A partial hospitalization program provides a level of treatment for those who are in drug or alcohol rehab or in mental health treatment. Due to the individualized nature of both treatment programs, a partial hospitalization program may come at different points in the treatment continuum. The Ranch has a professional staff of clinicians, social workers, doctors, and psychiatrists who are well aware of when partial hospitalization for addiction treatment should be utilized.
Do I Need Partial Hospitalization for Addiction Treatment?
It all depends on what you and your treatment team consider best. Generally, partial hospitalization is followed by inpatient treatment. Partial hospitalization is an intensive program where you are on-site at a hospital or treatment facility for a major part of the day. It may not be seven days a week but it is usually no less than five days per week. While you are in a partial hospitalization for addiction treatment you will have access to medical staff including physicians and psychiatrists, as well as other treatment staff. Your days will be filled with group therapy as well as individual therapy sessions with a counselor or a psychiatrist or psychologist. There may be other programs involved in your partial hospitalization for addiction treatment.
