The Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to provide mental health treatment outside of a hospital setting for older adults with mental illness, emotional distress, or behavioral problems. Patients attending the program suffer from depression, loss of independence, grief, anxiety, and a variety of other emotional stressors. Patients attend the program 1- 5 days per week depending on severity of illness. Patients participate in group therapy sessions, individual therapy, and/or family therapy.
The treatment team consists of a Board Certified Psychiatrist, Licensed Professional Counselor, and a Licensed Master Social Worker. An Activity Coordinator is also on site to provide recreational activities after treatment is completed. Transportation to and from the program is provided and a hot nutritious meal is served at lunch. Our goal in our intensive outpatient programs is to teach patients life skills that help them achieve and maintain functional independence within the community.
