Partial Hospitalization

in Treatment

 In the recovery world of drug and alcohol treatment, there are two major program types: outpatient, inpatientprograms and residential programs.
Then there is Partial hospitalization treatment programs that fall somewhere in between the all other programs.

What is It?
Think of Partial hospitalization as a more intense type of outpatient program. Individuals in these programs receive their treatment during the daytime, but then return home in the evening. Partial hospitalization is recommended for those individuals with a more serious level of drug addiction, but who want to have the benefits of outpatient-style treatment.
 A word of caution, If housing is provided for you, it is “not” Partial hospitalization in many states. Make sure the facility has the proper licenses and credentials.

What can you expect with partial hospitalization?
Partial hospitalization programs require individuals to attend regular counseling and education sessions, many of which can run up 7 or 8 hours per day. Often times the treatment focuses on subject matter such as transition into a drug-free life, regaining responsibility, and the formation of new healthy habits. During partial hospitalization, the individual can expect to take part in both individual and group drug counseling.

Who can be treated with partial hospitalization?
Partial hospitalization treats those suffering from addiction to alcohol or drugs such as heroin, crystal meth, cocaine, marijuana, painkillers or other prescription medications. These treatment programs are for anyone who comes to grips with the fact that they have a problem, which if not corrected, will have permanent, negative effects on their life. Partial hospitalization programs are not generally divided into men’s or women’s programs; however there are specialized facilities that deal exclusively with adolescent drug programs, or dual diagnosis patients (those who have co-occurring mental illness and addiction).

The goal of partial hospitalization
Helping the individual engages in a serious drug rehab treatment program, while still staying close to home and family, is the goal of every partial hospitalization program. Partial hospitalization is suited to handle more serious levels of drug addiction, as the counseling programs take more of the day and meet more often.

The cost of the treatment
Less expensive than most residential treatment programs, partial hospitalization is affordable to many and may even be covered by a health insurance plan. Individuals are urged to check with their insurance carrier before selecting a program.

The challenges of partial hospitalization
Partial hospitalization shares many of the same features as outpatient drug rehab, both positive and negative. Both methods of drug rehab leave the individual in their current environment – which may include drug-taking friends, dealers or other potential pitfalls on the road to recovery. One of the prime advantages of residential drug treatment is that it takes the individual out of this environment, and into a more remote location where it is easier to focus on the primary goal of beating the addiction. Still, if the individual prefers to sleep at home, can handle the distractions, or is simply unable to afford residential care, partial hospitalization is a solid option.
