Intensive Outpatient Program

Intensive Outpatient Program

After graduating from an inpatient program at the Vines Hospital, patients have the opportunity to access a wide variety of outpatient services through our intensive outpatient program. This follow-up program is provided by a multidisciplinary team that personalizes treatment to meet each patient’s specific needs. Patients can receive outpatient services while still under the care of their private physician. Day or evening programming is available to meet the needs of our community.

We encourage patients to transition from inpatient or partial hospitalization programming into the intensive outpatient program, but those in stable conditions may begin treatment at this less intensive level of care. The results of a no-cost assessment determine the level of care to which a patient is initially admitted.

Program Details

This part-time day program typically runs Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 12:20 p.m., but there is flexibility to come on Tuesday or Thursday if you need to make a up a day.

  • Transportation is provided within Marion County.
  • Virtual options are also available if you are not physically able to come.

Process Group Therapy

Consisting of a small group of patients and led by a licensed therapist, you will be provided with an opportunity to speak confidentially about problems and concerns in a group where you can receive ongoing support and gain insight from others into self-defeating patterns of behaviors. Insight occurs when one discovers something important about oneself (i.e. patterns of behaviors, how certain behaviors impact interpersonal relationships, what led to the development of such behaviors). This group occurs for both PHP and IOP, Monday through Friday.

Psycho-educational Group therapy

Therapists will address diagnosis education, how stress impacts physical health, discharge planning, maladaptive vs adaptive coping skills, anger management and overall self-care. This group occurs for both PHP and IOP, Monday through Friday.


The Trauma track will focus on identifying what “Trauma” is. Patients will begin to not only understand their traumas, but how to cope with them while moving from the “surviving” role” to the “thriving” role. The ways in which this will be accomplished is through psychoeducation groups, CBT/DBT skills and assignments.
