Outpatient Programs

Outpatient Programs Overview

Our outpatient services are designed to offer help to those seeking solutions to their psychiatric or emotional issues as well as to those living with substance abuse. Each program provides an array of therapeutic activities for individuals who need more intervention and structure than weekly outpatient sessions can provide but are not in need of hospitalization.

Partial Hospitalization

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a full-day treatment program in which our clinicians provide a variety of group therapies intended to improve coping skills, identify dysfunctional behaviors and enhance the patient’s overall quality of life.

In addition to focusing on the disorders of Depression, Bipolar, Anxiety, and Schizophrenia, our team of PHP therapists also offer interventions to help individuals cope with secondary disorders that can include:

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD) symptoms
  • Chronic Suicidal Ideations and Gestures
  • Intermittent Explosive Disorder
  • Eating Disorders
  • Coping with Chronic Pain

Individuals seeking PHP are in need of more intensive treatment than regular outpatient services but do not need hospitalization. The psychiatrist may suggest medication as a way to manage symptoms. We take a Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic approach that focuses on:

  • Self-esteem
  • Self-awareness
  • Relapse prevention for substance abuse (if applicable)
  • Managing Anger, Fear, and Sadness
  • Positive Affirmations
  • Identifying and Implementing Coping Skills
  • Restructuring Cognitive Distortions
  • Assertiveness Training

Intensive Outpatient

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a half-day program incorporating the same treatment components as PHP for individuals that need more assistance than weekly counseling sessions can provide but do not require the intensity or structure of a full-day program. For patients with chronic psychiatric conditions and/or substance abuse, the IOP format can be ideal.
