The purpose of the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is to provide clients with positive coping skills, a working treatment plan (relapse prevention plan), the ability to recognize triggers and stressors, and provide rapid access to psychiatric services. Our treatment approach is client-centered, strengths-focused, and trauma-informed to provide high quality mental health and substance abuse services.
Our goal is to help clients achieve a healthier, more positive and balanced life. It will also help increase confidence needed to manage daily stressors and improve daily functioning. The treatment team, which includes the client, group therapist and psychiatrist as needed, actively communicate to ensure the client’s treatment needs are being met. Coordination with client’s individual therapist is also a part of the communication process as needed.
Currently, there are two group formats, a group for Adults (age 30+) and Young Adults (ages 18-29). There are currently two Adult sections, and one Young Adult section. Additionally, planning is underway for short-term, structured Adult and Adolescent programs.
