Substance Abuse PHP

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

Here at Sarasota Addiction Specialists, we understand that the road to recovery from substance abuse can be a challenging one, which is why we offer a partial hospitalization program (PHP) to support individuals as they work towards lasting recovery.

Our PHP is designed for individuals who require more intensive treatment than traditional outpatient care, but who do not need the round-the-clock supervision of a residential program. During the PHP, clients will participate in a structured schedule of treatment activities, including individual therapy, group therapy, and other evidence-based treatments. These activities are designed to address the underlying causes of addiction and to provide clients with the skills and strategies needed to maintain long-term sobriety.

Our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to providing compassionate and evidence-based care to support clients on their journey towards recovery. We understand that each client is unique, and we tailor our treatment plans to meet the individual needs and goals of each person in our care.

If you or a loved one is struggling with substance abuse, we encourage you to reach out for help. Our PHP at Sarasota Addiction Specialists can provide the support and guidance you need to begin your journey towards a sober and fulfilling life

To determine if PHP is right for you, it may be helpful to consider the following factors:

  • The severity of your drug or alcohol abuse: PHP is typically recommended for individuals who have a moderate to sever level of substance abuse.
  • Your level of support at home: PHP is more intensive than traditional outpatient care, so it’s important to have a supportive home environment to help maintain your recovery outside of treatment.
  • Your treatment goals: PHP can be a good fit for individuals who are motivated to work towards lasting recovery and who are willing to participate in a structured treatment program.

Ultimately, the decision about whether PHP is the right fit for you will depend on your unique needs and circumstances.
