Outpatient Psychiatric Treatment

Personalized care options for mental health conditions

We understand that behavioral health care for adults and children with mental health conditions is never provided on a one-size-fits-all basis. Once you’ve had a thorough evaluation from one of our specialty trained psychiatrists or psychotherapy experts, we’ll work with you to create a customized treatment plan that addresses your particular concerns.

Outpatient treatment options for adults, teens and children

We provide a range of therapeutic options on an outpatient basis designed around the needs of each patient. The most common types of care we offer include:

  • Individual psychotherapy (talk therapy)
  • Psychiatric evaluations and medical management, including medication

Partial Hospitalization Program

Our most intensive outpatient treatment option is the Partial Hospitalization Program. This program provides comprehensive care for adults who do not require inpatient psychiatric care, but would benefit from a more intensive therapeutic experience. Partial Hospitalization Program is an intensive day-treatment program for adults with severe mental health conditions that allows patients to return home each evening. 

Some of the other forms of treatment your doctor or therapist may include in your care plan may include are:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy: Cognitive behavioral therapy, also known as CBT, is a therapy technique that focuses on working on your thought patterns and behaviors. We use CBT to help patients recognize their unique cognitive processes, or their thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes. Once you see how these processes influence how you think and act, we can help you change harmful patterns in how you feel and behave.
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy: Dialectical behavioral therapy, or DBT, is an evidence-based treatment shown to be an effective treatment for patients with suicidal thoughts, self-injury or patients with borderline personality disorder. You’ll work on becoming more aware of your emotions and learn how to deal with negative emotions and stress that affect your life. You’ll also learn ways to improve relationships with loved ones. Our DBT team members have advanced training in this specialized therapy.
  • Electroconvulsive therapy: Electroconvulsive therapy, or ECT, uses small electrical currents on patients under anesthesia in a carefully controlled setting. This painless procedure has been shown to be effective for certain conditions, like catatonia and severe depression, when other treatments haven’t worked. Your doctor will decide if ECT can help you and provide a referral if needed.

If your condition is severe, we may recommend that you or your child enter inpatient care. This allows us to provide intensive treatment in a controlled environment, as well as give you tools to better manage your condition once you go home. Learn about our inpatient psychiatric care options.
