Life in 2020 is like an endless parade of unfortunate events. From adjusting to the “new normal” in terms of school, work, and even just basic social protocols — to say it’s a hassle is a bit of an understatement. Add to that having mental health issues that require intensive therapy and it’s enough to drive you over the edge. It’s a great thing that Trauma and Beyond Center ® offers its PHP trauma treatment in LA.
PHP Trauma Treatment in LA: A Brief Overview
PHP or Short for Partial Hospitalization Program, is somewhat similar to IOP (intensive outpatient program) in the sense that it allows the individual to maintain their current life and take care of responsibilities while still getting quality comprehensive treatment for their mental health issues. Where it differs is in the length and frequency of the sessions. While IOP sessions typically last around 3 hours 3 times a week, PHP sessions tend to last around 4-6 hours 5 times a week, depending on the needs of the individual.
Acknowledging that you need treatment is the first step towards recovery, but choosing the suitable treatment program is equally important. There are many things to consider in selecting the right treatment for you, namely:
- What are your personal, specific needs?
- How much of your time can you set aside for your treatment?
- What kind of program could you afford with a specific budget?
Residential care may be needed is for those with severe trauma and mental health issues. Having access to support and medical assistance 24/7 is critical when there is danger of suicide, debilitating depression, or an overall low level of functioning. This kind of treatment, may be expensive and requires the individual to (almost completely) withdraw from their life and devote a prolonged period of time in the treatment facility.
The Trauma and Beyond PHP trauma treatment program a reasonable compromise between getting intensive treatment while still being able to maintain a sense of normalcy. You are able to receive proper care for your needs without having to step away from family, work, and responsibilities. Another added benefit is that you are able to apply your learnings from each session on everyday situations you encounter in your life which gives you immediate real-world and real-time results. Plus, you get to enjoy the comfort of being surrounded by your personal support group.
Who Is This Program Designed For?
In truth, anyone who needs intensive treatment would gain from the Trauma and Beyond Center ® partial hospitalization program. Anyone who suffers from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) or someone with a severe case of depression or anxiety would benefit from this kind of program and could help speed up their healing process.
A person who has issues with addiction could also be an ideal candidate for this program. This, of course, is reliant on where they are in their recovery process. Individuals who are at a higher risk of a relapse or are experiencing withdrawal symptoms would best be suited with residential care as they require constant medical assistance and monitoring. But for individuals who have access to a safe living space as well as some form of support system in place, the PHP treatment program might be the most ideal option.
The Trauma and Beyond Center ® LA trauma treatment PHP may also be an ideal transition program for individuals who started out in residential care. Transitioning from a residential care facility into independent living can be a daunting change in pace for someone who’s spent a significant amount of time “outside” of society. The program could provide a manageable progression from round-the-clock treatment to something that can be incorporated into a routine that’s part of daily life.
