Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient Programs are group sessions designed for patients where individual therapy has been ineffective or for those where hospitalization is more than what is needed. These sessions meet 3x/wk for 3 hours each session. The programs are typically 21 sessions over seven weeks.

An IOP is often recommended for individuals who do not require medical supervision and can live at home. This type of program is designed to accommodate work/family schedules and begin a long term recovery. The Behavioral Wellness Group offers four types of IOPs. One IOP is for individuals with a dual diagnosis of both a chemical dependency and mental health disorder. The Group also offers a Health and Wellness IOP created for those with a mental, an emotional and/or physical condition working to regain life coping skills. The third is the daytime or evening Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) IOP for those struggling with intense emotions along with isolation and self-harming behaviors or thoughts. The fourth is for adolescents who need to focus more intensely on developing healthy coping skills. We also offer Adult and Adolescent Aftercare Programs.
