Mental Health Intensive Outpatient
#1 Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program in Massachusetts
High Quality Evidence-Based Treatment
Blue Hills Recovery is your partner in managing your mental health. Let’s build a new life for yourself or your loved one together.
Once a client has completed our Partial Hospitalization (PHP) program, they are ready to move into Intensive Outpatient (IOP) care. During the IOP phase of treatment, mental health clients enjoy a bit more schedule flexibility. They will still attend the program 3-5 days a week for several hours at a time.
The idea is to incorporate the healing modalities of treatment with the client’s everyday life. The IOP phase gives them an opportunity to return to work or school in a limited capacity, spend more time with family and/or attend outside support groups. During this time, the structure and support of the program and guidance of their therapist is still available. We believe it is essential for patients to experience some independence while still in the program as it serves to boost confidence and isolate any remaining issues.
Most clients find that IOP treatment helps ease the transition back to everyday life. It allows them to ‘test drive’ their new recovery. Any issues they encounter can be quickly address since they are still fully engaged in our program. Ultimately our goal is for our clients to be able to re-enter their life with the protection and stability they develop under our care.
