Virtual Intensive Outpatient Programs

Telemedicine has grown exponentially over the past few years as patients became increasingly familiar with participating in virtual therapy. Patients soon realized that online mental healthcare provided the same effective results they would experience from an in-person treatment setting.

Virtual IOP Services Include:

As with in-person outpatient treatment, most of the IOP curriculum involves participating in group therapy sessions. The sessions are coordinated to include a small group of individuals diagnosed with a similar condition. A licensed therapist provides discussion topics for the group and facilitates the conversation.

By working one-on-one with a licensed therapist, weekly individual therapy sessions guide the patient toward critical new insights. Utilizing evidence-based therapies, the therapist assists the patient in making meaningful changes in thoughts and behaviors that will improve functioning and quality of life.

A healthy family dynamic is essential to long-term treatment success, which is why family therapy is incorporated into the virtual IOP.

No matter your challenges, you don’t have to face them alone. At Elevation Behavioral Health, we’re here to support you every step of the way on your journey to recovery. Contact us today to learn more about our programs and begin your path to healing.

The Right Treatment For You

Benefits Of Virtual IOP Treatment For Mental Health

When an individual is already struggling with stress, anxiety, burnout, trauma, or other mental health challenges, battling traffic and other obstacles to get to a therapy session only amplifies the symptoms. Virtual mental health treatment allows you to receive treatment from anywhere, and offers an array of benefits, including:

The partial hospitalization program is the highest level of outpatient care and requires 25-30 hours of programming, such as five 5-hour modules or six 5-hour modules per week.

Opting for virtual IOP can lead to significant cost savings. By eliminating expenses associated with transportation, such as gas, parking fees, or public transit fares, individuals can allocate their resources toward essential aspects of their treatment journey. Moreover, virtual sessions may prevent the need for childcare arrangements, saving individuals from additional expenses and logistical challenges.

For many individuals, the prospect of attending therapy sessions from the comfort and privacy of their own home offers a sense of security and familiarity. Being in a familiar environment can help alleviate anxiety and create a conducive space for healing and self-exploration. Additionally, virtual IOP provides a less intimidating alternative for those who may feel apprehensive about entering a clinical setting that encourages engagement and participation.

Virtual IOP offers unparalleled flexibility in scheduling, accommodating our clients’ diverse needs and commitments. With the ability to access therapy sessions from anywhere with an internet connection, individuals can schedule appointments at times that align with their work, school, or family responsibilities. This flexibility empowers individuals to prioritize their mental health without disrupting their daily routines or sacrificing other vital obligations.

Traffic congestion, long commutes, and transportation-related stressors can exacerbate mental health symptoms and hinder treatment engagement. Virtual IOP removes these barriers, allowing individuals to focus solely on their therapeutic journey without the added stress of navigating traffic or transportation disruptions. This streamlined approach promotes a more relaxed and conducive environment for meaningful therapeutic work.

Virtual IOP enables clinicians to deliver personalized care tailored to each individual’s unique needs and circumstances. Through virtual platforms, therapists can engage in one-on-one sessions, group therapy, psychoeducation, and skill-building exercises, ensuring that individuals receive comprehensive support and guidance tailored to their specific goals and challenges.
