Partial Hospitalization: Day & Night Addiction Treatment
We offer a safe and healthy environment for recovery.
Relapse is the fearsome ghost that often plagues us on the road to recovery. Sometimes it feels like every step, every forward motion, the threat of relapse is right behind us, threatening to draw us in and tear us down. Even years into recovery, after a full treatment program, after new habits have been developed, the possibility of relapse may still appear. This is an issue everyone must deal with in the journey of recovery.
Partial hospitalization is often a good option for those coming out of a treatment program but still need a facility’s security. Partial hospitalization is also similar in some ways to Extended Care, though different. It is not a failure or a shameful thing to enter into a partial hospitalization or extended care program—rather, it can be a sign of wisdom. Wisdom knows what decision is going to lead to the best outcomes. Entering back into the “real world” before you are ready may lead to quick relapse, a return to the drug abuse, or several other difficulties; if more treatment is needed to be ready, knowing this and moving forward with this choice is the wisest decision you can make.
Additionally, partial hospitalization may be a good option for those whose substance abuse is a problem, but not to the level of going into an inpatient facility full-time. Partial hospitalization may provide a possibility of beginning treatment while allowing patients to address life, work, and school responsibilities if needed.
The Audience for Partial Hospitalization Addiction Treatment
Partial Hospitalization may not always be necessary or the best place to begin or end treatment. There are a few factors that may help indicate whether or not extended care is the right decision. Some of the important factors include the following:
- Severe risk of withdrawal symptoms
- Concurrent medical conditions
- Concurrent mental health issues
- Lack of success in shorter or outpatient addiction care programs
- Unstable or unhealthy home environment
- Need for more structure than extended care programs
The point of partial hospitalization is not to keep patients locked away or held back from life. The goal is protection. Building up the strength and resistance to being fully immersed back into the world with all its temptations and difficulties is not easy. Partial hospitalization provides additional stability and support while patients are growing and learning.
Additionally, none of the above conditions could be true, and it might still be a good idea to undertake partial hospitalization. Sometimes, individuals are just not mentally prepared to be out on their own again. It is not a weakness or a problem to continue treatment through partial hospitalization as an extra layer of preparation and security before facing the world again. In cases where a patient begins with partial hospitalization, this may be a good starting place to allow for the added element of structure and care while maintaining some flexibility to address outside concerns.
The length that treatment takes can vary for different individuals, but research has shown that the best outcomes are strongly connected to the patient’s right amount of time in treatment. For instance, when it comes to opioid-addicted individuals, the minimum amount of time needed is a year, and many individuals see even better results from multiple years of treatment. While this can seem intimidating, there are many ways in which treatment and care can be adjusted to your needs as time goes on. And, of course, good treatment, even if it takes a while, is significantly better than the consequences of not receiving treatment and remaining in a dangerous cycle of addiction.
Partial Hospitalization Rehab Program
As we call it here, at Cycles of Change Recovery, Partial Hospitalization, or Day and Night Treatment Program is an intensive, long-term outpatient relapse prevention program. The Day and Night Treatment Program, which is located at our Palmdale, California facility, provides an opportunity to begin adjusting to life outside the treatment center by allowing patients to go home each night and then return each day to receive the full support of our counselors and the full benefits of our recovery programs during the day.
Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is designed to minimize disruptions to the current routines of patients. There are opportunities to receive support from family and friends, staff, and other rehab facility patients. The long-term rehabilitation center’s level of care will retain the structure, supervision, and support you need to help you stay on track while transitioning into a life without drugs or alcohol. By returning home at night, you will be able to practice the skills you have learned; this provides concrete opportunities to apply lessons learned in the facility.
Some of the features of the Partial Hospitalization Program include the following:
- Relapse prevention workshops
- Essential life skills coaching
- Regular drug and alcohol testing
- Structure and security
- Individual and group therapy
Partial Hospitalization and Extended Care Treatment
Partial Hospitalization and Extended Care Addiction Treatment are very similar but a bit different. The primary difference is the location of the treatment. Partial hospitalization occurs in a treatment facility, while extended care usually occurs in a recovery home of some sort. Both programs are long-term, outpatient, and less intense than full-time inpatient treatment. However, the placement of patients within a facility in the Partial Hospitalization Program allows for more comprehensive coverage of the patient and increased supervision and medical support. The further details of the best option are usually most fully addressed by speaking with one of our counselors. This allows us to help you find the route most suited to your particular situation.
