When it comes to rehabilitation, many only know inpatient and outpatient care. But did you know there’s a middle ground? Partial hospitalization is an effective option for recovery, yet few understand its benefits. In fact, not many understand what it entails.
What is Partial Hospitalization?
Overcoming an alcohol or drug dependence doesn’t follow a routine outline. Every case is different. Someone with intense cravings and unstable home life needs a different treatment from someone with a strong support network. If you’re great at following directions and a schedule, a partial hospitalization treatment program can be ideal.
You will continue to live at home but come to the rehab facility each day. Depending on the intensity of the program, you may be there five to seven days a week. Prepare to spend a full eight to ten hours at the center. However, as your peers settle in for an evening of board games or chatting, you return to your home.
What Goes on During Rehab Treatment?
Just like other program participants, you undergo comprehensive care. Possible modalities include:
- Dual diagnosis treatment for individuals who also require mental health treatment
- Substance abuse counseling that lets you explore dysfunctional patterns in your life and gives you options for change
- Group therapy sessions with an emphasis on team building and self-esteem development
- 12-Step program introduction and meetings, which help with relapse prevention strategies
- Holistic treatments that include nutritional counseling, fitness therapy, and recreational opportunities
A trained staff member customizes the treatments to meet your needs. Since no two people have the same substance abuse issues, it makes sense to focus on individualized treatment.
Advantages of the Program
For starters, it allows you the freedom to return home. There, you can take care of family members or run a business. The flexibility that is part of the experience also appeals to program participants.
You still get to go online, visit recreational facilities, and do all the things you did before. You gain the coping mechanisms you need to find lasting recovery. Moreover, you may step down to an outpatient program later as your recovery progresses.
