Mind Therapy Clinic offers a trauma-aware Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), which is an intensive behavioral health treatment program that offers a personalized, customized and multidisciplinary approach to treating psychiatric, dual-diagnosis and addictive disorders. It is designed specifically for those who have experienced some degree of trauma in their lives.
Trauma-aware IOP helps clients strengthen their coping skills, improve emotional regulation, develop practical life skills and create growth in important relationships after a traumatic event.
Trauma experiences often involve a threat to life or safety, but any situation that leaves a person feeling overwhelmed and alone can be traumatic, even if it does not involve physical harm. The most important factor in determining trauma is the individual’s subjective emotional experience of the event. Ultimately, traumatic events lead to a loss of one’s sense of security.
Mind Therapy Clinic’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) assists trauma clients with primary psychiatric diagnosis that requires intensive support and structure without 24-hour supervision. For some, PHP offers an alternative or the next step from hospital or residential programs. For those requiring housing during the program, we collaborate with skilled housing providers.
