Benefits of PHP

Our PHP program is designed to provide the daily structure and support that is needed in the early stages of recovery. We aim to instill individuals with the life skills and resources needed to finally break free from the addiction that weighs so heavy on their lives. Throughout treatment, our clients are under the guidance of medical professions and masters and doctorate level clinicians. With access to on-site psychopharmacology and support for Medical Assisted Recovery (MAR), individuals with co-occurring disorders or withdrawal medications can rest assure that they are under professional expert care. We also believe in the importance of the support of family and positive relationships and encourage loved ones to be involved in the treatment process.
