Partial Hospitalization (PHP) PHP is for medically stable individuals who live in a supportive environment and have daily transportation for on-campus programming. Partial hospitalization is comparable to rehab, but allows the patient to return home nightly.
Involvement in 12-step recovery groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA) or Cocaine Anonymous (CA) is emphasized.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP) IOP offers group therapy several days or evenings per week. Education is offered to individuals and their families through special weekly family programming.

The disease of addiction often affects the entire family. When Melinda’s mother, Adell, was struggling with alcoholism, Melinda found herself feeling hopeless.
“Before my mother embraced treatment and recovery, I was certain that her addiction was going to kill her,” said Melinda. “I came to Fairbanks because I didn’t know what else to do, or where else to go. I just knew that we needed help. I told my mother that I couldn’t help her, but I knew a place that could.” That place was Fairbanks.
“Recovery means bringing life back to a loved one, and it has truly been a blessing for her, our family and me,” said Melinda. “I’m indebted to Fairbanks forever.” READ MELINDA'S STORY>>
“For me rock bottom isn’t a place, it’s a feeling,” added Frank.
Frank chose recovery on September 13, 1996 when he came to Fairbanks. Although he had attempted sobriety many other times, this time he wanted it for good.
“Fairbanks had my best interest,” said Frank. “Everyone at Fairbanks helped me get honest and cut through the denial to see who I really was.” According to Frank one of the ways he stays sober is through volunteering at Fairbanks with the adolescents. For him, it is how he gives back.
“Life today is 180 degrees different from what it was when I was using,” said Frank. “It’s not what I have, it’s how I feel.” READ FRANK'S STORY>>
Mindy, a graduate of Hope Academy, Fairbanks recovery-focused high school, learned an important lesson during her stay — the importance of being honest.
“I learned I had to be honest with myself,” Mindy says. “I had been lying to myself.”
Mindy immediately clicked with the staff, but the expectations were different than what she was used to.
“They weren’t just focused on your grades. They were focused on your sobriety, too.”
Mindy graduated from Hope Academy on May 28th, 2010, and has enrolled at IVY Tech Community College. After she finishes at IVY Tech she wants to earn a degree in mortuary sciences, but is committed to taking life one day at a time.
