How to Prepare for a Partial Hospitalization Program

There are many levels of care regarding addiction and mental health treatment. For some, a residential program is best, with round-the-clock supervision and care. However, a residential program requires a total commitment, and some may not have the time to complete this type of treatment. Another option is a partial hospitalization program (PHP). In this case, the first step is partial hospitalization preparation.

At New Horizons Recovery, we have extensive experience giving people the strategies and confidence they need to live a life free from addiction. Although the road to recovery is challenging, with the proper support and instruction, it is entirely possible. If you or someone in your life might benefit from our Chester County, Pennsylvania partial hospitalization program, reach out to our staff today by calling 267.435.3134 or completing our online contact form. We are standing by to help you with preparing for a PHP.

What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

A partial hospitalization program is an attractive option for some people primarily because of its flexibility. When someone enrolls in a PHP, they attend therapy sessions and classes during the day and then return home at night. This flexibility allows people to maintain their work, school, or family responsibilities while still receiving the treatment they need and deserve. Clients in a partial hospitalization program are not under constant supervision, so they must be committed to their sessions and their recovery journey. Typically, a partial hospitalization program requires five to six hours of sessions a day for five days a week. A PHP includes one-on-one sessions with a therapist, group therapy, physical fitness programs, and educational lectures.

Preparing for a Partial Hospitalization Program

The key to partial hospitalization program preparation is knowing what to expect. Reaching out to the staff at an addiction treatment center before beginning a program will help you know what to bring and what not to bring.

Next, take care of work, family, and financial obligations. Check your employer’s leave of absence policy and discuss your commitment to recovery with your supervisor. Also, check your insurance to see what is covered and what you will pay. If you are a parent, ensure that your children have childcare while you are healing in treatment. Additionally, take care of the little things, such as putting a hold on your mail and suspending your cell phone service.

Finally, create a network of positive people in your life that you can rely on for support as you work through your partial hospitalization program. Having people in your corner as you make this significant change in your life will increase your chances of long-lasting recovery.
