South Coast Behavioral Health offers a continuum of care ranging from inpatient to outpatient. Following treatment in medical detox and residential inpatient, clients transition into the partial hospitalization level of care. 

Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) introduces clients to the key aspects of change as they rebuild strong, sober lives rooted in personal growth, passion, and wellness. The added structure helps clients maintain long-term recovery after leaving PHP or our intensive outpatient program (IOP). In addition, attending 12-Step meetings is encouraged during the  PHP level of care. During both phases of our outpatient treatment, guests have the option to return home or reside in a local sober living residence.

What Is Partial Hospitalization Program?

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a form of intensive outpatient treatment for drug and alcohol use disorders. Partial hospitalization programs offer tailored treatments as each client may need different supports or interventions depending on the severity of the addiction. In general, PHP rehab offers intensive outpatient treatment services designed for those who require more support than traditional outpatient services but don’t need the level of care provided by an inpatient facility.

Quality partial hospitalization program offers a wide range of treatment services and intervention methods to meet your individual needs and goals for recovery. Recovery services range from medication management to assist with any lingering withdrawal symptoms to intensive therapy sessions that promote personal growth. 

We are open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.

What Are the Benefits of PHP Treatment
for Substance Abuse?

Partial hospitalization programs offer many benefits that can help people in early recovery gain access to ongoing medical care and clinical services. 

PHP treatment is best suited for clients who complete our residential inpatient program and wish to continue receiving comprehensive and intensive care in an outpatient setting. More specifically, PHP provides more intensive addiction treatment than intensive outpatient services but does not require 24-hour supervision as residential programs do. 

Additionally, a partial hospitalization program for substance abuse also provides case management services that ensure clients have access to all necessary supports during their recovery journey. All these components work together to create a comprehensive approach that helps individuals build strong foundations for lasting sobriety.  

What To Expect During PHP?

PHP is designed to give people in early recovery the support they need while allowing them greater freedom than an inpatient program offers. These types of programs provide comprehensive services such as medical care, mental health services, medication management, and relapse prevention planning that help individuals build strong foundations for lasting sobriety. 

If you or someone you know is considering PHP addiction treatment then it’s important to understand how partial hospitalization programs work so that you can make an informed decision about your next steps toward recovery success.

PHP Addiction Treatment Services

PHP addiction treatment is designed to provide structure and care to individuals who no longer require the intensity of an inpatient facility, yet still, need specialized medical care. For this reason, clients typically receive treatment 5-7 days per week, meeting for 4-8 hours a day depending on their progress in recovery. In addition, clients continue to work toward their personal recovery goals at home during their off-hours.

The goal of PHP treatment is to help individuals develop the skills and resources needed to maintain long-term sobriety while providing them with more freedom than they would have if they were enrolled in an inpatient program. While in PHP, clients receive mental health treatment, medical services, and other forms of addiction therapy for several hours per day.

PHP treatment services include:

During PHP, you have access to mental health professionals who can provide guidance on how to manage emotions, cope with triggers, identify strengths and weaknesses in recovery strategies, and create relapse prevention plans in order to deal with the urge of using drugs or alcohol again. In doing so, you will build a healthier, sustainable lifestyle overall. 

As a result, PHP can be very effective in helping you learn to successfully manage your addictive behaviors so that you can transition back into your day-to-day routine.

PHP Therapy Services

At South Coast, our treatment plans are personalized to meet the needs and goals of each client. In general, PHP involves one-on-one counseling and group therapy sessions that focus on addiction recovery, coping techniques, and life skills. Our partial hospitalization program also offers recreational activities like yoga and meditation that incorporate mindfulness techniques while strengthening the connection between your mind and body.

PHP therapy services include:

Our PHP treatment incorporates individual, group, and family therapy needed to maintain your new, sober lifestyle. We also incorporate recreational opportunities, relapse prevention workshops, 12-step meetings, and education on mental health and substance abuse. 

During PHP, our mental health professionals also provide guidance on managing emotions, coping with triggers, and identifying strengths and weaknesses. As you collaborate in developing recovery strategies, you will create a relapse prevention plan to deal with future stressors. While using your new relapse prevention skills, you will be able to build a healthier, more sustainable recovery lifestyle.

PHP Group Therapy

A large portion of PHP treatment consists of group therapy. Group therapy during PHP allows for a constructive dialogue to happen on subjects of a wide range. There are many benefits of a group therapy model, especially for the purpose of addiction treatment. PHP group therapy allows clients to receive feedback from their peers, which often times, makes more of an impact than receiving feedback from figures of authority in a treatment setting. 

PHP group therapy also creates a strong sense of community among clients, allows for clients to feel more comfortable sharing their experiences (as many of their peers have similar experiences), and participation during PHP group therapy produces a variety of perspectives to be discussed and explored. The group therapy model has many benefits, and during PHP, the camaraderie among clients contributes to motivation for continued recovery and the notion that you are never going through the recovery process alone.

To smoothly transition clients into a lower level of care, South Coast’s partial hospitalization program in Orange County offers the next step in treatment for substance abuse.

Our partial hospitalization program in Newport Beach, California provides you with the extra time, space, and support you need to ease back into your life as a sober individual.

Partial Hospitalization Program FAQ

In most cases, we recommend attending inpatient treatment prior to attending our partial hospitalization program. Outpatient levels of care provide amazing programming and support, however, inpatient treatment provides vital services in a distraction-free environment. 

While your length of sobriety is an important factor in finding success during aftercare, it is more important that you have a strong understanding of your substance abuse and the skills you need to prevent a relapse. For this reason, PHP is beneficial to clients who have completed detox and residential treatment and those who have a foundation of knowledge and insight into their clinical goals and needs.

Partial hospitalization programs can run at varying lengths depending on the provider. However, most PHP programs run for a minimum of 28 days. Day and night programs — or partial hospitalization — can also extend for a month or more in length depending on the client’s treatment needs.

Day and night rehab programs teach valuable coping skills in addition to assistance with education and job readiness. Many day and night programs employ case managers who advocate for clients in need of legal, housing, or other personal assistance. These programs also may enlist the help of employment specialists to guide clients through the process of creating their resumes and interview prep to assist in their job search. All of these resources are intended for clients to retain in order to benefit them for a new and healthy sober life.

At South Coast, we employ psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed mental health counselors, substance use disorder professionals, social workers, physicians, as well as support staff like counselor’s assistants and behavioral health technicians.

During partial hospitalization, clients do not live on-site, as opposed to 24/7 lockdown facilities such as detox and residential. While around-the-clock care is no longer required, we encourage clients to join a sober living community during this level of care. 

While South Coast does not offer housing during PHP, we have strong community ties with reputable sober living providers. For this reason, our case managers will assist you in finding the best-suited living arrangements throughout PHP. In doing so, we can assist you in accessing additional recovery resources that will support your recovery journey. 

Typically, PHP programs are synonymous with “day rehab programs.” Day rehab programs get their name because the duration of clinical treatment (therapy, case management, etc.) occurs during the daytime. 

Our PHP program at South Coast is a day rehab program with trauma focus. 

What Happens After PHP?

At South Coast, we offer continuing care after partial hospitalization in our intensive outpatient program (IOP). At our recovery center in Newport Beach, clients can continue their time in treatment receiving comprehensive clinical care in IOP after detox, inpatient, and PHP.
