The partial hospitalization program (PHP) at Swift River in Massachusetts takes place Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
There is significantly more freedom afforded to those participating in the PHP program at Swift River than those attending inpatient treatment.
Purpose of PHP Program
One purpose of the PHP program is to provide an opportunity for those who have recently completed the inpatient rehab program to implement the skills they learned in treatment.
This transitional program also provides more structure and supervision than a standard outpatient program.
The professional staff at Swift River understands the importance of fostering independence while maintaining clearly defined consequences for the decisions each participant chooses to make.

PHP is the most structured, but offers a variety of social activities as reinforcement for adhering to the recommendations of the program.
