Program (IOP) in NC
Located in Charlotte, NC, we offer two day treatment programs at HopeWay, Intensive Outpatient (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization (PHP). These different levels of care offer treatment options for those not needing Residential Treatment (RTC), or for those who need a step-down after our RTC program.
Intensive Outpatient Program in Charlotte, NC
An Intensive Outpatient treatment program (IOP) for mental health is designed to support those individuals who have suffered from depression, among other mental health diagnoses, and are learning how to transition back into their life.
This includes those who want to try group therapy to help gain perspective on their mental illness or those who want to continue therapy and growth as they navigate the intricacies of life.
Clients attend group sessions with peers and participate in classroom-style educational groups, similar to PHP clients. The major difference between IOP and PHP treatment is that there are not as many therapy sessions, so a client may only participate in each integrative therapy one time during treatment. We encourage clients entering an intensive outpatient program to consider this as they evaluate their treatment needs.
Our Intensive Outpatient Program Schedule
Mornings: 3 hours/day Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 9 am - 12 pm (virtual)
Evenings: 3 hours/day Monday, Wednesday, Thursday. 6 - 9 pm (in-person)

Our Intensive Outpatient Program for Mental Health
Clients joining IOP will meet with a psychiatric provider at HopeWay for an initial evaluation just prior to beginning treatment. During treatment, clients will attend IOP sessions at HopeWay while meeting with their existing psychiatrist and/or therapist in their community. If a client in IOP requests a referral to new individual providers, HopeWay will work with the client to make an appropriate recommendation.
