Partial Hospitalization Program at Florida Springs

There are many different treatment options at Florida Springs Wellness and Recovery Center that can be tailored to an individual patient’s needs. The mission of the Florida Springs medical staff is to give every patient the best opportunity at achieving sobriety. Different needs of different patients require different treatment tracks and programs. Our partial hospitalization program in Florida is an intensive level of supportive medical treatment for patients who have successfully detoxed from substances of abuse. The biggest difference between residential and partial hospitalization treatment at Florida Springs is where the patient sleeps at night. Residential patients live in our facility 24 hours a day, and PHP patients do not have to stay at the facility if they have a safe home to which they can return. Whether a patient stays in our facility or leaves for home, PHP and residential treatment allow for patients to begin to transition back to daily life in a safe way that surrounds them with much needed support in early recovery. Patients who begin a PHP program at Florida Springs Wellness and Recovery Center should expect an intensive program of recovery from alcohol or drug addiction, including many hours of treatment programming each week and access to skilled medical personnel and therapy to ensure medical stability with the program and comfort on one’s chosen treatment path.

Take the Next Steps with Florida Springs PHP

Patients who must return home in some capacity after detox may greatly benefit from PHP. Residential treatment may not be required or recommended for everyone. Partial hospitalization is not an end to treatment, on the contrary, PHP is a serious step towards recovery designed for people who need serious help with addiction to drugs, alcohol, or both. PHP patients receive an extremely high standard of care, and this treatment level could be ideal for those transitioning from residential care to living at home. Some patients will be familiar with the term intensive outpatient program, and PHP can be described in that way, if it is understood that intensive is a key signifier that the treatment regimen requires a deep level of commitment from both patients and staff. There are situations where 28 days or more of residential treatment, where a person stays at a facility 24/7, is simply not possible. For both moderate and serious cases of substance use disorder, or addiction, wherein a person is unwilling or unable to stay overnight for an extended period because of previous commitments or children at home, our partial hospitalization program in Florida can offer a patient in these circumstances the benefits of a residential program without the necessity of staying at a facility 24 hours a day. This could be a saving grace for pregnant women who have another child or medical needs that preclude residential care, people who are absolutely unable to leave a job or other commitment for an extended period, or people who have an insurance or financial reason that PHP is preferable to a residential treatment option. Florida Springs Wellness and Recovery Center understands that many people have barriers to entering certain types of treatment that may be out of their control, and our intake counselors will work with you to evaluate all of your needs and options at the beginning of your journey.

A Critical Decision

The most dangerous time for many of our patients, whether coming from detox, residential treatment, or somewhere else, is the return home and the assumption of normal responsibilities. This period can bring back social contact with people, places, and situations that can be triggers for relapse and causes of significant stress. The process of returning to normal living circumstances is always easier when done with a treatment plan designed with the help of experts. Florida Springs staff can help you in your vital decision-making process, but we also provide all of the information that we can to inform people about the decisions they face. Many people in 12-step related programs will talk about “no big changes the first year.” Sometimes they say no big changes or decisions the first year of sobriety. This mantra simply refers to the fact that sobriety is fragile, especially at the beginning of the recovery process, so when we make changes we might want to opt for small changes or “baby steps” which are spread out over time. Partial hospitalization can be a bridge between residential treatment and some less intense therapy and treatment regimen, but we always recommend medical and professional help when making these sorts of treatment decisions, because sobriety is precious, and relapse is dangerous.
