Intensive Therapy For Mental Health: What An IOP Is And Who/How It Can Help
When an individual is seeking help with navigating emotions, processing life transitions and/or exploring the self in relation to others, we may recommend individual, group or couples therapy. If an individual is so impacted by their struggles that they are unable to function in their day-to-day life, we would recommend more intensive mental health treatment, such as The Lovett Center’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
What is an IOP?
The Lovett Center’s proprietary IOP is an eight-week program designed for those who are experiencing considerable distress, anxiety, depression, interpersonal struggles and/or substance use issues. It offers a structured curriculum that can be an effective alternative to hospitalization. Beyond the eight weeks, we offer continued options for ongoing care to facilitate long-term healing. Our IOP can also serve as an aftercare program following residential treatment. In order to best meet the needs of our clients, treatment is divided into groups based on stage of life.
IOP for Young Adults
Individuals ages 18-25 who are struggling with mental health issues that are preventing them from individuating from their parents, succeeding in school and/or building appropriate self-esteem may benefit from participating in our IOP. In this program, individual therapy is combined with group therapy, mediation, trauma informed yoga and financial skills training. It may be paired with family therapy and sessions with a recovery support therapist, if applicable.
IOP for Adult Professionals
Our IOP for adult professionals is tailored to high-achieving individuals seeking to manage their health, well-being and work-life balance. Oftentimes, high pressure professions compound workplace challenges and interfere with personal relationships. In these cases, we work with individuals via solo and group therapy, skills training and more to help them achieve long-term wellness.
Our Approach to IOP
No matter the age group, our IOP uses a Psychodynamic approach, which is widely considered a holistic, global approach that focuses on the client’s emotions, perspectives and life experiences.
Our compassionate, master’s-level clinicians provide intensive care while allowing clients to continue with their normal work and academic activities, guiding them towards long-term healing by setting them up with skills for daily life and offering aftercare support through The Lovett Center or other healing locations within the Ethos Behavioral Health Group family.
Virtual therapy options are currently available to assist clients of all ages.
Our service offerings include in-network, out-of-network and self pay options; please contact us for the most up-to-date information. All communication is confidential.
