Levels of Care
Drug and alcohol treatment occurs at different levels and as patients progress towards recovery. At our Pompano Beach facility we offer different levels of care. Before being admitted, patients receive a full medical and psychological evaluation. By knowing every patient’s medical, mental and addiction history, we’re able to craft an individually tailored treatment plan that offers the best possible chance at a successful recovery.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Despite the name, PHP is a form of outpatient care. Patients attend intensive, day-long programs at Sovereign’s treatment facility then return home. In some cases they may live at a residential sober living facility like our Fort Lauderdale complex – where they can continue to work on their treatment free from distraction. In many PHPs, most of the same rules in a full-time hospitalization program apply. Patients generally aren’t allowed access to their phones or even shoelaces for their own safety. It sounds strict, but the chief goal of PHP is ensuring the patient is able to safely receive treatment without the distractions and temptations outside of the treatment facility. Studies show that stays in residential treatment have long-lasting benefits for patients.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Treatment in an IOP occurs less often than in a PHP. Patients attend treatment for around 10 to 12 hours a week, which allows them time to participate more fully in daily life. A patient in an IOP can work, attend school and engage in other activities. A holistic approach to the 12-Step Program model features in the Sovereign Health treatment plan. Patients are encouraged to attend these programs in their free time. 12-step group meetings are offered off-site at Pompano Beach.
Sovereign also offers an evening IOP program at Pompano Beach, to ensure every patient receives treatment regardless of schedule and other commitments.
Outpatient Program (OP)
Our Pompano Beach facility also provides outpatient treatment services for substance abuse and dual diagnosis patients. This allows even more flexibility for patients’ schedules, allowing them to receive the treatment they need while fulfilling their other obligations.
