Intensive Outpatient Programs

Adult and Adolescent

Adult Intensive Outpatient Program

The program is designed specifically for adults (18+) who are experiencing emotional or behavioral problems that are significantly impacting their ability to be successful in the home, school, and/or work. An intensive outpatient program provides a more frequent and concentrated level of care than typical outpatient therapy can provide. Adults suffering from depression, anxiety or grief often lose the ability to function normally in their daily lives. Sometimes these issues completely disrupt every day behavior. In those cases, the more frequent, focused care of our intensive outpatient program can help.

What to expect?

Through group therapy, psychoeducation, and therapeutic activities, the IOP team works with the adult to decrease the symptoms or behaviors that have been causing difficulty. Using evidence-based treatment such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) informed interventions, patients can learn the necessary skills and insight to manage the emotional and behavioral issues and achieve a healthy level of functioning.

Schedule

We are offering one adult group at this time.

Details

Participants will check-in and check-out using the Brief Mood Survey created by Dr. David Burns. The Brief Mood Survey is a set of scales that indicate the severity of symptoms such as depression, anxiety, anger, suicidal urges, positive feelings, and relationship satisfaction or conflict. Teens will have an opportunity to interact with each other and staff and or play games prior to the start of the first group.

Yoga refers to the spiritual discipline that includes meditation, exercises, physical postures, breathing techniques. It is done to improve physical health, mental health, relaxation, and overall well-being of the individual. Yoga is a Sanskrit word, which means ‘connection’ or ‘union’; yoga focuses on the mind-body connection and building self-awareness.

Process groups are a form of group therapy. The power of process groups lies in the unique opportunity to receive multiple perspectives, support, encouragement and feedback from other individuals in safe and confidential environment.

The Wellness Recovery Action Plan, developed by Mary Ellen Copeland, PhD, is a self-designed prevention and wellness tool that you can use to get well, and stay well. WRAP is for anyone, any time, and for any of life’s challenges.

CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems.

DBT is a skills-based approach and includes four sets of skills including Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness. The fourth skill is mindfulness and will be taught in a separate group during the IOP program.

Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Practicing mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.

Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program

This program is designed specifically for adolescents (age 13-17) who are experiencing emotional or behavioral problems that are significantly impacting their ability to be successful in the home, school or community. An intensive outpatient program provides a more frequent and concentrated level of care than typical outpatient therapy can provide.

What to expect?

The typical IOP adolescent is currently attending school, maintaining a level of safety that does not require constant supervision and is willing to participate in a group therapy program. Adolescents need to be receiving or scheduled to receive outpatient individual therapy (referrals can be provided). In addition, parents/guardians must be willing to attend and participate in weekly multi-family therapy sessions.

Being involved with a teen’s treatment can often feel like an extremely isolating experience for parents. The multi-family group provides a nice counterpart to help provide families with perspective and encouragement within their experience as well as an understanding, sympathetic community with which to interact, learn from and process their experiences.
