Atlanta Partial
Hospitalization Program

A Bridge Between Inpatient and Outpatient Care

Partial Hospitalization

Partial Hospitalization (PHP)/Day Treatment is a structured, full-day treatment program for adults with alcohol and drug addiction that serves as a bridge between inpatient and outpatient programs. Many patients enter the partial hospitalization program immediately following detox. Our faith-based PHP continues the intensive therapeutic work begun in an inpatient setting and allows individuals to focus solely on their recovery, develop a recovery support system and build the skills needed to live a successful life in sobriety.

Our PHP Program helps treat:

  • Individuals with all types of drug addiction including, prescription drugs, opioids, cocaine, amphetamines, heroin and more.
  • Individuals with alcohol addiction and dependence.
  • Co-occurring mental health disorders including, depression, bi-polar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety disorders, panic disorder and schizophrenia.

A Full Schedule of Recovery Programming

Unlike a residential setting, the advantages of a partial hospitalization program combine full-day, comprehensive, faith-based rehab with the flexibility to head home at the end of the day. Our full day program offers six hours of addiction treatment and recovery programming Monday to Friday. PHP is a time for newly sober patients in the early stages of recovery to put their full attention on healing, while still living at home.

While these individuals have demonstrated that they’re ready for a less structured level of care, they benefit from ongoing support as they put new skills to the test in the world outside of treatment. By staying in regular contact with the clinical team, individuals in recovery can receive guidance, advice and immediate help should they feel at risk of relapse.

In group therapy and the Continuing Care/Aftercare Group, individuals also create friendships and build bonds with other individuals who are committed to sobriety and living a Christian lifestyle. These healthy, sober friendships are an important source of support for years to come.

PHP/Day Treatment services and activities include:

  • Individualized treatment planning.
  • Morning prayer, meditation or worship.
  • Daily group therapy to get past lingering denial, to learn new ways of interacting with others, to get more comfortable with expressing emotions and to build a network of like-minded peers to support recovery.
  • Weekly appointments with a physician.
  • Assistance with medication management.
  • Family therapy sessions to begin to repair damaged relationships and to provide the support that family members need to heal.
  • Multifamily group therapy, bringing together other families to share experiences, perspectives and fellowship.
  • Recreation therapy to learn new ways of enjoying free time that don’t involve substance use.
  • Exercise for stress relief and to restore physical well-being.
  • Random urine drug screens.
  • Nutrition counseling to correct nutritional deficiencies that may have occurred due to long-term drug and alcohol abuse.

How PHP Helps Those in Recovery

Many people who have completed a detox or inpatient program may not be ready to fully assimilate back into their day-to-day lives. The temptation to give in to cravings and triggers may be too risky, yet they may also desire the comfort of their own home. A partial hospitalization program is ideal for those who need to continue intensive therapeutic work and close medical management, but do not require overnight stays.

Other benefits of a PHP program include:

  • The ability to return home at the end of the day, allowing you to maintain and strengthen your connection with family members and loved ones.
  • A less restrictive environment than an inpatient setting that offers the freedom to put into practice and demonstrate new life skills.
  • Allows you to benefit from access to the larger community while still being immersed in your recovery treatment.
  • Prepares you mentally, emotionally and physically for the next phase of outpatient care.
  • Forges and nurtures strong relationships and lasting friendships with other peers in the PHP program who have walked a similar path.

PHP is a good option for those who:

  • Are not at risk for self-harm
  • Need close medical management, but do not require round-the-clock, 24-hour medical care.
  • Have demonstrated enough skills and are emotionally and physically stable enough to avoid relapse and function at home for part of the day.
  • Have strong family support and a healthy, stable home environment.

Faith-Based Rehab that Incorporates a Christian
12-Step Recovery Program

Addiction takes a devastating toll not just mentally, emotionally and physically, but also spiritually. Restoring your faith and relationship with God is a fundamental and essential part of the healing process. As part of our partial hospitalization, faith-based rehab program, individuals participate in 12-step recovery meetings at a house of worship. These group meetings are key to developing a recovery support system that fosters connections and friendships with those who have traveled a similar path.

Along with individual counseling, group therapy in PHP focuses on the first three 12-steps. The first three principles of the Christian 12-Step Recovery Program include: admitting that life has become unmanageable due to a drug and alcohol problem, believing in the power of God and making a decision to turn oneself over to God’s care.

Incorporating a faith-based treatment approach into our partial hospitalization program offers many benefits for those in recovery, including:

  • Balances the mind, body and spirit.
  • Decreases the chances of relapse.
  • Reduces stress, anxiety and depression through the healing power of prayer.
  • Keeps you committed to recovery and offers strength and God’s protection when faced with addiction triggers.
  • Helps expand your support network with other Christians when attending worship groups.
  • Provides a sense of peace and hope while motivating you to do the recovery work necessary to stay on your recovery path.
  • Encourages forgiveness and helps mend and strengthen your relationship with family and loved ones.
  • Reinforces your faith and reconciles your own relationship with God.

Life After PHP

As you grow stronger and healthier in your recovery, you will need to move on to the next phase of your treatment when you are ready to leave the partial hospitalization program. Our faith-based PHP program prepares you with all of the life skills and tools necessary to transition to a less intensive outpatient program and allows you to return to your everyday life.Your recovery work will still include key activities such as individual counseling, group counseling, Christian 12-Step Recovery Program meetings, worship and fellowship groups and a continued close connection with your recovery team. Recovery is an ongoing process that requires lifelong management and care. Aftercare planning and preparation will be a part of all phases of your recovery, and will help prevent relapse and ensure you stay on your path when you move to a less rigorous treatment program.
