Mental health and addiction treatment are not one-size-fits-all programs. Everyone has their own set of unique circumstances and needs and what may work for one person might not be the right fit for another.

That’s why, when it comes to treatment programs that are offered, there are several to choose from. One of those programs is partial hospitalization. A partial hospitalization program in California bridges the gap between inpatient hospitalization and outpatient care, offering a structured and intensive treatment environment while still providing the freedom of being able to continue to live at home.

At First Steps Recovery in Clovis, CA, our partial hospitalization program provides a comprehensive, supportive, and flexible approach to recovery, tailored to meet the unique needs of each individual.

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

A partial hospitalization program takes the services and level of care provided with inpatient treatment and combines them with the freedom of living at home and coming to the facility that many seek with outpatient treatment.

As a result, partial hospitalization is ideal for someone who either isn’t able to or doesn’t need to live at the facility but also requires a more comprehensive level of care compared to what a standard outpatient program offers. A PHP may also be recommended by a treatment professional for someone who is making the transition from inpatient to outpatient treatment.

Those participating in a partial hospitalization program go to the treatment facility every day to attend their various therapy sessions, meetings, and activities before returning home at the end of the day.

It’s important to note that since participants return home every day, it is crucial that they have a supportive home environment to return home to, free of all temptations.

Benefits of Partial Hospitalization Programs

As you can imagine, the biggest benefit of a partial hospitalization program is that it provides many of the care and treatment services offered in inpatient treatment without having to live at the facility.

Beyond just that though, there are a number of benefits of partial hospitalization that make it an effective treatment option for many individuals. Some other benefits include:

  • Intensive Care – We touched on it already but with partial hospitalization, participants have access to comprehensive therapeutic services such as psychiatric care and medication management.
  • Cost – Since participants aren’t living at the facility, a PHP often costs less than inpatient care making it a more affordable option for many.
  • Structured Environment – Partial hospitalization provides a consistent routine that helps participants focus on their recovery.
  • Continuity of Care – Partial hospitalization can also be a great transition from inpatient to outpatient treatment. A PHP provides a smooth transition between the levels of care, reducing the risk of relapse.

Who Can Benefit from a PHP?

When it comes to choosing the right treatment program, our treatment professionals will sit down with each individual and recommend a treatment option based on the results of their evaluation.

That being said, the following are people who may be able to benefit from a partial hospitalization program the most:

  • Those who may benefit from inpatient treatment but are unable to live at the facility
  • Those who are transitioning from an inpatient to an outpatient program
  • Those who require a high level of care but do not need 24-hour supervision.

Insurance and Payment Options

  • Anthem

  • Kaiser Permanente
  • Beacon Health Options
  • Tricare

FAQs About Partial Hospitalization Programs

Q: What is the difference between PHP and inpatient care?

PHP offers intensive treatment similar to inpatient care but without the need for overnight stays. Participants return home in the evenings, allowing for greater flexibility and the ability to maintain daily responsibilities.

The length of a PHP varies based on individual needs and progress. Some participants may benefit from a few weeks of treatment, while others may require several months. The program is tailored to each person’s unique situation.

PHP is designed to be flexible, allowing participants to maintain their daily responsibilities. However, the intensive nature of the program may require some adjustments to work or school schedules. Our team can help you find a balance that works for you.

PHP can address a wide range of mental health and substance use disorders, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and addiction. Our comprehensive treatment approach is designed to meet the diverse needs of our clients.

Taking the First Step Towards Recovery with a Partial Hospitalization Program in California

Not every treatment option works for everyone. Some may require 24-hour care and monitoring with inpatient treatment. Others may just need to come to the facility and return home when their day is done as part of an outpatient program.

For those who may be looking for a little bit of both though, partial hospitalization may be best for them.
