Why Choose a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)?

When seeking addiction treatment, there are many options that can help you at multiple stages of your recovery. Some programs, like detox, are helpful for the initial phase of recovery. However, once you have completed detox and successfully combated withdrawal symptoms — what comes next? A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is an option that many facilities offer for those continuing the next steps in their recovery journey.

What Is a PHP?

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are a combination of intensive inpatient services with some of the conveniences of outpatient programs. In other words, the commitment and intensity of the program are somewhere between going to a therapist’s office once a week and remaining in a facility both night and day. While PHP is technically considered an outpatient level of service (meaning that you are not residing in the same place you receive care), PHP usually requires a full-time commitment for a few weeks or months.

PHP has a daily schedule of recovery activities and life skills classes (some refer to PHP as a “day program”). Many PHP offer group therapy and individual therapy sessions within the schedule. Clients in a PHP share classes and sessions with their peers and frequently enjoy the fellowship and camaraderie.

Specific Aspects of PHP

Depending upon the program, you might encounter varying activities and sessions. Some programs might meet for a few days each week for only a half-day, where others meet five days per week for seven to eight hours per day. Choosing the right PHP for you depends upon your needs in recovery and your availability to participate. 

PHP at Cornerstone Healing Center

Cornerstone Healing Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, offers two different tracks for their Partial Hospitalization Program. The Ready to Launch program is designed to help young adults overcome addiction and begin planning for their futures. Along with the usual mental health and addiction services provided during treatment, Ready to Launch specifically addresses some critical life skills needed by young adults, such as:

  • Workplace Entry Preparation:
    • This program is for young adults struggling with addiction who might feel behind others their age due to losing time from active addiction and treatment.
    • Get a jump-start on creating the career of your dreams while also learning recovery skills.
    • This program can prepare you for various aspects of building a career, such as making a resume and cover letter, entering or finishing school, searching for jobs, and preparing for interviews.

  • Credit Repair:
    • Beginning life with debt and poor credit can hinder you from purchasing a car or finding housing.
    • Cornerstone’s PHP can help you learn the skills needed to fix and maintain your credit.

  • Relationship Building:
    • Young adults in early recovery might be seeking romantic partners or friendships while maintaining sobriety.
    • Due to the prevalence of social drinking and drug use in young adults, those in recovery might fear isolation due to recovery.
    • During relationship-building sessions, young adults learn how to build and maintain healthy relationships without sacrificing their sobriety.

For those already invested in their careers, Cornerstone’s Professional PHP can help you get back to the profession that might have been disrupted due to active addiction. This PHP focuses on helping those who had already established themselves as successful adults with careers, families, or spouses. The Professional program can help you maintain your current career path if you have taken a break from work to focus on recovery. This program can also help you change careers, re-enter the workforce, and repair relationships with loved ones.

The Professional program also teaches essential life skills needed to maintain a happy and healthy household, manage triggers, cultivate a healthy lifestyle, and become more attentive to partners and loved ones. This program is designed to get you back on track with the life you had before active addiction and treatment. The Professional PHP will also help you get back to that life in a much better place to continue pursuing your dreams without allowing addiction to get in the way.

Do I Need a PHP?

Depending upon your needs in recovery and your current stage of treatment, a PHP might be the next right step for you. While PHP will be time-intensive in the short term, you will learn crucial life skills while also continuing through the next phase of your treatment. For those wanting to learn how to maintain sobriety, work on underlying disorders, and find direction for life beyond treatment, a PHP may be a worthwhile experience on your continued journey in recovery! 

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) can offer an array of benefits to help you get back on track in a life disrupted by addiction and learn the skills needed to live the life of your dreams. Many PHPs offer life skills courses, peer support, therapy, and other holistic activities to help you in your next treatment phase. Some programs, like Cornerstone Healing Center in Scottsdale, AZ, offer PHP with two tracks depending upon a person’s career development during their treatment. Our Ready to Launch program can help adults beginning careers and families following addiction in early life. The Professional PHP benefits adults who are already working on their careers or families and might need to learn skills on maintaining and repairing these critical life areas. We can meet you where you are in life to find the best treatment options for your addiction recovery.
