Inpatient PHP (Partial Hospitalization) Program
Recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is not a simple task. Detox is not treatment, and short-term inpatient treatment is just the start of building a solid foundation. Sadly, many people complete inpatient treatment and return home to the lives they led before treatment. Within a short period, they are using again. The nature of addiction is insidious. Inpatient Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) are a further step in securing early sobriety.
You or your loved one has been addicted to alcohol, drugs and other destructive behaviors. The brain, under the influence of a substance, is transformed in structure and functioning. An underlying mental health issue may be part of the path to addiction. In such cases, which are common, the changes in brain function due to drugs or alcohol, may worsen the veiled mental health issue. Without proper diagnosis and treatment, the mental health issue will continue to deteriorate and threaten any recovery. Indeed, mental health issues are often not diagnosed accurately until the client has been entirely free of alcohol and drugs. Recovery is tenuous unless psychological health issues are correctly identified, treated and monitored. And, it takes time for the brain to return to natural functioning. In Rock Recovery Center’s (RRC) PHP program, our clients’ can rest assured that their treatment plans will be regularly modified, addressing needs as they are revealed.
Rock Recovery Center’s PHP track provides individuals with the continued treatment protocols necessary to strengthen his or her recovery. In this environment, a client can take the time to reflect on his or her life, behavior, attitudes and begin to change these for the better under the guidance of professional clinical therapists and addiction physicians. Clients are supported by trained addiction technicians as well.
During PHP, clients explore with their therapists, and in a group, the causes of their addiction. They also learn about the process of becoming addicted, develop the tools to fight relapse, and gain the ability to identify patterns of self-destructive behavior. Additionally, if the client is agreeable, RRC has a family component to assist the client and family members in breaking dysfunctional behaviors during family interactions. Addiction is known as a family disease, everyone is affected.
Time for Self-Reflection During PHP Builds a Solid Foundation for Recovery
During PHP, clients learn to become responsible for one’s feelings, understand how to cope with feelings, explore sources of personal strength, experience the power found in going to 12 meetings and finding a support group, and begin to understand that drugs and alcohol never solve the problem. All of these experiences build a solid foundation for recovery.
Because clients in early recovery lack many of the tools to identify relapse signs, they are most vulnerable to relapse, especially outside of a structured environment such as that provided in RRC’s PHP. As part of our Partial Hospitalization Program, supporting staff is available 24/7. The purpose of PHP is to slowly and methodically reintroduce the client to daily life. Therapeutic groups continue as the client learn to renegotiate daily living such as going to the grocery store, attending 12 meetings and showing up timely for clinical services.
Clients in PHP receive 20-25 hours (or 3-5 hours a day) of clinical services. Often clients will need the assistance with medication to help manage continued withdrawal symptoms that can occur after detox such as anxiety, depression, anger. Medication management is crucial at this point in one’s recovery. Regular assessments by medical and clinical staff ensure that one’s physical and emotional needs are being addressed in a timely fashion.
Finally, in PHP, clients learn the causes of their addiction, as well as the role of self-reflection about choices and consequences. Behavior modification helps the addict learn to substitute self-destructive behaviors and choices with new self-affirming ones. In addition to the learning experienced within the clinical treatment environment, RRC offers a unique type of therapeutic modality in adventure therapy. RRC believes there are many avenues to recovery. Adventure therapy, part of RRC’s PHP provides clients the opportunity to learn about themselves, teamwork, problem-solving and more outside a building structure in a natural environment. Such experiences build health not only for addicts but all human beings. Definitive self-esteem building activities strength a client’s resiliency and ability to meet challenges without turning to drugs and alcohol or other self-destructive behaviors.
