Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital’s Addiction Partial Hospital Day Treatment Program is a short-term stabilization and treatment program that addresses the needs of patients who have both substance use and psychiatric disorders. The program runs from 9 am to 2:45 pm, Monday through Friday (view PDF version of schedule). You will be cared for by a multidisciplinary team of experienced addiction psychiatrists and licensed clinical social workers. The primary goal of the program is to provide guidance, self empowerment and healthy living techniques to promote recovery from drug or alcohol use. Our professional staff will help you to understand how your substance use and mental health influence one another, while learning healthy coping skills to prevent relapse.
While in the program, you will participate in a variety of psycho-educational groups. These structured groups focus on intervention, skills training and use of your unique strengths to overcome personal problems. Methods used to teach these skills include goal setting, daily check-in groups, behavior modification, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and mindfulness, as well as meditation and relaxation training. Each patient receives a full psychiatric evaluation and ongoing assessment by our addiction psychiatry team, daily individual counseling by an addiction counselor and coordination of care with current outpatient providers and aftercare referrals. During the course of treatment, patients may also be prescribed medication to assist with the treatment of psychiatric and substance use disorders.
