Day Treatment, also known as Partial Hospitalization (or PHP) is a form of drug and alcohol treatment that is less structured than residential treatment and more structured than intensive outpatient. The purpose of Day Treatment is to help a client gradually transition from an intensive residential treatment environment to a less structured level of care.
Just as the names Partial Hospitalization or Day Treatment imply, clients engaged at this level of care are in programming at the Baystate Recovery Center outpatient office during the day on Monday-Friday, typically five (5) times per week, from 9:00am to 3:30pm. Program duration is based on individual needs.
Most Day Treatment groups begin the day with a ‘check-in’ followed by the introduction of a topic or activity by the group facilitator and then a ‘process group.’ Lunch is provided for clients in Day Treatment.
While engaged in Day Treatment, clients see the psychiatrist or physician’s assistant weekly for comprehensive psychiatric assessment and medication management.
All clients at the Day Treatment level of care are required to be drug and alcohol tested in order to monitor their continued sobriety.
Day Treatment typically lasts between 2-4 weeks depending on medical necessity of the client. Most PPO insurance plans will cover the cost of Day Treatment at Baystate Recovery Center.
