Geriatric IOP Services
Geriatric Intensive Outpatient Program
Southeast Behavioral Hospital offers a geriatric intensive outpatient program (IOP) to help older adults learn to cope with mental health issues and enjoy their lives to the fullest. The program uses a group therapy model so patients can share experiences and learn from one another. Geriatric IOP patients do not stay overnight at the hospital, so they can maintain their home responsibilities while in the program.
Geriatric IOP is designed to serve as a step-down from our geriatric inpatient program for continued progress, but that is not required. Older adult patients who do not need the around-the-clock care of our inpatient program can enter straight into geriatrc IOP. A no-cost, confidential assessment at admission helps us determine the right level of care for a patient.
