The Intensive Outpatient Program, or IOP, is designed to provide a concentrated, time-limited, comprehensive therapeutic environment for the treatment of mental health and substance abuse issues. Our IOP group therapy is designed for those seeking tools and principles of recovery either as a step down from an inpatient or partial hospitalization setting, or simply someone needing treatment and support.
Since we are hospital based, patients have access to a multidisciplinary team of experts that includes psychiatrists, psychologists, registered nurses, master’s-level therapists and chemical dependency counselors. Each group meets three hours a day, three days a week, usually for an eight week period. However, the length of stay depends on a patient’s unique treatment plan.
