At Rubicon Recovery, our Partial Care Program is specifically designed to address the urgent need for effective addiction treatment in the face of New Jersey’s escalating overdose crisis. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, the state witnessed a staggering 3,056 overdose deaths in 2021, equating to an age-adjusted rate of 32.4 deaths per 100,000 people. This alarming statistic underscores the critical importance of accessible, comprehensive treatment options for individuals battling substance use disorders.

Understanding the devastating impact of overdose deaths in our community, Rubicon Recovery is committed to offering a lifeline to those in need. Our Partial Care Program represents just one aspect of our dedication to combatting the overdose epidemic by fostering healing, resilience, and hope for a brighter future.

What Is A Partial Care Program?

Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs) for addiction are a type of structured outpatient treatment that provides an intensive level of care while allowing patients to live at home or in a halfway house. This approach is often seen as a middle ground between inpatient (residential) treatment and traditional outpatient programs. 

PHPs are more intensive than standard outpatient programs in that they require patients to attend treatment sessions several days a week, often for multiple hours each day. Treatment sessions can last anywhere from 6 to 8 hours per day, and the program itself can span several weeks or months, depending on individual needs.

Who Is The Partial Hospitalization Program For?

When it comes to addiction recovery, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Among the various options available, Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs) stand out as a vital middle ground in the spectrum of care. But who exactly is best suited for a PHP?

Here are people who’ll benefit from Partial Hospitalization Addiction Programs:

Transitioning from Inpatient Care: Individuals stepping down from our inpatient rehab facility often find PHPs to be an ideal next step. It allows them to continue receiving intensive treatment while adapting to life outside the rehab center.

Moderate to Severe Addiction Cases: Our PHP programs are well-suited for individuals with moderate to severe addiction who don’t require round-the-clock supervision but still need substantial support and structure.

Relapse Prevention: If you have a history of relapse, our PHP program will provide you with a more structured environment than standard outpatient programs, which can be crucial in maintaining sobriety.

Co-occurring Disorders: Individuals with dual diagnoses (i.e, those who have a substance use disorder along with a mental health condition) often benefit from our PHP programs due to our comprehensive approach that addresses both issues concurrently.

Commitment to Recovery: PHPs demand a significant time commitment and active participation. They are best suited for individuals who are committed to their recovery journey and can adhere to the program schedule.

Our Approach To Partial Care In New Jersey

At Rubicon Recovery, our approach to Partial Care is deeply rooted in the understanding that each individual’s journey to recovery is unique. Drawing from a wealth of therapeutic modalities, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Relapse Prevention, and more, we craft a treatment experience that is as distinctive as the individuals we serve. Our program is designed to address a broad spectrum of challenges, from grief and family dynamics to conflict resolution and mindfulness, ensuring a holistic path to wellness.

Upon entering our Partial Care program, clients are met with a compassionate team of licensed clinicians and medical staff who begin the process by thoroughly assessing their basic demographics and specific needs during intake. This initial step is crucial in developing a personalized treatment plan that resonates with each person’s unique story, strengths, and recovery goals. Our commitment to creating a tailored treatment experience underscores our belief that personalization is key to effective recovery.

Rubicon Recovery is more than just a treatment center; we are a supportive community and a guiding hand. For individuals requiring services beyond our scope, such as detox or residential care, our team steps in as a behavioral healthcare navigator. Leveraging our extensive professional network across the tri-state area, we assist with everything from insurance verification to arranging transportation, ensuring that you or your loved one is connected with the appropriate care. Our goal is to demystify the treatment process, making it as straightforward and accessible as possible.

Why Choose Our Partial Care Program at Rubicon Recovery Center?

Our Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs) offer a range of benefits, making them an effective choice for certain individuals battling substance use disorders.

Here are some of the key benefits of our Partial Hospitalization Addiction Program:

Intensive Treatment with Flexibility: Our PHP gives you a structured and intensive treatment environment similar to inpatient programs but with the added benefit of allowing you to return home each day. This setup is perfect if you have responsibilities at home or at work but still need a high level of care.

Balance Between Inpatient and Outpatient Care: Our PHP serves as a middle ground between the round-the-clock supervision of inpatient care and the more independent setting of traditional outpatient programs. If you are transitioning from an inpatient program, you’ll benefit very much from our PHP.

Access to a Range of Therapies and Treatments: Like inpatient programs, our PHP offers you a variety of therapeutic interventions, including individual therapy, group counseling, family therapy, and sometimes medication-assisted treatment. This way, we can approach and address different aspects of addiction and mental health.

Building a Support Network: Participating in our PHP allows you to connect with others who are going through similar experiences. This peer support is a vital part of recovery, giving you an environment of mutual understanding and encouragement.

Developing Coping Strategies: In our PHP, we include educational components that teach you coping strategies and life skills to manage triggers and prevent relapse. 

Continuity of Care: If you are just stepping down from an inpatient program, our PHP is an opportunity to continue treatment while gradually reintegrating into your everyday life. This continuity is crucial in maintaining the gains made during inpatient treatment and in preventing relapse.

Ability to Monitor Physical Health: Our PHP often includes regular health monitoring, which is very useful if you are recovering from substance abuse, as it can take a toll on your physical health. Regular check-ups and medical support ensure that any health issues are addressed promptly.

Cost-Effectiveness: While offering a high level of care, PHPs are generally less expensive than inpatient programs because they don’t include the cost of 24/7 accommodation. This makes them a more accessible option for many.

Customized Treatment Plans: Treatment plans in our PHPs are tailored to your specific needs, taking into account your unique situation, type of addiction, and any co-occurring mental health disorders.

Focus on Long-Term Recovery: By teaching practical life skills and coping mechanisms and providing ongoing support, we focus on equipping you with the tools you need for long-term sobriety rather than just short-term treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Other Programs Are Offered at Rubicon?

In addition to our Partial Care offering, Rubicon Recovery is proud to provide two other pivotal treatment options: Intensive Outpatient (IOP) and Outpatient (OP) programs. Each program is designed to meet individuals at different stages of their recovery journey, ensuring a continuum of care that adapts to varying needs and commitments.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): This program is tailored for those who require a significant level of support and structure but can engage in their recovery without the need for full-time care. Meeting several times a week for a few hours each session, the IOP allows individuals to continue living at home and maintain work or family obligations while participating in a comprehensive schedule of therapy. Sessions include a mix of individual counseling, group therapy, and educational workshops, focusing on relapse prevention, coping strategies, and skill-building to manage the challenges of recovery.

Outpatient Program (OP): Our Outpatient program offers flexibility for those transitioning from more intensive levels of care or for individuals seeking support while managing their daily responsibilities. With a less frequent meeting schedule, the OP focuses on reinforcing recovery skills, providing ongoing support, and ensuring individuals have the resources to sustain their sobriety in the long term. Therapy sessions, peer support groups, and educational activities are designed to fit into the participants’ lives, promoting growth and recovery while accommodating personal and professional commitments.
