Adult Program - Treatment Options

The Behavioral Health Adult Program relies on an interdisciplinary team, including psychotherapists, psychiatrists, nurses and other healthcare professionals to create an individual treatment plan for each patient. With each treatment plan, we work to teach coping skills that will help you confront symptoms when they do arise.

We offer a variety of programs to fit every life style, including outpatient, intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization programs. Through oral medications, counseling and other forms of treatment, we can help you achieve the fulfilling life you deserve.

Outpatient Counseling

This treatment program consists of one-on-one counseling sessions lasting approximately one hour per week. More frequent sessions are be available as needed. The outpatient program is directed towards patients who may be struggling with depression, anxiety or other mental health issues, but are still able to moderately function in their everyday life.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

This program is designed for patients who are generally capable of working, but are still in need of intensive skills building and/or therapy that cannot be addressed adequately in weekly outpatient therapy. Sessions are three hours per day, Monday through Friday, and all treatment is conducted through group therapy and education. This program is aimed at patients needing more support and structure than the outpatient program.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

This program provides comprehensive psychological care to individuals who are experiencing acute symptoms of a mental health disorder. Patients participating in the Partial Hospitalization Program meet each weekday for six hours of therapy and return home during the evenings and on weekends. Treatment is primarily conducted though group therapy and education, facilitated by a master’s level psychotherapist. Individual therapy is provided as needed. This program provides more support and structure than the Intensive Outpatient Program.
