Battling mental issues and substance use disorder is a daily struggle for many. At Elliot Health System, our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) hopes to end the stigma and help those struggling.
The multidisciplinary team creates an individualized treatment plan for each patient to address both substance use and mental health issues. They also focus on aftercare.
Carol Furlong, LCMHC, MAC, MBA, Director of Substance Use Disorders Services, talks about why the PHP is great for patients and the true heroes she gets to work with.
