Colorado drug rehab programs are always looking for as many ways as possible to help people battle the deadly disease of addiction. There is no such thing as too much support for recovery. Incorporating cutting-edge therapies and practices keeps Colorado drug rehabs ahead of the vicious hold of drugs and alcohol. One method that, in certain situations, is appropriate for treatment in Colorado drug rehabs is a partial hospitalization program.

Partial hospitalization is defined by Medicare as “a structured program of outpatient psychiatric services as an alternative to inpatient psychiatric care.” This treatment provides an increased level of intense treatment than a visit to a counselor’s office without having to stay on site 24/7. Partial hospitalization programs are designed for individuals who are out of the detoxification period, have strong ties to friends and family, and are stable enough to begin transitioning while continuing the recovery process.

What makes partial hospitalization programs a wonderful asset to Colorado drug rehab treatments is that it provides a bridge between the structured substance abuse treatment program and re-entering regular life. Having this gradual step of transitioning out of treatment through partial hospitalization helps to maintain stability and increase odds to long-term success. It can be incredibly overwhelming to go back into a world in which you were living through the lens of addiction. This can cause old triggers to surface and could push you toward relapse at an increased rate. Through partial hospitalization programs, you are able to still get an intense level of professional therapy from your mental health counselor while living independently and regaining a sense of life past treatment.

Commitment is key as regularly working the partial hospitalization program every day along with being accountable for remaining clean and sober at home is a full-time job. With each new day, you are stronger and ready to take on the world substance-free.
