Intensive Outpatient Program for Depression

Intensive Outpatient Program for Depression

Depression is a mental health disorder that commonly presents with feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a general lack of motivation or desire to engage with life in any meaningful sort of way.

Depressed people often find themselves simply going through the motions of day-to-day life without finding any joy. People who suffer from depression often describe themselves as feeling empty inside.

Depression can also have physical side effects, as it can affect sleep patterns and cause people to either suffer insomnia or oversleep.  It can also lead to changes in appetite.

Depressed people can also suffer from persistent fatigue even if they have a healthy diet and sleep patterns. Most troublingly, depression can lead to suicidal thoughts.

While feelings of sadness are characteristic of depression, being depressed isn’t the same as being sad. Depression is a mental health condition caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain.

Many people will experience a depressive episode in their lifetime, and many will not seek any mental health treatment because they may not recognize that they need help.

What is an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for Depression?

Many who suffer need treatment for depression will go to individual therapy, take medication, or a combination of both. Some people may need far more care than seeing their therapist once a week but don’t have the option of an inpatient program.

For those people, an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) may be the exact type of treatment that they need as opposed to traditional therapy.
