Mount Regis Center’s mental health intensive outpatient program offers clinically excellent care in a supportive treatment setting. Through our program, we provide a range of effective therapies and services along with individualized support for each client.
What Is IOP?
Intensive outpatient programming (IOP) offers clients a more intensive level of care than traditional outpatient services. It may be ideal for someone who does not require round-the-clock care but still needs structured support on the road to long-term healing.
Mount Regis Center is pleased to provide focused IOP services for people who are struggling with mental illnesses. We deliver this program at our Blacksburg, Virginia, location.
Clients usually participate in our mental health intensive outpatient program, or IOP, for eight to 12 weeks, depending on their needs and progress. During your time in our program, you can attend three sessions per week and participate in a range of groups and therapies that are designed to support your needs.
Who Can Take Part in the Mental Health IOP at Mount Regis Center?
Our specialized IOP is open to adults age 18 and older who are suffering from mental health concerns. Our goal is to provide a supportive treatment option for people who may be stepping down from a higher level of care or stepping up from traditional outpatient therapy.
To begin the admissions process, we ask that prospective clients and referring professionals contact our admissions department to speak with one of our admissions coordinators. Our coordinators will work with the IOP counselor to schedule an intake assessment, which will help determine whether our program and level of care is a good fit for the prospective client.
A member of our admissions team is available 24/7 to provide support for individuals, families, and referring providers.
What Does Our Mental Health IOP Treat?
We’ve designed our specialized IOP to provide care for common psychiatric concerns, including:
- Bipolar disorder
To support our clients’ diverse needs, we offer groups on a variety of behavioral health topics that may include mindfulness, managing emotions, trauma, addiction, family-of-origin concerns, relationships, and spirituality.
What Services Are Offered in Our Mental Health IOP?
One of our program’s primary interventions is group therapy. We offer groups three times a week — on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. — under the guidance of a licensed professional counselor (LPC). Depending on a client’s needs, they may also participate in individual and family therapies with our LPCs.
During your time in our IOP, multiple modalities might play a role in your treatment. These can include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and narrative therapy. We may also draw on principles of person-centered, family systems, and strengths-based approaches and incorporate psychoeducation as needed.
If appropriate for your care, you may meet with a family nurse practitioner (FNP) for individual medication counseling and participate in educational groups that discuss psychiatric medications. To help you access medical care or additional medication management services, our staff members can coordinate with your psychiatrist, primary care physician, or other provider. We can also refer you to other medical professionals when needed.
When your time in our IOP ends, we will offer resources and recommendations that can support you as you continue your healing journey. Through our premier mental health IOP, located at our Blacksburg, Virginia, campus, we aim to empower each client to lead a richer, happier life.
