Frequetly Asked Questions

Compassion Behavioral Health offers numerous levels of care for both mental health and substance use disorders. A PHP is the next level of care following residential treatment and preceding intensive outpatient treatment. If you are partaking in our inpatient program, we will recommend PHP next.

All treatment programs at Compassion Behavioral Health are tailored to your individual needs. A PHP is flexible and accommodating, providing treatment most days of the week, up to 6 hours a day. Once you have completed your sessions for the day, you can return home or to your sober living environment.

Many people are surprised to learn that extending care beyond inpatient programs can significantly ease the journey to sobriety. Transitioning back to daily life doesn’t require continuous residential care. A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) allows you to begin integrating into your regular routine while still receiving essential medical and therapeutic support.

PHP is ideal for those needing immediate help for addiction or mental health issues but have family obligations. It offers a structured environment, and if progress isn’t as expected, a shift to inpatient care might be necessary. However, as improvements are made and sobriety is maintained, you can gradually transition to less intensive programs like Intensive Outpatient or Standard Outpatient, continuing to benefit from ongoing support.

Even though a PHP has many benefits to offer, we do believe that some people do better in this program than others. When you contact our admissions department, our team can help determine if you or a loved one is the right fit for this level of care.

In general, we recommend a PHP for recovering addictions who:

  • Require close medical supervision. If you have a dual diagnosis, it can take time to get you on the right combination of prescription medications. A PHP ensures you receive medical supervision when you’re most vulnerable.
  • Have stable housing and transportation. You’ll need to travel to and from your therapy sessions on a regular basis. To make it to your sessions on time, it’s important to have a stable home life and transportation. Depending on proximity, Compassion Behavioral Health can assist with transportation.
  • Need more support than outpatient care. Outpatient programs are best for people who need extra support as they transition back home. If you’re new to recovery, it’s best to start with a higher level of care.
  • Have a strong support system at home. Because you’ll be living at home, it’s important to have a strong support network that you can count on. If you don’t, you may have to consider sober housing as an alternative.

The PHP program at Compassion Behavioral Health provides access to all of our therapeutic services. The majority of your time will be spent in individual and group therapy as you learn more about your addiction, the motivations that led you to start abusing substances and how to deal with stressful situations.

Aside from individual and group therapy, here are some other services that will be available to you during your time in a PHP:

  • Relapse prevention therapy. Relapse is a process, not a single event. Learn how to recognize the stages of relapse and the best ways to cope with stressful situations.
  • EMDR therapy. This therapy uses various eye movements to process traumatic memories. We recommend this therapy to those with PTSD, as well as those who have painful memories or unresolved trauma.
  • Meditation and yoga. Our program has certified yoga instructors who will help you develop an awareness of your body. We also want you to build confidence using meditation and yoga as coping mechanisms.
  • Medication education. Many clients who partake in a PHP have an underlying mental illness. As part of our PHP, we will find the right combination of medications to treat your symptoms and lower your risk for relapse.
  • Nutrition and life skills. We also believe in the importance of nutrition and life skills. Taking care of your mind, body and spirit protects you from relapse and encourages a healthy lifestyle.

And many more….

About Partial Hospitalization

Compassion Behavioral Health offers a wide range of treatment programs to help those who are dealing with substance abuse and mental health problems. Our partial hospitalization program, or PHP, is one of them. 

What Is Partial Hospitalization? 

Partial hospitalization, often referred to as a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), is a type of mental health and substance abuse treatment program that provides an intensive level of care while beginning to reintegrate into society after inpatient care or provide an extra level of structure and support if mental health and substance use issues have created barriers and obstacles to your everyday life. It serves as a middle ground between inpatient hospitalization and outpatient therapy. 

Who Might Need Partial Hospitalization? 

Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs) are suitable for a range of individuals who require more intensive treatment than what traditional outpatient care offers but do not need around-the-clock supervision provided by inpatient hospitalization. 

Situations where people need partial hospitalization typically include:  

  • Inpatient care: Individuals transitioning from inpatient hospitalization who still require structured therapy but are stable enough not to need 24-hour supervision. 
  • Intensive treatment: Those who find that regular outpatient therapy isn’t sufficiently addressing their needs and require a more intensive level of care. 
  • Structured support: Individuals who are medically and psychiatrically stable but need the structure and intensity of a daily therapeutic program to prevent relapse or worsening of their condition.  
  • Co-occuring dual diagnosis conditions: Those with co-occurring mental health, substance use and physical health concerns may benefit from the comprehensive and integrated approach of PHPs.  
  • Complex or chronic mental health conditions: Individuals with complex or chronic conditions like severe depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, psychosis or eating disorders, who need more intensive treatment interventions. 
  • Supportive home environment: This is ideal for individuals who may or may not have strong family support but are seeking intensive therapy and daytime support. In PHP programs, the focus is often on enhancing external support systems with therapeutic guidance.

What Services Are Included In Your PHP Program? 

At Compassion Behavioral Health, our partial hospitalization program (PHP) grants you full access to our extensive range of therapeutic services.  A significant part of your program will involve both individual and group therapy sessions. In these sessions, you’ll explore and understand your addiction and mental health challenges, uncover the factors that led to your substance abuse or mental health challenges. You will also master strategies to handle stress and set up a foundation for long-term recovery and well-being. 

Beyond individual and group therapy, our PHP includes several other services designed to support your recovery journey: 

  • Relapse prevention therapy: Understanding that relapse is a process rather than a singular event, we provide you with skills to recognize relapse stages and effective coping mechanisms for stress. 
  • EMDR therapy: Used for processing traumatic memories, this therapy involves specific eye movements and is particularly beneficial for those with PTSD or unresolved traumatic experiences. 
  • Medication education and medication management: Our PHP program provides comprehensive medication education, not only for those with underlying mental health issues but also for managing long-term symptoms of substance use. We focus on identifying the most effective medication strategies to treat symptoms and minimize the risk of relapses. 
  • Nutrition and life skills: We emphasize the importance of nutrition and life skills in maintaining a healthy mind, body, and spirit, which are essential in protecting against relapse and promoting a healthy lifestyle.
