My family member will be discharged from another treatment program. They suggested “step-down” services. What are those, and can I get them at your program?

If discharge planning suggests “step-down services,” this means a lower level of care is advised. Phoenix House’s continuum of care allows clients to move from more intensive to less intensive treatment or vice versa. We offer many different step-down services, including our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Our Partial Hospitalization Program provides a structured course of clinical groups and activities for four to six hours per day, seven days per week. Our seven-day Intensive Outpatient Program provides a similar course for three to five hours per day, seven days per week. We often can combine levels of therapeutic services with room, board, and supervision.
