What is it?

Traditional intensive outpatient programs, or IOPs, provide treatment services as well as support group therapy. The MendCenter’s unique version of the IOP is called the Transforma Method. Using this approach, we aim to help patients create and live a life of their choosing amidst their suffering.

Learn more about how the Transforma Method differs from traditional group therapy.

How we do it


Initial Consultation

The first step in creating a specialized treatment program 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.
