What Is Intensive Outpatient Treatment?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP) is a bridge between traditional outpatient mental health treatment and acute psychiatric hospitalization. You receive at least 9 hours a week of treatment in an outpatient setting, and you are able to remain at home.

How Does It Work?

Clients receive an evaluation by both a clinical social worker (LCSW) and by a psychiatric medical provider, such as a psychiatrist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, or a physician's assistant. A treatment plan is written with the LCSW, and goals for treatment are identified. A typical stay in IOP is 4-6 weeks. During that time, you will meet with the social worker and medical providers every week or so to evaluate your progress toward treatment goals, and ongoing need for IOP. As treatment goals are met, you and your social worker will make a plan for stepping down treatment to either fewer groups, or returning to traditional outpatient mental health, such as seeing a counselor every week or so. If you were already seeing a counselor before coming to MidValley, you will likely return to that therapist. If you have no established therapist and medication provider, we will assist you in finding providers who will help you maintain the progress made while you were in IOP.

What Happens In IOP?

After you have had your initial evaluations, you will be placed in one of two tracks, morning or afternoon. You will attend the groups you and the LCSW have identified on Monday, Wednesday, and either Thursday or Friday. Groups run from 9-12 or 1-4. In addition to attending 9 hours of group a week, you will also meet with your social worker and medication manager, as needed. We encourage clients to have at least one counseling session with family/support people in your life. Group therapy sessions are led by clinical social workers. Groups focus on specific topics, such as coping with anxiety symptoms, managing symptoms while at work, and changing negative thoughts which are contributing to depression. Group members interact with one another, hold each other accountable for treatment goals, while providing a supportive environment for one another.

Midvalley Healthcare's groups

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

This group puts emphasis on the importance of identifying our thoughts, moods, behaviors, and physical reactions to small situations and major events in your life. We focus on identifying strategies to change the thinking patterns that keep you locked into dysfunctional moods, behaviors, and relationship patterns.You will be encouraged to identify problems you are having in your daily experiences and work within the group to generate more adaptive responses. This will be done through goal setting, modeling, role playing, behavioral experiments and cognitive restructuring. Each member will work on practicing new adaptive response and report back on their experience.

More about this group

Interpersonal Therapy

In this group the primary focus is on how symptoms of depression affect interpersonal relationships, namely work, family, or social relationships, and how the member is functioning in a specified relationship. Because depression can be a debilitating illness which zaps energy and motivation, maintaining the level of functioning prior to the depressive symptoms is problematic. In this group we focus on "here and now", rather than issues from the past, paying particular attention to emotions and what those feelings tell us. We also make use of role-playing to identify problem areas in relationships and practice how to correct them.
