Appropriate Levels of Care in Mental Health
When Is Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Needed


Article by John A. Glovan, Psy.D.
Director, Health and Wellness Program

Everyone experiences times in their lives when it may be helpful to reach out for
assistance from a mental health professional. Many are able to receive help and guidance
on an outpatient basis by their primary care physicians, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners,
psychologists and mental health therapists. When the symptoms become more
debilitating, however, it will be important to consider a higher level of care.

Levels of Care In Mental Health

  • Outpatient Individual Therapy/Medication Management
  • Intensive Outpatient Therapy
  • Partial Hospitalization
  • Inpatient Hospitalization

Outpatient therapy is for those who are not in any danger to self, others or property and
are more resilient as they seek to work on treatment goals. Frequency is typically weekly
and is adjusted eventually to an as needed basis. Partial hospitalization is for those who
experience more serious signs and symptoms and need ongoing assessment, diagnostic
and treatment services typically at a minimum of 20 hours/ five days per week and return
home at night. Inpatient hospitalization requires admission into a hospital 24/7 which
includes ongoing nursing, medical, medication, assessment, diagnostic and treatment
services for those in very serious need of avoiding jeopardy of health to self or others.

What I would like to emphasize is the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Intensive
Outpatient Programs have been of tremendous assistance in helping its members return to
a productive and rewarding lifestyle both on the job and in general. It is a 7 week, 3 day
per week, 3 hour per day program. The main goal is to teach individuals healthy coping
skills which will increase health and wellness rather than continue to struggle with daily
functioning or to be placed on leave from work/school with no guidance or skills. The
latter often results in relapse of symptoms or minimal existence.
