The process of recovery from drug addiction is not easy. The individual will need to go through intensive therapy and medication due to the withdrawal symptoms. In some instances, depending on the severity of the addiction, a patient will require inpatient treatment. But, the procedure does not end when the patient leaves the hospital. He/She will continue to receive some form of therapy without requiring 24-hour supervision.
Partial hospitalization program or PHP is there for great for an individual who is transitioning from in-house treatment to outpatient treatment. The patient will receive support and structure, and in some instances, medication. He or she will also have the full support of doctors, psychiatrists, and therapists to help them through the recovery process.
Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) were started to help anyone struggling with mental illness or substance abuse. It involved intensive levels of psychiatric care given to those living in the community as well as those who can return home after a full day of treatment. There are many options available for the patient, but the whole idea is to prevent anyone who is going through a recovery process from having to stay in a hospital.

Partial day hospitalization is a highly structured program that will provide care for addiction treatment while offering medical insights. It is a good option for anyone who has had to stay in hospital due to substance abuse but is now leaving. It, therefore, becomes the step between the outpatient programs and inpatient treatment.
The patient will receive medical detox if there is a possibility that the withdrawal symptoms could be life-threatening. In the typical scenario, anyone who is in the process of addiction treatment will suffer from withdrawal symptoms, but they are rarely fatal. With 24-hour medical monitoring, the caregivers can prevent seizures and severe side effects like heart attacks.
Partial treatment is excellent for any individual who is undertaking a tapering regimen due to the intensive therapy sessions that may last several weeks. The sessions aim at changing behavior so that the patient does not relapse.
Understanding how treatment works can be confusing. Warner Park Recovery Center wants to make things easy. We offer partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, outpatient, and individual therapy services at our beautiful location at the Warner Center in Woodland Hills, CA.
Warner Park partial hospitalization offers a transitional phase of treatment. We bridge the gap between outpatient and inpatient stages of treatment for recovering addicts. You will get therapeutic support that you would receive if you are impatient. We realize the importance of this support during the transition, and we work towards giving you a higher level of autonomy during the recovery.
One thing that makes the PHP program very popular is that with proper evaluation, we will sometimes find that a patient does not need residential treatment. Such patients, therefore, end up saving quite a bit of money; money that would have gone into unnecessary in-house treatment.
We will expect the patient to dedicate at least 5 to 6 hours to treatment every day, 3 to 5 times a week. The client will meet with an individual therapist three to four times every week, and attend group therapy Sessions 10 -12 times every week. The patient will also have sessions with a psychiatrist every week, for evaluation, and medication if they need it. Working with the client, we evaluate what is the best treatment option and advise on the time investment.
One of the most significant challenges many recovering addicts face once they leave the hospital is the sudden independence. From 24/7 monitoring, you now have to depend solely on your willpower to avoid Relapse or regression. PHP has been a great success when it comes to helping patients avoid a relapse.
We also work with patients who may not qualify or lack time for residential treatment. We, therefore, allow them to begin the treatment process through the PHP program. We do, however, encourage our patients to go through a period of in-house treatment but, we can work with and achieve great success even with those who come to us straight away.
We tailor our programs to meet every individual’s unique needs because no two people are entirely alike. We meet our patient’s needs in a flexible environment that they would not get in a residential treatment facility.
Taking steps to overcome addiction is very challenging, and we realize that every patient needs support.
