The New Options Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a behavioral health treatment program for adults whose symptoms impair their day-to-day life.

The program may be used as a “step-up” for individuals who need more intensive services, but do not need inpatient hospitalization. The program may also be used as a “step-down” for individuals who have recently been hospitalized in an inpatient setting and need help transitioning back into less intense services.

Program Overview

Treatment is offered in a structured group-based setting with individually tailored treatment plans intended to meet the unique needs of each person. Group sessions are held three days per week from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. Individual, couple and marital therapy sessions may also be included as part of an individual’s course of treatment on an as needed basis or as per insurance requirements.

Group topics are tailored to meet the needs of the individuals in group and may include information on, but not limited to: Anger, assertiveness, boundaries, changing negative thought patterns, coping skills, emotion regulation, grief and loss, relaxation techniques, self-esteem and sleep hygiene.

Treatment also includes weekly visits with a medical provider for psychiatric medication evaluation and management.
