Struggling with the disease of alcoholism or drug addiction brings a great deal of unmanageability to a person’s life. Many health issues frequently come with addiction. If you’re experiencing medical issues as a result of your drug or alcohol addiction, a partial hospitalization program (PHP) in Florida can help you get on the road to recovery. Beaches Recovery has a partial hospitalization program as well as a residential drug rehab program. A PHP helps anyone who is having extended withdrawal symptoms or post-acute withdrawal syndrome.

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

A PHP is ideal for individuals who are stable enough to return home in the evening after treatment, but who still require a more intense program. A partial hospitalization program provides similar programs, therapies, and services that come with a residential program, but with the freedom to return home at the end of the day. A PHP can work in two ways. It can be a starting point for individuals who are unable to commit to a residential program. It can also be a step-down level of care for those coming from a higher level of treatment.

Before You Begin a Florida Partial Hospitalization Program

According to SAMHSA, Florida saw over 30,000 admissions for substance abuse treatment in 2015. These admissions were of individuals ages 12 and older and were collected by the Treatment Episode Data Set by Census region and division. 

Before addiction treatment can begin, most addicts need to go through some type of drug detox. You can use the services of our partner, Tides Edge Detox Center, for that part of treatment. After months and possibly years of drinking or using in excess, you become highly dependent on your substance. It takes some time for your body and brain to return to normal.

Once the initial stages of detox are complete, some of the symptoms of withdrawal can linger. These symptoms may include aches, pains, nausea, and more. However, with a partial hospitalization program for addiction treatment, you’ll get the care you need while you begin the rehab process.

This is also beneficial for those taking detox medications that have to be tapered off over time. The medical staff at the partial hospitalization program will be there to ensure that these medications are decreased properly.

Understanding Your Options for Levels of Care

Before you can determine if a partial hospitalization program is in your best interest, you must understand the different levels of care. In doing so, you are able to make a more educated decision on your care. Beaches Recovery provides the following levels of care: 


A detox center allows the client to remove the harmful substances from their body. This medically supervised process allows the individual to then continue the rest of their treatment plan with a clear mind. Since they are able to focus on their treatment and not on their cravings, the programs and services tend to be more effective overall.

Inpatient treatment program

An inpatient program is often the next step for those in need of addiction treatment. This higher level of care allows clients to fully immerse themselves in their plan to gain the most from their time spent at the facility. Here, they participate in a fully scheduled, structured day that includes meetings, therapy sessions, and other activities.  

Partial hospitalization program

A PHP can act as either a starting point for those unable to attend inpatient treatment or the next step of a comprehensive treatment plan. Clients will still participate in a highly structured and rigorous day but will have the ability to return home in the evenings.  

Intensive outpatient treatment program

An IOP is another step-down in a more complex treatment plan. During an IOP, clients still return home at the end of their day, but their overall treatment begins to lessen in intensity. The time spent in treatment begins to reduce in comparison to higher-level programs, and clients start to experience slightly more freedom.  

Outpatient treatment program

An outpatient program allows clients to begin integrating back home into their normal life. The time required at treatment continues to decrease as clients experience more freedom within their day. This allows them to attend to their daily responsibilities and begin to shape their schedule after treatment. 

Sober living program

 Sober living after treatment helps provide an additional level of structure and care before clients head home for good. Clients live in a sober living home and participate in meetings, chores, and work towards their goals before returning to their home full time.

Benefits of a Partial Hospitalization Program 

A PHP holds several benefits for those seeking addiction treatment. For those who are struggling with a less intense substance, a partial hospitalization program in Florida could be the ideal starting point. It allows them to receive the support they need for recovery, without needing to commit to residential treatment. This is also ideal for those unable to commit to residential care. Instead of being discouraged from seeking out treatment, they are able to participate in a PHP and remain in their home. They can begin treatment, knowing their responsibilities and commitments at home will not be left unattended while they receive the care they need to achieve recovery. 

For those ending a residential program, a partial hospitalization program provides another layer of structure before they return home for good. The risk of relapse is greater in those who immediately return straight home after residential treatment versus those who continue with a plan after they leave the facility.

Addiction Therapy Programs through PHP in Florida

Although your physical health is very important, addiction treatment programs are about looking at your mental health as well through various types of addiction therapy services. Some addicts suffer from a dual diagnosis, which means they have a mental health disorder along with their addiction. Dual diagnosis or past trauma can be some of the main reasons why a person continues to drink or use. So, you’ll be going through individual therapy to take a look at these issues so you can learn how to overcome them.

Along with individual sessions, you’ll also go through group therapy with other people who are trying to recover from addiction. Beaches Recovery understands that peer support is extremely important. We encourage you to build relationships with others in recovery. That way, you can have a strong support group when you leave our rehab. These are the people who you can rely on in your recovery when you’re having a rough day, and they’ll be relying on you too. By the time you leave the facility, you’ll have an assortment of tools that you can use to help you prevent relapse in the future.
