While in treatment, we
provide an environment with
24-hour care.

At Foundations Wellness Center, we guide clients to find out where their strengths lie, and what they need to best recover from chemical dependence.

What is Partial Hospitalization?

The partial hospitalization program (PHP) is our most intensive level of psychiatric and medical care to help clients recover from substance abuse.

While undergoing PHP, clients stay at our safe and monitored facility to recover from chemical dependency and other factors that contribute to addiction during the day. During the evenings and nights, they spend their time at a separate living space, such as their home or a sober living facility, taking a break from the intensive treatment.

Partial hospitalization is the recommended first step towards sobriety for those who are suffering from drug or alcohol addiction as it offers the highest chance of successful recovery.

At Foundations Wellness Center, we guide clients to find out where their strengths lie, and what they need to best recover from chemical dependence.

A medical professional thoroughly evaluates the client upon admission to determine if PHP is the right treatment program for them.

The treatment is not only focused on helping clients overcome their addiction.

How the Partial Hospitalization Program Works

Clients participate in a structured program consisting of over 40 hours of clinical treatment each week. We take into account each patient’s needs to provide them with individualized treatment plans.

Clients first meet with a PHP treatment coordinator who orients patients to the program. The plan continues with a psychosocial assessment that helps create the treatment plan and set goals with the client. While in treatment, clients attend individual therapy and counseling sessions with a medical and clinical professionals. In addition, clients will interact with others in group therapy sessions, including specialty and peer groups.

Our staff use therapeutic techniques to address past behaviors while promoting positive actions and associations. Clients and their families will also be provided with all available resources to rebuild foundations for a healthy lifestyle in recovery. The treatment is not only focused on helping clients overcome their addiction. We also offer mental health psychiatric evaluations and effective psychopharmacological strategies to combat mental health issues like depression and anxiety. As part of the program, our staff also provide life-skills counseling, recovery education, a history and physical examination, as well as an extensive relapse prevention plan for clients who are nearing the end of their stay.

Our team supervises and monitors clients throughout their progress to ensure they are on the right track to recovery. Clients are expected to report and communicate with all members of their clinical team.

Partial hospitalization is ideal for those who have a chronic or recurring drug or alcohol dependence.

When is Partial Hospitalization Necessary?

Partial hospitalization is ideal for those who have a chronic or recurring drug or alcohol dependence. Struggling with substance abuse can be one of the toughest challenges to overcome and requires intensive and monitored treatment.

Individuals who experience withdrawal symptoms when trying to stop using a substance, whether it’s drugs or alcohol, have likely developed a dependence. What most individuals may not be aware of is that post-acute withdrawal syndrome, or PAWS, can last two to four weeks after medical detox. This can make for an extremely uncomfortable situation if they are not given medical care. The environment they are surrounded by or live in can also exacerbate the substance abuse problem. At Foundation Wellness, our clients receive full support and professional medical attention to help alleviate these symptoms with medication.

A PHP program is probably the best option for those who are not sure how to start their road to recovery. We pick up where medical detox leaves off, assisting with the transition for clients still experiencing PAWS, providing hope for a better life in the real world.

Continued Path to Recovery

Once enrolling in our partial hospitalization program, clients are expected to be committed to focusing on sobriety. Clients receive our full support and additional assistance every step of the way. Each day, clients will gain vital tools to help them progress, and within 30 to 60 days they will be ready to gain independent living with our intensive outpatient program.

The intensive outpatient program consists of 9 to 21 hours of treatment per week based on personal needs and desired treatment plan. This program offers clients more freedom to apply the skills acquired in therapy, and get them on the track to full recovery.
