Adult IOP

Our Adult Mental Health IOP is designed for treatment of adults age 18 and over, with primary psychiatric or substance abuse diagnoses. It is designed to meet the needs of those clients who do not require hospitalization or as a support to avoid the admission to a hospital or residential facility. The Adult Intensive Outpatient Program may serve as a transition from a higher level care or as a support to avoid admission to a higher level of care because of failure in outpatient therapy.

We offer specialized programs that are tailor-made to serve the individual needs of people from all walks of life, from the highly skilled trained professional to the unskilled chronically mentally ill. Our services are offered in a comfortable and relaxed setting structured specifically to address mental and/or emotional difficulties enhanced by a positive and affirming atmosphere.

We provide psychiatric assessments and treatment through a behavioral model for a wide range of mental health problems including depression, anxiety, psychotic disorders, substance abuse, stress-related   disorders, trauma, anger issues and psychological disorders related to medical conditions. Our behavioral   model approach allows and encourages the client to actively engage in the treatment process through participation in the development of their own individualized treatment goals and the utilization of therapeutic tools gained.  Our aim is to assist clients through group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, and community resource support to reach their optimal potential.

The curriculum focuses on helping the client to experience success through making the connection between thoughts and behavior with the ultimate goal of building self-confidence, developing insights and skills that leads to lifelong mental health stability.

Through treatment the client will: establish short and long term goals, improve communication skills, improve coping skills, improve problem solving skills, identify strengths and weaknesses, identify and alter    distorted thoughts and beliefs, modify dysfunctional and destructive behavior patterns, and participate and complete therapeutic homework assignments.

Group topics include: illness management, medication management, self-esteem building, assertiveness, addiction education, anger management, learning to set boundaries, socialization/relationship skills, stress management, dealing with anxiety and depression, and developing life skills.

Adult IOP meets during the day on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9:30am-12:30pm and at night on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 5:30pm-8:30pm
