Partial Hospitalization Program in Georgia


Addiction doesn't wait.

Take your first steps towards addiction recovery with Serenity Grove.

When you are unable to commit to a residential treatment program, a PHP (partial hospitalization program) in Georgia at Serenity Grove could be the ideal option for you. Our PHP programs provide treatment for alcohol, substance use, and mental health disorders, as well as co-occurring disorders. Our compassionate team offers personalized and comprehensive PHP treatment plans customized to your specific needs for sustained recovery and a healthier future. 

What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)?

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a step-down level of care from a residential or inpatient treatment program. PHPs still provide a highly structured and intensive treatment modality with the flexibility of returning home in the evenings or to a sober living facility. During the day, people participate in various types of therapies to address their specific addictions,  mental health issues, or co-occurring disorders.  

PHPs are ideal when transitioning from a residential program. They are also for individuals who do not require the round-the-clock care and supervision found in inpatient programs but still need a highly structured and intensive treatment setting.

How Does Our Partial Hospitalization Program in Georgia Work?

You can expect compassionate and comprehensive treatment in a caring, supportive, and safe environment from our PHP in Georgia. All of our clients will complete an initial intake assessment and evaluation unless they are transitioning from our resident program. 

This detailed assessment helps us gather details about you, your alcohol and drug use, or mental health issues and concerns. We also discuss your family history and your treatment objective and goals. Working collaboratively with you, we develop your personalized treatment and care plan.

Next, we set up a schedule that includes various evidence-based and holistic therapies, activities, and other support services based on your specific needs. Your plan could also include medication management and MAT (medication-assisted treatment) when appropriate. 

You will follow a highly structured daily schedule, which includes time for breaks and lunch. At the end of each treatment day, you are free to go home or to a supportive sober living facility. As you near the end of your partial hospitalization program in Georgia, we work with you to create an effective aftercare plan that could include ongoing therapies, support groups, and other related services to help you maintain your recovery long-term.

A Typical Day in Our PHP in Georgia

Our PHP in Georgia meets Monday through Saturday and offers over 30 hours of therapeutic treatment, education, and care weekly. Sundays are free days, so you can relax at home, take care of personal responsibilities, attend church, or spend time with your family and friends. 

The day of the week can change what therapies, topics, and individual and group sessions you will have scheduled. Generally, a typical day could consist of the following:

  • 9:00 AM: Every morning, clients check into the PHP. The check-in process can involve an alcohol or drug screening, meeting for a brief therapy session, or socializing with peers. Check-in usually lasts about 30 minutes.
  • 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM: Clients will attend their own specific group therapy session led by one of our licensed therapists. The session’s topic will change, but people are encouraged to share and openly discuss what is covered that day. 
  • 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM: You will have a psychoeducation group session, which is a learning session. These sessions involve listening to a lecture or watching a video about the topic for the day. Topics can include learning more about addiction and mental health disorders, coping with uncomfortable emotions, and addressing relationship issues. 
  • Lunch Break: There will be an hour break for lunch. We provide healthy and nutritious meals that promote healing and recovery. During lunch breaks, you have the opportunity to interact with your peers and get to know each other better. 
  • Afternoon Session: After lunch, until the end of the day, usually around 3:30 PM, clients will alternate between various types of therapies. Some days may involve group CBT, while others could be group DBT. Other days may involve group holistic therapies, such as art therapy, yoga, mindfulness, or meditation.

Who Is a PHP Most Appropriate For?

Our PHP is most appropriate for our clients transitioning from our residential programs who still require a highly structured environment with intensive treatment. Our PHPs are also well suited for individuals who do not require 24/7 supervision of a residential program but could benefit from the structure and intensity level offered with this level of care. 

Partial Hospitalization Program Therapies

Some of the many therapies available with our partial hospitalization program in Georgia include:

  • Individual therapy: One-on-one confidential and private sessions with a counselor or therapist to learn more about underlying contributing factors, behaviors, and emotions related to addiction and mental health disorders, develop effective coping strategies, and replace negative behaviors with positive ones. 
  • Group therapy: Group sessions with one’s peers that provide opportunities to learn from shared experiences, develop and practice coping skills, build self-esteem and confidence, and learn more about addiction and mental health disorders. 
  • Family therapy: Family can be an essential part of recovery from addiction and mental health disorders. These sessions allow the family to rebuild damaged relationships, improve communications, establish healthy boundaries, and learn how to support their loved ones in recovery. 
  • MAT: Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can be used to help manage withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings, and address any mental health-related symptoms.

Are PHPs Effective?

PHPs can be highly effective at treating alcohol, substance use, and mental health disorders. They provide the same level of intensive and structured care as a residential program without having to reside at the treatment facility. However, PHPs may not be appropriate for individuals with severe addictions and mental health disorders, those who are a harm to themselves or others, or those without a stable and supportive home environment.
