An intensive outpatient program is an 8-12 week treatment program that is designed to assist clients with skill development and symptom improvement at a faster pace than in traditional outpatient therapy. This is a great fit for those whose symptoms have not meaningfully improved with traditional therapy. It’s also a good match if symptoms are interfering with your quality of life and you need more than 1 hour of treatment per week. More information about this type of treatment is available here.

The name of this type of specialized program can be misleading – there is no hospital or overnight stay involved. Instead, you will spend 4 hours each weekday attending treatment with our team. This treatment is meant to help with rapid improvement in severe mental health symptoms so you can get back to the most important things in your life as quickly as possible.

Nearly everyone feels a little nervous at first about being a part of a therapy group. We find that most people who give it a try for two weeks both enjoy it and benefit from the experience in unique ways that can’t be replicated in individual treatment. The treatment provided during group therapy is evidence-based, you can often start in a group immediately, and it’s more economical than individual services.

We focus exclusively on treatment during program hours. We do offer PHP programs at two different time slots (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) to help balance school requirements with your healthcare needs.

Definitely. Outcomes are much better when everyone works together.

Immediately. We understand how important it is to ensure there are no gaps in care and we’ll work with you to achieve this.

Absolutely. We think it’s a great idea to plan for a safe, effective transition from hospital treatment to outpatient services and this is a great way to avoid gaps in care.

Treatment at Transitions is 100% voluntary. That being said, progress happens when you are present. Consistent attendance supports the best possible outcome for treatment.
