San Antonio Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP)
Alamo Behavioral Health offers a collaborative and individualized approach for each client across various levels of care. A partial hospitalization program (PHP), can provide you with a safe, supportive environment with comprehensive therapeutic support that can pave the way for your recovery.
Whether you’ve already completed detox or a residential addiction treatment program or you’re just starting your recovery journey, a PHP can help.
What is a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)?
Partial hospitalization programs are an excellent option for people who need intensive counseling and support but no longer require 24-hour supervision and monitoring. PHP offers all of the same services as inpatient rehab programs do, but you aren’t required to live at a supervised facility. Instead, you can live at home with your family or in a San Antonio sober living home.
While taking part in our PHP addiction treatment program, you will participate in about 20 hours of group and individual therapy services each week, attending therapy sessions Monday-Friday. Meanwhile, having the option to leave the rehab facility at the end of the day allows you to immerse yourself in the real world while you still have the support of a therapeutic environment. You can also enjoy weekends with friends, family, or your support group. This balance gives you a valuable opportunity to practice the skills that you’ve learned in therapy in real-life situations.
PHP permits plenty of time for personalized treatment. Therapy will focus on helping you address the driving forces behind your substance abuse, whether those forces be trauma, mental illness, or emotional distress. Once you identify and overcome the root causes of your addiction, you can begin learning relapse-prevention skills that will help you stay sober in the future.
What Does PHP Treat?
PHP can address a wide range of mental health and addiction issues, including:
- Alcohol abuse and addiction
- Prescription opioid addiction
- Drug addiction
- Trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Mood disorders like depression and bipolar disorder
- Anxiety disorders
- Mental health symptoms caused by substance abuse (dual diagnosis)
PHP also includes case management to help you navigate things like insurance, court matters, and collaboration with your workplace.
What to Expect During a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) in Texas
Most of your time in PHP will be spent in group and individual therapy sessions. All therapy sessions are guided by compassionate, master’s level, licensed therapists who work individually with patients to help them overcome negative thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, while also developing healthy coping strategies for the future.
Group and individual counseling sessions may utilize evidence-based therapies including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and more. While individual therapy focuses on your specific needs and treatment progress, small group processing sessions may focus on a variety of different topics, including:
- Substance abuse education
- Coping skills
- Stress management
- Relapse triggers
- Relapse prevention
- Family and relationship issues
- Conflict resolution
- Healthy communication
Our San Antonio PHP also features holistic healing therapies that promote relaxation, mindfulness, and a reduction in cravings. These therapies include yoga, art, music, meditation, and others.
Throughout treatment, our clinical team will work closely with you to assess your evolving needs and tailor your treatment plan accordingly. When you are ready to leave treatment, you may step down to a lower level of care by going to our intensive outpatient program (IOP) or outpatient program (OP).
