There are many reasons that people seeking professional rehab services may not want to enroll in residential treatment. Fortunately, there is more than one kind of outpatient care. Non-residential treatment can be offered in a regular or low-intensity outpatient program (OP), an intensive outpatient program (IOP), and what is called a partial hospitalization program (PHP). If you have served in the military and are seeking a veterans’ rehab center that offers high-level treatment in an outpatient setting, look no further than UpArmor Recovery. Our partial hospitalization program in Mississippi offers leading-edge, evidence-based care for veterans.
There is much to be said about the efficacy of PHP for veterans. Learn more about how UpArmor can help you.

What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program?
For people who want to begin recovery but have particularly complex needs, PHP offers a higher level of care than an intensive outpatient program or low-intensity outpatient program. In a PHP, you will receive various treatments throughout the day under medical oversight and be able to go home at night, be supported by family, and sleep in your own bed. There is usually at least one day off during the week.
Unlike an OP which often involves only about six hours of treatment per week, or an IOP which requires a commitment of between 12 and 15 hours per week, a PHP can be up to six hours per day, five, sometimes six, hours a week. Though you can stay connected to home life and, to some extent, touch in at work or school, people who enroll in a partial hospitalization program typically take time off from work and school responsibilities. Some people can maintain a reduced schedule, however.
Who Qualifies for a PHP for Veterans?
Veterans usually have complex needs and challenges with their addictions. They are more likely to have co-occurring mental health disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which recommends them for a higher level of care. Sometimes people who qualify for inpatient treatment opt for PHP to stay connected with home and family, which can be very positive for veterans with solid home support systems.
Factors to consider when deciding whether to enroll in a PHP include:
- How severe is your addiction as evaluated by your intake team?
- How long have you been struggling with addiction?
- Is your home situation stable, safe, and trigger-free?
- Do you have, or suspect you have, one or more co-occurring mental health disorders?
- Are you addicted to or do you regularly abuse more than one substance (also called polysubstance use disorder)?
- Have you begun recovery in the past but had a relapse?
