Chemical Dependency Partial Hospitalization Program
Parkwood Behavioral Health System’s Partial Hospitalization Program for the chemically dependent person is designed for those who need more structure than occasional counseling or a typical outpatient program, but less structure than a residential treatment center. Examples of candidates for this program include someone who is stepping down from detoxification, a person who has attended some counseling or has tried handling the problem on their own, but the solution isn’t working. Additionally, a person that has been working with a counselor, therapist or health care provider and the respective professional thinks the person needs more structure. Upon that advisement, the clinician provides a referral to the program.
The Chemical Dependency Partial Hospitalization Program is held Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., and on Saturday and Sunday, from 1:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. This schedule can be more flexible for those who have work schedule conflicts.
Treatment includes group therapy, family therapy, individual therapy, and linkage to the AA or NA 12 step support groups.
The program has campus apartments if the patient needs somewhere to live while attending treatment due to distance issues from Parkwood. Anyone who lives in the campus apartment will also have food, transportation to and from treatment, and AA or NA, and utilities provided.
Program Mission and Philosophy
The mission of the Chemical Dependency Partial Hospitalization Program at Parkwood Behavioral Health System is to provide an evidence-based, individualized treatment program, based on the 12-step recovery process and the philosophy that addiction is a disease.
The Chemical Dependency PHP will help assist each patient in constructing a life that is physically, emotionally, spiritually, and vocationally healthy. This is addressed directly and through the referral process.
In The Chemical Dependency Partial Program each patient is evaluated and has an initial assessment. Then an individualized treatment plan is developed which identifies the patient’s areas of needs, goals, strengths and problems to be addressed.
Patients will receive professional care from a psychiatrist who will staff their case and consult during the psychiatrist’s rounds at the hospital. Each patient will also have an individual licensed therapist responsible for his or her therapy.
The Needs Assessment and Referral Center is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond promptly to calls or walk-in inquiries. For more information call 1-800-477-3422.
