Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for Substance Abuse

The Partial Hospitalization Program at Lakeview Health is the level of care that typically follows Residential Treatment and precedes Intensive Outpatient (IOP) programs. Our Partial Hospitalization Program serves patients with alcohol and substance use disorders, co-occurring mental health disorders, and a history of trauma or post-traumatic stress. Many of our PHP patients have completed Lakeview’s Detox, Inpatient, and Residential Treatment programs – or similar programs elsewhere – before entering our PHP program.

Available at the following locations:

Structured Transition to Practice Sobriety

The transition from residential treatment to partial hospitalization often marks the halfway-point of your treatment journey. This is a critical moment in the recovery process. If you’ve been through detox, inpatient, and residential care at Lakeview Health or another facility, you’ll probably have about a month of sobriety under your belt, but this will vary with the individual. Your body should be completely clear of alcohol and drugs, and your mind should be accustomed to the idea that recovery is a lifelong process. If you’ve uncovered any co-occurring mental health disorders during detox, inpatient rehab, or residential treatment, you’ve taken steps toward understanding how they relate to your substance use disorder and the role they play in your continued sobriety.

You’re ready to start practicing your new coping skills and healthy, substance-free lifestyle habits in an unstructured settings – but you’re probably not ready to go it completely alone. Our Partial Hospitalization Program gives you the perfect balance between clinical supervision and personal responsibility. We add step-wise, structured, off-site experiences to your treatment routine to shift the ball slowly and carefully to your side of the court. Though your sobriety is – and has been since the beginning – dependent upon you and your level of commitment to the process, we’re committed to guiding you from detox to discharge in such a way as to give you the best chance possible of long-term, sustained success.

Daily Life in the Partial Hospitalization Program

At the Partial Hospitalization level of care, you live in your own home or a structured sober living environment but receive a full day of treatment on campus. You participate in many of the same recovery groups, wellness activities, and social support meetings you experienced during your initial stages of treatment and recovery, with one big difference: independent living and off-site activities mean you take the first step toward life after rehab.

PHP day programs typically begin at 7:30 am and conclude at 6:30 pm, though treatment hours will vary by location. In all PHP our programs, you receive at least six hours of structured therapy per day. You eat healthy and delicious meals prepared daily in our on-campus dining rooms, with healthy snacks available between meals.

Your treatment plan closely resembles those you follow during Inpatient Rehab and Residential Treatment. You continue with one-on-one therapy, daily 12-step meetings, medical/psychiatric care as needed, and family sessions. Here’s what changes:

  • You live off-campus
  • You administer your own medications
  • On weekday evenings, you can participate in off-site 12-step meetings
  • At Lakeview locations with weekend programming, on Saturdays you can:
    • Participate in off-site team building exercises
    • Attend off-site 12-step meetings
    • Receive on-site family visits
  • On Sundays, you can:
    • Participate in off-site spirituality activities
    • Attend off-site 12-step meetings
    • Receive on-site family visits

Refine Real-World Recovery Skills with Full Clinical Support

This step in the recovery process allows you to go out into the world and apply the sobriety strategies you’ve discussed in group, one-on-one therapy, and on-site meetings while giving you a safe, structured place to land, debrief, and discuss your experiences after the fact. You get a full day of clinical care, but spend evenings in a healthy setting with recovery peers. You attend off-site 12-step meetings and interact with people you’ve never met. You get new perspectives, hear new voices, and form a picture of yourself – your sober self – living a clean and sober lifestyle. You gain experiential knowledge and start to answer the million-dollar question: is all this going to work when I leave Lakeview?
