Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) for substance use disorder (SUD) and mental health disorders in Fort Worth, Texas is designed to give you the intensive alcohol addiction and/or drug addiction treatment you need while still being able to stay home and sleep in your own bed.

Located in Fort Worth, Texas on the western side of the city, this alternative to residential treatment is the perfect middle ground between full-time rehab, which separates you from your home and family for 30+ days, and an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that may not be the level of care you need.

Here’s how it works:

How PHP Works — 5 Hours a Day, 5 Days a Week

Our partial hospitalization program takes place during the day and will likely require you to take time off of work to complete it. However, if you work a nontraditional schedule, you may be able to continue working while completing the program.

PHP Treatment Programming includes:

  • 25 hours a week
  • Monday–Friday, 9 am to 2 pm with a 1-hour break for lunch
  • 2 weeks long on average

You get access to a wealth of resources designed to help you get clean and sober permanently, including:

  • Weekly appointments with a psychiatrist who can prescribe and make changes to medication
  • One-on-one individualized therapy with a dedicated counselor
  • Group therapy
  • Addiction/alcoholism education
  • Recreational therapy
  • Randomized drug testing

You’ll also be required to regularly attend some sort of recovery program, like a 12-step program or SMART Recovery.

The major difference between IOP and PHP is the time commitment. IOP is structured differently:

  • 9 hours a week
  • 3 hours a day for 3 days
  • Available during the day or in the evening

Frequently Asked Questions About PHP

Here are answers to our most frequently asked questions about our partial hospitalization program.

PHP is not for everyone, but it’s best if:
  • You are unable to go to residential treatment but need a high level of care
  • You are leaving treatment or have recently left treatment and feel you still need a high level of care to maintain your progress
  • You want to be able to sleep in your own bed at night and eat breakfast and dinner at home
  • You feel strongly that you can stay sober once you go home for the day
  • You don’t need medical detox or you have already completed a medical detox
  • You’re able to take off 2 weeks or more from work/school (unless you have a nontraditional schedule)
  • You need additional psychiatric treatment to ensure you’re on the right medications at the right doses
  • You want to ease your way out of treatment instead of jumping right back into your everyday life
If you’re experiencing any of the following, PHP probably isn’t a good fit for you:
  • Suicidal thoughts/ideation
  • Thoughts of harming others
  • Active self-harm
  • Active eating disorders
  • Active substance use/abuse
  • Actively experiencing psychosis
  • Inability to stay sober

In all of these situations, you need to either go to a hospital, a detox facility, or an in-patient psychiatric facility where you can get a very high level of care. If you don’t need a medical detox but you are unable to stop using or drinking, you likely need to go to an in-patient rehab facility. A PHP program cannot keep you away from available alcohol or drugs as an in-patient rehab can.

PHP is only effective if you are clean and sober. PHP works very well if you’ve just left residential treatment and want to continue having a high level of care. If you are unable to stop using/drinking on your own, you need to go to a hospital or a medical detox center so that you can safely complete the withdrawal process.
If you’re responsible for dropping off and picking up your children from school, you’ll most likely be able to take care of this responsibility while attending PHP because it takes place from 9 am to 2 pm.
PHP is generally covered by insurance.

We take most forms of insurance, but you’ll need to contact us and give us your insurance information so that we can confirm coverage.
