LGBT Therapy and IOP Questions
IOP is a higher treatment level for when regular outpatient visits with a psychiatrist or therapist aren’t enough. You need an intervention. This treatment is short-term — the goal is serious improvement in as short a time as possible. It works on an admission basis and occurs in a group setting led by a therapist.
The goal is to provide you with coping skills by facing the truth that life can be challenging, and the only thing that can be changed is your personal response to those challenges.
When you start IOP, you’ll develop personalized goals with the therapist…whatever those goals my be. We take those goals and put them into a personalized treatment plan, which we’ll follow for the duration of the program. That’s not to say that goals won’t change throughout — they can and do. And we’ll adapt with you to reach them.
If you are struggling with:
- Past Trauma
- Mood Disorder
- Personality Disorder
- Substance Use Disorder
- Gender Identity Issues
- Sexual Orientation
Then you may want to consider this treatment option to help you improve.
Group therapy dedicated specifically to the LGBTQ+ community ensures you are in a safe place with others (gay, lesbian, transgender, queer, etc.) who may have shared similar hardships and experiences as you. Things like acceptance and understanding…all universal human needs, but things that your community has gone without until very recently. In fact, it’s even still a problem today.
Sharing this understanding can create a bond where people lift each other up during their hardest times.
