Partial Hospitalization Program for Addiction Recovery

Recovery from substance abuse isn’t easy. No matter the circumstances that lead to drug dependency, the journey is different for everyone. Some people have relatively straightforward addictions that seem manageable on the surface. Others struggle with co-occurring mental health conditions and other secondary afflictions that make recovery from addiction even more difficult than usual. At Illuminate Recovery, we understand that every person’s path to recovery is unique to their experience. We strive to provide individualized care that meets each patient’s specific needs.

Illuminate Recovery offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) in Scottsdale, Arizona that is ideal for individuals who do not require constant supervision or more extensive treatment. As the name suggests, the Illuminate Recovery PHP is a day program. Patients of the Illuminate Recovery PHP remain in our treatment center for six hours per day, then go home or return to supervised sober living housing. The flexibility this type of program offers means people can seek the substance abuse treatment and therapies they need for recovery while still managing their day-to-day responsibilities and even maintaining their jobs in some cases.

How Does PHP Work?

PHP at Illuminate Recovery offers treatment five days a week. Patients enter the treatment facility for six hours, during which time they may participate in a variety of treatment activities including:

 Psychotherapy. Illuminate Recovery offers a range of one-on-one counseling and therapy services as well as group sessions that allow our patients to learn from and support each other during the recovery process. Behavioral health services allow patients to explore the psychological sides of their substance abuse disorders. Illuminate Recovery offers family therapy as well.


Educational Courses. Illuminate Recovery offers a wide range of educational materials for our patients, which are accessible during individual and group sessions. These courses provide valuable insights into different aspects of addiction and offer resources to use in recovery and beyond. People overcoming addiction can learn new skills, prepare to reenter the workforce, and find new hobbies and interests that could potentially lead to rewarding careers.

Recreational Therapy. The recovery process is different for everyone, but enjoyable physical activity has an undeniably positive effect on every person who undergoes the substance abuse treatment process. By providing a gym membership at no cost the client, Illuminate Recovery offers a range of recreational activities that are both fun and engaging.



Medication Assisted Treatment. Many forms of addiction wreak havoc on the body and mind. Because of this, our professional staff will incorporate the use of MAT into our PHP program where needed. Our team can also provide dietary and nutritional support. Many patients who undergo the substance abuse recovery process learn the value of healthy living and develop better eating habits thanks to the things they learn during treatment.


At Illuminate Recovery, we develop individualized care plans for every patient we treat. PHP may be the first step in a tiered addiction recovery plan. Typically, individuals who start with PHP will then go into IOP and then on to a lower level of outpatient care before they graduate their full 30 to 90-day program with us.

Evidence-Based Addiction Therapy in a Supportive Environment

Research proves that substance abuse treatment is most effective when it involves a full continuum of care to address all aspects of a patient’s addiction. Sometimes, addiction results from an injury that the patient did not expect to sustain, and reliance on painkillers to get through each day eventually evolved into full-blown addiction. In other cases, family problems push people to seek validation and escape through substance abuse. Still others self-medicate with alcohol and illicit drugs to cope with underlying mental health disorders that never fully received professional attention.

Illuminate Recovery strives to provide a holistic recovery experience for every patient – regardless of what lead them to our doors. Our PHP is designed to provide a sense of freedom while empowering our patients during recovery. We ensure they have as many tools, resources, and therapies as possible for their recovery journey. Cognitive behavioral therapy, medical treatment, family therapy, one-on-one psychotherapy, and motivational interviewing are just a few of the evidence-based treatments available through the Illuminate Recovery PHP.

What to Expect from our PHP for Addiction

The Illuminate Recovery outpatient program generally begins with Partial Hospitalization. While in this higher level of care the individual is attending day groups and classes for 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. The individuals can return home afterwards, but in many cases our patients stay in a gender specific sober living house near the facility.


Here are some answers to other frequently asked questions about the PHP at Illuminate Recovery in Scottsdale, Arizona:

How Long Does One Stay in PHP?

Our Partial Hospitalization Program is designed to meet the unique needs of each individual. The average length of treatment is 30-90 days, but varies per individualized treatment response. One might be in PHP for a couple weeks or maybe a full month before moving into the IOP level.

What is PHP versus Inpatient, Residential Care?

Although PHP still offers a higher level of care than other outpatient programs, there are residential programs where the patient lives and receives care at the same facility.

PHP still allows a person struggling with an addiction to experience recovery services in a safe, supportive, and controlled environment. However, it comes with the added benefit of allowing patients who do not require constant supervision to go about their normal lives. This level of freedom allows others who aren’t able to be in full-time recovery to get the care they need. The PHP at Illuminate Recovery encourages clients to embrace recovery more completely.

What if I need Detox? Can I go to PHP?

When you call Illuminate Recovery, we will review your concerns and perform an assessment of your medical needs. If medical detox is deemed necessary, we will work with you and your insurance provider to ensure you receive drug or alcohol detox services before you enter into our PHP program.

Do you offer Sober Living Houses?

Some patients at Illuminate Recovery may not have the option to live at home while in treatment. In these situations, we can arrange temporary living accommodations with our partner The Sobriety Experience. These living arrangements can become foundational for the recovery process as a patient will meet others in similar circumstances and develop support networks and lasting friendships

What is the Benefit of PHP at Illuminate Recovery?

The biggest benefit of our program is receiving a higher level of care in a more flexible environment. Not everyone needs residential care or the restrictions of an inpatient program. We

believe that having the separation between day care at the outpatient facility and free time at night in a residential environment offers a more balanced and practical recovery experience.

Individuals in our care learn to balance treatment and freedom with the support of an addiction treatment center and our attentive, experienced staff to guide them through the recovery process.

How do you Ensure your Patients are Safe and Sober?

Because we do offer flexibility, one question we get is how we can monitor our client’s sobriety.

We implement a variety of safeguard measures to ensure patients maintain sobriety during the course of PHP treatment, including random drug screenings.
