Gaining control of your life is possible through CHR’s specialized Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) for adults
struggling with mental illness, substance abuse, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. The IOP programs
offer a high level of treatment and care that is trauma-sensitive and gender-responsive for three hours per day and
up to four days per week. We help individuals reach recovery and find hope through group therapy, education about
mental illness and substance use, cognitive and behavioral coping strategies, family interventions and medication
management. These programs are open to individual’s families for education, support and collaboration in
treatment planning and run for approximately 4-5 weeks.

Women’s Intensive Outpatient Program:

The Women’s IOP is a gender-responsive and trauma-sensitive treatment program. The services are provided
by female therapists who are experts in how trauma effects women’s behavioral health due to cultural and social
circumstances. Therapeutic interventions are provided in a caring and empowering environment to engage women in
gaining wisdom and strength to make decisions that enhance growth and health. Women who experience addiction,
relationship stressors and mental health symptoms that interfere with personal goals will benefit from this program.
Men’s Intensive Outpatient Program:

The Men’s IOP is a gender-responsive and trauma-sensitive treatment program. The services are provided by male
therapists who are experts in how trauma effects men’s behavioral health due to cultural and social circumstances.
Therapeutic interventions are provided in an environment that is sensitive to how traditional gender role expectations
shape male clients beliefs, values, and expectations for treatment. Men who experience addiction, relationship
stressors, and mental health symptoms that interfere with personal goals will benefit from the program.

Intensive Outpatient Program for Men and Women:

This program intervenes to prevent individuals’ behavioral health symptoms from progressing or relapsing. Individuals
discharging from inpatient psychiatric or substance use treatment can use this program to help transition back into the
community.

Individuals may access outpatient treatment if appropriate level of care needed to support one’s recovery or may step down from the Intensive Outpatient program to our Phase Two, Recovery Action Group. This group meets two days a week, Tuesday and Thursday, for three hours each day. During this phase participants focus on maintaining their recovery and building more concrete skills to support a healthy lifestyle. Staff hope to support participants in recognizing, examining and understanding the effects of substance use and trauma on their lives and the lives of their families.

Our Outpatient Services also consist of one-on-one individual therapy, recovery support and outpatient groups such as Relapse Prevention, Nurturing Families and Moral Reconation Therapy.
