Adult Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. or 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The IOP can be a helpful resource for providers treating individuals with chronic diagnoses who are seeking to learn effective coping and preventive awareness skills. Participants engage in group therapy, during which they process and explore real-life situations as they happen and practice newly acquired healthy behavioral skills. Our multidisciplinary clinical team individually manages the treatment needs of program participants.

Benefits of the Adult IOP

  • The IOP can act as a step-down program for hospitalized patients. It is an effective tool to shorten inpatient length of stay. It can also be utilized to avoid inpatient admission.
  • The IOP offers patients and providers a more immediate alternative to traditional outpatient care when the need is urgent and waiting for an outpatient appointment is not clinically appropriate.
  • The program’s flexible schedule can benefit working adults on leave of absence or who need extended follow-up care.

Topics included in the IOP

  • Managing depression and anxiety
  • Guilt and shame
  • Crisis management
  • Family dynamics
  • Healthy relationships
  • Community resources
  • Healthy boundaries
  • Coping with change
