Once patients complete their treatment goals for the PHP program, they can be evaluated to transfer to intensive outpatient program (IOP), which provides fewer hours per day of services.

Partial hospitalization is the highest level of care available outside of inpatient or residential treatment.

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)?

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is much like an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) however it offers more flexibility than a Residential Rehab or a full-time in-patient facility because it allows you to return home every day. 

At the end of the day you will return to your home, and will return back to the program the next day. Each day may include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy and other support groups to help in your healing process.

People who struggle with substance use may benefit from the schedule of PHP because it allows them to receive a high level of care and support during the day from Encore’s treatment team, while also allowing patients to utilize the in-person support of their family, friends, and other community contacts at the end of each day and on weekends. PHP allows a patient to receive treatment while still living at home or in a sober house or sober living environment. Not all patients are in the same situation, however, or have the same needs, so PHPs are not the best treatment option for everyone. Only a careful assessment can determine what treatment is required to meet the needs of each patient and family.

About Encore's Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Encore’s PHP can be used as the first step-down level of care following residential treatment. Once patients have stabilized medically in detox and behaviorally during residential treatment, they could continue in a partial hospitalization program. At this point in their recovery, they no longer require 24-hour nursing care or daily medical visits and are beginning to work on their reintegration into the community.

Encore’s partial hospitalization program bundles together a variety of outpatient services, providing structured programming while maintaining the ability to customize care. Encore’s PHP meet the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s (ASAM) level 2.5.

Encore’s partial hospitalization program (PHP) provides intensive treatment Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm for substance use disorder.
