The Intensive Outpatient Program treatment is primarily for Active Duty Service Members (SMs) who have not made adequate progress in routine outpatient behavioral health treatment and are in need of more robust, intensive treatment without the restrictions of a psychiatric inpatient setting. IOP also provides care for SMs that have been recently discharged from inpatient treatment and need more intensive therapy than what can be provided in a weekly outpatient setting.
This track meets three days per week for five weeks, four hours per day from 0830-1230 every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The group is limited to approximately 12 members . New members start the group each Wednesday of the week. The focus of the group is to provide intense psychoeducation pertaining to crisis stabilization, resiliency skills, medication and symptoms management, and health issues management (such as sleep hygiene, pain management, nutrition awareness and substance abuse). This group will capture SMs being discharged from acute in-patient hospitalization and/or others in the need of immediate higher level of care.
