Partial hospital program (PHP)

The Recovery Village partial hospitalization program (PHP) has evidence-based treatment, skill enhancement, and 12-step programming to improve a person’s ability to function in daily life. The PHP program offers onsite housing and access to staff 24 hours a day. Generally, PHP is for patients that have completed detoxification either at The Recovery Village or another detox facility.

Our clinicians perform a thorough assessment, to determine if partial hospitalization is an appropriate level of care.

When a client has met their goals in PHP, they would be considered for step-down to our intensive outpatient program (IOP).

A good candidate for the partial hospitalization program has:

  • Completed detoxification
  • The capacity to fully participate
  • A reasonable expectation of improvement
  • A good outside support system at home or in the community
