In regards to the types of treatment we offer, JourneyPure Bowling Green provides two different types of treatment for clients: Partial Hospitalization Program Treatment and Intensive Outpatient Program Treatment.
Some clients may go through one program, others may do both. For example, a client may enter our PHP for 30 days and then step down to traditional IOP after that. If you aren’t sure what your insurance covers or for how long, one of our trained call intake specialists can help you verify what you need to know.
It’s very important to know the difference between the two programs. Let’s take a look.
Partial Hospitalization Program Treatment (PHP)
The client enters an intensive, short-term clinical treatment program. This type of treatment is a step below inpatient but a step above most outpatient programs. However, many of the inpatient hospital rules still apply.
People are typically referred to this type of program when they are experiencing strong psychiatric symptoms that might be difficult to manage but does not constitute round-the-clock care. Clients attend structured sessions during the day and evening, 5 days a week.
While participating during the day, they have the chance to interact with therapists, doctors, nurses, and others in the mental health field. The ultimate goal is to develop skills that help the individual manage their lives in a healthy, productive way.
The main benefit to PHP is that it operates as a hybrid of inpatient and outpatient treatment. In many PHP programs, the clients return home at night. But at JourneyPure Bowling Green, clients have the luxury of staying in our housing facility nearby. Upon entering our program, they sign a room and board agreement.
Instead of going home and having no access to help if they need it during over-night hours, they have the benefit of staying in a safe environment where a residential counselor is always nearby should they need one.
Intensive Outpatient Program Treatment (IOP)
The client enters a part-time but strict treatment program. IOPs are designed for individuals that do not require detoxification and are recommended for people who have not struggled with addiction for very long.
It’s also designed for those who have life commitments they can’t get out of in order to focus on full-time treatment. Clients will go through the program during the day and evening, then return home every night.
Sessions in an IOP program include group therapy as well as individual therapy, and education in the negative effects of addiction, withdrawal side effects, and how to re-enter the outside world at the end of treatment.
Benefits of IOPs include keeping top privacy with work colleagues, building a strong relationship with peers in the same program, and maintaining family relationships.
