Intensive Outpatient Treatment
For patients who are lower risk or no longer require the full day of programming that our Partial Hospitalization Program offers, the adult Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Peachford Hospital assists adults dealing with psychiatric issues as well as those with a combination of mental health and substance abuse issues.
An adult IOP offers the same set of experienced nurses, therapists and counselors as our other programs for adults. The program offers more flexibility and independence for adult patients who’ve continued to progress in their treatment goals, but still need more care and oversight than is provided by typical outpatient counseling. IOP patients meet daily 9 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. at our behavioral healthcare hospital.
ADULT DUAL DIAGNOSIS SERVICES
Located just north of downtown Atlanta, Georgia, Peachford Hospital’s Dual Diagnosis Program is designed to meet the needs of adults who have both primary psychiatric disorders and struggle with a substance use issue. Based on 12-Step and relapse prevention models, our adult intensive outpatient treatment offers immediate access to a structured environment and offers assistance in beginning and maintaining recovery.
What is Dual Diagnosis treatment?
Dual Diagnosis treatment is for co-occurring disorders, or a mental health disorder and substance use disorder at the same time. A mental health issue can often be the root cause of an addiction, and treatment programs that do not address both needs can often fall short of getting a patient the help they need.
Some benefits of dual diagnosis include:
- Substance use treatment
- Mental health treatment
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Medication management
ADULT PSYCHIATRIC SERVICES
Designed to meet the needs of adults who have primary psychiatric disorders, Peachford Hospital addresses mental distress and issues that often interfere with a person’s ability to function at work or home with our intensive mental health outpatient program. Our mental health hospital for adults offers adult iop services designed specifically for psychiatric disorders.
Mental health conditions are characterized by alterations in thinking, mood or behavior. Early intervention and psychiatric care is needed before these issues become potentially life-threatening. Our goal at Peachford is to bring patients to a place of healthy functioning through coping tools we teach them.
Levels of Care
By offering multiple levels of care, Peachford Hospital is able to better serve our patients and their family members wherever they may be on the journey to recovery.
In addition to our Intensive Outpatient Programs, we offer Partial Hospitalization (PHP), inpatient services, Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) and more at our psychiatric hospital. Each one of these services can help our patients reach their goals and be provided with the tools necessary to live a happier, healthier life.
If a patient needs to step up or step down to a different level of care, Peachford Hospital is able to provide that level of care. We are here to help you or your loved one, and our many treatment services along the continuum of care allow us to do what we do best – helping people when they need it most.
