Intensive Outpatient Program for Adults

Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical CenterDOWNLOAD Brochure

The Intensive Outpatient Program for Adults (IOPA) is part of the continuum of services offered in the Adult Outpatient Program (AOP). When a patient needs more support and treatment than is generally available in a traditional outpatient mental health setting, a referral may be made to this program.Download brochure

Services Offered

A team of licensed mental health professionals provide short-term, urgent psychiatric treatment for patients who are able to function safely while they continue to live in the community.  Patients attend the program every morning, Monday through Friday. A typical treatment day consists of three groups for symptom reduction and management. The groups are influenced by CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) & DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) with an emphasis on skills training. Patients also receive weekly individual psychotherapy sessions with an IOPA therapist and weekly medication reviews by the IOPA nurse practitioner or psychiatrist. Transportation assistance can be provided to and from the program daily, depending upon distance. When discharged, usually in about a month, most patients return to their former outpatient therapist, empowered with the skills to better manage their symptoms.

Clinic Staff

IOPA is staffed by a nurse practitioner/psychiatrist, licensed social work/mental health therapists, and a rehabilitation therapist.

Insurance

Various insurances are accepted, including Medical Assistance, Medicare, and some private insurance which authorize intensive outpatient psychiatric treatment.  Insurance coverage will be verified prior to your first appointment.

To make a referral contact Tammy Donohue LCSW-C @ 410-550-1933 or tdonohu1@jhmi.edu
