Intensive Outpatient Program


South Nassau’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is another level of care for those who need treatment for mental health conditions. This three-day-a-week program serves those who either:

  • Complete the Partial Hospitalization Program and can benefit from the cognitive behavioral treatment
  • Require more than the once-a-week treatment available as part of our other behavioral health services

Goals of this program are to better manage symptoms; process life events; learn appropriate methods of communication; and enhance the ability to function in social, occupational, educational and interpersonal settings.

Our Experts

As with South Nassau’s other behavioral health programs, the professionals working with patients in the Intensive Outpatient Program include psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, psychiatrists and art therapists.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is a main component of this program, and includes topics such as:

  • Daily psychotherapy
  • Creative expression
  • Emotion regulation
  • Symptom management
  • Recovery
  • Wellness

Participants are usually in the program for three weeks to six months, meeting three times a week. And they have a choice of either meeting on a midday track (10 a.m.–2 p.m.) or afternoon track (Noon–3:45 p.m.).
