Partial Hospitalization Program

Is A Partial Hospitalization Program Right For You Or A Loved One?  

Have you recently completed a residential rehab program, but feel that you need more support than an intensive outpatient program (IOP) provides as you attempt to transition from inpatient care back into the outside world? Or, have you recently relapsed and need a high level of support, structure and accountability to help you back into recovery? Maybe your inpatient team has recommended a partial hospitalization program (PHP). Or perhaps evening responsibilities at home or the high costs of inpatient care make a residential rehab program unrealistic, but you know that you need significant support and structure to help you achieve sobriety and/or remain active in your recovery. Are you seeking a safe, supportive and positive environment to help you maintain sobriety and engage in the healing work that is often needed to reframe your relationship with substances and create a life you enjoy and can be proud of? 

There is a healing path for everyone, and a partial hospitalization program focused on positive recovery through Kagey Family Counseling can help you discover yours. 

You Are Not Alone

Addiction is prevalent in our society, and we are all walking a shared path. While you may feel confused and isolated, please know that you are not alone. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) 2017 Annual National Report, almost 20 million Americans have battled a substance abuse disorder—and those are just the people that we know about.

COVID-19, stay-at-home orders and the pandemic has impacted us all. A large number of people turned to drugs and/or alcohol as a means to cope with uncertainty, heightened stress and feelings of isolation. Many of those people, perhaps like yourself, who once thought they had a handle on their use, have suddenly found themselves using more and more and are seeking help. 

Our substance abuse counselors and recovery coaches also know from the inside-out and on an intrinsic level what it feels like to struggle with chemical dependency. We understand the trauma, challenges and confusion. We know what it’s like to live in a family where drugs and alcohol take priority. However, we also know that there is good and bad in every situation and that, with help, support and guidance, there is a path to recovery for everyone and empowering places to go.

Understanding A Partial Hospitalization Program 

A PHP is the most intensive form of outpatient treatment. Although it’s called a partial hospitalization program, sessions do not occur in a hospital, and there are no overnight stays. Often referred to as day treatment, a PHP is a more intense form of an intensive outpatient program (IOP). It includes a high level of structure and accountability through individual counseling, group therapy, psychoeducation and family therapy. Given the higher frequency and length of drug and alcohol treatment and counseling sessions, a PHP can help you or a loved one transition from a residential rehab in a supportive environment while continuingly building life skills. The high frequency and length of sessions also supports people who are unable to engage in residential care, but need and desire the structure, support, skills and resources to achieve and/or maintain sobriety. 

The Benefits Of A PHP

  • Establish a recovery support system outside of a residential care program
  • Bridge the gap between residential treatment and outpatient treatment 
  • Enjoy the flexibility to attend to personal commitments while also prioritizing your recovery
  • Work with a positive and experienced staff that provides a high level of support, structure and accountability 
  • Develop strategies to cope with stress, cravings, triggers and high-risk situations
  • Address trauma and any other issues related to your social, relational, mental and emotional wellbeing
  • Learn how to apply your strengths with meaning and purpose
  • Develop increased resiliency and tools for healing mind, body and soul
  • Promote family healing and positive growth 
  • Take ownership of your own recovery and gain confidence in your resources and strengths
  • Work toward creating a life that you enjoy and can be proud of 

PHP Positive Recovery At Kagey Family Counseling 

At Kagey Family Counseling we know both personally and professionally the many challenges, as well as awards,  that come with achieving and maintaining sobriety. We also know that sobriety is just one—albeit highly important— facet of your life, which is why we take a positive approach to recovery. Our short-term, intensive PHP positive recovery program helps you identify and build upon your strengths as you gain the tools, insights and resources needed to live a life of meaning and purpose. Each session is facilitated by a highly experienced, licensed substance abuse counselor, and the care that you receive during the program is tailored to meet your individual and specific needs. We draw from the PERMA model (P: positivity; E: engagement; R: relationships; M: meaning; A: achievement) to help you transform harmful behaviors into ones that bring you joy and meaning. 

Our PHP program generally lasts one to two weeks, depending on the level of support that you feel you need. This intensive program consists of five-hour group sessions five times a week, as well as one individual session. Family members are also invited to attend one group family session a week to connect with others and learn about how substance abuse issues affect families, codependency and how they can best support themselves and their loved one through the recovery process. 

After completing the PHP program, most clients transfer into our intensive outpatient program (IOP), which occurs over a 6-8 week period, with clients meeting three times a week for 2.5-hour group sessions, as well as one weekly individual session. This natural succession through various stages of treatment and comprehensive care allows for a gradual increase in confidence and personal resources and responsibilities and a steady decline in structure.

Adjusting to sober life can be challenging and entering into a treatment program can feel daunting, which is why we’re here to help you every step of the way.  We also know that there is a path to healing for everyone and that you do not have to continue to live in the overwhelming cycle of abuse and addiction and the often accompanying feelings of guilt, shame and blame. We provide a safe, confidential and welcoming environment that is respectful of your individuality and specific needs. Our highly experienced and compassionate staff focuses on the positive aspects of your life and recovery, helping you foster your strengths as you engage in a positive, mindful and healing path of recovery.
