What is PHP or Partial Hospitalization?

Partial Hospitalization, also known as PHP, is a type of program used to treat mental illness and substance abuse. In partial hospitalization, the patient continues to reside at home but commutes to a treatment center up to seven days a week. Partial hospitalization focuses on the overall treatment of the individual and is intended to avert or reduce in-patient hospitalization.

Partial Hospitalization is a structured mental health treatment program that runs for several hours each day, three to five days per week. Clients participate in the scheduled treatment sessions during the day and return home at night.  This program is a step down from 24-hour care in a psychiatric hospital setting (inpatient treatment). It can also be used to prevent the need for an inpatient hospital stay.

PHP provides a structured program of outpatient psychiatric services as an alternative to inpatient psychiatric care. It’s more intense than the care you get in a doctor’s or therapist’s office. You get this treatment during the day, and you don’t have to stay overnight. Medicare helps cover partial hospitalization services you get through a hospital outpatient department or community mental health center.

This allows for structure and access to resources that can help an individual overcome their addiction and begin or continue on their sobriety journey. Participants have a chance to spend time with their families.

When PHP is Needed

Here are some Factors of PHP treatment that can indicate it’s a good option:

  • You do not experience dangerous withdrawal symptoms (e.g., delirium tremens)
  • It would help if you had some flexibility and can’t commit to a full-time inpatient treatment facility
  • You (or a loved one) struggle with substance abuse but also have a supportive community or home environment
  • Self-regulate prescription medications if necessary
  • You are ambulatory and able to transport yourself to and from treatment
  • You are willing and able to work intensively in both group therapy and individual therapy sessions

Criteria for PHP Clients

When you decide to seek treatment for a mental health condition, it can be difficult to navigate the different levels of care. Generally, the first step is to receive a formal evaluation from a mental health professional; the evaluation will help determine which program is right for you or your loved one. PHP is designed for individuals who meet the following criteria:

  • Difficulty functioning at work, school, or other occupations
  • Not at risk of harming self or others

What to Expect from PHP Treatment

A typical day consists of individual and group therapy, psychoeducation, skill-building practice, and periodic evaluations. A licensed mental health professional conducts all of these. If medication is needed, you will meet with a staff psychiatrist for medication management. There may also be family therapy sessions in the program. Building a support system is important for recovery, so many programs will involve a client’s family in the treatment plan.

Scheduling and programming depend on the treatment facility, but most centers use a variety of therapeutic techniques. From traditional therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to alternative methods like trauma-sensitive yoga, there are many different treatment options available.

If you are considering PHP for your child, missed schooling is a major concern. Most treatment providers recognize this and offer schooling in the program so that teens don’t fall behind in their education.

How Long Does Partial Hospitalization Last?

Partial Hospitalization is designed for short-term treatment. The goal is to help you improve enough to be transferred to a lower level of care like outpatient or intensive outpatient treatment. The exact length of stay depends on your personal progress. You could spend several months or a few weeks in the program.

It’s important to keep in mind that each person’s recovery journey is unique. You should focus on reaching your treatment goals rather than focusing on a specific length of stay.
