Partial Hospitalization Program
Partial hospitalization is a type of treatment designed for patients who are moving from inpatient care or who need more intensive treatment than our standard outpatient program for a range of conditions. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the number of hours the patient spends at the facility.
Patients in the partial hospitalization program (PHP) meet for four treatment hours each day, five days per week for two to six weeks, depending on progress and needs. Our program is designed to serve two types of patients:
- Those who are making the transition from inpatient care to the community
- Those who are already in an outpatient program but need more intensive counseling to keep them from regressing to the point they need to be hospitalized
Therapies to Meet Treatment Goals
The Floyd Behavioral Health Partial Hospitalization Program primarily uses group and family therapy, but also includes individual sessions when necessary to meet treatment goals. Counselors also help family members understand their own hurt and anger, and show them how they can support their loved one on the path to recovery. The program is overseen by a psychiatrist who helps in planning an individualized treatment program to meet the needs of each patient. Transportation is available for our partial hospitalization program and a meal is provided to patients in the program.
Mental Health and Substance Abuse Program
Our combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom originates – either from a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse, so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in identifying symptoms to keep treatment on track.
The Adult Mental Health and Substance Abuse Partial Hospitalization Program is a day program. The hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Transportation is provided within the service area as well as a meal.
Opioid Addiction Treatment Center
Our highly-trained therapists specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. We treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. Typically combining both physical with mental and emotional support, we work together to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support, including medication, and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.
The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence, but this can be very difficult. Those with poor social support, poor motivation or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse after treatment. For those with relapse tendencies, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health and improved social functioning. Recovery and maintenance are usually based on 12-step programs and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings.
