PHP Substance Abuse Treatment Program with Community Housing
GateHouse Treatment offers a PHP addiction treatment program with community housing for our clients. The design of the program is meant to allow you to rebuild your life while also staying accountable to your recovery by staying in our residence, attending groups, individual therapy, case management sessions, medical provider appointments and 12 step meetings. While attending GateHouse’s Partial Hospitalization program clients have access to staff around the clock, and are under 24 hour supervision at all times. Early sobriety can be fragile, and everything about our program is designed to help you build sobriety that lasts.
GateHouse’s PHP substance abuse program is a great option for you or your loved one after you have completed a medical detox and are ready to take the next step. The purpose of PHP drug rehab programs are to allow clients to start reintegrating into society while still focusing on their recovery and therapy. PHP is designed to meet the specific strengths, needs, and treatment goals of each participant. This phase of treatment is paramount to ensure long-term sobriety. PHP substance abuse treatment is considered a more viable replacement to traditional residential or inpatient substance abuse treatment; because it allows you to build sobriety in a real world environment while also in a supportive therapeutic setting.
Prior to admitting to the partial hospitalization drug program at GateHouse Treatment, clients will undergo a biopsychosocial assessment to provide our clinical team all the information they need to develop a customized plan that can monitor your progress through our program.
During the PHP Treatment phase at GateHouse Treatment, clients will attend 6 hours of group therapy sessions daily. In order to be able to participate in such intensive therapy sessions, the client must have completed medical detoxification and achieve a degree of stability that will fully allow them to engage and benefit from the therapy.
GateHouse’s Partial Hospitalization program for substance abuse consists of five key components:
Individual Therapy: One-on-one sessions can be of great value for clients. This gives them an opportunity to have a private therapy session weekly with one of our master’s level clinicians. This time can be used in several different ways. Clients may discuss their progress through treatment, setbacks, and successes in recovery, or address current issues or concerns they might have and be unwilling to discuss openly in a group setting.
Group Therapy: Group therapy is a fundamental part of any phase of treatment. During our PHP drug rehab program, clients will attend multiple groups each day. Group therapy allows individuals to share, and learn from the experiences of others, and receive support from those that are in a similar situation. This allows the group to learn there are benefits from peer support. Through proper communication, led by a therapist, clients can learn skills that are essential to their long-term recovery.
Family Sessions: Addiction is a family disease. The impact of having a loved one who is addicted to alcohol or drugs can be felt across the whole family. The same way family members can be affected by their loved one’s struggles, it is crucial for them to also play a role in their recovery. The therapists will work with the client and client’s family through family therapy sessions that can be done at the facility or through phone/skype sessions. For more information on how the family can participate in their loved one’s recovery, GateHouse Treatment offers a family program free of charge to our client’s families.

Medication Management: Certain psychotropic medications are necessary for those suffering from a mental health illness along with substance abuse. After visiting with our psychiatrist, they will discuss a medication plan with the patient, using only non-narcotic medications to benefit the patient. When a client in our Partial hospitalization Program has been prescribed medication, the client will be educated on the medication prescribed and a staff member will oversee all dispensing of medications from a locked safe at -regular and routine- times throughout the day. This medication management is good preparation for healthy medication management once the client leaves the facility.
Biofeedback Bed: In addition to medication management, we have a Biofeedback bed accessible to clients 1-2 times a week for a 30-minute session; this is determined in clients individualized treatment plan. The Biofeedback bed is used as a way of guided meditation and has therapeutic value for a majority of our clients, with different programs that focus on working clients through anxiety, issues arising from PTSD, and those with emotional regulation struggles have had great success with using the biofeedback bed. Throughout the process the clients’ heartbeat and respirations are tracked and recorded, this ensures that all information is brought back to medical staff and therapist to ensure the most benefit to the client in a safe manner. Guided meditations and features allow clients to disengage from thought patterns that previously have been detrimental to their recovery.
Community Housing: While in our PHP substance abuse treatment program at GateHouse Treatment, we have safe and structured housing for the clients to live in, with transportation to and from the center. At the PHP level, there is round the clock supervision, and support from staff. Living at GateHouse residences allows the client to learn self-care, discipline, and responsibility.
