Each person who receives treatment for mental health concerns will have a unique healing journey. While some may need 24/7 support, others may benefit from a lower level of care.
At River Place Behavioral Health, we offer an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for adults age 18 and older who are suffering from mental health disorders and co-occurring concerns.
What We Treat
In our IOP, we offer comprehensive care for adults who are struggling with mental health disorders such as bipolar disorder, depression, and schizophrenia. We understand that mental health disorders often occur together, so individuals can also receive treatment for co-occurring concerns to ensure complete wellness.
Our IOP may be an appropriate option for adults who do not require inpatient care but can benefit from a structured treatment setting that offers more support than traditional outpatient services provide. Individuals may also enter our IOP after completing a higher level of care, ensuring a smooth transition out of treatment.
At River Place Behavioral Health Hospital, we provide each adult with a personalized treatment plan that addresses their unique needs. During the admissions process, we review their medical history, background, life experiences, and goals for treatment. Our team then determines if our IOP is appropriate for them and which services should be included in their treatment plan.
Therapy in our IOP takes place three hours a day, three days a week for about 12 weeks. During this time, adults can benefit from the following:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
- Medication management
- Group therapy
Group therapy is the core treatment method used in our IOP. Group therapy sessions involve a range of topics, including anger management, crisis survival, distress tolerance, self-care, setting boundaries, and finding support.
In addition to therapy, we also provide IOP participants with breakfast, lunch, snacks, breaks, and transportation to and from our facility if needed.
Continuing care is an essential part of the treatment process. At River Place Behavioral Health, we start planning each person’s aftercare as soon as they begin treatment with us. Our team continues to monitor and update their aftercare plan to ensure that it meets their unique needs and goals.
A person’s discharge plan can include admission to a different level of care, a referral to traditional outpatient services, online support, and other resources that promote long-term wellness.
