Online/Virtual Intensive Outpatient Program

At the McLean OCD Institute //Houston, we offer a highly specialized online Intensive Outpatient Program (O-IOP) for adults with moderate to severe anxiety disorders, OCD and related disorders. This program meets Monday through Friday from 8:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and is offered 100% virtually through the zoom platform. Clients have the opportunity to interact with other individuals who experience similar challenges; this built-in community is therapeutic and creates a motivating atmosphere for people in all stages of treatment.

Clients in our Online Intensive Outpatient Program work individually with a cognitive-behavior therapist for individual therapy and individualized behavior planning. Family therapy sessions are provided once per week and weekly sessions from our team psychiatrist are available as requested. Groups include psycho-educational groups led by our clinicians and ERP blocks led by our residential counselors. Click HERE to see an example of our O-IOP programming. 

Treatment in the Online Intensive Outpatient Program is provided by our multi-disciplinary team comprised of behavioral therapists, our psychiatrist, our family therapist and our residential counselors. Residential counselors aid in treatment by following behavior plans (developed together with your individual behavioral therapist) to enhance outcomes for clients with anxiety, OCD and related disorders. Our staff is trained to balance compassionate care while implementing response prevention.

Individuals who may benefit from our Online Intensive Outpatient Program include:
  • Individuals with moderate to severe anxiety disorders, OCD or related disorders;
  • Individuals who have not made sufficient progress in traditional outpatient therapy;
  • Individuals who want to make more significant progress in a shorter period of time; and/or
  • Individuals who are looking for a step-down from a residential or an inpatient program

Our intensive programs are not appropriate for individuals who have active addictions, active eating disorders, and/or are actively suicidal. For these individuals, we recommend an inpatient setting. Admission into our online intensive outpatient programming must be approved, phone intakes are required. Please call 713-526-5055 to schedule your intake or click HERE.
