Outpatient Treatment (OP)
OP treatment is the final phase in an outpatient setting. OP can be regarded as a step down from IOP treatment and is often utilized to help clients fully transition into complete independence from the outpatient treatment setting. Similar to IOP in clinical and therapeutic services, OP treatment provides clients a significantly less intensive schedule. OP treatment is generally recommended to clients who have previously completed either PHP, IOP, or both levels of care and are looking to engage in continued therapy while building confidence in themselves and their ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle. OP programming consists of 1-2 hours of treatment per day, 2-4 days per week, depending on the needs of each individual. During OP programming clients meet with an individual therapist 1-2 times per week and participate in 1-2 group therapy sessions per week. Additionally, clients may chose to continue with follow-up visits with the psychiatrist on an as needed basis.
