Partial Hospitalization/Day Treatment Program (PHP) offers outpatient addiction treatment services, such as group counseling, individual therapy, family therapy and access to medical care, if needed. Guests attend clinical programming at the facility 5 days a week for about 4-6 hours each day, while still residing at home. PHP is a more intensive program than typical outpatient programs, which may only meet once or twice a week. This program is often used as a step-down service once someone has completed an inpatient program.
Intensive outpatient treatment program (IOP) offers outpatient treatment services for people with substance use disorders or co-occurring mental and substance use disorders who do not require medical detoxification or 24-hour supervision. This program is designed to establish psychosocial supports and facilitate relapse management and coping strategies. Guests attend clinical programming at the facility 3 days a week for 3-4 hours each day, while still residing at home. IOP is an alternative to our residential treatment program and is often used as a step-down from the residential or PHP level of care.
PHP and IOP levels of care are best for people who do not require 24-hour supervision, but who would still benefit from a high level of support. Guests entering PHP or IOP at Pearl of the Sea Retreat shall be in a stabilized state. Most individuals enter the PHP or IOP level of care upon completion of inpatient detoxification program and residential program; however, some individuals may forgo higher levels of care and enter directly into PHP or IOP. All guests shall be evaluated for an in-depth mental health assessment, and training shall be provided to all individuals to assist them in managing symptoms of their disorders. Before treatment services begin, the staff will conduct an intake evaluation, which they will use to develop an individualized treatment plan based on the person’s addiction and mental health condition. Individuals in PHP or IOP will participate in a comprehensive recovery program in which they work closely with many different treatment professionals, including doctors, nurses, social workers, therapists, and psychiatrists. This is not a longer-term, structured day program intended to achieve or maintain stability for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness.
