About

Substance abuse is a serious medical concern, adversely impacting the readiness and health of 2% of service members. The Addiction Medicine Partial Hospitalization Program (AMPHP) provides intensive outpatient drug and alcohol services to active duty service members struggling with addiction.

AMPHP provides services for a minimum of 9 hours per week (Level 2.1) for at least 30 days (an alternative to hospitalization) or 8 hours a day (Level 2.5) for two to four weeks as a step down program following release from hospitalization.

The AMPHP staff consists of a comprehensive multidisciplinary team of professionals which includes a psychiatrist, social worker, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors, administrative leadership, support staff and more.

Treatment at the AMPHP includes evidence-based individual, group, family, and medication treatments for substance abuse. The treatment team uses a multi-disciplinary approach to develop each service member's plan of substance use recovery, including addressing needs for service members with multiple psychological health concerns. AMPHP services do not include acute drug and alcohol detoxification.

Addiction Medicine Partial Hospitalization Program Philosophy

Substance addiction/dependency is a progressive and chronic disease which is treatable. AMRTF treatment is focused on evidence-based behavioral interventions for reducing substance use, including motivational interviewing, 12-step recovery models, and other adjunct support therapies for treating addictions. This disease affects couples and families; therefore, our treatment approach emphasizes the importance of involving significant others together on the journey toward recovery.

Substance use disorders are detrimental to the military's operational readiness and command climate, and are inconsistent with the Army Values and the Warrior Ethos. The Army strives to be free from all effects of alcohol and drugs. Alcohol and drug use can seriously damage physical and mental health, jeopardize the safety of individuals and others, and can lead to criminal, disciplinary, and other administrative actions.

At the AMPHP, we offer military personnel the opportunity to engage in an intensive outpatient treatment regimen to become better educated about the disease and participate in treatment, while accepting responsibility for one's behavior.
