Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Lifeskills South Florida Outpatient Center offers clients a partial hospitalization program (PHP), which is an intensive five-day-a-week treatment program, consisting of highly structured, evidence-based therapy during the day. PHP provides clients autonomy in a safe environment to practice recovery skills in real-life situations. Our clinicians work with clients to provide a treatment plan that includes individual and group therapy sessions that help them learn skills needed to live an independent life outside of treatment. Many clients in PHP may be working, volunteering, or attending school.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) Specialty Groups
The basis of our outpatient programming at Lifeskills is group therapy. Provided below are descriptions of some of the groups offered as part of our PHP.
In a world filled with distractions finding the time and learning how to use effective skills to stay present can be challenging. This groups focuses on psychoeducation, the positive effects of mindfulness practice (i.e., reducing anxiety and depression), and real-world applications that are tailored to each client. Group members can also share personal experiences on what works best for them and how they can increase the effectiveness of their mindfulness skills.
Changing people, places, and things associated with past alcohol and drug abuse is imperative to decreasing chances of relapse. It’s vital that clients surround themselves with like-minded peers who are motivated to stay sober and make healthy friendships. Our relapse prevention program reviews skills and teaches techniques that have proven success for maintaining abstinence.
