When considering the appropriate level of care, it’s important to reflect on your personal circumstances at this time. Considerations may include the severity of addiction, housing situation, employment status, childcare obligations, detox requirements, and previous experience with treatment and recovery. Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) are a good option for those who will benefit from a strict daily treatment schedule and can safely return home at the end of each day. Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are suitable for those with previous experience in recovery treatment centers.

What Is an IOP?
In an intensive outpatient program (IOP), clients receive the same level of care as those who enter full-time inpatient programs but only spend a limited amount of time onsite. There are similarities and differences between a PHP and an IOP. Knowing which is the best for you, your loved one, and your family is essential for making the best possible decision when it comes to treatment.
Those who seek out or are encouraged to enter an intensive outpatient program have often already completed a residential detox and rehab program. After, a person or their loved ones may decide that more treatment and therapy would be beneficial. This is an opportunity to transition into an IOP. An IOP is typically considered the highest level of outpatient care when it comes to addiction and recovery. OT, outpatient treatment, is a step down for those with fewer needs.
After someone has successfully detoxed, they should be in a better headspace. An IOP can be a chance to continue more rigorous therapy sessions under the watchful eye of medical professionals in a secure and secure setting. In an IOP, the stakes are high, and so are expectations. Keeping this in mind, clients participate in an IOP on a part-time basis meaning they can continue certain aspects of everyday life. This can be positive as a person has more opportunities to practice what they have learned in treatment as they continue to evolve during the recovery process.
What Is a PHP?
In a partial hospitalization program (PHP), individuals put in the equivalent of a standard 9-5 workday while in treatment. Clients of SBT engage in individual therapy, group therapy, group activities, and have regular contact with a range of medical professionals to ensure they stay on the right track to meet the recovery goals outlined in their treatment plan.
A PHP is a step down from a residential or inpatient treatment program. Clients have an opportunity to return home at the end of the day. The opportunity to return home as well as to maintain certain work and family obligations is determined based on individual circumstances and personal progress in recovery.
It’s important to remember that the early stages of recovery post can often pose the most risks. Individuals remain susceptible to cravings and high-risk triggers. Staying onsite full-time at a treatment facility is a harm reduction strategy. Not all clients are best served by having the opportunity to return home at the end of each day of treatment if they live in housing circumstances that may lead to the potential for relapse.
Treatment and Recovery Goals
People seek treatment because they want a better life for themselves and their loved ones. Recovery is about second chances. It’s an opportunity to rebuild your life and mend damaged connections due to addiction.
Maintaining sobriety is hard work. The experts at Solution Based Treatment & Detox are committed to helping clients on their path to lasting sobriety. PHP and IOP are both valuable tools on the path to recovery. The right program involves meeting a person where they are in the present. You can only pivot from the here and now in order to begin to move forward.
