It’s a common misconception that a partial hospitalization program is less intensive or less effective for recovery. However, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. It allows people struggling with substance abuse problems to focus on healing in a number of different settings.

A Partial Hospitalization Program Gives You Daytime Hours to Focus on Getting Well

Substance abuse is an insidious disease that finds its way into all aspects of life. As a result, it requires an immersion approach to therapy in order to undo its damage. Day rehab, which is often the model of a partial hospitalization program, is an effective way of focusing your daytime hours on healing while ensuring that you meet your obligations.

Parents, executives, and those who with supportive home environments thrive in this setting. Since they have time to take care of their responsibilities later on, they can focus on therapy and learn new coping skills. This program ensures that you receive the same clinical modalities access that participants in a day residential treatment setting enjoy. The only difference is that you head home at night while they return to sober living homes.

What to Expect During Treatment

The partial hospitalization program at Square Medical Group provides a solid eight hours of clinical care during the day. Examples include:

  • Mental health treatment and behavioral therapy with skilled therapists who help you think through behavior patterns
  • Assessment by an on-site psychiatrist to ensure that you receive dual diagnosis treatment if necessary
  • Group therapy that helps with building self-esteem and self-worth while also assisting with peer group relationship formation
  • Opportunities for self-discovery through various modalities that challenge and encourage you

Another important aspect of the treatment is substantial family involvement as appropriate. Because those living with you will play instrumental roles in your recovery, they must know how to pitch in. Doing so is possible with family-centered therapy groups as well as one-on-one settings. If you previously isolated yourself from family members, this setup is a good method for re-establishing contact.

You also have the opportunity to learn more about the process of addiction to understand what’s happening to you. Far too often, individuals believe that substance abuse defines them, which is incorrect. Another set of treatments includes real-life situations that you learn to handle with coping strategies. The goal is to give you hands-on opportunities to try out what you’ve learned in therapy.

This approach gives you and edge because it shows you where there’s still room for growth. It also provides you with the self-confidence that comes from recognizing stressors and dealing with them. The goal is to engage in daily living tasks without the need to use. This process also trains you how to go about your day without incorporating the substance you abused in the past.
