Why Choose Our IOP

At Colorado Mental Health Services- Powered By Red Rock Recovery Center, our Intensive Outpatient Program provides a high level of care while allowing individuals to continue with their daily responsibilities. Our program offers a flexible schedule that allows individuals to receive the treatment they need without disrupting their work or family life. Our IOP combines individual therapy,  group therapy, and psychiatric services to provide a comprehensive approach to mental health treatment, addressing both personal and social factors that may contribute to mental health conditions

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a type of mental health treatment program that provides more intensive support and treatment than traditional outpatient therapy, but less intensive than inpatient hospitalization. The following is a potential outline for a mental health IOP curriculum, which may be adapted or modified based on the needs and resources of the specific program:

1. Orientation and Assessment

  • Introductions, program overview, and expectations
  • Comprehensive mental health assessments, including diagnostic evaluations and evaluation of current symptoms and functioning

2. Psychoeducation

  • Overview of mental health conditions and their symptoms, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and others
  • Information about medication management, including common psychiatric medications and their side effects
  • Coping skills and techniques for managing mental health symptoms, such as mindfulness, relaxation techniques, and cognitive behavioral strategies

3. Group Therapy

  • Psychotherapy in a group setting, focusing on specific topics such as anger management, communication skills, and coping with stress
  • Focus on building a supportive community among participants

4. Individual Therapy

  • One-on-one therapy sessions with a licensed mental health professional to address individualized treatment goals and concerns

5. Family Therapy

  • Family sessions to address family dynamics and provide support and education for family members of participants

6. Wellness Activities

  • Activities that promote physical and mental wellness, such as exercise, nutrition, and stress management techniques

7. Regression Prevention

  • Developing strategies and skills to prevent regression, including identification of triggers and development of coping skills
  • Creating a plan for ongoing treatment and support after completion of the IOP

8. Discharge Planning

  • Developing a comprehensive aftercare plan that may include referrals to outpatient therapy, support groups, or other resources

Overall, the goal of the IOP curriculum is to provide a comprehensive treatment approach that addresses the individual needs of each participant and supports their ongoing mental health and wellness.
