Managing your mental health is rarely easy in the beginning. When it become apparent that you would benefit from some professional help, the next step is choosing the level of care that best suits your needs. The level of care you need will depend upon, among other factors, the severity of your mental illness. At TruHealing Gaithersburg, many of our clients begin their journey in our PHP mental health treatment program.
The next level down from the 5 days a week of full-day treatment in PHP is our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). In intensive outpatient treatment, our clients learn healthy coping skills and real-world strategies for continuing their progress. If you require guided support but are also ready to begin putting these strategies into practice in your everyday life, our intensive outpatient program in MD might be right for you.
What Is a Mental Health Treatment IOP?
Many individuals living with a mental health disorder start their journey in a residential treatment facility. These programs can be useful for clients with very severe mental health issues. But not everyone can commit the time needed for this kind of inpatient care. And the truth is that not everyone needs it. In an intensive outpatient mental health treatment program, patients live either at home or in “supportive living” community housing while they receive treatment.
An IOP might be the right choice for you if:
- You have already received treatment in a residential inpatient treatment program and/or have been in a partial hospitalization program (PHP).
- The responsibilities of work, school, or childcare mean that you cannot commit the time needed to programs like the above
- You are ready to return to work or school but need to continue treatment.
- You already have a strong support network, but you wish to continue developing it as you recover.
As the National Institute on Mental Health has indicated, a quality intensive outpatient program will provide you with expert care in a comfortable environment, while personalizing the program to meet your needs. And at TruHealing Gaithersburg, every client receives an initial assessment to determine their needs in treatment and the best plan for them. Our team then customizes a plan to cater to your specific circumstances.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment at TruHealing Gaithersburg
We have designed our intensive outpatient program in MD to provide you with the tools you need to manage your mental health for the long-term. And whether our IOP is the first step in your wellness journey or a continuation of your care, the TruHealing Gaithersburg team specializes in designing an individualized plan based on your needs.
At TruHealing Gaithersburg, intensive outpatient mental health treatment focuses on helping you use the tools and skills you learn in treatment to deal with real-life situations and stresses. Group therapy is a crucial resource during this portion of your recovery. Groups are made up of your peers in recovery, many of whom have had similar experiences of addiction. Learning from—and eventually providing support to—others in intensive outpatient does more than just help you manage your mental health. It is also a life-changing experience, especially as you discover that you have the strength to help others in need.
Along with regular group meetings, in the IOP you will also continue to see your therapist on an individual basis. These one-on-one sessions provide you with the structure, reflection, and awareness that will help ensure that you are achieving your long-term goals.
Because living with mental illness can often be isolating, in intensive outpatient treatment, you will also begin to mend the relationships that your mental illness may have helped strain or damage. This involves educating your family about your condition and coming up with strategies to promote long-term mental health. Your loved ones will also have access to family support groups where they can interact with members of other families in similar situations. In this way, your family will become a resource that will aid in your long-term mental health.
