The Role of Day Treatment (PHP):

Day treatment programs provide a structured and intensive therapeutic environment without the need for residential care. Participants attend sessions during the day and return home or to supportive housing in the evenings, allowing them to maintain connections with family, work, and community support systems. Our programs offer a range of services tailored to address the unique needs of each individual, including:

  • Individual counseling: Licensed therapists conduct one-on-one counseling sessions to explore underlying issues, develop coping strategies, and set personalized treatment goals.
  • Group therapy: Group therapy sessions provide opportunities for peer support, skill-building, and interpersonal growth. Participants learn from one another’s experiences and develop a sense of belonging and accountability within the group.
  • Psychoeducation: Educational workshops and classes offer valuable information about addiction, mental health, coping skills, relapse prevention, and healthy lifestyle choices.
  • Medication management: For individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders, psychiatric evaluation, and medication management may be integrated into the treatment plan to address symptoms and stabilize mood.
  • Holistic therapies: Many day treatment programs incorporate holistic approaches such as yoga, mindfulness meditation, art therapy, and recreational activities to promote overall well-being and stress reduction.

What To Expect At Our Day Treatment Programs

Our day treatment (PHP) programs for mental health and addiction offer a crucial bridge between intensive residential care and the challenges of daily life. With a focus on providing structured support and therapeutic interventions, our programs empower individuals to address their mental health concerns and substance use disorders in a supportive and nurturing environment.

One of the hallmarks of our partial hospitalization programs is their emphasis on comprehensive assessment and individualized care. Upon admission, individuals undergo thorough evaluations conducted by a multidisciplinary team of professionals, including psychiatrists, therapists, and addiction counselors. These assessments help identify the unique needs, strengths, and challenges of each participant, laying the foundation for personalized treatment plans tailored to their specific goals and circumstances.

Our day treatment programs offer a structured schedule of therapeutic activities designed to address the complex interplay between mental health and addiction. These may include individual therapy sessions, group counseling, psychoeducation workshops, and experiential therapies such as art therapy, mindfulness meditation, and recreational activities. By engaging in a variety of modalities, our clients gain insights, develop coping skills, and build resilience in a supportive and collaborative setting.

Additionally, many individuals seeking day treatment for mental health and addiction present with co-occurring disorders, commonly known as dual diagnosis. Our day treatment programs are uniquely equipped to address these complex challenges through integrated dual-diagnosis treatment. By simultaneously targeting both mental health symptoms and substance use behaviors, our programs help individuals achieve greater stability and improve their overall quality of life.

Peer support plays a pivotal role in all of our programs, fostering a sense of belonging and connection among participants. Through group therapy sessions and mutual support groups, individuals have the opportunity to share their experiences, receive validation, and learn from others facing similar challenges. Additionally, community engagement activities, such as volunteer work or recreational outings, promote social integration and encourage individuals to rediscover a sense of purpose and meaning outside of their mental health and addiction struggles.

In addition to addressing immediate mental health and addiction concerns, our day treatment programs focus on equipping individuals with the practical skills and strategies needed to navigate daily life and sustain long-term recovery. Participants learn valuable life skills such as stress management, communication, problem-solving, and healthy coping mechanisms. Moreover, relapse prevention planning and ongoing support help individuals identify triggers, develop coping strategies, and build a robust support network to safeguard their sobriety and well-being.
