Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) are used to address mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety, addictions, and the impact of trauma.
IOP work enables patients to continue with their normal, day-to-day lives in a way that residential treatment programs do not. Whereas residential treatment requires that people reside on site, people attending Intensive Outpatient Programs live at home or go back to a hotel or Airbnb at night and are not in a controlled environment. IOP work is designed to create a longer period of assessment, to establish understanding and support mechanisms, help with stress and symptom management, and teach skills.
IOP Program at PPG
PPG providers deliver a unique and entirely customized experience for each of our patients. No two IOPs look the same at PPG – we do not follow a book or manual, we work with individuals (and at times with families) to assess need, solve complex problems, and accelerate healing. By utilizing the expertise of several providers in each customized IOP, we can evaluate complex issues and deploy different therapy modalities to help with healing in the realms of thought patterns, emotions, behaviors, and symptoms. A usual course of IOP work is two weeks, but each program duration is determined based upon the patient’s needs.
There are seven dimensions that we bring to each of our IOP experiences:
- Assessment and diagnosis
- Medication management towards central nervous system regulation
- Creating trust, safety, and grounding in the mind and the body
- Therapy work including elements of Narrative Integration, Psychodynamic Inquiry, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness Training, and Emotional Regulation Skills
- Somatic (body) healing work
- Family of origin work, including creation of family constellations, exploring attachment styles, and systemic family therapy
- Exploring values, personal vision, purpose, and best self – creating a new sense of self and of forward movement towards the future
What Clients and Patients are Saying
Dr. Maylie is the best. I have been seeing her for many years. This office cares about you. You're not just another patient. She truly takes her time to talk to me and address my concerns. I can’t even express how thankful I am to have her as my doctor. This is a cash basis only establishment, however with my insurance I mail the receipt and receive a portion back. The office staff is top notch as well. I am truly happy with the practice here.
There are not enough kind words to describe this place and the people who provide care here and well as the support staff. I have been truly blessed to have been treated at this facility and especially by Dr. Paul Conti. Since the very first time I walked into Dr. Conti's office I knew he was different. He listened to ME and what I wanted for myself….. This place saved my life and it will save yours too! Trust me there is no need to call anyone else or try any other facility. The people here are truly here for you and they will make sure that you never feel ashamed or broken ever again! I would recommend this clinic to anyone seeking mental health and/or recovery from drugs and alcohol.
Dr. Conti brings to his practice a distinguished educational background and ongoing familiarity with relevant contemporary scholarship. He is genuinely interested in understanding challenging psychiatric problems, innovative in treatment strategies, and totally committed to improving patient well-being. Personally, Dr. Conti is good company, attentive to patient needs, and encouraging throughout. Beyond his exceptional technical skills Dr. Conti enjoys helping, in being a partner with his patients on the path to improved health.
Dr. Conti has been my doctor for a number of years. I find him to be kind, compassionate, and truly excellent. He routinely goes above and beyond. Dr. Conti is always courteous, very professional, and offers thoughtful and creative support for my journey of healing.
I have been a patient of Dr. Conti off and on for the last 10 years and I have nothing but respect and appreciation for what he does and his care for his patients. He has always gone above and beyond to meet my medical needs.
Katy is an absolutely outstanding psychiatric nurse practitioner. She is extremely knowledgeable about medication, very empathetic and insightful, excellent at talking through problems/issues/crises, notably responsive and accessible, and so easy to talk to. She has helped me immensely with chronic and acute problems. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Extremely knowledgeable, accessible, relatable, professional, responsible, thoughtful, helpful provider. He and his group have seen me through a few serious crises and have greatly helped me improve with chronic conditions. Super responsive and caring. Worked with my family members as well. Involved me heavily in decisionmaking process. First doc I’ve had who’s treated psychiatry like a medical science. Cannot recommend highly enough!!! Thank you Doctor!!!
Dr. Conti is like no other. Prior to my time with him I had spent years in fruitless therapy. To say his approach is unique would be an understatement. He is a master craftsman focused on concretely fixing your problems rather than maximizing billable hours. I consider our time together to be absolutely life changing and could not have made nearly the same progress without him. If you’re lucky enough to be under his career don’t hesitate for a second.
