Our New Day Treatment Programs
Garland Behavioral Hospital’s outpatient programs for adults can help patients recover from mental and behavioral health issues while allowing them to return to their homes, to work or to school after sessions. Our goal is to provide patients with an opportunity to learn new coping and communication skills that promote recovery, improve self-regulation and help prevent relapse in a safe and secure setting.
What Types of Outpatient Programs Do We Offer?
Garland Behavioral Hospital offers multiple levels of care, including Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programs that can address different levels of need for our patients. Both programs focus on improving overall patient wellness and encourage support from family, like-minded peers seeking treatment, and other community resources through evidence-based treatment options. Treatment occurs in a structured, therapeutic environment that can help patients confront issues and improve their emotional health in a secure, comfortable setting.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
At a Partial Hospitalization Program, a patient attends most of the day, but returns to home or work in the afternoon before returning to the treatment center again in the morning. The structure and constant support is good for recovery, and it is a great option for those in treatment who wish to stay at home or live with their family while getting the help that they need.
A PHP also is a great “step-down” for those finishing up inpatient treatment, as it is still rigidly structured and similar enough to inpatient treatment that the comfort level remains the same. However, it allows more freedom as the patient is given the evenings off and then returns to treatment in the morning.
Our PHP runs Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Our Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to allow patients with mental health issues the most flexibility while maintaining a positive therapeutic relationship with treatment and medical professionals through weekly structured meetings.
Three times a week, patients will receive treatment for a few hours through support groups, individual therapies, group therapies, a psychologist, medical professionals and more. Intensive outpatient care is structured and designed around the needs of our patients by allowing them to live at home, or go to work, while also taking steps in the journey to recovery.
A mental health outpatient program can be the entry point in treatment if a patient wishes to maintain a flexible schedule during treatment and is also functional enough to forgo PHP or inpatient treatment.
However, intensive outpatient treatment can also be a natural “step-down” from higher levels of care, like inpatient and partial hospitalization programs. By only attending sessions a few times a week for a few hours, an IOP provides the most freedom and flexibility while also assuring a patient receives the care and support system that they need to continue to recover.
