Our IOP program is designed for adults seeking clinically proven and effective skills and resources to more successfully manage their depression, anxiety, trauma, or other serious mental health conditions.
Sometimes a more intensive level of counseling care is needed than can be provided in a traditional outpatient counseling setting, which typically involves meeting one-on-one with a counselor, for about one hour per week. When more care is needed, Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP program) can provide a higher level of services.
Intensive Outpatient Programs consist of group sessions typically held three to four days a week for about three hours per day, with an average group size of about 8-12 members. They may also involve individual and family therapy sessions, which may be held outside of the normally scheduled group times.
The comprehensive nature of a higher model of care in an IOP, along with a higher frequency of sessions, allows for improved client outcomes but also creates the flexibility for clients to remain in the community and avoid residential programming. This will allow clients to continue working and living in their own homes. The program also includes supportive services for families and aftercare services following completion of the program.
Many insurance plans cover intensive outpatient services. Please contact us at 800.438.1772 so we can walk you through the process and review your insurance and payment options.
GROWTH stands for Guiding Relationships and Ourselves with Wisdom and Therapeutic Healing. Clients in our Intensive Outpatient Programs will learn emotion- and behavior-regulation strategies, skills to build and strengthen relationships, and techniques for the management of psychologically distressing situations. Our program integrates evidence-based counseling techniques with a Christian perspective to support clients both emotionally and spiritually.
The program can serve as a step-down option for individuals moving from an inpatient or partial hospitalization setting or to provide clients a higher level of care than what is available through traditional outpatient counseling.
Each staff member at Christian Family Solutions has an extensive background in treating those with depression and anxiety issues and brings unique experience to the group setting.
