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.
