Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospital

We offer intensive outpatient and partial hospital programs at several of our community treatment centers.

Resources for Clients and Families

We realize you may have questions about mental illness, billing, privacy practices, visiting information at Spring Harbor Hospital and much more. You can find what you need on our resource pages.

We offer an effective and flexible Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) to help people recover from serious drug and alcohol addiction. We also can provide the Differential Substance Abuse Treatment (DSAT) model, recognized as effective by the court and corrections systems in Maine. DSAT has been the treatment required of all Adult Drug Courts in the state. We can also create a customized IOP based on client need.

Maine Medical Center, our sister hospital in Portland, provides partial-day services for adults who are too ill to attend traditional outpatient therapy, but do not require the 24-hour-a-day treatment of an inpatient psychiatric hospital. These programs are often used as a means of averting psychiatric hospitalization. Alternatively, the day programs help patients make a smoother transition back into the community following a psychiatric hospitalization.

These structured, partial-day programs feature two treatment tracks: one for adults who experience chronic and severe mental illness; and one for those who have co-occurring disorders.
