Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) 

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed for adults 18+. This program provides diverse counseling services by qualified mental health professionals. Group and individual sessions are available and determined by need. Managed by our treatment team, our purpose is to support you, and your family, when adjusting to life's circumstances, illness or other changes, with a particular focus on anxiety and depressive disorders.

Who can benefit the most from this program?

Individuals who are affected by depression, anxiety or other forms of emotional distress are welcome to call to seek more information and ask questions. The additional support and treatment provided may help prevent hospitalization or while discharging from an inpatient service back to home during times of increased distress due to medical or lifestyle changes.

What can patients expect when participating in the Intensive Outpatient Program?

The IOP centers around group therapy conducted by a variety of mental health professionals. Individual therapy conducted by a social worker as needed will be provided and referrals for follow-up care at the end of the program will be established. This program is intended to provide support and teach effective coping strategies within a 6- to 8-week timeframe — three times a week, three hours a day.

Various life topics, with an intense focus on learning practical coping skills, are covered through our sessions, including grief and loss, depression, anxiety, self-defeating habits, communication, self-esteem and personal relationships.

How does someone get started?

All referrals begin with a referral from current outpatient/inpatient established healthcare provider completing the referral form and faxing to (319) 226-2105. The individual seeking services, their support system and/or their healthcare providers can request more information about the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) by calling (319) 226-2106.
