Intensive Outpatient

Intensive Outpatient Program

An IOP is a mental health service line that is considered a higher level of care, compared to traditional outpatient therapy, where you will be in group therapy three hours a day, three days a week. This structured program offers evidenced-based best practices, to address a variety of mood disorders, including depression and anxiety. In addition to the groups, patients will attend 1-hour of individual therapy and 1-hour of medication management, weekly.

What should you expect from IOP?

IOPs are referred to as “intensive” because they have the intensity to provide the change through therapies. Unlike an inpatient program, an IOP offers patients the ability to receive treatment while still living at home and engaging in their personal lives, allowing individuals to attend IOP without disrupting their work, routine, or relationships. The IOP therapy session includes a rare combination of group and individual therapies that help an individual to manage both behavioral and emotional issues they might be having already.

What does group therapy look like?

A cornerstone of IOP is the group therapy sessions. These therapist-guided sessions can be much more helpful for recovery, than individual sessions alone. Groups can act as a support network and a sounding board. Regularly talking and listening to others helps patients put their own problems in perspective, and give a sense of relief, knowing you’re not alone. Furthermore, our therapists have specialized training, teaching group members proven strategies for managing specific problems.
