Intensive Outpatient Treatment Programs (IOP)


Our outpatient programs are for adults age 18 and older, as well as adolescents age 13-17, who do not require the 24 hour supervision provided by an inpatient program.  Houston Behavioral Healthcare Hospital’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is for the patient who has achieved some stability, but continues to need more intensive treatment.
