GHC Foundations Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offers evidence-based, multi-disciplinary and multi-modal care for adults with behavioral health diagnoses. This program would benefit patients who are either stepping down from higher levels of care or could use more intensive services than outpatient therapy and medication management.
We accept referrals from psychiatrists, primary care providers, mental health professionals. You cannot refer yourself.
What to Expect in the Program
All individuals will complete a comprehensive assessment with a team of licensed behavioral health specialists, including psychiatrists, therapists, behavioral health nurses and a transitional coordinator. Program participants will spend the majority of time with peers in a group therapy setting, learning and practicing skills while exploring symptoms and experiences in a safe environment.
Our curriculum uses evidence-based therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). Every person in the program will meet with an individual therapist and a psychiatrist at least once weekly. Although all individual care is different, we anticipate the average length of participation in our program to be two to four weeks.
