Outpatient mental health services we offer

We also offer outpatient behavioral health programs. These are for individuals who don't need inpatient therapy but require more than the occasional outpatient therapy appointment. Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) and intensive outpatient program (IOP) use group therapy to equip individuals with tools and knowledge to cope with difficult life experiences and mental health conditions.

Adult Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Our PHP is a structured treatment option for those who have completed inpatient or residential treatment but still need the support of a structured mental health program. The PHP is also appropriate if your mental health needs are greater than what your current outpatient providers can meet.

Monday through Friday | 8:00am to 12:30pm

During this three-week program, individuals participate in group therapy four hours per day, five days per week. A nurse practitioner and attending physician provide medication management. Group sessions offered at the PHP help individuals learn and apply vital coping skills for managing mental illness.

Adult Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

The six-week adult IOP is less intensive than the PHP and provides flexibility and accountability to integrate healthy coping into your daily life. It introduces evidence-based group topics and coping strategies each week. For example, recovery thinking, emotion signals, safe action, healthy communication, expression and relapse prevention. The adult IOP has three tracks:

Mental health IOP

Depression IOP

Monday through Thursday | 1:00pm to 4:00pm

The group sessions in the depression track are designed to help you manage thoughts and feelings of hopelessness with a cognitive behavioral approach. We teach techniques to improve mood and well-being, such as compassionate self-talk, emotion regulation skills, self-advocacy, behavioral diaries and cognitive restructuring.

Anxiety IOP

Monday through Thursday | 1:00pm to 4:00pm

The anxiety track focus on evidence-based techniques to decrease symptoms, avoidant behaviors and destructive self-talk. You will learn how to reengage in your life with the help of healthy coping skills, such as grounding techniques, mindfulness exercises and setting boundaries.

Co-occurring substance use IOP

Monday through Thursday | 1:00pm to 4:00pm

The co-occurring substance use track helps you identify personal obstacles to achieving and maintaining sobriety. You will learn how to better act on your goals and values through group topics such as self-care and emotion regulation.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) IOP

Monday through Thursday | 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Medically Assisted Therapies (MAT) may be provided for clients with opioid and/or alcohol use disorders. This medically supervised intervention provides prescribed medication to reduce cravings and other uncomfortable symptoms related to discontinuation of their substance of abuse. Clients seeking MAT are required to participate in all groups of the Co-Occurring Substance Use track for the full 6 weeks.

Adolescent intensive outpatient program (IOP)

Our multidisciplinary team is committed to providing you with adolescent behavioral health services tailored to your needs. Our adolescent IOP provides assistance for individuals 13 to 17 years old who deal with mental illness. Therapy groups meet in the evening three hours daily, four days per week. Sessions take place after school so you are able to continue with your normal school schedule.
