PHP Treatment – Day Treatment

  • Home
  • Day Treatment (PHP)

Our partial hospitalization program (PHP), is a one-of-a-kind treatment program based on our CAST Alignment Model that is designed to help clients achieve lasting recovery. The PHP day treatment level of care meets Monday – Friday during the day to help people with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, dual diagnosis and addiction. We offer support in a safe, secure, and comfortable environment that provides psychoeducational group therapy in conjunction with individual therapy and case management.

“My experience at CAST was phenomenal. I went in broken, sick, anxiety ridden and so disappointed in myself. The clinical staff and the clients made me feel welcomed, encouraged and supported.”

What is Partial Hospitalization Treatment?

Day treatment, also known as partial hospitalization program (PHP) provides a less intensive level of treatment than inpatient hospitalization or a residential treatment program. PHP day treatment is also more intensive than an outpatient program (OP) or one on one therapy.

Some people enter PHP day treatment therapy after a residential inpatient level of care or hospitalization. This helps with the transition back home by providing structure and support as well as a safe place to continue to work on intimate issues.

Clients can also come directly into the PHP level of care before their mental health or substance use requires inpatient treatment. Many clients at CAST Centers have been working with a therapist and psychiatrist but find they need more support and structure.

While in CAST Centers PHP day treatment clients can continue to see their individual therapist and psychiatrist. We encourage our clients to sign releases of information that allow the CAST Centers clinical team to communicate with those other providers so we are all working together.

How Do I Know if a Day PHP Treatment is Right For Me?

Whether a PHP day treatment is right for you depends, in part, on your stage of recovery or healing process. If you’re leaving a treatment facility or a hospital program, but feel you still need help and support, or you were referred by your healthcare provider, partial hospitalization treatment might be just what you need. Returning to life at home immediately after treatment can be a challenge. If you don’t feel you’re ready, CAST’s PHP is a good solution.

The difference between being in a residential treatment facility and living at home can make for a more significant treatment experience. In residential treatment clients are under constant supervision—once you get home, you’re no longer supervised. This can make it tough to stay confident, healthy and maintain progress on goals.

PHP treatment is designed to bridge the gap between residential treatment and home, but may also be appropriate for people who do not need a residential level of care. 

Oftentimes clients in PHP have taken a leave of absence from work or school to do intensive therapy.  PHP allows the client to do intensive work that could never be achieved in weekly one one one counseling sessions. Additionally, by attending PHP during the day clients get to put what they learned into real world practice immediately.

What Does CAST’s Day Treatment PHP Treat?

People come to our day treatment PHP for many reasons including anxiety and/or depression. Others struggle with bipolar disorder. Some people seek to end the cycle of substance abuse. Many people who struggle with addiction will have underlying anxiety and depression that if not treated correctly can lead to continued use of alcohol and drugs.

We have the experienced staff and the necessary tools to treat all the above in a calm, comforting, and structured environment.

What Should I Expect From CAST’s PHP Program?

Our PHP program meets Monday – Friday for group therapy sessions. Each client is assigned a primary therapist that they meet with for one-on-one therapy session. You and the CAST Centers clinical team will be working together to develop a treatment program to meet your individual goals and needs. This process includes case management that helps coordinate care with other providers like a psychiatrist or therapist that the client has been working with.

As clients progress in the PHP level of care we work closely with insurance companies to maximize benefit coverage and coordinate the transition to IOP that is a less intensive treatment schedule. The length of time in PHP will vary from person to person based on their clinical needs. 

The CAST Alignment Model

The CAST Alignment Model (CAM) is a key feature of our PHP treatment. The CAM is a unique method of treatment that addresses your need to integrate your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual selves. This model uses therapeutic tools to help you define your goals and take responsibility for achieving them.

We designed the CAM using evidence based practices including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, safety seeking, mindfulness, motivational interviewing and more. 

At CAST, our core philosophy sets us apart. We believe awareness and empowerment can transform you and allow you to live the life you want, free from the issues that hold you back. Our partial hospitalization treatment programs are designed to provide you with guidance and support as you learn to improve your mental, emotional, and spiritual self.

Throughout your PHP treatment journey, a CAM facilitator will guide your recovery and help you define and work toward your goals. We’ll customize the CAM to suit your needs and goals and provide you with therapy options to help you in your unique recovery.


Your enduring recovery and path to healing is most important. Spending part of your journey in partial hospitalization might be exactly the healing you need. We would love to answer any questions you have!
