IOP General Questions

  • What do people talk about in IOP?
    Discussions are unique to each individual and each group. What is discussed is largely up to the individual. When it is a group session, the clinician leading the group may direct discussions to a particular topic.
  • Why should I attend IOP?
    There are a variety of reasons you may choose to attend an IOP. Some individuals find they need more support from a mental health professional than typical weekly or bi-weekly sessions can provide. Others may be referred by their doctor or clinician. An IOP can also be helpful in practicing learned coping skills in your typical environment as participants return home each evening.
  • What is IOP?
    An IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) provides a higher level of care for those in need of targeted mental health services. For those who do not need residential care, an IOP can provide a step up from typical mental health care through more frequent visits with your individual therapist in addition to groups and medication management if appropriate. An IOP can assist in establishing psychosocial support while maintaining a more normal daily routine.
  • How long will IOP last?
    Typical time in an IOP is 30-60 days with assessments throughout the process.
