PARTIAL HOSPITALIZATION PROGRAM
When clients first come to Northern Arizona Center for Addiction, they spend time in our residential treatment center where they discontinue any use of alcohol and drugs, undergo medical detox if necessary, and begin their individualized treatment protocols and therapy work. When they are ready to leave the residential facility, they transition to live in our sober living environment and begin the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). This program is a step down from residential treatment and is sometimes referred to as “day-treatment.” In PHP, we offer a medically supervised program that provides comprehensive clinical treatments with intensive therapy to those suffering from substance abuse.
Our clients spend about 30 days in PHP therapy groups which meet several times a day. This provides structured and focused treatment, and then clients return to the sober living facility at night. Not only does this give clients a safe and ordered environment in which they can deal with many underlying issues, but it also gives them an adequate amount of time to readjust before reintegrating into regular, day-to-day life. By providing intensive group and individual therapy in the PHP program, many clients are often more successful in avoiding relapse at a time when they are most vulnerable to cravings.
At Northern Arizona Center for Addiction we value each step in the process towards recovery. PHP plays a critical part in the rehab process, slowly stepping patients from full-time residential treatment to carefully monitored and therapeutically intensive daytime care. As patients progress through all the levels of treatment they are more prepared to successfully navigate life after treatment.
