Intensive Outpatient Behavioral Health Programs


Mercy Hospital South offers intensive day treatment programs for patients suffering from mental health and substance use disorders. This is an intermediate level of care designed to alleviate symptoms of mental illness, promote recovery and restore the patient’s ability to function.

Our program can serve as an alternative to inpatient care for some patients, or as a step-down from an inpatient psychiatric hospitalization. Our services are offered during the week, Monday - Friday. Treatment services are provided by Board Certified Psychiatrists and other clinical staff. 

We provide:

  • A comprehensive assessment and diagnosis
  • Individual, group and family therapy
  • Psychiatric evaluation and medication management
  • Family support services, including referrals for helpful resources and financial assistance

Adult Mental Health

We offer comprehensive intensive outpatient programs for adults age 18+.

  • Adult Mental Health Program: focuses on treatment of various emotional and behavioral disturbances such as depression, anxiety, trauma and other issues
  • Adult Dual Diagnosis/Addiction Program: focuses on treatment for patients with addiction and/or mental health issues

Adolescent Mental Health

Behavioral issues can range from issues with school, issues with peers, and social anxieties, to drug and alcohol abuse, defiance of authority figures and suicidal thoughts. We offer comprehensive intensive outpatient programs (IOP) for young adults ages 12-18. Adolescents referred to the IOP have experienced challenges with their mental health that require a higher level of care. Our team works closely with parents and schools to provide comprehensive mental health treatment along with family support to ensure positive long-term outcomes.

Who qualifies for this program?

Our programs are for patients with the following criteria:

  • Requiring a higher level of care than traditional outpatient therapy
  • Moderate to severe symptoms of depression, anxiety and other mood disorders
  • Inability to function (work, family, relationships or school) related to symptoms of mental illness
  • Compulsive use of mood-altering substances, alcohol, illicit or prescription drugs associated with negative consequences (family, work, legal, etc.)
  • Post inpatient stay for on-going stabilization, support and structure
