Partial hospitalization (PHP) is a form of a structured program sitting in the realm of outpatient services that is viewed as an alternative (and less costly) to inpatient. It is a higher level of care than typical outpatient services but less intense than formalized inpatient.
This programming is offered throughout the day for 6-8 hours, but does not require oversight throughout the night. Clients seeking this level of care are often engaged in sober living with oversight throughout the community.
Things often not included in the cost of stay:
- Transportation to and from living environment to treatment environment
- Support groups
- Job Training
