Partial Hospitalization and Day Treatment

In this modality, clients live at home and receive services in a day program for several hours a day. Treatment may take place in a hospital or in a treatment center after detoxification. There are a number of advantages to this type of program. Professional services are available to assist with clients' psychological, medical, and educational needs, yet they can live at home and thus begin to mend families wounded by alcoholism. In addition, this type of treatment is much less expensive that inpatient treatment.
