Adult Intensive Outpatient Program in Conway, AR

The intensive outpatient program (IOP) at Conway Behavioral Health Hospital may be the ideal level of care for men and women who can benefit from structured support with limited treatment hours as they prepare to transition out of care. 

Who Can Participate in IOP?

Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) accepts adults age 18 and above. Some people enroll in our IOP after completing another level of care with us, while others enter treatment at the IOP level. 

If either of the following two statements applies to you, IOP may have the solutions you’ve been seeking: 

  • You’ve already completed a more intensive level of care, such as inpatient, residential, or partial hospitalization, and you can benefit from step-down support to ease your transition out of care. 
  • You need a more structured treatment experience than you can get via traditional outpatient therapy, but your needs are not severe enough to warrant more intensive services.  

All admissions decisions for IOP, and the care that each person receives while in the program, are determined solely by what is best for each individual. 

What Disorders Are Treated in IOP?

How Does IOP Work?

Understand the fundamentals of our intensive outpatient program

If you participate in IOP at Conway, you’ll attend treatment three to five days per week. Each IOP session includes three hours of care. Thus, depending upon your needs and preferences, you’ll take part in nine to 15 hours of therapy each week.  

Most IOP participants remain in the program for about 23 sessions. Of course, as we do with all elements of treatment at all levels, we’ll work with you to determine the length of stay that best fits your situation and helps you achieve your goals.  

The majority of your time in IOP will involve group therapy. Groups are excellent opportunities to learn about the challenges you’re facing, develop essential skills, learn from others who are in similar situations, and share your insights and experiences.  

The specific content of any group will depend upon the contributions of participants, but groups are usually focused on a certain topic or theme. The following are among the issues that may be addressed via groups in our IOP: 

  • Education about symptoms 
  • How to manage symptoms 
  • Healthy alternative responses to triggers 
  • Anger management 
  • Conflict resolution 
  • Self-esteem 
  • Communication 
  • Improving social skills 
  • Healthy relationships 
  • Regulating emotions 
  • Creative arts 
  • Journaling 
  • Relaxation 

We also offer family groups and family therapy sessions for IOP participants. 

All groups in our IOP are led by experienced professionals, typically master’s-level licensed clinicians.
