Medication management can be an important part of the treatment process. If medication is recommended, our medication provider will see the client on a regular basis until an ongoing provider is established. If a client has an outside provider and they would like to continue to guide their medication during Sandstone IOP, a release will be required to ensure integrated care.
The mental health program may be appropriate for a young adult who is using substances to cope with their mental health issues. If substance use continues to be the primary issue being addressed, then a SUD program may be the correct care and a referral will be made.
Our young adult (18-30), Mental Health IOP is a comprehensive, collaborative outpatient program that meets 4 times a week for 3 hours a day. Our intimate, small groups focus on a well-balanced recovery, utilizing weekly multifamily group, academic/vocation “adulting” skill building 2 times weekly; specialized group therapy led by licensed clinicians and medical providers who are available to meet participants for medication management and collaborate weekly with each clinician. Clinical groups are a combination of skills-based programs emphasizing the use of DBT and CBT, and person-centered process groups for individuals experiencing mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and previous trauma.
Family plays a vital role in the overall wellness of each individual served. Individual family sessions are offered bi-weekly to examine the role the family plays in creating new patterns of behavior and changing old behavior that reinforced negative behaviors. Connection is key in recovery. Our program also utilizes weekly Multi-Family group to reinforce new skills being learned in groups, as well as a source of support and guidance.
The young adult mental health program runs from 9am-12pm on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday of each week. In addition, the program provides 2 hours of Academic/Vocational work per week, on Tuesday and Thursday from 1-2pm.
