Intensive Outpatient Psychiatric Program (IOP)

Our mission is to:

  • Provide treatment for individuals who do not require inpatient or partial hospitalization intensity.
  • Treat patients in a manner that will enhance self-confidence and independence. Advocate acceptance of these persons in their families through education of families and the general public.
  • Treat the patient in the least restrictive environment.


We respect the dignity and privacy of each person in our programs. No private information about our patients is shared outside our program staff. Additionally, we expect our patients not to discuss outside the program any information learned about others in the program. This enables every patient to feel safe to talk about their personal life problems in a safe therapeutic environment.
