Outpatient Services

An integral part of our continuum of care includes comprehensive outpatient services for those who do not require inpatient hospitalization.

Depending upon client needs and therapeutic goals, we offer various program options including:

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

A structured daytime program that includes physician oversight, therapeutic and educational group treatment, and activities that focus on the individual’s goals. The program runs daily during the week.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Less concentrated than a full day of PHP. Group therapy and education help clients build skills to apply in their daily lives at home, school, and work. Clients attend IOP three hours a day, three days a week.


Virtual services help clients who can participate in an IOP program from a safe place of their choosing. Our virtual programs provide the same therapeutic support available as an in-person treatment setting. This makes access to care easier while also respecting social distancing practices.
