Cottonwood’s intensive outpatient program and partial hospitalization programs are designed to build the skills needed for long-term recovery when residential treatment has been completed or is not necessary. Going beyond the level of support offered in traditional support groups, IOP and PHP groups are led by Master’s level therapists and support staff who have extensive experience in mental health treatment and addiction recovery.
While topics vary and rotate through the duration of the treatment, clients receive cognitive behavioral therapy that focuses on learning how to manage behavior and emotion.
Other treatment approaches include:
Engaging in IOP/PHP gives participants greater long-term outcomes by preparing them to manage their own mental health and substance use disorders. In addition to teaching clients life skills like budgeting and community resource identification, they also learn coping mechanisms such as yoga, meditation, and recreation therapy.
