IOP Mental Health: Why Choose Us?

You receive services from licensed mental health providers who want to see you succeed. Our IOP enables you to apply skills and coping methods you learn in therapy to your daily life. This approach gives you experience processing real-world challenges and triggers before completing treatment.

Highlights of our program include:

  • More of the support you need: We offer more programming than traditional IOPs. Instead of three hours a day of group therapies, we offer five. These additional sessions enable you to build and strengthen the skills necessary for long-term mental well-being.
  • Skilled staff: You participate in group therapy led by licensed mental health counselors, licensed social workers and registered nurses. They help you feel at ease so you can get more out of each session. If you take medications, a psychiatrist monitors your response and tailors the type and dose to your needs.
  • Easy access: One phone call is often all it takes to get started in our IOP mental health program. We have rolling admissions, so you can join at any time. Take the next step by scheduling an intake assessment. Reach us by calling 727-541-2646 ext. 1137.
  • Dual diagnosis IOP: People experiencing mental illness and a substance use disorder receive care that addresses both concerns. We teach you how mental illness can fuel addiction and why maintaining sobriety is essential. You also have access to a range of group therapies that can help you cope with addiction recovery and mental health challenges.
