Cliffside Malibu Partial Hospitalization Program

PHP (Partial Hospitalization Program) can sometimes be referred to as day rehab. It allows someone seeking treatment to have the intensity of residential recovery programs but to return to their own home at night. It has many of the same components of inpatient full-time residential programs, but is less structured and tailored for outpatient services.

PHP is the middle ground between full-time in-patient care and outpatient program. The patient will participate in multiple programs every day, utilizing an array of treatments to help with their detoxification and recovery. At the end of the day, they then return to their own homes and will return the next day.

Some of these programs can include individual and group therapy, family therapy, music, and art therapy, as well as support groups and counseling.
