Outpatient Programs Available at Pasadena Villa Outpatient Center – Raleigh
Outpatient programs have a range of intensity that helps support client’s clinical needs on the road to recovery. Offering a more frequent, structured program focused on group interventions, they can work in conjunction with outpatient providers to wrap around the needs of the client and the family.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
A Partial hospitalization program is the most comprehensive outpatient program available. Multidisciplinary treatment teams of qualified professionals, ranging from board-certified psychiatrists, registered nurses, licensed therapists, and counselors work in partnership with clients and families to set the clinical goals and path. In partial hospitalization, clients minimally attend programming five days a week, for approximately 5 hours each day. Group sessions utilize evidence-based practices like CBT, DBT, and EMDR that offer practical new ways to handle life’s challenges. Other groups are more insight oriented, and move into the psychodynamic and emotional aspects of life’s experience. All groups focus on communication, expressions, and social interaction to provide a real life, relevant space to practice new skills. Partial hospitalization offers an intensive setting without fully interrupting a client’s life path as they can live at home or school while attending programming. Transitional and sober living housing can be used as needed if the program is further from home or school.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Intensive outpatient programs are a step down from partial hospitalization programs and offer a less restrictive environment. Sometimes, intensive outpatient programs can be a direct step into care or serve as a support to traditional outpatient services. With less psychiatric physician and nursing involvement, clients have a full range of other qualified mental health professionals, licensed therapist, certified in evidence-based modalities like CBT, DBT, and EMDR to assist the recovery process. Intensive outpatient programs meet three days per week for 3-4 hours per day. Group sessions include the same as those in PHP and focus on targeting ways to sustain recovery after treatment. Intensive outpatient programs allow clients the ability to return to work or school as they attend the program.
