About Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Tampa PHP Treatment at River Oaks

A partial hospitalization program, or PHP, can serve as an entry point into addiction treatment or as a continuation of the care initiated in a residential or inpatient program. Read on to learn more about the PHP offered at our outpatient addiction treatment facility in Riverview, Florida.

What Is PHP Addiction Treatment?

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a highly structured, intensive form of outpatient addiction rehab. Sometimes called “day treatment,” partial hospitalization programs generally provide at least 20 hours of treatment counseling per week. PHPs include much of the same types of programming and therapies used in residential or inpatient rehab but without overnight care.1

The PHP at River Oaks involves 30+ hours of treatment per week designed to address the complex needs of those struggling with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.

PHP patients have access to on-site mutual support groups and staff clinicians and counselors. Evidence-based therapies and counseling may include:2

At River Oaks, PHP participants may live off-site and commute to our facility each day, or they may opt to reside in our sober supportive housing, located in a separate wing of our residential addiction treatment center.

What’s the Difference Between PHP, IOP, and Standard Outpatient Addiction Rehab?

The difference between PHP and other types of outpatient care is the amount of time and intensity of care. Other variables may include the program’s setting and structure.3,4

For example, an intensive outpatient program (IOP) typically provides 9+ hours of treatment per week, while a partial hospitalization program provides at least 20 hours of treatment per week.3,4

An IOP may take place during the day, evening, or weekend, allowing participants the flexibility to return to previous activities such as work, school, or family events. In a PHP, programming usually spans most of the traditional workday, making it more challenging to attend other activities outside of rehab.

Standard outpatient services generally involve 9 or fewer hours of treatment per week. This is considered the least intense level of outpatient care and is not currently offered at our Florida facility.3,4

River Oaks does offer several different intensive outpatient programs. In our IOPs, patients have the option to live off-site and drive to the facility, or those who need additional support can choose to stay in our on-campus supportive sober housing.

At River Oaks, we also offer a virtual community IOP program. Sessions are held online Monday through Friday from 5 p.m.–8 p.m. To learn more about telehealth addiction treatment at our facility, call us at .

An outpatient program is just one step in a full spectrum of addiction treatment. At River Oaks, our skilled and compassionate staff will help determine the ideal level of care to meet a person’s individual needs.

Factors taken into consideration include:4

  • Risk of relapse.
  • Previous history of addiction treatment.
  • Mental, physical, and social health.
  • Homelife and external support systems.

It’s common for treatment plans to involve multiple levels of rehab care and evolve as a person progresses in their recovery. The duration of treatment also varies greatly, lasting anywhere from several short-term detox programs and month-long rehab programs to 2-3 month-long addiction treatment plans.

For many, addiction treatment begins with a medical detox program at our inpatient addiction treatment facility in Riverview, FL. From there, participants may wish to extend their treatment in an IOP or PHP.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to addiction rehab, and at River Oaks, we ensure treatment plans are customized to each unique individual who walks through our doors.5

Does Health Insurance Cover Partial Hospitalization Addiction Treatment?

Most health insurance plans in the Tampa Bay area and elsewhere in Florida will cover partial hospitalization programs. Outpatient services and other forms of addiction treatment are now considered essential health benefits, and thanks to recent coverage expansions through the Affordable Care Act, these services are more accessible than ever before.8

At River Oaks, the exact cost of a PHP varies greatly depending on the specific insurance plan and whether the carrier is “in-network” with our facility. Out-of-pocket expenses may also fluctuate based on the plan’s deductible and co-insurance rates.
