Partial Hospitalization Program

Recovering from substance abuse and addiction is a struggle. Everyone’s situation is unique, so a personalized program may provide the services needed to live a clean and sober life.

For many, it may be beneficial to seek a partial hospitalization program.

What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)?

Clients receive treatment on campus six days a week. PHP may provide the same treatment and intensity as a residential program. The difference between residential treatment and PHP is that clients will leave the facility at the end of the day and go to a sober living house. This living arrangement may provide additional comforts and freedoms while retaining a high level of accountability.


What Is Involved in Executive Recovery Center’s PHP?

Executive Recovery Center’s PHP relies heavily upon a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). This approach may assist individuals struggling with both drug and alcohol addiction.

The DBT facilitators at Executive Recovery Center were trained in DBT directly by its creator, psychologist Marsha M. Linehan.

DBT-based treatment may help clients to change their thinking and habitual patterns of behavior, and may also create a higher probability of recovery than other methods of treatment.

The Four Modules of DBT

  • Mindfulness
    Intentionally living with an awareness of the present moment, without judging or rejecting the moment, without attachment to the moment.
  • Distress Tolerance
    Stop. Take a step back. Observe. Proceed mindfully.
  • Emotional Regulation
    Helps decrease the intensity of emotional feelings and ride out strong emotions without acting on them.
  • Interpersonal Effectiveness
    Relationships: asking for what you want, setting boundaries, ending/fixing/starting/changing relationships, accepting relationships as they are.

Executive Recovery Center’s PHP program strives to set you on a life-long road to recovery through the development of coping skills that reduce your urges to use.

Individual & Group Therapy

Individual therapy is based on Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Credentialed therapists work one-on-one to deal with addiction as well as related issues.

There are also group therapy options. Group therapy may be beneficial in many ways:

  • Clients practice new skills within the group.
  • Group members may offer support and encouragement to each other
  • They may also learn from each other’s experiences.
  • Clients develop new strategies for staying sober.

Clients also have the ability to attend groups that focus on specific subjects. These include 12-step groups, anger management groups, and relapse prevention groups.

Customized Treatment

Clients come from different circumstances and backgrounds and may choose to enter recovery for different reasons. In a partial hospitalization program, clients may receive structured treatment plans tailored to meet individual needs, which may be an important step for ensuring quality treatment.

Personalized treatment plans allow for treating co-occurring disorders like anxiety or depression. Individuals may also learn coping strategies and gain tools for living a productive, meaningful life.

Housing While You Rehab

Executive Recovery Center provides housing for you during your treatment. See our Rehab Housing page for more information.

Extending Your Treatment with IOP

After PHP, your treatment can be extended with Outpatient care. We call this IOP or Intensive Outpatient Program.

IOP care offers clients the ability to live in less controlled sober housing, receiving treatment for just a couple of hours per day. Clients may begin to integrate back into society and use newly learned coping skills to the test.
