cover PHP since it is a recognized and effective treatment for drug and alcohol addiction.

We encourage potential clients to contact us for free, confidential insurance verification.

Our team can provide a clear breakdown of your benefits and help you understand the available coverage options for our PHP program.

This process aims to eliminate any financial barriers to accessing the necessary care and support to aid in your recovery.

What kind of aftercare and ongoing support does Cornerstone offer after completing the PHP?

After completing the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) at Cornerstone Healing Center, clients receive a customized aftercare plan to provide continued support on their recovery journey.

This plan is tailored to each individual’s unique needs.

Depending on their progress and requirements, clients may transition to an Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program or our standard Outpatient Treatment Program.

It’s important to remember that everyone’s post-treatment path is different, and what works for one person may not work for another.

Our aftercare support includes individual therapy sessions, access to group therapy, and participation in wellness activities that reinforce the principles of recovery.

Additionally, our vibrant alumni network offers regular meetings, workshops, and social gatherings, creating a community of mutual support and belonging essential for long-term sobriety and overall health.

This facility is different from any other rehab that I have been to. I have had many failed attempts at getting and staying sober since I was 16. Mostly due to a majority of the treatment centers that I had went to not having much help with aftercare. They would get you clean for however long the stay was and then release you with no tools or foundation to build on. Cornerstone immersed me in the 12 step recovery program. The PHP groups were extremely therapeutic for me. They took me to Recovery meetings every day of the week. They have extremely nice houses to go back to while you’re not at the clinic. Most importantly, they set me up with an aftercare plan that put me on a path to success. Before I left they made sure that I was set up with a sober living, a job, and also made sure that I had made good progress in my 12 steps. After I got out I was sent to IOP, and every week they have a navigator who makes sure that you are doing well and helps you with any obstacles you may be facing. All of the staff truly cares about every individual who comes through this place. Unlike a lot of treatment centers, cornerstone is not in it for the money. Thanks to them I have been able to maintain long term sobriety. I am the happiest I have been in my entire life. I will forever have gratitude for cornerstone and to all of the staff that helped me, and continues to help on my recovery journey.

I watched my loved one struggle with an addiction to alcohol for over fifteen years. In 2022 he was at the worse I had ever seen. I suggested a multitude of things to quit, however, I knew that he needed help and was convinced that this was not going to end well. I had seen the program of recovery outlined at Cornerstone and convinced my loved one to make the 1,800-mile drive across the country. It saved his life. I hardly recognize this man today. From hustling me to pay for "just one more night" at a hotel, to having his own apartment in a year is a miracle. Cornerstone provided him a safe place and provided every tool possible including inpatient treatment, A.A., therapy and counseling, IOP and helped with his transition into the mainstream of life. I’ll be forever grateful.

this place saved my life 100%. the whole staff genuinely cared about me and were only trying to help me grow. i have confidence again and goals to achieve. coming from someone who was very suicidal and a bad alcoholic before treatment, i’ve completely done a 180°. i loved my house managers lacey and jazz who were both extremely important to my recovery. my primary therapist Lori was such a sweetheart and i could tell she genuinely cared about my life and wanted to help in any way she could. i feel like i’ve finally found my place in this world and most importantly myself and that’s all thanks to God and Cornerstone.
