Adult Intensive Outpatient Program

Mental health professional leads support groupThe adult intensive outpatient program (IOP) at Suncoast Behavioral Health Center is an outpatient program that offers a structured environment and allows patients to return home to maintain personal relationships. The program is designed for individuals who require coordinated, interdisciplinary treatment but do not require 24-hour care.

Patients most appropriate for IOP mental health programs may have impairment in psychosocial functioning or a deteriorating psychiatric diagnosis. Family involvement is a key component of the recovery process. It is important that family members become active participants in the therapeutic process as the patient will return home daily.

Adult IOP takes place Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm Lunch is provided daily.

Why Choose an IOP?

Seeking outpatient psychiatric treatment is never an easy decision, but it should be – it works.

An intensive outpatient program serves as a great step-down from an inpatient program or an outpatient program (PHP) that allows much more freedom for the patient while also allowing them to attend group therapy sessions, individual therapy and more. This less restrictive form of treatment only takes a few days a week for a few hours, leaving patients free to return home to their families or other community and personal responsibilities.

An IOP at a treatment center also is a solid starting point for those curious about treatment or interested in exploring treatment options. A part-time day program allows patients to maintain community and person relationships while still experiencing the structure and support system provided by mental health professionals in an outpatient setting and at a lower level of care.

From here, patients can work towards returning to everyday life with the skills and tools needed to live a healthier, happier life, or explore higher levels of care such as PHP or residential treatment if an IOP is not exactly what the patient needs.

What Does the CDC Say About Mental Health in Adults?

Mental health issues in adults are a common occurrence in the United States, as more than 50% of Americans will be diagnosed at some point in their life. Despite such a negative stigma surrounding this issue, yearly, 1 in 5 American adults face a mental health disorder, making this one of the biggest health problems Americans face each year. 

Not only do many Americans face mental health challenges, but 1 in 25 are diagnosed with severe mental illnesses, making treatment  and diagnosis all the more important. 

Adult Intensive Outpatient Care Can Help

Although common, mental health disorders are not something that anyone should just have to live with. Treatment at a mental health facility makes a difference, and, although the type of treatment varies, the skills learned in treatment provides a building block towards recovery. 

There is help through inpatient treatment at a behavioral health hospital or mental health services, crisis interventions and other treatment programs, all designed to get you the help you need, no matter the issue you face.
