Intensive Outpatient Services

Mental health assessments are available in our Emergency Department 24/7

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) serves as a preventive measure to costly in-patient admission or as a transition step from in-patient care to a less restrictive setting. Our groups bring together clients struggling with the challenges of addiction and mood disorder, in a safe and supportive setting, to discuss experiences, learn problem-solving skills, challenge dysfunctional behavior, develop strategies which encourage positive growth and enhance general well-being.

The Adult Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program can help patients to:

Identify

  • How certain people, places or events trigger unpleasant feelings, cravings or the desire to engage in poor choices.
  • Why certain decisions are made without thinking first.
  • What factors lead to poor decision making and the values driving unhealthy behavior.

Explore

  • Approaches to simplify life.
  • Motivation to improve life planning.
  • Techniques to improve mood.

Create

  • Strategies to replace unhealthy choices with sustainable life skills.
  • Planning to navigate challenges and obstacles in life.
  • Connections with others in a comfortable setting.
