Partial Hospitalization Program for Women Recovering from Addiction
Willow Place for Women offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for women suffering from substance abuse. This non-residential treatment is our most intensive treatment offered and allows women to completely immerse themselves in treating their drug and alcohol addiction. Otherwise known as day rehab, partial hospitalization programs keep you submerged into treatment during daytime hours to keep you fully focused on your addiction recovery. Providing everything that a recovering individual may need, partial hospitalization programs can help you heal from your addiction, learn coping strategies, and be prepared to live a life free from addiction.
What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?
Our PHP is a medically supervised program that offers structured clinical services in a safe, compassionate, and supportive atmosphere. This option allows our patients to attend treatment during the day to completely submerge themselves into addiction healing. Upon admission to our PHP program, each client is thoroughly evaluated for any underlying medical conditions, mental health issues, and a full drug and alcohol test is administered. When treating addiction, we strive to make sure all of the client’s other issues are treated simultaneously to make treatment as effective as possible. We believe that a person is not just their addiction, so their addiction is not the only thing that needs to be treated. Our patients are assessed as a whole so that underlying causes of addiction can be identified and addressed during treatment.

- 12-step Introduction
Our partial hospitalization treatment program is open to any woman that is addicted to alcohol, prescription medication, or illicit drugs. We understand that anyone can be addicted to drugs or alcohol, so we come up with multiple approaches to treating addiction. No matter who you are, what you do for a living, or how you’re involved in the community, The Willow Place for Women accepts all types of individuals seeking help for their addictions. Also, we know that addiction can affect people in different ways and that it is a disease for which treatment should be based on experience and needs. This is precisely why we come up with a comprehensive treatment strategy for each specific patient so that individual needs can be addressed.
Addressing the Underlying Causes of Addiction
Many women addicted to substances have done so as a result of trauma, mental illness, or self-medication for a physical issue. Whatever the reason, The Willow Place for Women recognizes the importance of determining the underlying causes of addiction so that a person can move forward with a life free from addiction. We take a cognitive behavioral approach to group and individualized therapy sessions so that patients can work to identify the reasons behind their drug or alcohol abuse. Taking a look at the underlying causes of addiction allows patients to properly understand their behaviors and learn to monitor them more closely. It also allows them to confront their problems head on so that they can begin the healing process.
Holistic Approach to Treatment
Along with therapy, The Willow Place for Women includes holistic approaches to treatment techniques, which are alternative approaches to traditional methods. Services like yoga, meditation, and biosound healing allow patients to become properly tuned with their body. Holistic medicine is about treating an individual for a disease by looking at the entire individual as one entity, contrary to just treatment of specific symptoms of that ailment. By approaching addiction treatment with a holistic lens, addiction treatment patients are treated in multiple aspects at once; mind, body, and soul. Addiction recovery is not simply about refraining from using drugs or alcohol, it is about learning a new way of life. Holistic approaches to treatment implement learning more about the self so that the individual in recovery can closely pay attention to imbalances in life so that they can better monitor their recovery progress.
Educational Approach to Treatment
We know that the chance of relapse in early recovery is high, which is why a large portion of what is focused on throughout the partial hospitalization program is education. We know the importance of educating our patients and their families on the disease of addiction so that a commitment to sobriety can be made and healing can begin. Additionally, we focus on implementing relapse prevention strategies so that recovering individuals are ready to deal with the stresses and temptations of the outside world without resulting in relapse. During this program, individuals in PHP will learn coping mechanisms, how to recognize relapse triggers, and how to get help if a relapse were to ever occur. Trauma education allows our patients that have undergone a traumatic event to be able to learn about how trauma is affecting them so that they can positively move forward throughout life without the crutch of addiction to fall back on. Education provides our patients with the knowledge needed to help them stay away from using drugs or alcohol once treatment concludes.
An Opportunity for Additional Help
Not only is our partial hospitalization program helpful for educational and holistic approaches, but it is also a stepping stone to additional support through The Willow Place for Women. Our aftercare options provide living opportunities, additional therapy, psychiatric care, and more to the patients who have completed the PHP. Often times an intensive stay is not enough for individuals who are serious about retaining their sobriety. This is where aftercare services can step in and provide added support. Aftercare options provide our recovering patients with the same resources they have had throughout treatment but allows them to use those resources as they assimilate back into society and learn to live their daily lives sober.
