Holistix by the Sea acknowledges the distinctions between various levels of addiction, and offers tiered drug treatment programs accordingly. Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a 30–45 day program that begins the foundation of our clients’ treatment process. We have individualized treatment plans for each client, so that number is just a standard number of days, but a client’s stay could be up to 60 days, depending on the case. Our PHP program is “on site,” and clients get transported between the residence and our clinical office.
Holistix by the Sea offers two outpatient treatment programs. Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) / Outpatient Program (OP) is normally 6–8 weeks. This helps our clients transition from inpatient status to a continuum of care in a sober living environment, while still being kept close for monitoring and stability. It is our recommendation that our clients commit to 6–8 weeks of Intensive Outpatient Program and then gradually step down to our Outpatient Program on a once- or twice-a-week basis. Both IOP and OP are off-site, meaning that our clients live in sober living home and will be picked up if necessary by our staff. IOP is 3 days a week. OP is 1–2 times a week.
According to the National Institutes of Health, Congress defines partial hospitalization as an outpatient program specifically designed for the diagnosis or active treatment of a serious mental disorder when there is a reasonable expectation for improvement or when it is necessary to maintain a patient’s functional level and prevent relapse or full hospitalization. Drug addiction treatment programs must meet rigorous standards in order to qualify for Medicare coverage.
Treatment goals are defined as follows:
PHP benefit requirements include:
PHP is a step below inpatient hospitalization but a level above outpatient care.
Holistix by the Sea’s drug treatment programs adhere to the guidelines while providing a caring environment for personal growth. We exceed mandated requirements by virtue of our philosophy of empathy and nurturing in addition to the clinical aspects of healing. Additionally, adjunct modalities like acupuncture, biofeedback, massage therapy, and our overarching emphasis on a spiritual approach, combined with the essentials covered by the mandate, make Holistix by the Sea a leader in the recovery field.
Any addict or alcoholic with a desire to find freedom from a substance-abuse problem can participate in any of the levels of treatment offered by Holistix by the Sea. If the level of severity of use and dependency is minimal but still problematic, significant help can be had with one of our Outpatient Programs. If the substance abuse is chronic and severe, our Partial Hospitalization Program is the preferred choice.
