Intensive Outpatient Program for Anxiety

Intensive Outpatient Program for Anxiety

Anxiety is a feeling of worry. It’s when you’re afraid that something bad will happen or something is about to go wrong.

Some people feel it when they go in for medical procedures; some people feel anxious when they fly or travel, or do something new. It’s a perfectly natural emotion that every human being is going to feel at some point in their lives.

But as normal as anxiety is, it’s supposed to be a temporary emotion. It’s not supposed to persist, and it’s not supposed to be prevalent. It’s supposed to come in short bursts, not for long stretches of time. Anxiety is supposed to be momentary and not someone’s natural state of being.

All too often, people suffer from a variety of mental health disorders that can cause them to be anxious. For some people, they have social anxiety and have trouble navigating social situations.

Other people have phobias, and being exposed – or potentially exposed – to the object of their phobia makes them anxious. Then there are people who suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) who worry about everything and cannot control that they worry about everything.

What is an IOP

People who experience anxiety cope with it in a variety of ways. Some people use prescription medication and therapy to deal with their anxiety disorders. Those who have situational anxiety, such as nervous flyers, develop coping mechanisms to distract themselves. 

Some people suffer from anxiety so much that their treatment program may require a level of care that medication as a weekly individual therapy session can’t provide. Many people check into an inpatient program to receive intensive treatment for their anxiety.

But not everyone can check into an inpatient facility and be away from home, work, or school for days or weeks on end. People have responsibilities and can’t just pause their lives to get the help they need at a treatment center.

Outpatient treatment offers people a high level of care while also allowing them to continue their lives. An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a flexible treatment plan that gives people who need flexibility the option of receiving care.
