At Options Behavioral Health, we recognize that healing from a mental health concern or substance abuse problem does not happen overnight. While our patients make great strides in their healing journeys through participating in inpatient care at our treatment center, ongoing support is often key to lasting healing. Additionally, we know that there are many situations in which an individual’s needs do not require the intense nature of inpatient treatment. For these reasons, we are pleased to offer a partial hospitalization program in Indianapolis for men and women aged 18 and older.
What is Partial Hospitalization Programming?
Partial hospitalization programming (PHP) is a form of outpatient treatment that is more concentrated than traditional outpatient counseling, yet is less intensive than the care provided in the inpatient treatment setting. In PHP, participants attend a full day of programming, and then return to their homes in the evening. Depending on the person, the symptoms that he or she is experiencing, and any previous treatment history, the duration of his or her time in the partial hospitalization program will vary.
PHP offers both structure and support as participants develop, or continue to develop, new skills and learn new methods of coping with their concerns outside of the treatment environment. The combination of clinical services and independent living promotes a healthy transition out of treatment, while also assisting participants in establishing a solid foundation on which they can pursue successful long-term recovery.
As is true for all levels of care at Options Behavioral Health, the features that are included in our partial hospitalization program are fully customized for each participant. Each person’s unique strengths, needs, and goals are taken into account as our staff creates an individualized treatment plan that will guide him or her throughout his or her time in the program.
Group therapy is the primary treatment modality used in the partial hospitalization program, providing participants with a safe space where they can process through their experiences and discuss any concerns that may be weighing on them. In this setting, men and women also benefit from being able to give and receive support to and from peers who may be experiencing similar circumstances.
In addition to group therapy, individual therapy, which involves one-on-one sessions with a primary therapist, and various other interventions may be incorporated into the participants’ personalized treatment plan when clinically appropriate.
The partial hospitalization program at Options Behavioral Health is offered five days a week, Monday through Friday.
