Partial Hospitalization Program for Women Recovering from Addiction
Willow Place for Women offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for women suffering from substance use. This day 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 (Monday – Friday) to keep you fully focused on your addiction recovery. These women may be living in one of Willow Place’s supportive living home, another sober living in the community, or at their own home. 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, Monday through Friday, 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 will be given a full alcohol and drug screening. A woman is not just her addiction, so we strive to uncover and treat all our clients underlying issues to make treatment as effective as possible. 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. No matter who you are, what you do for a living, or how you’re involved in the community, 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 become so as a result of trauma, mental illness, or self-medication for a physical issue. Whatever the reason, 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 use. 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, 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 bodies. Holistic medicine is about treating 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, Willow Place treats patients’ minds, bodies, and souls. 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
Knowing that the chance of relapse in early recovery is high, we place importance on 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 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 Willow Place for Women. Our aftercare options provide living opportunities, additional therapy, psychiatric care, and more to the patients who have completed the PHP. Oftentimes, 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 allow them to use those resources as they assimilate back into society and learn to live their daily lives sober.
