​​What Is A Partial Hospitalization Program?  

A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is an intensive form of outpatient treatment designed for individuals who require more support than traditional outpatient services can offer but do not need round-the-clock supervision provided by inpatient care. At White Light, our PHP runs for 5 hours per day, allowing clients to engage in a comprehensive treatment regimen while still having the flexibility to live at home or in sober living accommodations. This program includes a variety of therapeutic modalities, access to medical and psychiatric care, and the structure needed for effective recovery, all without the full-time commitment of residential treatment. PHP serves as a critical step down from inpatient care or a step up from less intensive outpatient programs, offering a balanced approach to long-term recovery.

    The Partial Hospitalization Program at White Light is specifically designed for individuals who:

  • Are transitioning from residential treatment and need a structured program to continue their recovery journey.
  • Require more intensive care than traditional outpatient treatment can provide but do not need 24/7 supervision.
  • Seek to maintain their independence by living at home or in a sober living environment while receiving the benefits of a structured treatment program.

Attributes and behaviors indicating the need for PHP include:

Understanding IOP and PHP in Addiction Treatment  

When exploring addiction treatment options, Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) are two critical components offering different levels of care. Here’s a brief overview to understand their differences:

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) provide a structured treatment environment that doesn’t require full-time commitment, allowing individuals to continue with their daily lives, such as work or school. Typically, IOPs require participation for a few hours per day, several days a week. The focus is on group therapy, although individual counseling may also be included, alongside support for substance abuse and mental health issues.

Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP), on the other hand, offer a more intensive level of care without the need for overnight stays. PHPs generally require participation for the majority of the day, five to seven days a week, providing a structured treatment environment similar to inpatient care but with the flexibility to return home at night. PHPs include comprehensive services such as medical monitoring, individual and group therapy, and support for co-occurring disorders.

The key difference lies in the intensity and time commitment required: PHPs are more intensive and are best suited for individuals who need more support than IOPs can provide but do not require 24/7 supervision. IOPs offer flexibility and are ideal for those transitioning from residential treatment or those with less severe addictions. Both programs aim to provide the tools and support needed for long-term recovery, with the choice between them depending on the individual’s specific needs and stage of recovery.

Benefits of A Partial Hospitalization Program In Columbus, Ohio  

    Choosing our PHP offers several key benefits:

  • Flexibility: The program allows clients to engage in intensive treatment during the day while maintaining the ability to live at home or in a sober living environment.
  • Continuity of Care: PHP serves as a step-down from residential treatment or a step-up from outpatient care, providing a seamless continuum of support tailored to each stage of recovery.
  • Comprehensive Support: Despite the less restrictive setting, clients receive a high level of care and support, including medical monitoring, psychiatric services, and access to holistic therapies.
