Intensive Outpatient Program

What is IOP?

Many people rely on individual therapy for psychological support, but sometimes people need more help than can be provided by unique treatment alone.

Men and women requiring more comprehensive mental health services may be referred to an Intensive Outpatient Treatment /program (IOP).

An IOP is a structured therapeutic environment that provides therapy and restorative services  3 to 5 times a week for 3 hours daily and typically runs for 6-12 weeks. 

An IOP allows people recovering from a mental illness to continue their recovery, offering group therapy, individual therapy, psychiatry, and other modalities for men and women with depression, anxiety, PTSD, or other mental health issues.

“Unlike an inpatient program, an intensive outpatient program (IOP) allows participants to receive treatment while still living at home and engaging in their personal lives. You can attend Clear Mind Treatment’s IOP treatment program without disrupting your work, routine, or relationships.”

All the services we offer work exceptionally well when they are combined. Please call us for more details.

IOP level of treatment is three or more hours per day for 3 to 5 days per week. This more intensive treatment will be individualized to address your needs and includes individual and group sessions to provide you and all clients with a more holistic and contained environment.

During admission to our program, all clients will receive an assessment and evaluation to develop an individualized treatment plan and establish the next steps moving forward. You will meet with a primary therapist, a psychiatrist, an MD, and specialists in treatment modalities that are determined to be the best fit.

Individualized treatment program

Our treatment is highly individualized and focuses on your specific needs! The individualized treatment program will consist of some or all of the following modalities, depending on your needs:

GROUP THERAPY

Group therapy can be an effective way to share experiences with others dealing with the same issues in the community. Group therapy sessions are kept small, typically less than eight people per group, and are 100% confidential.

We have several groups a day; morning and evening groups are available, also some mid-day groups. Please contact us for a group schedule. We encourage our clients to attend as many groups as possible; they play a crucial role in healing.

COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY (CBT)

CBT is one of the most well-researched methods of talk therapy. CBT involves becoming aware of negative, self-destructive, and maladaptive thought patterns and developing skills to help deter these. CBT is an active type of talk therapy whereby the individual works on attaining specific goals with their therapist.

DBT – DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY

DBT is another type of evidence-based talk therapy involving increased mindfulness, emotional regulation, resilience, and communication skills. Once learned, DBT skills can become helpful in many other facets of life.

TMS

TMS uses magnetic pulses to gently activate parts of the brain associated with depression and anxiety. TMS is typically administered five times per week for 4-6 weeks. TMS is both drug-free and FDA-approved.

KETAMINE / SPRAVATO / nasal or oral form

Ketamine (or name-brand Spravato) is an intranasal spray that can rapidly alleviate symptoms of depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and pain. Ketamine treatments could be done office or at home and administered and monitored closely by our medical team.

NEUROFEEDBACK

Neurofeedback allows individuals to train their brainwaves to combat maladaptive patterns and behaviors. A computer is set up to monitor these brainwaves, and we give individual feedback depending on what waves are produced. For instance, if an individual is anxious, their brainwaves will reflect this, and the computer may make a specific sound. The same may happen if someone is more relaxed. Over time, people can learn how to control their brainwaves and teach themselves how to regulate their brains.

MINDFULNESS

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a modified form of cognitive therapy incorporating mindfulness practices such as meditation and breathing exercises. Using these tools, therapists teach clients how to break away from negative thought patterns that can cause a downward spiral into a depressed state so they can fight off depression before it takes hold.

VR THERAPY

Incorporating VR in therapy can increase the ease, acceptability, and effectiveness of treatment for anxiety. VR exposure therapy (VRET) permits individualized, gradual, controlled, immersive exposure that is easy for therapists to implement and often more acceptable to patients than in vivo or imaginal exposure.

EMDR – TRAUMA THERAPY

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is one of the most effective treatments available for PTSD.

EMDR therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.

HYPNOTHERAPY

Hypnotherapy is a type of mind-body intervention in which hypnosis creates focused attention and increased suggestibility in treating a medical or psychological disorder or concern.

As long as you meet these requirements by your insurance provider, you will be covered for TMS therapy. You will always be responsible for your deductibles and copayments if any. We can run your verification of benefits to provide you with all those details.
Here are the requirements by the major insurance companies:

  • Anthem Blue Cross: 2 antidepressant medications in the past
  • Blue Shield (Magellan): 4 antidepressant medications in the past
  • Cigna: 2 antidepressant medications of 2 different classes (e.g., both can’t be SSRI’s)

In case you are not covered for TMS therapy only, we have a solution : thankfully Clear Mind Treatment offers TMS as part of it’s IOP Treatment program. Meaning we bundle TMS therapy with psychiatry and individual and group therapy. You will most likely be approved for bundled services rather than individual services.
