Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Adult Intensive Outpatient Program

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a 6-8 week program. Participants attend 3 sessions a week and each session is 3 ½ hours. We offer both morning and evening programs, so as to provide minimal disruption to patient’s daily lives.

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a comprehensive treatment for adults who are struggling with overwhelming life events, emotional challenges and/or mood disorders.

Participants often choose IOP when their overall functioning and quality of life is being significantly impacted by these issues and they need more support than individual therapy, alone, can provide. IOP uses Dialectical Behavior Therapy, a cognitive behavioral approach, proven effective in helping individuals improve their overall life skills.

Groups are kept small (8-10 participants) and a comfortable, supportive environment that encourages growth and change is fostered.

Through Dialectical Therapy group members are assisted to make effective choices and challenge the distorted thinking that perpetuates suffering. They learn the basic skills of our four modules: Core Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotional Regulation and Distress Tolerance.
