Seastone Partial Hospitalization Program and Intensive Outpatient Treatment


Seastone offers different levels of care so that you receive exactly the care you require. We have two levels of outpatient treatment. Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

The difference between PHP and IOP is the level and intensity of treatment provided. PHP clients typically spend between 25-30 hours per week working on their recovery broken down into 5-6 hours per day for five days a week.  IOP clients report to treatment approximately three times per week for 3-4 hours each time.

Both PHP and IOP utilize a mix of different types of therapy to address and change the distorted thinking which led to addiction. Group therapy, peer support and individual therapy.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is utilized to sever the unhealthy connection between an addict’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors. CBT helps the addict to see themselves and the world more clearly. In addition, CBT teaches better stress management techniques and helps to increase self esteem. With clarity, improved stress management and higher self esteem, our clients envision themselves living a drug and alcohol free, happy and healthy life.

Peer support is crucial in early recovery. Peer supports obvious value, one addict helping another, also allows clients to see themselves through the eyes of their peers. It helps to establish trust which is necessary for recovery and forms important social bonds. Peer support allows a client to see what works for others in recovery and it provides the foundation for future work and maintenance with various outside long term support groups.
