Utilizing an innovative, multidisciplinary team approach, we offer comprehensive assessment and intensive treatment tailored to the needs of each patient.
1. Heliotrope Individualized Integrative Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Heliotrope offers truly individualized mental healthcare through a unique multidisciplinary combination of integrative psychiatry, functional medicine, qEEG- guided neurofeedback, psychotherapy, coaching and more. While each patient’s treatment plan varies, participants generally engage in five individual therapeutic contacts per week and are with us for 3-6 months. Heliotrope primarily serves motivated patients seeking a higher level of care than traditional outpatient treatment can provide; those seeking a supportive aftercare option following inpatient or residential care; and patients who may receive benefit from working one-on-one with members of a coordinated treatment team. Many of our providers are dually licensed to treat mental health and substance use disorder conditions and have years of experience working with the interplay of complex trauma, addiction and mental health concerns. 2. Heartwood Integrative Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Heartwood delivers a holistic and diverse treatment strategy aimed at tackling a range of mental health issues, particularly those influenced by or originating from traumatic events. With a focus on promoting mental wellness, enhancing coping skills, and fostering sustainable recovery, our IOP supports individuals grappling with various mental health conditions. This program is tailored to offer concentrated and organized mental health support for individuals needing more extensive care than standard outpatient therapy but not requiring the intensity of inpatient treatment. Our program seamlessly integrates psychiatry, functional medicine, psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, individual and group psychotherapy, family involvement, case management, and WRAP planning, offering individuals a comprehensive and evidence-based journey towards healing and recovery. We are currently working towards CARF accreditation which will allow us to accept insurance.
