Day Treatment for Addiction

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers a seamless transition from residential to outpatient care, minimizing care level drop risks. This structured program option allows individuals to engage in evidence-based therapies from 8:45 am to 5:00 pm, five days a week, without an overnight stay. Clients can live at home or in supported sober living, receiving personalized treatment in individual and group settings.

What is Supported Sober Living?

Bridging the Gap Between Inpatient & Outpatient Treatments

Our PHP treatment is uniquely combined with supported sober living, offering an unmatched recovery experience. This integrated approach provides essential support for early recovery and relapse prevention. Our sober living houses ensure accountability while clients engage in deep emotional therapy to process past traumas. Residents enjoy structured freedom, with safety measures like breathalyzer and urine screenings, fostering reintegration into everyday life with support and security.

Structured Healing

The Benefits of Partial Hospitalization

PHP clients continue to work with the same multidisciplinary team of licensed and credentialed staff.  Clients continue to receive medical care from BTG’s medical team, including medication management/education as needed, and psychiatric referrals when appropriate. Clients also continue to prepare and eat meals in accordance with BTG’s nutritional guidelines, receive supportive residential oversight from BTG’s residential staff, and receive alternative treatment modalities (Yoga, reiki, and acu-detox) from BTG staff and independent contractors. Clinically, the client continues to work with his assigned primary counselor in individual and family conjoint sessions. 

As part of our multidisciplinary team approach, we consider each PHP client individually with respect to the type and depth of emotional work undertaken. Each client develops an individualized PHP treatment plan to address their core goals for recovery. Some of the common areas of focus include:

Increase knowledge of the disease of addiction. Enhance the client’s understanding of addiction and how it affects their personal recovery journey. Learn to recognize personal relapse triggers and explore how core beliefs may drive addictive behaviors. Acquire practical experience in maintaining abstinence from all mood-altering substances.
Identify and practice the healthy management of thoughts and feelings.Explore core therapeutic concerns including past trauma and co-occurring mental health disorders. 
Practice healthy communication including boundary setting. Identify, accept and where possible, resolve core issues related to the family of origin and current relationships. 
Develop skills associated with spiritual development.Demonstrate the ability to use a sober support system and develop a working relationship with a sponsor.

Crafting a Healthy Recovery

Our Holistic Treatment Methods for Addiction

Explore our comprehensive suite of holistic treatment methods designed to support a healthy recovery from addiction.

12 Step Meetings

Alcoholic Anonymous (AA)  and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings follow a 12-step program that helps individuals develop coping mechanisms and strategies for managing their addiction in a healthy way.


Acudetox (auricular detoxification) is a therapeutic technique that involves the application of acupuncture or acupressure to specific points on the ear to help detoxify the body and calm the nervous system.

Amino Acid Therapy

Amino acid therapy uses specific amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins, to help regulate brain chemistry and alleviate cravings and other discomfort associated with addiction and early recovery.

Group Education

Group education allows clients to learn more about the disease of addiction and develop cognitive and behavioral tools to avoid relapse, mend relationships, and establish healthy habits in recovery.

Group Psychotherapy &
Individual Sessions

Group psychotherapy is a small group of clients, led by a credentialed clinician, who come together to share their struggles, emotions, and experiences related to addiction. Individual sessions allow clients to work with their assigned therapist to explore these themes further.


Neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback) is used to help patients break free from harmful patterns of thinking and behavior.  We identify the individual’s brain wave patterns and develop a training protocol to promote more effective functioning. This can help reduce cravings, improve impulse control, and promote emotional stability.

Nutrition Education

Nutrition education teaches our clients the importance of a healthy and balanced diet, and how certain foods can impact their physical and mental health. It addresses the specific dietary needs of those struggling with addiction, such as vitamin deficiencies or food sensitivities that may contribute to cravings and relapse.


Trauma-informed care takes into account the potential impact of past trauma on an individual’s current mental health and well-being. This approach recognizes that traumatic experiences can significantly contribute to addiction, and therefore aims to address these underlying issues utilizing trauma treatment techniques like Brainspotting.


Evidence-Based Practices

How Are Partial Hospitalization Programs Effective?

The intention of admitting an individual into this flexible intermediate level of care is to provide a treatment plan that matches services with a person’s level of need, so that people receive the proper degree of treatment intensity. Clients engage in a minimum of six hours of programming, five days a week to fully immerse them in the proven healing modalities that support a client’s ability to stay sober.

Our Partial Hospitalization Community

Inside Bridging the Gaps

Clients engaged in this treatment option are embedded into the same community as our residential clients. The primary difference between the residential structure and PHP structure is where the client resides and the amount of autonomy they have outside of the clinical day. PHP clients engage in education and group therapy in the morning with their peers. The afternoon is filled with a rotational schedule of individual therapy, medical appointments, neurofeedback, DBT sessions, big book, creative expressions, music therapy, meditation, spirituality, living skills, cooking classes, acudetox, exercise, and yoga. The full PHP program takes place in our clinical building.

The BTG Difference

Roots of Addiction

In order to create a healthy, sustainable recovery from drugs and alcohol, it is important to address the root cause. So our partial hospitalization services includes rebalancing brain chemistry, utilizing comprehensive psychotherapy, implementing proper nutrition, and nourishing one’s spirituality.

Long-Term Care

Our long-term continuum of care allows our clients to progress through our program at a pace that fits the severity of their disease, allowing them adequate time to heal that is unique to their individual situation. Research has shown that clients who stay engaged in treatment for longer have better long-term results once treatment is completed.

Sober Living

Our supportive sober living allows clients to reintegrate into society safely, allowing them to utilize their newly-acquired life skills and coping mechanisms in everyday situations as they continue to benefit from a sober community. Our 3 residences provide the comforts of home with added support and accountability.

Timely Treatment Intervention

When to Begin Partial Hospitalization for Addiction

Our PHP program is designed for clients transitioning directly from home or from residential care. We conduct a thorough bio-psycho-social assessment to verify if PHP suits their needs, considering factors like withdrawal risks, mental and medical health, motivation, and environmental stability. For clients from residential treatment, readiness involves effective group interaction, compliance with rules, and completion of key program milestones.

Find answers to commonly asked questions about addiction and recovery.

  • What is the difference between partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment?

    The titles of outpatient treatment can be confusing. Partial hospitalization (PHP) has nothing to do with being in a hospital, and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) is actually less intensive than PHP. Our PHP program involves a minimum of 6 hours a day and includes all of our holistic modalities, medical support, education and therapy. IOP, on the other hand, requires a minimum of 3 hours a day and the focus is on education and therapy only.

  • How long does partial hospitalization last?

    Each client’s journey through treatment will be unique. Our programs are open-ended depending on the needs of the client. We evaluate readiness for transition or discharge as the client progresses through the program. On average, clients spend 4 – 6 weeks at this level of care.

  • Does partial hospitalization assist with co-occurring disorders?

    Often, clients presenting for addictions treatment also struggle with co-occurring mental health symptoms like anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADHD, and personality disorders. These co-occurring disorders can complicate the recovery process so it is important to treat both simultaneously to ensure the best outcomes. Our PHP program is intentionally designed to address the root cause of the addiction and enhance the quality of long term sobriety. We provide comprehensive and integrated care tailored to the individual’s needs in order to manage mental health symptoms, enhance coping mechanisms and improve resiliency so as to alleviate the emotional pain that drives the desire to self-medicate with substances of abuse.
