Understanding Your options in treatment

What Exactly is Partial Hospitalization?

A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a type of substance abuse treatment that caters to those needing a high level of care but a lower intensity than that of a fully inpatient program. It’s less restrictive (and less expensive) than residential rehab but still provides a high level of medical and psychological support. This combination of flexibility and ongoing support is one of the main reasons why PHP is such a popular drug rehab program.
At Freedom Health, our program is 5-6 days per week, 6 hours per day (the time commitment is comparable to that of a part-time job). Our program involves a combination of behavioral and holistic therapies, wellness education, recreational activities, and a higher level of psychiatric and medical support than outpatient treatment.

For those who require more flexibility, our IOP offers a compassionate care model whilst allowing individuals to maintain their daily responsibilities.

Outpatient Program

Our outpatient program is tailored to those who are transitioning from more intensive care or for individuals seeking support for emerging or manageable symptoms.

The Benefits of Attending a Partial Hospitalization Program in Massachusetts at Freedom Health

PHP can be used to treat any and all types of substance abuse disorders as well as co-occurring mental illnesses. It is the second highest level of care after inpatient and often the program of choice for those who diagnostically don’t meet the criteria for fully intensive care. However, many of those who have already completed residential treatment choose to continue with a partial hospitalization program because they still need help and the flexibility of partial hospitalization makes it an attractive place to begin addiction treatment.

Lower Costs
Clients do not live on-site at the facility. This makes PHP a much more affordable option than traditional inpatient care. It provides a supportive and immersive environment for a fraction of the cost of residential programs, ideal for those whose insurance only provides limited coverage or are paying for rehab fully out of pocket.
Freedom & Flexibility
Clients can choose their own accommodations while still participating in addiction treatment. Whether you opt to stay at nearby sober housing or perhaps commuting from your normal residence, PHP allows for maximum convenience. It also makes it easier to balance treatment with work and family responsibilities.
Supportive Transitioning
Individuals with severe addictions or co-occurring mental disorders (known as dual diagnosis) often require additional psychiatric support after their program is complete. PHP can continue providing medication management and access to additional psychiatric care. However, PHP is an excellent option for anyone who has already been through residential rehab but feels the need for high-level support.

What to Expect at Our Massachusetts PHP Program

Freedom Health employs a multi-disciplinary team of experienced mental health practitioners to provide treatment and facilitate groups. We keep group sizes small to help clients address their individual needs and get the attention they need. We are recognized as a licensed substance abuse treatment facility in the state of Massachusetts. We offer a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient (IOP) & Outpatient (OP) levels of care.

Process Groups

Process groups are safe environments in which Freedom Health clients can feel safe and supported to discover, uncover, and work through the underlying causes of their addiction with the help and support of their primary counselors. The intention of these groups is to help clients let go of their past, overcome their fears, and to improve authentic communication.

Comprehensive Assessments

Our program begins with a comprehensive bio-psycho-social assessment completed by our clinical staff. This assessment allows us to not only gain a deeper understanding of the specific needs of the client, but also supports our team in developing a more comprehensive and individualized treatment plan.

CBT Therapy Groups

Clients participate in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with their primary counselor in a group setting. CBT groups are evidenced-based and have been proven to be effective in substance abuse treatment. Freedom Health intends to assist clients in understanding the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behavior and gain insight into various techniques and interventions that promote change and growth.

Psychiatric & Medical Support

Clients in treatment often have a need for additional psychiatric support to address their ongoing psychiatric issues, medication management, and access to additional psychiatric care. Our staff will ensure that each client receives the psychiatric support needed throughout their treatment and mental health disorders are treated alongside their addiction. Clients will meet with our psychiatric nurse practitioner or medical director within the first week of admission.

Family Programming & Support

Family support and inclusion for addiction treatment is critical to the recovery program. We take pride in providing weekly progress updates. This is a time that can be arranged by families with the primary counselor. In this time, families can expect to get an update on the overall progress in treatment, and to have a platform to ask questions, and receive feedback and support.

Fitness & Nutrition

Freedom Health offers a comprehensive fitness and nutrition program for IOP clients. Our goal is improve healthy body image, lifestyle, weight management, and overall wellness using proven, science-based methods. Our Group Personal Training (GPT) programs will meet multiple times throughout the week. We request that participants attend at least one GPT sessions per week and one individual session every other week. We also provide weekly group presentations on topics including (but not limited to) nutrition, hormonal balancing, training methodologies, injury prevention.

Holistic Treatments

Holistic addiction treatment is an approach based upon the knowledge that sustained recovery can only occur when a person’s physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health are addressed. Freedom Health’s program includes various holistic approaches included chiropractic & massage therapy, yoga & mindfulness practices, experiential therapy, and nutrition & exercise education.

Vocational & Life Skills Training

We provide academic coaching and vocational support to help clients achieve their employment and educational goals. This includes working with clients to get signed up for classes, prepare for interviews, write resumes, manage work-related stress, and evaluate career plans. Our goal is to address areas of clients’ lives that may be causing stress and stagnation and work with them to improve these areas.

Freedom Health works as a liaison between the client and the court system, and advocates for the client’s needs outside of the treatment program. We address legal matters and provide solutions to achieve stability which allows clients to focus solely on their recovery while in treatment. A big part of recovery is cleaning up the wreckage of our past. Addressing these legal issues can provide a huge sense of relief for clients, allowing them to participate more thoroughly in their treatment and therapy process with ease.
