Before beginning a partial hospitalization program (PHP), it’s important to know what to expect. A person who is entering a PHP first needs to detox. Medical detox is always recommended for safety. As you consider what your life will be like during your time spent with Solution Based Treatment & Detox, it’s useful to have a sense of what your daily life will be like for a period of time while you learn new coping strategies and skills to manage your ongoing recovery process.

Preparing for Treatment in a PHP
Before beginning treatment, our team of medical experts will work with clients to create a personalized treatment plan. This treatment plan will address issues of both physical and mental health to address overall wellness.
Integrated treatment plans have gained traction in recent years as experts in the field have learned more about the importance of mental health and well-being for overall health and lasting recovery.
At SBT, our clients work one-on-one with mental health practitioners, including a certified Chemical Dependency Counselor as well as a licensed therapist, to address core issues that led to addiction and work on strategies and techniques to improve life skills.
A Typical Day in a PHP
When preparing for a partial hospitalization program, it’s useful to envision an average day in treatment.
Treatment at SBT is often 9:00 am to 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday, so clients should expect to put in a day’s work.
Weekly meetings with counselors are an essential part of monitoring clients’ mental health and the progress of their treatment plans.
A typical day in a PHP at SBT may include:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Medication management consultation
- A supervised educational outing to practice therapeutic strategies and techniques
It’s purposeful that there is a limited amount of idle time while in treatment. While it’s essential for clients to have time to reflect on what they have learned and assess their personal progress on their path to recovery, time spent onsite at SBT’s facility is meant to be maximized for positive outcomes and to avoid the pitfalls associated with idle time.
Harm Reduction Strategies for Lasting Recovery
Harm reduction is an essential part of the treatment and recovery process. Clients learn:
- Coping mechanisms to help navigate high-risk triggers in real-world situations
- How to avoid situations that might be considered self-sabotage
- When to reach out for assistance from friends, loved ones, or a sober sponsor
- The importance of attending regular sessions with a therapist after treatment
- Knowing when more assistance is needed to remain sober
A good therapist will monitor personal wellness and intervene if a client appears to have increased negative thoughts, cravings, or is putting themselves in problematic or risky situations that could lead to relapse.
Therapy and Recovery
Therapy sessions provide clients with an opportunity to learn about themselves and find new ways of framing their past and considering future potential.
At SBT, we offer evidence-based therapy options with proven results for those who struggle with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.
Not everyone knows that it’s extremely common for those with addictions to have a mental health issue that requires a dual diagnosis. Once properly diagnosed, it becomes easier to help clients address their personal issues and find the best possible approaches to developing a treatment plan for lasting recovery.
