IOP(Intensive Outpatient Program)
About Intensive Outpatient Services (IOP)
IOP is a primary treatment program recmmended in some circumstances by a clinical and medical assessment. IOP maybe recommended for those who do not need medically-supervised detox or higher level of care for mental health/Eating Disorder. IOP can also enable people in mental health trauma recovery to continue their recovery therapies following successful detox or inpatient discharge, on a part-time yet intensive schedule, designed to accommodate work and family life. We work from the Cognitive Behavioral Model with all of our therapeutic approaches. What makes our program "unique" is that we offer:
Case management if needed
Transportation (Adults only in rural areas)
On site Psychiatrist for Medication Management
On site RN for nursing assessments and follow up for Eating Disorders
Flex payment plan for un-insured or under-insured
In the Intensive Outpatient Treatment program, you are able to establish a foundation for long term support in your local community right from the start of your treatment, instead of waiting until you return from living away in a rehab center or inpatient psychaitric facility. You receive services primarily through group therapy, but are also assigned an indiviual therapist you will meet with on a weekly basis while in treatment as well as a psychiatrist for the duration of your eight week treatment. Some treatment may last longer, depending on the severity of the patient's symtems. Groups are small and generally do not exceed 10 people, allowing for a safe environment. Each patient is assigned a therapist for continuity of care for the duration of the program and meets with that therapist weekly for the duration of eight weeks.
