Located in Charlotte, NC, we offer two day 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.
About Our Intensive Outpatient Program
An Intensive Outpatient (IOP) treatment program 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.

"The most effective part of treatment was group and the ability to express my concerns with other people." - Ann
"HopeWay was a good experience that helped me move forward into the next phase of my life." - Michael
All clients are paired with an individual psychiatrist who follows them through treatment. IOP clients continue to see their established provider(s) in their community as well, or if they don't have a primary therapist, HopeWay will work with the client to find the best provider for them.
