When you think about therapy, you probably think about meeting with a therapist once per week either virtually through video-camera or sitting in a therapist’s office – this is known as outpatient therapy, typically the most sought out type of therapy. But what happens when one hour a week of outpatient therapy isn’t enough support? What if you or your loved ones continue to have challenges despite meeting weekly with a therapist, and the symptoms experienced increase in frequency and/or severity? This can feel overwhelming and exacerbate a sense of hopelessness. Many families navigating behavioral health treatment options for the first time believe there is no option in between weekly visits to a therapist, assessment by a doctor at the Emergency Room or admission to an inpatient facility.
Similarly, families often struggle to find one tier lower of care following release from an inpatient facility or hospital that provides more intensive care than meeting once a week with a therapist. Moving from the highly structured, everyday support and guidance of an inpatient program, to outpatient therapy once per week might feel like a drastic change and lacks a middle ground to provide the level of support you or loved ones require to ensure a successful transition.
