The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a 3-6 month program that provides intensive group therapy to clients with active symptoms of mental illness. Treatment goals focus on avoiding psychiatric hospitalization or relapse, preventing deterioration of severe mood or psychotic symptoms, and maximizing level of independent functioning.
The Norwegian American Hospital IOP program is offered Monday through Friday from 10 am to 2 pm, and transportation is arranged by staff with an approval from medicar services.
This program incorporates computer technology as a communication skill through specialized groups. Clients are expected to attend the IOP program three days per week, pending insurance approval.
A continental breakfast and hot lunch is provided daily.
