We offer a highly specialized Intensive Outpatient Program (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 4:00 p.m, with programming options available on weekends if desired. 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 the Intensive Outpatient Program work individually with a cognitive-behavior therapist three time per week for individual therapy and behavior planning. Family therapy sessions will be provided once per week as needed. Group therapy sessions are led by licensed clinicians specialized in treatment OCD and anxiety disorders.

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

Individuals who may benefit from our 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 (see Resources).

We also offer a comprehensive Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for adolescents who need intensive treatment as well. Click here to learn more about our Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program.
