The next step down in the levels of care after intensive outpatient care is the outpatient level. In a mental health treatment program, individuals struggling with mental illness learn how to manage their condition in their everyday lives. TruHealing Gaithersburg’s outpatient program in MD can help you or someone you care about to develop healthy coping strategies as they continue their progress. If you have been through earlier levels of care like a residential inpatient program, a partial hospitalization program, or intensive outpatient program, our outpatient mental health treatment program might be right for you.
About Outpatient Mental Health Treatment
In an outpatient program, clients live at home or in supportive living community housing. But they spend several hours a week at our outpatient mental health treatment program continuing their treatment. At a world-class outpatient mental health program like the one at TruHealing Gaithersburg, clients participate in a broad range of activities, including mental health and nutrition education, recreational activities, and group therapy. This combination of supplemental treatment allows clients to build the skills they need to navigate their everyday lives.
Outpatient treatment is often the concluding step of a treatment journey. Many of the individuals in our outpatient program in MD, for instance, have received previous levels of care. But some people also start at this level. So are you a good candidate for outpatient mental health treatment?
An excellent place to start is by asking yourself the following questions:
- Have you completed a more intensive program for mental health treatment, like a partial hospitalization program or intensive outpatient care?
- Are you well enough that you are ready to begin returning to work or school, and to attend to your other responsibilities?
- Do you have a strong network of support outside of a treatment center?
- Do you feel that you are well on your way to having the life skills and coping strategies to manage future challenges when it comes to mental illness?
Outpatient mental health treatment is not the right first choice for everyone. But if you can answer “yes” to any of the above, the program at TruHealing Gaithersburg might be right for you.
Outpatient Mental Health Treatment at TruHealing Gaithersburg
Outpatient treatment is the least intensive of the mental health treatment programs we offer at TruHealing Gaithersburg. We aim to provide you with continued education and treatment while giving you more support than you might find outside of treatment. At TruHealing Gaithersburg, our staff will continue to work with you on developing a positive, achievable, progress-focused plan of action. And you will be putting that plan into practice in the real world every day.
As you reenter your life, you will have more freedom. But with that freedom comes responsibility, stress, and potential triggers. In outpatient treatment, our specific goal is to help you navigate those waters by giving you the tools that you need and helping you to build a strong support network outside of our walls.
Another primary focus in our outpatient mental health treatment program is wellness. At TruHealing Gaithersburg, we will help you develop an exercise regimen, give you lessons about nutrition, and help you to establish healthy habits and routines. Your physical well-being is the cornerstone of good mental health (and avoiding relapse, if you have a co-occurring substance use disorder)
