3 Benefits of a Partial Hospitalization Program

doctor explaining the benefits of a partial hospitalization program

There are many types of addiction treatment programs that are offered as direct entry programs or offered after detox. Many people likely think of inpatient or outpatient treatment programs when they consider the types of available substance abuse treatment. They may not know that there are other treatment options. At Rockland Recovery, our day partial hospitalization program provides services that may not be available to some clients in other programs.

What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

Partial hospitalization programs provide strong support for clients. They also provide a highly structured setting without complete residential treatment.

There is a misconception that some people may believe about a day partial hospitalization program. It is often thought of in the context of a type of treatment exclusively for those with psychiatric issues. The programs provide intensive services for clients that have substance abuse issues.

Clients generally spend several hours a day at the program location and up to twenty or more hours every week at the location. The program provides services and treatment that offer a bridge between inpatient treatment and returning home after treatment. It may also be viewed as the ideal opportunity to provide more intensive treatment than a traditional outpatient program, which typically offers less restrictive services.

The Rockland Recovery partial hospitalization MA provides several benefits to people that choose this type of treatment. It is not the casual drop-in meeting. It is not an outpatient 12-step program.

3 Benefits of a Partial Hospitalization Program

1. Cost-Effective

A partial hospitalization program is less expensive than the cost of a residential treatment program. Avoid the high costs associated with some residential treatment programs by completing substance abuse treatment at a partial hospitalization program. Additionally, insurance companies are likely to cover their portion of the program charges.

2. Better Outcomes

Several studies and other work by researchers show that partial hospitalization programs feature improved outcomes across multiple variables. Studies show that clients demonstrate improvements in many variables, such as a reduced likelihood of continued substance abuse. There is also an improved level of functioning as clients transition between inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment. The program offers the strong support and structure that is often needed before clients continue their recovery in their community.

3. Maintain Responsibilities

A day hospitalization program allows clients to continue with their outside responsibilities without interruptions that occur with inpatient treatment programs. Continuing essential family responsibilities, engaging in work or school without having to leave home for a long period of time due to an inpatient treatment commitment is likely vital for many people. The partial hospitalization programs allow clients to continue living their life without taking time away from these or other responsibilities.

There are other benefits, including the controlled setting of the highly structured treatment program, the potential for a reduced risk of relapse, and the opportunity to enjoy an improved quality of life. Some clients need help with responsibilities such as managing their medications. This is something that clients may not receive if they return to the community after leaving inpatient treatment.
