Overview and Treatment Strategies
Phase I: Intake and Assessment

After the assessment has been completed, consumers will be assigned to the program based upon treatment necessity. They will be assigned a Substance Abuse Counselor, Therapist, Para Professional and nurse which provide a highly structured recovery environment in combination with professional clinical services to support and promote recovery. Aligned with the ASAM Level II.5 structured activities will be provided in the mornings and in the evenings.
ASAM Level 2.5
Level 2.5 partial hospitalization programs (PHP), also known as “day treatment,” generally provide 20 or more hours of clinically intensive programming per week, as specified in the patient’s treatment plan. Level 2.5 partial hospitalization programs typically have direct access to psychiatric, medical and laboratory services, and thus are better able than Level 2.1 programs to meet needs identified in Dimension 1, Acute intoxication and/withdrawal potential; Dimension 2, Biomedical conditions and complications; and Dimension 3, emotional, behavioral or cognitive conditions and complications; which warrant daily monitoring or management but which can be appropriately addressed in a structured outpatient setting.
