What is a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)?

A PHP program is a level of rehab care for people entering recovery from drug or alcohol abuse. It has many similarities to the care received by someone in a residential treatment center. The big difference is that PHP is an outpatient care program. This means the person can live in their own home while attending treatment sessions during the day. PHP is the highest level of outpatient care program available and requires attendance at therapy sessions more often than at the other levels. The next lower level is intensive outpatient programs (IOP) and below that level are regular outpatient programs (OP). 


PHP programs provide structure and integrate multiple treatment approaches that prove successful in teaching people to recover from addiction. Once someone has completed PHP, they often transition to a lower level of outpatient care in order to continue successfully staying sober.


How Does Our PHP in Nashville Work?

When someone comes to us for treatment, we get to know them personally so we understand their exact needs when it comes to treatment. We provide a vast array of therapies that help people overcome substance use disorders. We monitor each person as they move through the PHP program and make any necessary adjustments to their treatment plans. Our strict guidance allows each person to heal under the watchful eye of doctors, nurses, and therapists.

When someone stops abusing drugs or alcohol, they experience withdrawal symptoms. We provide FDA-approved medications that help ease these symptoms and make the initial stages of recovery easier to endure. If the person also experiences mental health disorders, such as anxiety or depression tied to their addiction, we can provide medications to help treat those symptoms, too. We also offer additional levels of care for those who want to step down once Partial Hospitalization Programming is over.

Partial Hospitalization

is a full-time commitment for a reason. This program is for individuals who need significant structure in the journey toward recovery. Our Partial Hospitalization Program offers a stable schedule for you to focus on your recovery and to get the help you need.

Intensive Outpatient

offers therapeutic support with fewer restrictions than our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). IOP enables you to continue your recovery therapies on a part-time, intensive schedule designed to accommodate your work, school and family life.

Outpatient Program

provides our clients sustained support once they have completed either our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) including weekly one-on-one & group sessions.

How Nashville Treatment Solutions Can Help

Who is Good Candidate for a PHP Program?

Because there are multiple types of programs for addiction, a person may not know which one will be the best fit for them. A thorough assessment will be done prior to admittance to a program in order to know which one is the ideal choice. When it comes to a PHP program, an ideal candidate often fits the following criteria:

  • They have either completed a residential program or do not need to attend one
  • They need more structured, time-intensive care than IOP or OP can provide
  • Someone who can commit to attending sessions several hours per day on several days per week
  • Those who have a stable and safe home environment they can live in while they attend treatment during the day
  • Someone with a dual diagnosis


While PHP and IOP programs have a lot in common and are only one step apart in terms of outpatient care, they do have differences. They both provide treatment approaches like multiple types of counseling, medication management, and flexibility in being able to still take care of personal responsibilities. 

The main difference is the amount of time a person must be willing to commit to either program. PHP usually requires attending 30 hours or more per week at several different types of therapy sessions. These take place from five to seven days per week. On the other hand, IOP requires somewhere between nine and twenty hours per week. Sessions take place three to five days per week.

Benefits of a PHP Program

Although PHP programs do take up a lot of time in a person’s weekly schedule, it still allows them the ability to live in their own homes. This provides them with access to loved ones who can provide support for them. 

We employ a highly trained staff of clinicians who use their years of experience to help people overcome their addictions to drugs or alcohol. Our staff understands how to treat people with dignity and compassion, which lets them feel more at ease opening up and embracing the healing process. Our PHP plan brings out the best in people and helps them improve both their physical and mental health.
