Intensive Outpatient Therapy
Intensive outpatient therapy provides an intermediate level of structured psychiatric treatment for those who don't require 24-hour inpatient care. St. Joseph Behavioral Health's program utilizes evidence-based approaches to effectively treat mental health disorders and addiction.
IOP can help patients make noticeable progress in a relatively short period of time through medical oversight by a psychiatrist and therapy provided by licensed therapists.
Intensive outpatient therapy sessions are three days a week, three hours each session, for a total of nine hours a week. For a free confidential assessment or additional information, call (260) 425-3606 or 1-800-694-9034.
