Partial Care Program
Our world is full of millions of people who long to end a life mired in drug and alcohol abuse. Addiction is cunning and baffling foe. It will assure us that we can handle the situation. Addiction will lie to us about how serious our situation is, or that our problem is somehow unique.
Alcoholism and drug addiction are diseases that try to convince us we do not have a problem, everyone else does. Each person’s circumstances may have slight differences, but one common denominator exists. The disease wants us dead.
So, what do we do when it appears that there is no hope? The first step is to understand that there is hope, and all we have to do is ask. Often, a newfound hope for addiction recovery begins with treatment.
There are varying levels of treatment depending on each individual situation. More serious and long-term substance abuse issues usually require more intense treatment programs. Mental health issues can also factor into the decision.
One type of addiction treatment that helps to address both transitional periods and mental health battles is a partial care program (PHP). Let’s talk about the circumstances you might think about, which could make a partial care recovery path a superb choice for you.
There are two aspects of partial hospitalization addiction treatment programs that can prove valuable. PHP is a powerful transitional tool for anyone who has completed an inpatient treatment program.
Partial care is also a viable alternative when residential inpatient treatment is not an option. Committing to the more structured and restrictive inpatient model may not work well under certain circumstances.
However, the level of addiction and degree of chemical dependency may require something beyond traditional outpatient treatment. PHP is also structured to handle mental health aspects of an addiction.
Invariably, mental health struggles are at the root of many addictive personalities. Sometimes these problems are a result of prolonged drug and alcohol abuse. Other situations are caused by chemical imbalances, or traumatic life experiences.
Partial care programs are especially equipped to handle these mental health problems. It is the difficult combination of these mental health problems with addiction that is the core focus of this program.
Partial care often include an even greater degree of intensity that a second level of outpatient treatment referred to as intensive outpatient programs (IOPs). Both the transitional bridge from residential treatment facilities and the mental health diagnosis are two important elements of a PHP for addiction treatment.
Because of the need for more diverse types of care, PHPs often require between five and seven days of commitment per week. A Partial Care Program has the ability to coordinate different aspects of your recovery with therapy that helps heal the mental health side of your addiction.
Secondary mental health problems that are frequently at the core of an addiction are uncovered through a process called dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis is a profoundly successful way to uncover and treat both mental health issues and addiction.
Without addressing both, the chances of sustained recovery can dramatically be compromised. It takes work on all issues, not just substance abuse. This outpatient setting works for people who need this extra level of intensity, but are unable or may not adapt well to an inpatient residential environment.
Millions of people battle substance abuse problems. If you feel you have a problem with drugs or alcohol, you’re not alone. Likewise, you do not have to fight this battle alone. There is help. All you have to do is to become willing to ask.
