Day Treatment
Partial Hospitalization (PHP)


Day treatment, known specifically in North Carolina as Substance Abuse Comprehensive Outpatient Treatment (SACOT) or Partial Hospitalization (PHP), meets 5 days a week for 5 hours
each day. This program offers structure and purpose and is considered critical for one in very early recovery for substance use disorder and addiction.

NorthStar’s PHP level of care is holistic in scope and provides the beginning skill sets necessary to obtain sober living. In other words, those first few weeks of sobriety are a vulnerable time

for both the person getting sober, their families, and primary support persons. Accordingly, focused attention is spent personally with each client to ensure biological and emotional stabilization as well as skill development. Getting sober entails different mechanisms and is different for each person and NorthStar Clinical Services is dedicated to ensuring a personalized and successful treatment experience.

Upon program entry each person obtains a primary therapist who works with you consistently during the PHP experience. At NorthStar one’s primary therapist is not only a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist but is also a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor or Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of North Carolina. This is important because knowledge of the whole person, not just the substance use disorder, is essential in understanding the complexities and the total components of the disease of addiction. In other words, discovering and treating underlying issues is foremost in the treatment process and critical for ongoing and long-term sobriety. Simply put, the NorthStar experience is safe, educational, and fun and indeed becomes “a place you look forward to.”
