Intensive Outpatient Care for Adults
Centennial Peaks Hospital offers two intensive outpatient programs (IOP) for adults that need mental health and substance abuse treatment but do not require 24-hour care. Many patients seeking outpatient care may not meet criteria for inpatient hospitalization, but have mental health issues that make it difficult to work, relax, and participate in healthy relationships with family and friends. Our outpatient programs allow the patients to work and live at home while learning life skills that can empower them to take control of their lives. We determine the needs of each patient through a complimentary, confidential assessment, but typical treatment plans consist of up to 20 sessions. Most patients will attend group therapy nine hours each week. Both day and evening tracks are available for patients that need the flexibility.
Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program (MH-IOP)
The MH-IOP is appropriate for those who are experiencing mood swings, depression, panic, mania, anger, and/or anxiety. The program is focused on the development of interpersonal skills, coping skills, relaxation skills, management of symptoms, and mood stabilization. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and other skills-based treatment methods make up a goal-directed treatment plan and homework to increase each patient’s functioning at school, with friends and family, and alone. Through lectures, discussion, and exercises, a wide variety of skills are practiced, with the goal of increasing the patient’s mental health function and their ability to enjoy life.
Adult MH-IOP meets three times per week, for three hours sessions, over six weeks, for a total of 18 sessions, which also includes a family night once a month.
Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient Program (CD-IOP)
The CD-IOP takes a multi-faceted approach with a strong focus on the cognitive behavioral process. We provide hope and healing for those who suffer from alcohol or drug addiction or co-occurring disorders. We believe that building a strong recovery support system, making changes in one’s lifestyle, and ensuring long-term recovery requires that patients become aware of their addictive thinking and behaviors. We utilize the “Living in Balance” curriculum, an evidence-based program developed by the nationally recognized Hazelden Foundation. Our philosophy is recovery-based (non-AA specific) with an emphasis placed on community support groups concurrent with treatment. We also incorporate nutrition, self-care, and leisure activities to encourage lifestyle and behavior changes.
The CD-IOP program meets three times per week, for three hours each, over the course of 6.5 weeks for a total 20 sessions. During these 20 sessions, we assist individuals in developing recovery skills while remaining in the community and dealing with their daily life stressors.
DBT Informed Skills Intensive Outpatient Program (DBT IOP)
The DBT-IOP has been specifically designed to assist those with both mood disorders and Borderline Personality Disorders. Depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder or borderline personality traits. The program is very skill based with little process. The program focuses on emotion regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness. The program teaches mindfulness to help them learn to live in the moment and pay attention to what is going on inside (thoughts, feelings, sensations and impulses).
