Adult Outpatient Services
Sometimes traditional outpatient individual therapy and weekly visits are not enough to help a person through their mental health problems or substance abuse problems. When a person needs more personalized outpatient care, additional oversight and medication management, exploring treatment programs at an IOP hospital may be the right solution.
Our therapeutic Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are administered by experienced clinicians. They include process and educational group discussions. Groups focus on life skills training, recovery skills, communication and relationship skills, and relapse prevention plans.
Our integrated treatment and services are designed to provide a smooth transition from inpatient to home, or to help prevent the need for inpatient admission. IOP usually meets at our treatment center multiple days per week, depending on the needs of the patient.
While in IOP, behavioral health professionals and other caring staff will work with you closely. They will help you be successful with your mental health treatment goals and your life in general. Additional resources and referrals will be discussed as appropriate.
West Hills Behavioral Health Hospital offers three programs:
Substance Abuse Treatment Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Sometimes patients need more extensive care and treatment as they transition out of an inpatient or residential rehab program. It can be difficult to simply jump right back into everyday life and be expected to maintain sobriety without help or a support system. Our substance abuse IOP helps patients through this crucial transition time.
The focus in our substance abuse treatment IOP track is on recovery and relapse prevention and is composed of group therapy and psychoeducation. This addiction treatment option is available for patients who are in recovery from various substances, from prescription drugs to alcohol. Meeting times vary.
Please call 775-323-0478 for more information.
Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
After an inpatient mental health program or residential treatment, many patients need a transition from such intensive care. This intensive program can be a bridge for patients after inpatient or residential care. It can also help prevent admission to higher levels of care for patients in need of more oversight and treatment than standard weekly therapist visits.
The focus in our mental health IOP track is on life skills training, communication and relationship skills, and is composed of group therapy and psychoeducation. Meeting times vary.
Dual Diagnosis Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
This program is for adults suffering with mental illness issues and co-occurring disorders related to substance abuse. The West Hills Behavioral Health Hospital addiction program was created in order to:
- Assist patients in gaining sobriety from illicit drugs and alcohol through teaching substance abuse lessons, process groups and introduction to community-based support systems.
- Assist patients in changing thoughts, behaviors and attitudes that have led to life problems.
- Assist patients in developing a continuing aftercare plan, including intensive outpatient and aftercare programs. This can improve their quality of life, enhance family relationships and become productive members of society.
