The Trauma Enhanced Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is uniquely designed to help bring relief to individuals who have experienced a traumatic event which is causing ongoing mental health symptoms or PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). For those who struggle due to constant feelings of fear and a lack of control, the goal of this treatment track is to provide a sense of safety and stabilization.
Programming is offered within two levels of intensity to accommodate a variety of patient needs. Both tracks include group and individual sessions as well as weekly psychiatry or medication management meetings.
Level 1 offers trauma-specific educational and coping skills training in a closed group format within a broader mental health IOP. Patients in this track will attend these trauma-only groups multiple times per week.
- Available in Branchburg, Cranford (adults & adolescents), Freehold, Lawrenceville, or via teletherapy
Level 2 includes a higher intensity trauma-specific curriculum which also provides education and coping skills to manage symptoms as well as closed process therapy group only for Trauma patients.
