Mental Health Outpatient Programs

The Mental Health Outpatient Programs are where we meet the very special needs of our patients eighteen years and older and their families everyday. Programs include:

  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
  • Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
  • Chemical Dependency (Co-Occuring) Intensive Outpatient Program (CDIOP)

These programs are designed as alternatives in inpatient hospitalization. They provide structured daytime treatment for individuals who need more rigorous care for psychiatric symptoms rather than traditional outpatient care, yet who are stable enough to return home each evening.

  • The Partial Hospitalization Progams typically occur 4-5 days per week, 6 hours per day
  • The Intensive Outpatient Program occurs 3 days per week.

The services are time limited and conclude when the patient’s immediate problems are stabilized.

Our program offers psychiatric assessments and treatment, specialized nursing, and medical evaluation. The services are time limited and conclude when the patient’s immediate problems are stabilized. We attempt to prepare our patients for life after they are discharged by providing after care services and medication management as well as follow-up planning.
