Partial Hospitalization Programming is a level of continued care that offers more flexibility and privileges than medically monitored detox, general drug detox in Palm Beach, or residential treatment. It is at this time that patients begin to re-integrate back to everyday life, with the opportunity to go off-site for recovery meetings, religious services, and recreational outings. At Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches in Lake Worth, Florida, we offer Partial Hospitalization Programming in Palm Beach as a seamless step-down for patients who have completed higher levels of care, or as a direct admission for patients who meet medical and clinical criteria.
Our Partial Hospitalization Program is a step-down level of care that enables patients to continue receiving full-time therapeutic services while simultaneously developing independent living skills. Patients continue to meet with a psychiatrist/MD on a regular basis for medication evaluation and management, and have individual therapy sessions with their primary clinician weekly and group therapy daily. PHP in Palm Beach offers patients the opportunity to begin practicing life skills, such as cooking, cleaning, and doing laundry themselves, preparing them for discharge. Life-skill coaching and vocational services are available to patients to best enable success.

It is during Partial Hospitalization Programming at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches that highly trained staff members work with patients to begin discharge planning. Whether patients are returning home, stepping down to an Intensive Outpatient Program, or entering sober living, our dedicated Case Managers work to find the best placement for each individual. Some patients may require letters of completion for legal, academic, or professional reasons and our staff will provide the necessary paperwork. We work closely with families and loved ones and have a network of more than 1,000 providers nationwide so that we are able to connect patients with the most appropriate resources upon discharge.
Support for our patients doesn’t end once they leave our care. Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches has a nationwide alumni program for recovered addicts that provides a support network that is crucial during early recovery. With regular meetings, activities, and follow-up phone calls, patients have the opportunity to stay plugged into the recovering community with support and guidance from our staff long after leaving the program.
