Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a short-term form of intensive rehab, usually for those with acute symptoms that are hard to manage but don’t require 24-hour care. PHPs have structured programming (i.e. individual and/or group therapy), and usually meet 3-5 days a week for around 6 hours (i.e. 9am-3m). Some PHPs are residential (patients sleep on site) and some are not, so patients sleep at home. PHPs can last from 1-6 months, and some offer transportation and meals.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.
After treatment, addiction treatment can be frightening for newly sober people. Aftercare support provided by Stonington Institute is designed to give resources and help on a continued basis. It can involve finding housing in and around Connecticut, setting up 12-step meeting groups, continued medical monitoring, and counseling.

Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) is a variation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) that helps people understand how maladaptive, negative, and habitual thoughts and feelings lead to bad life choices. REBT is based on the idea that people operate under many irrational but habitual patterns of thought that fuel harmful practices.
The first three steps depend on the patient, so they are more specific and situational. The succeeding four steps center on practical issues brought on by substance abuse. Steps 8 and 9 deal with the social and emotional repercussions of addiction, encouraging patients to make amends to people they have wronged. These are followed by two steps revolving around the further exploration and reinforcement of Steps 1 to 9.
The last step requires an individual to extend a helping hand to people who are still in the early stages of their recovery.
