Outpatient Treatment gives patients convenient ways to pursue the continuum of therapeutic care they need, while easing back into the rhythm of work and family life.
Here at Valley Hospital, there are two Outpatient Treatment program options:
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Offered as a transitional option for patients experiencing ongoing symptoms after inpatient treatment, PHP provides four hours of clinical therapy each day (with lunch provided), aimed at developing coping and interpersonal skills. A weekly nursing education group helps patients understand their medication, diagnosis and other issues that could impact their overall mental health.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
IOP provides intensive individual, family and group therapies three times a week, three hours per day that focus on reducing symptoms and preventing functional decline. A step-down service after hospitalization, partial hospitalization or residential care, this level of care empowering clients to develop dignity, build character and transform dysfunctional behaviors into positive life skills.
