Nationwide Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) For Substance Abuse

Partial Hospitalization Program PHP is a medical term. It’s not what it sounds like. PHP patients typically spend 5-6 hours per day participating in psychotherapy groups, recreational therapy and educational groups in a comfortable setting, not a Hospital Building where surgeries are performed.

A Partial Hospitalization Program, or PHP program, is an addiction treatment program designed for individuals who benefit from structured programming but do not require 24-hour supervision or medical assistance. This level of care provides for partial hospitalization or day treatment services, and is sometimes referred to as a “day program”.

At Beginnings Treatment Centers the person utilizing the PHP program may stay at home, or in a structured sober environment, but does not need constant monitoring and so does not reside in the Residential Treatment Program facilities.

What To Expect at a Partial Hospitalization Program

Our partial hospitalization program specializes in dual diagnosis and addiction disorders for individuals who can still safely manage in a home living environment. This setting allows clients the opportunity to participate in addiction treatment throughout the day, while still living independently.

A Caring Staff

Our highly-credentialed drug addiction treatment team makes up the core of our treatment programs, providing caring, empathetic support through every step of your journey. From licensed nurses to our doctors and Ph.D. support staff, we offer qualified and experienced staff to support each client’s journey to recovery.

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment

Beginnings Treatment offers specific support for dual-diagnosis treatment. Clients suffering from mood or personality disorders alongside their substance-use disorder require special care, additional therapy, and more attention during treatment to ensure that we can treat each problem from a top-down level, tackling the issues that are most pressing first, to ensure a full recovery.

Behavioral Therapy

Behavioral therapy is one of the key evidence-based treatments for addiction. Behavioral therapy is designed to help individuals recognize attitudes and behaviors underlying, surrounding, and being caused by substance abuse. It also helps individuals to rebuild new behaviors and coping mechanisms, creating the foundations for prolonged recovery and a happy life. The most common behavioral therapies for addiction include CBT, EMDR, Family Therapy, and Motivational Therapy.

Complementary Therapies

Beginnings Treatment uses complementary therapies such as exercise programs, mindfulness therapy, and nutritional therapy as well as others as we see fit. These complementary therapies are not intended as primary addiction treatment, but rather to support existing treatment by improving the physical health, nutrition, or energy-levels of the client.


Education is a core-focus at Beginnings Recovery. We offer lectures, workshops, and training so that every client understands their disorder, relapse, and has the knowledge to respond appropriately to cravings, stress, and other problems.

Medical Support

Individuals require varying levels of medical support including medical monitoring, prescription medication, and sometimes medical intervention. This is provided on a need’s basis.


Counseling allows individuals to seek out treatment and share problems in a one-on-one or group setting, aimed at giving clients the tools to tackle specific problems, to share emotions, and to move past trauma.

Complementary Therapies

Group therapy is designed to help individuals share with their peers, work past issues as a group, and tackle emotions with a group of peers. This may include therapy with a specific goal such as stress management. Group therapy is a support tool where you can learn coping, to manage cravings, and to handle changes, with support from peers.
