Partial Hospitalization Program: What it is, Who it’s For, Why it’s Used

by

When you decide to seek professional help for a mental health condition, substance use disorder, or both, you might find there are a lot more forms of treatment than you thought.

There is no “one size fits all” approach to mental and physical health care, so there are dozens of different treatments, programs and rehabilitation services available to you.

One of these is a partial hospitalization program.

In this article, we’re going to take a closer look into mental partial hospitalization programs as well as addiction partial hospitalization programs. We’ll help you better understand what these programs are, why they’re used, who they’re best for, as well as their top benefits.

What is a partial hospitalization program?

A partial hospitalization program — sometimes also called — is a structured treatment program for someone struggling with a mental health disorder, substance use disorder or both (dual diagnosis).

Contrary to the name, you are not actually spending time in a hospital setting. Rather, these 

programs are often referred to as a “day program,” due to the fact that patients, while receiving care and engaging in various sessions during the day, continue to live at home (as opposed to onsite 24/7, such as in the case of rehab).

Partial hospitalization programs are a good option for those who are unable (or unwilling) to enroll in a full-time residental treatment program.

What to expect

Every facility’s partial hospitalization programs vary a bit in their treatment plan and format, but the majority of them can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual.

For the most part, you can expect:

  • A diagnostic interview and initial assessment
  • A formal evaluation of your phsyical and mental health
  • The construction of a personalized treatment and recovery plan
  • Individual, group, or family services and activities
  • On-site nursing services or medication management, if needed
  • Development of a continuum of care for your life after completing the program
