Salem, Virginia’s Best Partial Hospitalization Program for Addiction Treatment

At Mount Regis Center, our effective partial hospitalization program (PHP) is designed to be flexible and individualized to meet our clients’ specific needs.

What Is PHP?

The partial hospitalization program (PHP) at Mount Regis Center is a highly structured program that provides personalized services for adult men and women whose lives have been impacted by substance abuse, addiction, and certain mental health concerns.

PHP is an optimal level of care for individuals who need comprehensive, structured services but do not require 24/7 supervision.

PHP patients at Mount Regis Center participate in a full treatment schedule each weekday (Mondays through Fridays), and return home or to an alternative residence in the evenings and on weekends.

Most PHP patients at Mount Regis Center remain in the program for 10 to 14 days.

Who Can Take Part in PHP at Mount Regis Center?

PHP is open to adult men and women, ages 18 and older, who are struggling with substance abuse and addiction. PHP patients may also receive care for certain co-occurring mental health disorders, but these concerns must be accompanied by a primary diagnosis of a substance use disorder.

All admissions decisions at Mount Regis Center are made on a person-by-person basis. However, in general, PHP is the right fit for men and women who meet one of the following criteria:

  • Have completed detox and/or residential care, but can benefit from structured step-down support as they begin to transition out of care
  • Needs are not severe enough to require the round-the-clock care of a residential program, but can benefit from a full schedule of intensive treatment services

Following your time in PHP, you may step down to our intensive outpatient program (IOP), or transition out of our care. As with admissions decisions, your follow-on options will be determined by what best meets your specific needs and goals.

What Does PHP Treat?

As noted in the previous section, all men and women who participate in PHP at Mount Regis Center must have a primary diagnosis of a substance use disorder (which is the clinical term for addiction). However, PHP patients may also receive care for certain co-occurring mental health disorders.

Anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are some of the more common co-occurring disorders among PHP patients.

Specialty treatment groups within PHP include trauma and abuse, young adult issues, relapse prevention, co-occurring disorders, gender issues, and a Bible group. We also provide specialized care for individuals who are continuing to struggle with withdrawal symptoms, as well as for those who need medication management services.

What Services Are Offered in PHP?

PHP patients will participate in multiple group therapy sessions each day, as well as weekly experiential therapy opportunities and biweekly family therapy.
The following are among the many topics that are addressed in our daily process and education groups:

  • Addiction
  • Co-occurring issues
  • Trauma and abuse
  • Relapse prevention
  • Sober living and aftercare strategies
  • Understanding the disease process
  • Relationships
  • Basic life skills
  • 12-Step support, including AA/NA

Examples of experiential therapies include our low ropes course, rock climbing, equine therapy, psychodrama, art therapy, music therapy, and yoga.

Family therapy can be an excellent opportunity for loved ones to address the impact that addiction has had on their lives, and to learn how to best support the patient during and after treatment.
