Partial hospitalization is a service modality that some have suggested is incompatible with both evidence-based and recovery-oriented treatment. The purpose of this study was to examine the accuracy of this assumption. Toward this end, a specific partial hospitalization program was examined using administrative data, self-reports regarding recovery orientation, and fidelity ratings from independent assessors. Findings support that the partial hospitalization program studied has reasonable lengths of stay, provides recovery-oriented services, and has implemented evidence-based practices. We conclude that partial hospitalization programs have the potential to become part of an evidence-based and recovery-oriented system.
