In addition to our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Psychiatric Solutions also provides an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for patients who need to transition to aftercare upon discharge from a hospital. IOP is a flexible program that meets a variety of needs and provides intensive help for individuals who need more than the outpatient services they have already received. IOP gives patients the opportunity to use the tools and solutions they have learned, while still receiving intensive treatment and support.
Our program is unique in the following ways:
4 days a week, 3 hours a day (9 a.m. to 11:50 a.m., Monday through Thursday)
More intensive than traditional outpatient care
Short-term stabilization and resolution of immediate problem areas
Step-up in support for individuals who need help with their goals
Step-down for individuals transitioning from a higher level of care
IOP provides our patients with many benefits, such as equipping them with helpful ideas about how to manage symptoms in both group and individual settings. Patients can also avoid expensive hospital charges, and local patients have access to facility-sponsored transportation for their convenience.
Additional benefits of IOP include:
Live at home in familiar and comfortable surroundings
Attend work or school while getting focused help in an outpatient setting
Receive an intensive level of personalized care from a highly qualified behavioural health team
Receive consistent interaction to effectively manage medication adjustments
Receive attention more quickly than other traditional outpatient programs
