Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program
* An admissions specialist will reach out to you shortly.
Origins Counseling Center in Dallas is pleased to offer patients a clinically sophisticated Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). This short-term treatment option is for individuals with psychiatric issues who require encouragement, close monitoring, and medication management throughout their healing process.
Origins’ Mental Health IOP can help you manage your symptoms by surrounding you with empathetic support and structure. Our dedicated IOP therapists and counselors are here to guide you every step of the way. If you or your loved one faces challenges like co-occurring mental health disorders, trauma, or process addictions that require personalized attention and care, our Mental Health IOP can help.
Mental Health Conditions We Treat
We successfully identify and treat a wide range of mental health disorders, including:
- Borderline personality disorder (BPD)
- Mood disorders
- Bipolar disorders
- Trauma and post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD)
- Adjustment disorders
- Grief and loss
- Obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD)
- Process addictions
Origins’ Mental Health IOP provides you with tools to help you manage your symptoms while ensuring you receive supportive care in other areas of your life. Our modalities and interventions provide you with the guidance and support necessary to thrive.
Our therapists are kind and professional and select modalities appropriate to your care. Examples of interventions you may receive include:
• Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
• Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
• “Seeking Safety” (A program by Lisa M. Najavits)
• Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
• Expressive Arts Therapy
While participating in our IOP, you’ll experience expertly delivered programming designed around an individualized plan of care. For many people with a mental health disorder, this individualized treatment plan often requires some psychiatric support. We can refer you to our prefered provider for psychiatric support while enrolled in our Mental Health IOP. Psychiatric support may include:
• Medication management
• Crisis intervention
• Visits with a psychiatric professional, as needed
Our Group Therapy Experience
Without adequate support in our lives, many of us may feel discouraged or even hopeless about the prospect of living with a mental health disorder. Our group of masters-level professionals are trained to recognize the unique symptoms and triggers related to mental illness.
We can help you learn coping mechanisms to deploy when you feel overwhelmed by your symptoms. These practical strategies have been shown to dramatically improve your quality of life.
In a comfortable group setting, we will encourage you to practice these skills and take an active role by setting healthy boundaries. This structured group experience offers you a chance to gain emotional stability in a safe environment while carefully monitoring your progress and medication status. Likewise, our sacred space within these groups also helps you to create a fulfilling social support system that can extend beyond your time in treatment.
Types of groups included in our IOP may include:
• DBT skills
• “Seeking safety” and trauma-focused groups
• Grief and loss
• Healing from anger
Once per week, you’ll have an individual session with a licensed therapist or counselor. During these sessions, your therapist may guide you in specific interventions, such as EMDR and biofeedback, when appropriate. We can also support you as you unveil and learn to address challenges in your work, home, or family life.
Using Your Insurance to Help Pay for Treatment
Being Appropriate for this Program
For many, IOP is a good option if you are medically stable and do not have time to commit to residential psychiatric treatment but want the support and motivation provided by group therapy sessions. Patients who choose this option can expect to see significant changes in their symptoms after several weeks or months of participating in an IOP program.
At this level of care, we expect each patient to be medically and psychiatrically stable and in an action stage of change. If you or a loved one are struggling with thoughts of suicide, stabilization is essential before joining our intensive outpatient program.
