Los Angeles Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

The Life Adjustment Team empowers individuals to overcome life’s challenges through compassionate, evidence-based, and effective mental health care. We recognize that each person’s journey is unique, and our goal is to offer individualized solutions that foster growth, resilience, and well-being.

Our approach to mental health care is centered around understanding the individual needs of each client and developing personalized treatment plans that meet those needs effectively. One of our key offerings, the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), stands as a vital component of our comprehensive treatment spectrum.

Why Choose Our Partial Hospitalization Program?

Our PHP is carefully designed to cater to individuals who need a higher level of support than traditional outpatient programs offer. This intensive outpatient program serves as an optimal choice for those who require structured and supportive mental health treatment while also continuing to engage in their day-to-day activities. This unique aspect allows our clients to maintain essential connections with their existing support systems, enhancing the overall healing process.

What Level of Care is PHP?

Our PHP is more than a transitional phase—it’s a transformative experience designed to meet the diverse needs of individuals requiring a higher level of care than traditional outpatient programs provide.

  • Individualized Support: Our PHP is not a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s a dynamic program tailored to the individual, addressing clients’ unique challenges and fostering personal growth.
  • Inclusive Connections: As an outpatient treatment model, our PHP recognizes the importance of ongoing support systems in the recovery journey, fostering a sense of community and understanding.
  • Holistic Healing: We go beyond traditional therapeutic methods, incorporating holistic approaches that nurture the complete well-being of individuals.
  • Proven Therapeutic Modalities: From CBT and DBT to trauma-informed care, our PHP integrates both evidence-based and experiential modalities to promote effective and lasting change.

With The Life Adjustment Team’s Partial Hospitalization Program, you are choosing an approach to healing that takes into account every aspect of your well-being and provides you with the support you need to make lasting changes.

When is PHP Care Necessary?

Determining the most suitable mental health care plan is a crucial step toward recovery. Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs) may be recommended when a more intensive level of support is needed compared to standard outpatient services. This may include situations where the client requires daily therapeutic intervention, but the intensity of inpatient care is not essential. It serves as an effective alternative for individuals who need comprehensive treatment without a hospital or residential setting.

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

Partial Hospitalization Programs stand as a distinct and intensive form of mental health treatment, blending elements of both inpatient and outpatient care. At The Life Adjustment Team, our PHP is designed to provide a supportive and structured environment for individuals navigating complex mental health challenges. In essence, PHPs offer a level of intensity beyond traditional outpatient programs, often mirroring the structure of a residential program.

In our PHP, clients participate in sessions five days a week, with each session lasting around 5 hours, adjusting the intensity to meet an individual’s needs. This format proves particularly beneficial for those transitioning from residential treatment, offering a comprehensive and immersive experience while allowing individuals to remain in their home environment. The more rigorous schedule not only fosters progress in mental health but also assists in creating a safer routine for individuals on their journey to well-being.

What’s the Difference Between PHP and IOP?

While Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs) and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) both fall under the umbrella of outpatient care, the distinctions lie in their intensity and structure. PHPs, known for their robust and residential-like approach, typically demand a more substantial time commitment, often requiring attendance 5 days a week for sessions lasting 4 to 8(?)  hours. This depth of engagement is a key characteristic unique to PHPs, catering to individuals seeking a comprehensive solution for complex mental health challenges.

On the other hand, IOPs offer a more flexible schedule, allowing individuals to engage in treatment sessions while still maintaining their daily routines. The crucial difference is the level of intensity: PHPs provide a higher degree of structure and support, making them an ideal choice for those navigating the transition from inpatient care or requiring a more immersive treatment experience. In other words, PHPs bridge the gap between residential and outpatient care, offering a middle ground for personalized and intensive mental health support.

What Can a Partial Hospitalization Program Help With? 

Partial Hospitalization Programs stand as a versatile and comprehensive mental health solution catering to diverse needs. Individuals grappling with mental health challenges, substance abuse, or a combination of both can find individualized support within the structured framework of PHPs.

  • Mental Health: PHPs are well-suited for those dealing with complex mental health conditions. The intensive schedule ensures a focused and supportive environment, aiding individuals in managing symptoms, acquiring coping mechanisms, and fostering overall well-being.
  • Substance Abuse: PHPs offer a lifeline for those navigating the complex process of substance abuse recovery. The program’s intensity, including daily sessions and a supportive community, aids in breaking the cycle of addiction and addressing underlying mental health issues contributing to substance use.
  • Dual Diagnosis: For individuals facing both mental health and substance use challenges, PHPs provide an integrated approach. By addressing these interconnected issues concurrently, PHPs empower individuals to build a foundation for lasting recovery and mental wellness.
