Partial hospitalization programs were first popularized in the 1960s by addiction centers across the nation. These centers utilized intensive therapy sessions and medical treatments during the day but allowed their patients to go home each night to their families. Since patients didn’t have to stay on site, partial hospitalizations became popular with insurance companies and patients alike. Today, these programs are still thriving and may be an excellent option for you or your loved one who is struggling with substance abuse.
What is Partial Hospitalization?
Partial hospitalization programs allow patients to participate in daily therapy sessions, medical treatments, and group sessions while still staying in the comfort of their own homes, or while staying on site in an apartment or housing complex. Centers across the nation may do partial hospitalizations differently, but often times patients have the choice to go home or stay on site. At Southern California Addiction Center, we offer lovely, luxurious apartments and onsite housing for patients who wish to stay onsite with us. We also allow patients to stay at home if they live near the treatment center during their partial hospitalization treatment.
Partial hospitalization is a type of treatment that typically takes place 5-7 days per week and can last all day long. Each day, patients come to the treatment center and take part in a variety of individual and group therapy sessions, medical treatments, and more. Each treatment plan is tailored to meet each individual’s needs and desires so that they will have the best chance at succeeding in their recovery. At Southern California Addiction Center, we sit down with each patient and genuinely get to know them so that we can cater a treatment plan to fit their needs. You or your loved one will be in great hands while here.
Who is a Good Candidate for Partial Hospitalization?
To be a good candidate for partial hospitalization, you or your loved one may have to meet a few requirements. First, you or your loved one must not need to undergo a full medical detoxification program. Patients who are first starting their addiction recovery treatment may need to undergo a medical detoxification program to become medically stable enough to be able to handle therapy sessions and focus on their recovery. These patients require 24/7 monitoring by medical staff and must start their treatment in an inpatient setting. However, these patients can also step down into partial hospitalization as they graduate from their inpatient treatment plan.
If you or your loved one don’t require medical detoxification, then a partial hospitalization program may be an excellent option for you. The second requirement for a successful partial hospitalization is full participation. These programs will not be successful if you or your loved one doesn’t show up to every therapy session, medical treatment, and appointment that is scheduled. Full participation is absolutely vital to recovering successfully. Finally, a suitable candidate is one who has an excellent outside support system. Whether this is a great family support system or a friend support system, it is vital to you or your loved one’s recovery that they have a set support system in place.
Types of Treatments Offered During Partial Hospitalization Stays
Partial hospitalizations offer a variety of treatments to patients 5-7 days per week. The program typically starts by evaluating the patient and understanding their needs and desires from the program. Doing so, allows Southern California Addiction Center to get to know you or your loved one, and to do their best to cater a program that will meet you or your loved one’s needs.
Partial hospitalization also provides medication management with a licensed psychiatrist on staff and daily therapy sessions. These therapy sessions may be individual sessions and group sessions. Typically, programs offer a mix of both each day. Both therapy sessions focus on the 12 step program and cover topics such as trauma survival, self-esteem, dealing with family members, and understanding relationships. These therapy sessions are designed to help you or your loved one understand the root cause of your addiction and understand how to cope better with everyday stresses once the program is finished. By helping patients to develop coping skills, Southern California Addiction Center can help patients stay sober once they graduate from the program.
Partial hospitalizations also offer recreational therapy such as music therapy, animal therapy, art therapy, and a variety of exercise classes. They also offer family therapy to help you or your loved one’s family become more involved and also air their grievances about substance abuse. All of these types of treatment are designed to help you or your loved one genuinely succeed in recovery.
