What is Partial Hospitalization?
Landmark Recovery’s partial hospitalization program (PHP) is ideal for patients who do not require stabilization for withdrawal and who require a transitional program that can provide support in integrating back into their respective community. Compared to intensive outpatient rehab, partial hospitalization requires more visits and sessions per week. The commitment is similar to that of inpatient rehab, but without the requirement to stay in a drug or alcohol treatment facility. Patients in partial hospitalization typically choose their own housing, but some may qualify for boarding at a rehab facility.
Landmark Recovery’s program offers roughly comparable daily scheduling of group therapy and extracurricular activities to our Residential Treatment Program. However, patients on the partial hospitalization level of care receive just one individual therapy session per week, compared to two on the residential level of care.
Patients in the PHP could stay in their home, a sober living house or in our facility, depending on their diagnosis, history and possible need for additional structure due to a compromised recovery environment. This includes an assessment of a patient’s need for increased motivational interventions, or moderate to severe risk of relapse. A healthcare provider will conduct a physical and mental examination of patients prior to being admitted into the program. In order for a patient to be admitted into our PHP, they must consent to treatment.
