Addiction is a chronic disease that can be managed but not cured. Therefore, leaving treatment with a solid continuing care plan is essential to avoiding relapse and continuing the recovery journey.
During our partial hospitalization program in Panama City Beach, FL for substance abuse at JourneyPure Emerald Coast, a multidisciplinary team of medical and psychiatric professionals work together to continue managing the addiction and its co-occurring mental health disorders.
Our Panama City Beach, FL PHP offers the attention of a residential program without having to remain in a hospital.
What is a partial Hospitalization Program For Substance Abuse?
Our partial hospitalization program in Panama City Beach, FL is a type of outpatient care where patients stay at a treatment facility all day to receive treatment but then go home at night. It is also known as “day rehab.” The program provides the patient with a fine balance between clinical supervision and personal responsibility.
Enrollment in PHP for substance abuse means that the patient is ready to start practicing his or her new, substance-free lifestyle habits in unstructured settings, but maybe isn’t ready to go it entirely alone. The body should be completely clear of substances and the mind should be accustomed to the idea of recovery as a lifelong process.
JourneyPure’s Panama City Beach, FL partial hospitalization program offers therapies like group and individual counseling as well as art and music therapy, if available. PHP rehab patients can choose to attend intensive outpatient or general outpatient programs after PHP if they so desire.
PHP rehab is made especially for those who:
- Cannot commit to a traditional inpatient stay
- Want or need more freedom than a residential stay can provide
- Do better with a less structured, more flexible environment
- Have a great deal of support from friends and family members but also benefit from the structure that partial hospitalization program offers
In most cases, patients can enter PHP rehab quickly, unless the patient is suffering from severe withdrawal. In those cases, a residential detoxification program is recommended.
A partial hospitalization program in Panama City Beach, FL typically occurs five to seven days each week, usually for several hours each day. During sessions, therapists emphasize the importance of patients’ maintaining sobriety and complying with the treatment program out for them.
