Partial hospital program (PHP)

Circle of Hope partial hospitalization program (PHP) uses evidence-based treatment, skill enhancement, and 12-step programming to improve a person’s ability to function in daily life. The PHP program offers onsite housing and access to staff 24 hours a day. Generally, PHP is for patients that have completed detoxification either at Circle of Hope or another detox facility.
Our clinicians perform a thorough assessment, to determine if partial hospitalization is an appropriate level of care. When a client has met their goals in PHP, they would be considered for step-down to our intensive outpatient program (IOP). The professionals in our drug treatment programs recognize the fact that our clients will make progress at their rates.

Initially, addicts need medical and nutritional attention to begin restoring physical balance. From there, they start to explore the underlying issues that have contributed to their addiction, such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

  • Completed detoxification
