Partial Hospitalization Program
Therapy sessions and groups are an important part of recovery. At Southeast Addiction, we hold sessions daily due to this fact. The sessions we hold are focused on providing a more intimate setting for therapy to take place; we also offer gender-specific groupings.
The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) in Georgia is designed around emulating a realistic setting for those who are coming in for treatment. We know that our patients come from many different circumstances, and so we pride ourselves on giving each person a customized treatment plan that is sure to fit in with their specific needs in order to sustain recovery.
Clients involved in the Partial hospitalization program will be required to attend several hours of group therapy sessions daily. Because this is an intensive program, the patient must have already been through a medical detox to achieve the initial stability that is required to benefit from therapeutic work.
Partial Hospitalization Program for substance abuse consists of four key components:
Individual therapy is something that is extremely important for those in recovery to have. One on one therapy time can be used to discuss any issues that you are facing with professionals who intimately understand what you are going through. You can discuss how treatment is progressing, lifestyle difficulties you are experiencing, the temptation to relapse, etc. Anything you wish to discuss privately that you feel reluctant to mention in group therapy can be discussed here.
Group therapy is a place where individuals can come together and share their differing but similar experiences with battling addiction. Listening to others discuss their struggles can be a potent reminder that you are not alone. An important function of group therapy is also to show that everyone has different triggers. With the help of a skilled group therapy coordinator, a great deal of meaningful discussion and personal revelation can be had within groups.
Addiction does not stop with the individual. It is systemic, it affects every part of that individual’s life: work, school, friends, and of course family. The impact that addiction has on the family system is incalculable. We at Southeast Addiction understand that it is just as important to treat the family as it is to treat the individual.
There are forms of support that only family can offer, but that can only be achieved if they are properly coached on what truly will help and what will only enable their loved one further. We are always available to family members for in-person or online consultation so that they can stay in the loop on their loved one’s progress.
Because addiction is often accompanied by other co-morbid conditions such as depression or anxiety, those who are suffering from addiction are recommended to visit a psychiatrist to be diagnosed for any comorbid conditions. This will be a boon to entering recovery as issues such as general anxiety disorder, depression, or other mood related disorders can be a potentiator for addiction triggers or maladaptive coping mechanisms.
Being able to properly medicate those issues can go a long way in creating the necessary mental clarity and acuity that will aid the patient in achieving wellness.
PHP is specifically designed with individualized treatment plans for each client including one-on-one therapy, case management, and 12-step program immersion so that our clients have the tools they need for long-term sobriety.
