Types of Outpatient Services

We provide two different types of outpatient services: Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient. Meals are provided at all of our daytime IOP and PHP Outpatient programs.Transportation services are available. Please call to inquire or arrange.

Partial Hospitalization Program

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) involves a series of intensive group therapy sessions. Our PHPs provide a structured, therapeutically intensive setting for individuals who do not require 24-hour supervision, yet still require a high degree of therapeutic support. Group therapy is usually five days per week. Most of our programs run from 9:00 AM until 3:30 PM.

Our team provides evidence-based treatment models to work with children, adults, and their families to help them through the healing process. A PHP works well as either an alternative to hospitalization, or as a way to transition from inpatient care.

A few of the programs we offer are:

  • Day Mental Health PHP for Adults: 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

 

  • Day Dual PHP for Adults: 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

For adult men and women ages 18+ who have mental health concerns or co-occurring substance related issues. This group covers topics such as cognitive distortions, challenging negative thought patterns, coping skills, and relapse prevention planning. Our PHP offers medication management.

  • Women's Trauma PHP: 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

The Women’s Wellness Group provides comprehensive services for women ages 18+ who have experienced trauma, domestic violence, or sexual abuse and are also experiencing concerns related to mood anxiety, or co-occurring substance use. The Women’s Wellness Group empowers women with collaborative, multidisciplinary treatment efforts through evidence-based and trauma-informed mental health care.
