Our Older Adult outpatient program is counseling for people 55 and older. It helps older adults with depression or anxiety and handles issues that come with getting older.
Our older adult mental health intensive outpatient program utilizes group therapy with licensed staff. In addition to counseling, a psychiatrist sees patients on a regular basis while in the program. Our team of professionals understands the issues that may come with aging and the unique challenges that this demographic faces.
Our senior adult intensive outpatient program is highly structured, but less restrictive than a residential level of care. Patients attend older adult outpatient treatment from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Friday. The treatment plan for senior mental health outpatient care is typically around six to eight weeks, but varies based on patient needs.
