PHP / Partial Hospitalization

Partial Hospitalization

Midwood Addiction Treatment’s Partial Hospitalization provides intense and comprehensive treatment much like a Residential Inpatient Program, but in a comfortable clinical office setting during the day, and an optional relaxing, safe and supervised home-like residence in the evenings.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) are also known in North Carolina as Substance Abuse Comprehensive Outpatient Treatment (SACOT). This is the perfect blend to help a recovering addict who is coming out of detox or a residential program and is ready to focus on overcoming their addiction in a controlled, supportive environment.

How Partial Hospitalization Works

PHP offers people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction a lot of the same core treatment components as a Residential Inpatient Program, however with more freedom and the ability to attend outside activities. These programs can be just as, if not more effective than residential programs due to the more comfortable and friendly atmosphere that a less institutional program allows. Our Partial Hospitalization Program programs start with individual, needs and evidence-based, outcome-focused treatment plans created by our licensed and experienced clinical and medical staff.

PHP offers a perfect middle-ground for recovering addicts who are not yet ready to face the everyday challenges of life and want to be able to interact, share and grow in a safe, supervised community of people in the early stages of recovery who understand what they are dealing with. Our Partial Hospitalization Program is a great first-step program for people who are looking for something more supportive than a Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program (SAIOP), but less restrictive and structured than a Residential Inpatient Program. Upon completion of our PHP program, patients are normally stepped down to the Intensive Outpatient level of care.

Is our PHP right for you or your loved one?

While no one can make this decision for you, its best to consider what PHP is, how it works and what it offers to see if our program matches your needs. Some of the questions you can ask yourself are:

  • Do you want to have the comforts of home while still being supported by caring and qualified staff?
  • Do you want to have a life-changing experience in a program that offers a wide variety of state-of-the-art therapeutic and medical programs?
