Adult Trauma-Focused Intensive Outpatient Program 

Once a week appointments are not always sufficient to meet the mental health needs of individuals and inpatient levels of care exceed what the individual needs to mitigate symptoms. When this is case, an IOP can provide a time-limited, intense level of treatment aimed at adults with mental health disorders created by or exacerbated by traumatic experiences. Learn more.
