At Chicago Behavioral Hospital we provide an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) that caters to those who wish to receive mental health treatment while maintaining their daily lives. Our intensive outpatient services are beneficial to individuals who are seeking help in overcoming mental health disorders such as:
Substance use problems, including alcohol, illegal drugs, and the improper use of prescription or over-the-counter medications
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Psychological trauma & abuse
Our intensive outpatient program is available Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Participants attend program three to five days per week. Our groups allow participants to come together and discuss their mental health issues in a constructive and supportive environment. Group therapy topics focus on:
Patients can access the intensive outpatient program even if they have not previously participated in the inpatient program at Chicago Behavioral Hospital.
We do not want transportation to be a barrier to receiving treatment. Transportation to and from our mental health facility may be available for individuals participating in outpatient programs.
At Chicago Behavioral Hospital, we understand that some mental health conditions are best treated with a combination of therapy and medication. Participants in our intensive outpatient program have the option to meet with a CBH psychiatrist who can prescribe medication to treat symptoms related to their mental health condition. Ongoing medication monitoring is also available upon completion of the intensive outpatient program.
