Intensive Outpatient Program for Mental Health in Los Angeles, California
What is a Mental Health IOP?
An Intensive Outpatient Program is just what it sounds like. It is an intensive form of mental health outpatient treatment. Clients participating in an IOP have the freedom to return to daily living while still getting treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD or another mental health disorder. IOP clients only visit the treatment facility for scheduled therapy sessions. For most, the Mental Health IOP will be a less intensive step down from our PHP for mental health . Mental health IOP can opt to stay in supportive housing, if they wish. There are a few reasons why someone might go that route.
One, if you’re not local it’s much more practical and cost-effective than staying at a hotel. But, even if you are local, or from California anyway, you might just benefit from getting out of your usual home environment for a while. This all depends on your unique set of circumstances of course and it’s a personal choice. We encourage you to be honest in your assessment of your own situation and needs and ask us for advice when deciding where to stay during IOP.
Ideally, a candidate for our mental health IOP will have already completed some form of more intensive mental health treatment (like our Partial Hospitalization Program for mental health) but this depends on the individual. Some people may begin at the IOP level of care.
The Levels of Care at Transformations Care:
- Partial Hospitalization Program for mental health (PHP)
- Intensive Outpatient Program for mental health (IOP)
- Outpatient Therapy (either in person or remote, usually 1x week)
What’s the Difference Between PHP and IOP for Mental Health?
The main difference between our Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Program is the time spent in treatment each week. The Partial Hospitalization Program is still essentially full-time meaning they require 5 days a week at 6-8 hours per day. You can’t attend PHP and do much else, you’re still very much “in treatment”. An Intensive Outpatient Program is more like part-time and usually means no more than 15-20 hours per week spent in treatment. PHP is a higher level of care. Most people will start with PHP, then go on to IOP and finally outpatient mental health treatment for about 60-90 minutes, once a week.
Similarities Between Mental Health PHP and Mental Health IOP
Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programs for mental health have lots in common. Both are outpatient treatment, meaning clients do not sleep at our Los Angeles mental health treatment center overnight. Because PHPs and IOPs grant this freedom, both are also considered useful step-down programs after residential/inpatient mental health treatment (if that is required). Services offered through Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programs are very similar. Individual and group therapy sessions are the main focus of these programs. The goal of each program is to make sure mental health disorders are properly diagnosed and treated. Another goal is to help clients make breakthroughs not possible in conventional once a week outpatient therapy.
Which Program is Right for You?
Lucky for you, we offer all of the above. You don’t need to choose between PHP or IOP. The best thing to do is start at the top. Give us a call. We’ll do a thorough phone evaluation and see what type of help you really need and we will work out a treatment plan that makes sense for you.
How Long is the Whole Transformations Care Program?
The length of stay at our Los Angeles mental health treatment center varies. How long someone attends the program depends on how much help they need and how much time they can commit to their mental health care. Naturally. we recommend you follow the suggestions of our clinicians when it comes to this, but we can accommodate people with busy lives and hectic schedules too. The most important thing is that you don’t deny yourself or your loved one the mental health help they need and deserve. We suggest keeping an open mind and remember you can’t get “too much help” for a problem.
No one ever went to depression treatment in LA and wished they had gotten less help and less therapy. But, people have decided to get less help than they really needed, or even left against medical advice (AMA) only to regret it later. Your insurance company also has some say in your length of stay too, of course, but part of our job is to go to bat with them for you and we are very good at that. We will make the case for continued treatment for you each week if we think it’s what’s best for you and you’re willing. We will always recommend a length of stay that meets your needs and fits your means. Ultimately the decision is up to you how long to stay (as long as your insurance is on board).
