Intensive Outpatient Services

Intensive Outpatient Services offers treatment for clients with mental and/or emotional problems, and treatment for chemical dependency. Both the chemical dependency and psychiatric tracks focus on the stabilization and reduction of symptoms, improving daily functioning skills and relapse prevention. The program helps clients learn about their illness and develop effective coping techniques while allowing the individual to reside at home.

Services include:

Care Planning:  A “treatment team” consisting of nursing staff, counselors and social workers provides services under the direction of a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist will perform a physician’s evaluation.

Group Therapy: Provides a group setting to process thoughts, feelings and issues related to patients’ recovery.

Individual Therapy/Counseling: Offers the individual a private opportunity to speak with a team member about issues or problems that would not be suitable in a group setting.

Family Education & Therapy: The Intensive Family Program is designed to facilitate the healing process of the family system as a whole. It is an expectation of the program that family members attend weekly educational sessions. Adult family members or a support person may attend the 11 a.m. group on Wednesdays.

Case Management & Continuing Care Planning: Includes coordinating the client’s care with referral sources, payers, discharge planning and community resources that provide ongoing treatment and support after the Intensive Outpatient program is completed.

With the client’s permission, information is shared with the Intensive Outpatient treatment team, and provided to other health care professionals for continuity of care.
