What is it?

Traditional intensive outpatient programs, or IOPs, provide treatment services as well as supportive group therapy. The MendCenter’s unique version of the IOP allows us to innovate on a daily basis. This means that daily treatment is highly specialized and individualized. Therefore, there is no such thing as a "treatment curriculum" that lasts 4, 6 or 8 weeks; rather, we engage the patient in meaningful treatment as long as is medically necessary. Using this approach, we have created two Specialty IOPs- one for the needs of schizophrenia spectrum disorders and the other for the specific needs of bipolar spectrum disorders. Both specialty programs run concurrently.

How we do it


Initial Consultation

The first step in joining one of our specialized treatment programs is the initial assessment, where we determine the combination of therapeutic interventions that would be most helpful.


Treatment plan

Our team works with patients and their families to develop a treatment plan tailored to their specific symptoms and psychological needs.



The MendCenter team meets with the patient and his or her family to assess progress and develop a plan for the next phase of treatment on a biweekly basis.
