Mental health and substance use disorders are complex, and it can be difficult to piece together a timeline to figure out how it all started. We find that there is often trauma or an undiagnosed mental health condition beneath the surface, that, until properly addressed, you cannot truly live a fulfilled life.
Intensive Outpatient Program exposes you to a variety of groups, including evidence based approaches (CBT and DBT) that help to identify unhealthy behavior and thought patterns, experiential groups like music and art therapy to help with nonverbal communication, and educational and thought-provoking groups that will help you manage anger and develop a better relationship with yourself and your loved ones.
The program runs five days a week for three hours a day, with breaks throughout, and you can choose to attend treatment in the morning, afternoon or evening. The goal of the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is for you to practice the skills you’re learning, and offers the flexibility to attend treatment throughout the day so you can begin to reintegrate into your daily routine. In IOP, you will attend group therapy, and get a weekly individual session with your therapist and case manager. The days you attend each week decrease as you start to reintegrate back into your community and daily life, while still having the support to fall back on.
