One in seven Americans will face substance addiction in their lifetime, but only 10 percent of those affected will get the help they need to create a sober life. Despite the overwhelming number of people who will battle substance use disorder, drug specialists know there are no two patients who can recover and heal from the exact same program. From 12-step programs and holistic treatments to inpatient services and partial hospitalization programs, finding what works for each patient is paramount to their success.
Depending on a patient’s environment and substance dependency, a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) could offer a number of benefits. A PHP incorporates the freedom of outpatient services with the intensity of inpatient care, creating a personalized plan for each patient.
What Is Partial Hospitalization Program?
The main objective of a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is to equip each patient with the skills they need to overcome a substance use problem. In 2015, 66.7 million people in the United States reported binge drinking in the past month. And a staggering 27.1 million people were current users of illicit drugs or misused prescription drugs. No matter the substance, being able to recognize, treat, and support each patient in an effective way is the mission of each drug specialist at Soul Surgery Rehabilitation.
Our Scottsdale, Arizona PHP is an intense, comprehensive treatment program that is suggested for those ready to take their first step out of inpatient hospitalization. Partial hospitalization is one step below an intense inpatient drug recovery program. It’s often the case that patients are referred to PHP care when they have a dual diagnosis. This treatment is also encouraged if they are battling acute psychiatric symptoms that can be challenging to manage completely on their own but that doesn’t require 24/7 care. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.2 million U.S. adults experienced both mental illness and a substance use disorder in 2018. For these patients, Partial Hospitalization Program addiction treatment can be the difference between ongoing addiction battles and creating a healthy, sober life.
Patients in PHP are able to live at home, but they spend up to 8 hours a day, three to five days a week at the treatment facility. Experienced drug and rehabilitation specialists are a pertinent component to an effective PHP treatment strategy. The professionals at Soul Surgery take the time to get to know each patient and build a personalized treatment plan designed for long-term success. The treatment received during the partial hospitalization allows a patient to understand their disease, adjust to the medication, develop coping skills, and create goals for their future. The hospitalization portion of the treatment is designed to support the patient through substance use withdrawals and mental health issues. The ultimate goal is to have them return to their home with the ability to lead a clean and fulfilling life.
Benefits of Partial Hospitalization Program in Addiction Treatment
Having the support of a professional treatment facility most days a week while also learning how to manage your new way of life at home can be challenging. For those who complete the Soul Surgery PHP, you begin to understand emotions, reduce anxiety and stress, and have a more adaptable personality when it comes to life changes. The four primary benefits of a partial hospitalization treatment program include:
1. Slow, safe transition from inpatient care
For a dual diagnosis patient, going directly from inpatient care where support is offered 24/7 to complete outpatient care can be disastrous. PHP is the transitional phase that allows patients ongoing support while also offering small portions of independence.
In addition, supplemental services are offered during Soul Surgery’s PHP. Our highly skilled drug specialists incorporate medspa holistic treatment, group therapy, individual therapy, bio sound therapy and more. These additional treatments offer each patient the sober living skills needed to create full-time independent living.
2. More cost-effective treatment option
Inpatient care in Scottsdale, Arizona can be costly, especially when health insurance isn’t available. Partial Hospitalization Program is more cost-effective, allowing you to receive high-quality drug treatment care at about half the cost.
3. PHP builds coping strategies
When patients spend time in their own environment, they have the opportunity to build skills that allow them to cope with mental, physical, and emotional challenges. In addition, holistic drug treatment skills partnered with other treatment strategies can help a patient form new boundaries with friends and loved ones in their lives.
4. Flexible schedule to allow for employment and other commitments
Time away from a drug treatment facility can be productive for each patient. Whether their commitments involve time with family, a job, or taking up a new hobby, the ability to build a life that focuses on goals can help restore self-confidence.
