Adult outpatient treatment at Sierra Vista Hospital includes partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP) designed to helps adults who struggle with a behavioral health disorder, chemical dependency or co-occurring disorders (dual diagnosis) while allowing them to live at home.
Outpatient treatment is for people who do not require 24-hour care. Patients can transition to an outpatient program after leaving an inpatient program. A free and confidential assessment determines the level of care to which a person is initially admitted.
Behavioral Health IOP
The adult behavioral health IOP is designed to help adults who need their behavioral health disorder stabilized but do not require the structure of a PHP or the 24-hour intensive care of an inpatient program.
Sessions are held:
Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
The average length of stay is 20 sessions.
Participants typically attend three groups per day, three days a week. Scheduling can be arranged to better accommodate the participant’s therapeutic needs.
Chemical Dependency IOP
The chemical dependency IOP treats adults who have a chemical dependency issue but are stable enough to attend work or school. Our goal is to help patients attain an alcohol- and drug-free lifestyle and resume their highest level of functioning.
A psychiatrist directs the program and certified alcohol- and drug-treatment counselors conduct group therapy. Each patient’s specific needs determine their attendance requirements. Patients must be free of detox symptoms and signs of addiction while enrolled in the program.
Sessions are held:
Monday through Thursday from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The program is complete after 20 to 32 sessions. After completing the program, patients can attend an aftercare program for at least one year. Light snacks are provided.
Behavioral Health PHP
The adult behavioral health PHP offers adults treatment for a behavioral health disorder using all the same features as our inpatient behavioral health program. Unlike inpatient care, this program does not require 24-hour care or overnight stay at the hospital. Treatment is overseen by a psychiatrist.
The program is held
Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:20 p.m.
Dual Diagnosis PHP
The dual diagnosis PHP provides a structured outpatient level of care for the treatment of adults with co-occurring chemical dependency and behavioral health disorders. Patients can receive help and work through both issues while living at home.
The program is held:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:20 p.m.
