Outpatient Mental Health Programs in Atlanta

Many people believe that treatment for mental illness has to take place in a residential setting, and they don’t feel comfortable with the idea of leaving their homes for weeks at a time. Fortunately, our outpatient mental health care in Atlanta provides the perfect fit for a wide array of people. Valor Behavioral Health offers outpatient mental health rehab that elevates a person’s ability to heal themselves. Our skilled staff uses compassion to invite people to open up and talk about their emotions and experiences.

Inpatient Rehab vs Outpatient Rehab

When it comes to treatment available by outpatient for mental health in Atlanta vs. inpatient care, definite differences exist. Inpatient programs require the person to move into a facility usually for 30 days or longer. For many, this means taking a leave from a job or college and also takes them away from their families and personal responsibilities. This option works well for people whose mental health disorders are quite severe, but it isn’t the only choice available.

Outpatient rehab allows the individual to remain living in their homes and travel to a facility for their therapy sessions. Depending on which level of outpatient care a person chooses, this can leave time to still work or attend school, and take care of home and social activities. Outpatient rehab is more flexible in its time requirements, which allows people to balance their regular lives with getting the quality care they need. Many of the same evidence-based and holistic therapies offered in inpatient rehabs also come standard with outpatient programs. Therapists in both types of programs teach people to understand the triggers that impact their ability to stay sober and their mental health. The individual processes what they learn and learns to live a sober life and ease their symptoms of mental illness. 

Who is outpatient rehab a good fit for? Someone who has a stable home environment and has had an evaluation that shows outpatient care will suit their needs. The person either has already completed inpatient rehab or did not need it. While requiring treatment, their condition is not severe enough to warrant checking into a facility to receive round-the-clock care.

Schedule for our Outpatient Rehab Programs in Atlanta

We offer three levels of outpatient care, and each has its own schedule:

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): Sessions take place a minimum of six hours per day, five days per week.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): Sessions take place a few hours per day, several days per week. The exact amount of time will be determined upon admission.

Outpatient Program (OP): The lowest level of care typically includes attending individual therapy or another type of therapy that continues the lessons learned in higher levels of care. Sessions may be just one or two per week.

Which Outpatient Mental Health Program is Right For Me?

Determining which outpatient mental health rehab in Atlanta is right for you depends on a few factors. A person who has a stable home life that includes not being constantly exposed to triggering people or situations can do well with an outpatient program. If you need much of the structured care of an inpatient program without actually moving into a rehab program, PHP may be the right fit. It offers much of the same type of care and takes place several days per week.

Someone who doesn’t need as much treatment as PHP offers often does well in an IOP program. It requires fewer days of treatment and not as many hours per day, yet still provides valuable exposure to multiple types of therapy. For those who require the least amount of treatment, a regular OP plan can give them what they need. One or two appointments per week can continue to keep a person on the right path without taking up much of their time.
