Partial Hospitalization Program for Substance Abuse Disorders
Focus Treatment Center’s Partial Hospitalization Program provides comprehensive daytime treatment for individuals with a pattern of substance abuse or chemical dependency. Our treatment philosophy and practices are based on over 10 years’ experience in our longer-term addiction recovery services.
This highly structured and intensive treatment program is designed to support those with a primary diagnosis of chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health issues such as depression or anxiety while still allowing each patient to continue with his or her daily responsibilities such as work or school.
This program can serve as primary treatment for someone who is struggling with maintaining sobriety or as a continuing care option following completion of an inpatient / residential program.
The goal of the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is to assist patients in developing cognitive, emotional and behavioral coping skills to employ in their daily lives while having a supportive environment in which they can process these changes. Through therapeutic process groups, both an understanding of relapse warning signs and a strong relapse prevention plan are developed which ultimately leads patients towards long-term recovery.
The program uses evidence-based therapeutic models such as Process Groups, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Life Skills Training, and experiential and process groups facilitated by a Masters or PhD level mental health professional.
With our Whole Person Care approach, each patient receives an individual treatment plan designed to Address His or her own specific issues
Some examples of our daily skills training topics and strategies are:
Identifying triggers and managing cravings
Drug refusal skills
Assertive communication skills
Intensive group therapy
Stress management - breathing/meditation
Understanding 12 step component

The program consists of 6 hours of day-time programming Monday through Friday.
