Partial Hospitalization Program and Outpatient Rehab

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) Denver, Colorado

At Continuum Recovery Center of Colorado, we recognize that not everyone has the time, resources, or desire to stay at a rehab facility twenty-four hours a day, 7 days-a-week. For this segment of the population, it often makes sense to consider a partial hospitalization program (PHP) or outpatient treatment program here in Denver, Colorado. Both of which offer many of the same benefits of inpatient rehab but on an outpatient basis. This allows you to get the care you need while returning home to your own bed in the evening.

The question is often asked: will a PHP or an outpatient treatment program be effective with severe addictions? The answer is often, Yes! Except in cases where detox for alcohol or certain narcotics is warranted, many people find that these types of outpatient services give them the kind of immersive and holistic experience because the therapeutic approach is the same.

What To Expect During a Partial Hospitalization Program

Our outpatient treatment in Denver requires individuals to come to the facility a few times per week for a few hours at a time. During this time, clients will engage in evidence-based therapies and continue to forge their path towards recovery. Depending on the schedule, clients may come to the facility after work or before they head out to begin their day.

When they are here, clients will have the opportunity to participate in individual psychotherapy with their therapist as well as engage in group counseling. During both of these sessions, clients can work on issues closely personal and specific to them, while also addressing issues that are commonly shared among most while in group counseling. Individual therapists can also provide certain types of therapies based on our clients needs (such as cognitive behavioral therapy or motivational interviewing). Outpatient treatment Denver, like partial hospitalization programs, can last anywhere from four to six weeks. 

Who are Partial Hospitalization Programs – PHP – For?

Our PHP and outpatient treatment programs are designed for many types of people who are struggling with a substance use disorder. Prior to enrolling an individual into one of these programs, we consider the following factors:

  • The amount of alcohol or drugs typically consumed
  • How long the problem has lasted
  • The current living situation
  • Underlying health issues

These factors help us determine the severity of one’s substance use disorder, allowing us to properly place them in a PHP or outpatient treatment program. These types of programs are ideal for those individuals who:

  • Do not have a medical need for detox 
  • Do not require the level of care provided through inpatient treatment programs
  • Have the ability to dedicate a large portion of their time to recovery
  • Are able to maintain a healthy life outside of treatment

Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient rehab in Denver is certainly similar to our partial hospitalization program, but there are specific qualities about it that make it unique. For starters, outpatient rehab does not require as great of a time commitment as a PHP does. It also focuses on providing a less intense level of care, as those who participate in this program likely do not need a fully hands-on approach to treatment.

Outpatient rehab Denver works to help individuals reclaim their lives from substance abuse. We pride ourselves on being able to aid clients in achieving their recovery goals. Whether it is their first or fifth time in the program, we are here to help.

What To Expect During Outpatient Rehab

Clients of our outpatient rehab Denver come to the facility a few times per week. During that time, they might engage in individualized one-on-one therapy sessions, group counseling, or other therapies or activities pertinent to their recovery plan. Like a partial hospitalization program, outpatient rehab lasts around 4-6 weeks, depending on the needs of the client. 

Who is Outpatient Rehab For?

Outpatient rehab Denver is ideal for those individuals who require a level of treatment greater than what they can get from their personal therapists office and local support groups. It is not for those who have severe, repeating substance use disorders. This also includes those who need to undergo a medical detox. Instead, outpatient rehab is ideal for those individuals who:

  • Have a mild to moderate substance use disorder
  • Are still functional in their lives but need help with their substance abuse
  • Can maintain their wellbeing outside of treatment 
  • Have already completed higher-level programming, such as inpatient treatment or a PHP
  • Have suffered a relapse and need a refresher in order to get back on track with their recovery
