Recovery from substance abuse and drug addiction is often a complicated, layered process. As you emerge from the depths of extreme addiction into a renewed, healthy lifestyle, it becomes possible to enjoy the freedom of living at home and remain connected to your recovery support groups and personal treatment network.

Partial hospitalization practice was called a “critical” component of the restoration of mental health by The National Association of Psychiatric Health Systems.1

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

Partial hospitalization program (PHP) is also commonly referred to as “intensive outpatient treatment” and provides vital, attentive care at least five days a week for up to six hours a day. The program also includes, at a minimum, one session of individual, group or family psychotherapy and two or more other therapy services. The goal of PHP is to provide services in a highly supported environment for patients who are at the point in their recovery where they do not need constant supervision and monitoring.

How PHP Works

PHP serves as a step down from inpatient care but is still more focused than traditional outpatient care. As patients at Dana Point Rehab Campus progress in their treatment, they’ll move from our inpatient, resident program into partial our hospitalization program. For example, some people who may be battling chemical dependency do not need the intensive, round-the-clock supervision of our inpatient medical detox program. However, based on their treatment plan it’s been identified that they will benefit from a structured outpatient setting.

Why PHP Works

Being immersed in the nurturing environment of Dana Point’s residential treatment facility makes the process of uncovering, learning, teaching, practicing and reinforcing new healthy habits more effective in the long run. As patients are able to build these essential skills with the direction of our highly trained staff, and a supportive recovery community, use of these skills begins to feel natural, and patients feel more confident in their sobriety.

The most potent aspect of our partial hospitalization program is the transformation each patient experiences. They replace a life of fear, uncertainty, secrecy and chaos with the safe, supportive and peaceful surroundings at our Dana Point Rehab Campus. It’s here where our patients find themselves in a calm environment conducive to healing that encourages them to rest their body and mind, recalibrates their outlook on life and find ways to care for themselves again.

PHP Helps Maintain Early Progress

While there is more freedom in a partial hospitalization setting, the program still provides patients with the same dedicated treatment and access to our professional staff on a daily basis. Support groups, including individual, group, and family therapy sessions, are all a part of their ongoing treatment regimen. While learning to maintain the early progress they’ve made with their initial detox and rehab treatment program, with PHP, it’s another step forward learning to live on their own again or back at home with their family.

With this new freedom comes added responsibility and possible temptation. Our partial hospitalization programs help patients manage and resist cravings, manage their roller coaster of emotions, and improve social and interpersonal relationships so they can build a better future.

Patients in PHP will apply and adapt what they’ve learned in their rehab treatment sessions to real-world situations, such as:


  • Resuming school or professional life
  • Interacting with family and friends who support your healthy, clean lifestyle
  • Resisting all temptation to use drugs or alcohol

At Dana Point Rehab Campus, we offer a safe place to heal from past traumatic experiences, talk about setbacks, plan for the future, and feel hopeful and whole once again.

Dana Point Rehab Partial Hospitalization Program Details

Medication Management

For most Dana Point Rehab Campus patients, mental health or behavioral health disorders are comorbid to their addiction and substance abuse. These people will likely benefit from having certain psychotropic medications prescribed during their treatment. Throughout PHP, patients will regularly meet with a psychiatrist and qualified nursing staff member to help regulate and manage these medications.

Group Counseling

Group counseling is a vital element of PHP. The program requires face-to-face sessions with one or more counselors, who facilitate individual and group therapy. In addition to other PHP and resident patients, group counseling may also include a spouse, parents, or any other significant people who are deemed valuable in their treatment and recovery process.

Individual Counseling

Your addiction counselor will help you identify and address specific issues in your life and then set goals and expectations for a healthy, full recovery. In these one-on-one sessions, patients discuss issues impacting and supporting their treatment plan and recovery. Like group therapy, individual counseling may include spouses, parents, and family members. Regular meetings with your counselor will keep you on track to achieve your goals and work through any distractions and issues that may pop up along the way.

Substance Abuse Education and Treatment

Understanding the underlying causes of alcohol and drug abuse, and knowing how these substances affect the body, are fundamental to long-term recovery. With Dana Point Rehab Campus, patients learn how addiction impacts and destroys their professional, social, and family relationships.

When examining the root causes and the effects of addiction, individuals gain a better understanding as to why it’s critical follow the personalized, supportive recovery plan put in place specifically for them.

Our substance abuse treatment plans are comprehensive, multifaceted, and administered by our masters-level clinicians. Unlike many cookie-cutter treatment programs of our competitors that use the same off-the-shelf treatment for every patient, our Dana Point Rehab Campus team develops individualized treatment plans to meet the recovery goals of each patient.

Other elements included in our PHP include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)
  • Dual-Diagnosis Program
  • Physical Activities & Recreation
  • Family Therapy
