Intensive Outpatient Programs
The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is dedicated to helping individuals develop healthier coping skills and build a recovery support network. Participants can continue to work, attend school, and tend to the duties of daily life. This nine-hour-a-week (three hours a day, three days a week) program allows patients the opportunity to practice their new skills while still benefiting from the support and accountability of treatment. This program allows participants to receive treatment on a part-time, yet intensive schedule. We believe that recovery and life are one and the same and it is for that reason that daily life is an integral therapeutic component of treatment.
Our Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program provides treatment for people suffering from moderate to severe levels of depression and anxiety that are interfering with their daily functioning, such as work performance, relationships, health, etc.
We use several treatment modalities, to assist individuals in their mental health recovery and through coping with depression and anxiety, developing action plans, and building coping skills.
Core groups are organized around these treatment models, and also include:
Identification of feelings
Using medication effectively
Mental Illness and Substance Use Disorder
Our Co-Occurring Disorders Intensive Outpatient Program provides treatment for people diagnosed with both a mental illness and substance use disorder. We incorporate a number of elements including groups specifically designed for people with dual disorders, education regarding medications and other steps to recovery from both illnesses, help in understanding the effects of substance use on their lives, and knowledge regarding substances of abuse and how they affect mental illness and medication.
Additional core components of this track are:
Cognitive behavioral therapy
Using medication effectively
We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with other treating providers in the community such as therapists or physicians. We may also supplement IOP with other treatment modalities available in the Orlando area, such as individual, couples, or family therapy, support groups, church, Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Al-Anon, Narcotics Anonymous (NA), etc.
IOP treatment is provided by Licensed, Master’s level therapists. Patients see the program psychiatrist at least once a month for medication management.
