Intensive Outpatient Program

Adult Intensive Outpatient Treatment

The Program

The Medical Center of Aurora’s Adult Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program (MHIOP) is designed to support and maintain mental health in an outpatient setting. The purpose of the program is to equip participants with the necessary understanding and tools to facilitate more in depth therapy as it relates to their trauma, anxiety, depression, or chronic pain experiences. The program will focus on empowering participants to explore their own growth and healing process within a group setting.

Outpatient Therapy

Patients come to the program voluntarily as a transition from the hospital, their home, or by physician referral.

The Intensive Outpatient Therapy Program provides comprehensive psychiatric care. Patients participate in treatment during the day and return home each afternoon, three to five days per week.

For referrals and assessments, please call (303) 360-3562.
