Flexible Outpatient Care
Garland Behavioral Hospital has introduced an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for patients that don’t need around-the-clock care. IOP is designed for patients experiencing emotional distress that is impacting their ability to function in at least one or more areas of their life. Often, they’re experiencing issues like anxiety, depression, and more. Patients in IOP need adequate support and protective factors to provide stability for recovery, but do not require 24-hour supervision. IOP is a less restrictive option than our Partial Hospitalization Program and meets with lesser frequency, offering patients greater flexibility in how they incorporate treatment into their busy lives. Many patients will step down into IOP from our PHP program or another inpatient treatment program. Patients in IOP will see a psychiatrist within the first two days of admission and at least once a month from there.
IOP meets three days a week from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The outpatient team will work with you to find the three weekdays that work best for your schedule.
