Atlanta Recovery Place is located in Atlanta, Georgia, and offers a partial hospitalization program, also known as PHP, for struggling drug addicts and alcoholics. A partial hospitalization program provides intensive care for substance abuse and mental health. The biggest benefit of our program is we don’t require clients to live onsite for the duration of their addiction treatment.
How to Treat Addiction
A combination of treatments and therapies have been proven to help struggling addicts overcome their addiction. Whether you’re addicted to alcohol, heroin, cocaine, prescription drugs, or other street drugs, a partial hospitalization program can help you with your addiction today! Addiction treatment is a crucial component of overcoming substance abuse. Don’t feel like you have to battle addiction alone.
Our staff at Atlanta Recovery Place develops an individualized treatment plan that incorporates an evidence-based approach for all of our clients upon arrival. Evidence-based means no guessing and is a conscientious problem-solving approach to addiction. Our staff makes daily informed decisions about our client’s progress and care.
During our partial hospitalization program, we utilize the following addiction treatment therapies:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- 12-step support groups
- Peer support
Your first day at our program will include an intake session. During this time you’ll let our staff know the extent of your addiction so we can put together a treatment program that will best benefit you. You’ll then spend several hours a week at our facility undergoing treatment. You’ll have the opportunity to figure out the cause of your addiction and what you can do in the future to remain sober. You will also be able to form relationships with other addicts seeking recovery.
Advantages of Partial Hospitalization Programs
There are numerous advantages to attending a partial hospitalization program for addiction treatment. First and foremost, our partial hospitalization program provides the same intensive addiction treatment as an inpatient program but doesn’t require you to live at the facility. It is considered to be a step down from residential inpatient treatment and a great option for anyone who needs help but can’t commit to an inpatient program. By attending a partial hospitalization program, you spend the day focusing solely on your recovery and get to go home to your own house at night. This is a great treatment option for anyone who has a safe, comfortable home, or someone who lives with other people who are supportive of their recovery. If you have pets or other personal obligations you can’t leave for an extended period of time, a PHP is the best option for you.
Being able to receive addiction treatment while also living your life can be very beneficial. You’ll learn how to cope with addiction while still being responsible for life tasks like cleaning the house and making dinner for yourself at night and your children. Combining your world with treatment addiction makes for a smoother transition back into the ‘real world’ after you finish treatment.
A partial hospitalization program will also help you establish routine. It’s very common for drug addicts and alcoholics to live a life of chaos. It’s hard to incorporate routine when you’re constantly impaired. The lack of structure often affects multiple aspects of an addicts life and leads them to lose their job or friends and family. By attending a partial hospitalization program, you’ll learn what it’s like to have structure again. You will be responsible for showing up to treatment everyday. Having to hold yourself accountable for getting to treatment everyday will help you in the future when you need to seek and maintain employment or reestablish relationships.
