Will I have to take time off work or school to attend the program?

Our program provides 9-12 hours a week of therapy and group that are spread throughout the week. IOP programming usually requires a minimum of 9-hours of attendance (depending on your insurance carrier) and most patients are able to select from both day-time and evening-time sessions in such a way that allows them to participate in programming while still going to work and/or school. Occasionally, adjustments do need to be made within your schedule and we will do what we can to assist you in the emotional process of requesting schedule changes from your employer or your school.

What if I already have a counselor, nutritionist or doctor?

We will collaborate closely with your existing counselor, nutritionist, physician, nurse practitioner, etc., however, under certain circumstances, we may require that you work with a dietitian and psychotherapist within our treatment team for the duration of your treatment at IOP level of care.

How many weeks will I be in the program?

The program is individually tailored to meet your needs. We will do our best to advocate for you with your insurance carrier to allow you as much time as you may need to be covered in our program. Patients can expect to spend between several weeks and several months at this level of care.
