Alternatives Program

The Alternatives Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) focuses on helping mid to late life adults who may find it difficult to face the changes and challenges that come with growing older, and that can sometimes be confusing and overwhelming.

The goal of the program is to help people recognize the problems keeping them from having a healthy and positive life as we age, that prevent living a satisfying life. The program is devoted to providing opportunities to address emotional and mental health issues by finding healthy solutions to cope with these problems.

The Alternatives Program provides a therapeutic environment for group and individual therapy. Counseling services are held Monday through Friday, but each person has an individualized schedule and treatment plan for accomplishing their treatment goals.  The areas of concentration include:  Depression, Anxiety, Unresolved Grief and Loss, Transitional Life issues, Isolation and loneliness, Adjustment or Loss of Independence, substance abuse, Anger, etc.

Highly credentialed and experienced staff work to develop a treatment plan that provides the following components of care:  Screening and assessment of needs, goal setting and treatment team meetings, group therapy, individual therapy, coordination with Primary Care Physicians for medication management, symptom management and education, and a support system. 

Transportation within a 30 mile radius provided free of charge.  Meals, drinks and snacks are complimentary.  Confidentiality and HIPPA protected.
