What is an intensive oupatient program (IOP)?
IOP is an escalated level of treatment for when one-on-one visits with a counselor or psychiatrist don’t quite cut it for you. Usually, a provider will determine if this level of care is required and evaluate you for a referral. This is what’s called “acute treatment”, usually lasting a period of several weeks…a couple months at the most. IOP is a type of treatment you’re admitted into. There’s an admit date and discharge date.
How does the IOP Process Work?
Once you’ve determined that this type of treatment would be right for you, we start by having you establish goals that you want to meet. We take those “stated goals” to the treatment team. This team is comprised of a therapist, psychiatrist, care coordinator, and any other relevant staff. The team takes your goals and develops a specific treatment plan with organized steps and interventions. Your progress is monitored by the team on a bi-weekly basis.
Most of your treatment will take place in a group setting. This includes 3 sessions per week; each 3 hours in length. You’ll also meet one-one-one with a psychiatrist for bi-weekly or monthly evaluation and possibly the therapist, as needed. These sessions will continue until discharge.
What areas are addressed in an IOP?
If you are struggling with:
- Past Trauma
- PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)
- Traumatic grief and loss
- Mood Disorder
- Personality Disorder
- Substance Use Disorder
Then you may want to consider this treatment option.
