TrustPoint Hospital provides a full continuum of care to ensure that individuals can receive the type and level of treatment that best meets their unique needs and that can best help them to achieve their specific goals. In order from greatest to least intensity of interventions, this continuum spans residential care, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), an intensive outpatient program (IOP), and traditional outpatient services.
Traditional outpatient services may be an ideal level of care for men and women who have already completed the more intensive levels of care and who can benefit from less frequent therapeutic interactions to support their ongoing healing. These services may also be appropriate for individuals whose needs are not severe enough to require a higher level of care at this time.
Care at the traditional outpatient level offers a safe and supportive environment for adults to learn new ways of coping with life’s stressors and resolve problems. Each patient will receive evaluation and treatment utilizing a wide range of therapies including cognitive, behavioral, interpersonal, supportive therapy, and medication management, when needed.
The following is a partial list of some of the more common issues and disorders for which individuals receive traditional outpatient services:
- Eating disorders
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Anger Management
- Grief/loss or change
- Poor self-esteem
- Functional problems related to stress
- Other emotional and behavioral conditions
The following are examples of the more common and beneficial types of traditional outpatient services:
Individual therapy: One-on-one meetings between an individual and a counselor or therapist can be valuable opportunities for patients to process experiences, address issues that they may be hesitant or unwilling to bring up in a group environment, and receive personalized feedback and guidance from an experienced professional.
Group therapy: Group therapy sessions offer many benefits, including opportunities to share insights, learn from the experiences of others, practice healthy and productive interpersonal communication skills, and form valuable relationships with others in recovery. Led by experienced professionals, groups encourage the active involvement of participants, and their content will be influenced by the contributions of those who are taking part. That said, the following are among the common topics that may be addressed in groups:
- Anger management
- Disease/disorder education
- Medication management
- Grief and loss
- Guilt and shame
- Stress management
- Healthy boundaries
Discharge planning: At TrustPoint Hospital, we place great emphasis on ensuring that all patients have the support and direction to maintain and build upon the progress that they make with us after they completed their time in treatment or transitioned to their next level of care. By the time a patient has finished with traditional outpatient services, he or she will have a thorough plan that documents his or her progress and identifies professional referrals, community-based resources, and other necessary support services.
