If you do not have prior knowledge of how to seek a suitable treatment for your mental health or addiction problem, it is easy to fall into the dilemma of which outpatient treatment is right for you.
Patients tend to directly enter into PHP after completing their detoxification or inpatient treatment. In most cases, PHP requires the patient to be available for treatment on a daily basis. The main difference is that more of the patient’s time is required each day compared to the IOP. PHP programs usually last about 5-6 hours per day, 3-5 days per week.
PHP programs have significant amounts of individual and group therapy where they are taught better coping mechanisms to deal with their stress as alternatives to turning to alcohol and drug abuse for solace or self-medication. It is with regard that PHP is sometimes referred to as day-treatment, to capture the idea that a patient will be receiving care on a nearly full-time basis during the day and allowed to go home in the evenings.
The difference between an IOP and a PHP is subtle but important. The program that’s right for you will depend on many factors, including whether you’ve been in treatment before and whether you have a strong support system at home. The most important difference between IOP and PHP is that:
-PHP programs usually last about 5-6 hours per day, 3-5 days per week.
-IOP programs usually last approximately 3-4 hours per day, 3-5 days a week.

This is a great program, the treatment team was great and really helped me to learn to curb my cravings and reduce behaviors that I didn’t even realize had been harming me
Overland IOP completely helped me to recover from many anxieties and depressive thoughts I had prior to attending treatment here. They provided me with the tools to move on and live life on life’s terms. Therapist, group facilitators, case workers are very professional. I would recommend this place to anyone with addiction and/or mental health issues. I owe my newfound freedom and happiness to this place and it’s wonderful staff!

Very satisfied with my experience! Overland offered me the support that I needed to overcome my mental health obstacles. My therapist was extremely helpful, supportive, and always knew when to ask the right questions. The sessions I had with my therapist helped me address underlying factors in order to go about achieving stability in a constructive fashion. After visiting, I can say that I have much more direction and understanding when dealing with adverse scenarios than before. thanks so much!

Overland was a great experience. I really appreciate the staff and sense of community that was created there. I made lifelong friends that are there for me no matter what and that will help me continue this journey of recovery. The groups are helpful and helped me gain great insight into myself and my addiction. I’m super grateful I was able to find a treatment center that cared so much about me as an individual.
