LAT’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for Mental Health
For 45 years, The Life Adjustment Team has been implementing state-of-the-art comprehensive outpatient psychiatric rehabilitation using the best evidence-based practices. We provide one-to-one support in the home, community, school, and workplace when appropriate and work with clients that have a variety of conditions.
Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is for individuals living with a mental illness, mental health diagnosis, and/or struggling with an addiction. IOP consists of individual therapy and group therapy utilizing evidence-based and experiential modalities. Our goal is to provide every client with the skills and tools needed to lead an emotionally balanced and fulfilling life.
What a Client Can Expect From LAT’s Intensive Outpatient Program for Mental Health
Clients can expect a smaller, more individualized program, with the one-on-one attention many clients need. Each week, clients will be involved in ten hours spread over three days. Nine of those hours are in the group setting, with one individual hour with a trained clinical staff member. The goal of our smaller-sized IOP is to help clients explore different obstacles in their lives, determine what they want in their future, learn how to set goals, and then work towards those goals.
In addition, unlike other programs, our IOP tends to be more hands on. This is achieved through incorporating music, mindfulness, and art groups into our Cognitive Behavioral focused curriculum. Staying active adds a welcome balance to clinical work that helps reduce a client’s fatigue. We have found that clients enjoy the blend of hands-on groups with our Cognitive and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and are more likely to engage with our program due to the diversity in group topics. We have also found that our IOP is a great step down program for these same reasons.
Who’s Right For Our Outpatient Treatment?
Our mental healthcare program and outpatient treatment services help clients readjust after being in an inpatient setting, as well as clients that are looking for a program to help them build a proper foundation and structure in their life. From a harm-reduction standpoint, our program does not use shame, and we strive to meet clients where they are emotionally, behaviorally, and cognitively. While we are not specifically an addiction- focused program, some of our clients do struggle with substance and non-substance addictions.
