Partial Hospitalization Program
Near Fort Worth, TX

A Partial Hospitalization Program, or PHP, is a type of outpatient drug addiction treatment. A PHP usually lasts for 30 days (could be longer or shorter) and requires 4-6 hours of treatment during the day for several days throughout the week. Because this is outpatient treatment, patients don’t have to spend the night in our facility. Even though overnight stay isn’t required, patients still receive a high level of care and monitoring during their treatment.

Who needs a Partial Hospitalization Program?

PHPs provide more intensive treatment for drug and substance addictions. The following people may need a Partial Hospitalization Program:

  • have a co-occurring mental health condition and require dual diagnosis treatment
  • have a long history of drug and substance abuse
  • have a strong drug or substance abuse problem
  • have a history of multiple relapses

What to expect at Mallard Lake Detox Center

PHPs at Mallard Lake Detox Center are comprehensive and include many programs during treatment. Although each patient’s care plan is personalized, this is what you can expect – all in a luxury, resort-style environment.


Alcohol and drug addiction education

Treatment begins with educating patients about the effects of alcohol and drugs. People are often not aware how substances affect their body and how addiction works. Substance abuse education helps people learn about their addiction so they can understand how to overcome it.



Individual and group therapy is now part of many outpatient treatment programs. You can expect to attend these sessions throughout the week during treatment. You may also have the option of attending therapy online.



If you have a co-existing condition, such as anxiety, panic attacks, or depression, a doctor may recommend you take medication during outpatient addiction treatment to help alleviate any symptoms that could interfere with your treatment for drug addiction.


Group outings and activities

It’s possible you’ll go on group trips or participate in activities with other patients seeking drug addiction treatment. You may go on a group hike, visit a scenic location, or do other activities as part of a group.
