Tampa’s Top PHP & IOP Mental Health & Drug Addiction Treatment Programs

North Tampa’s outpatient programs give individuals who are struggling with mental disorders or substance abuse problems the opportunity to continue working toward their recovery goals, while having the ongoing support of a structured treatment setting that is less intensive than inpatient programs. By participating in outpatient programming, individuals have the ability to slowly transition back into their home environments, while still benefitting from education, support, and encouragement through different therapeutic interventions.

At North Tampa Behavioral Health, we offer three types of outpatient programming, a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and two intensive outpatient program (IOP) options which have an initial evaluation and weekly follow up by a psychiatrist or psychiatric Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP). These outpatient programming options are discussed below.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Our leading partial hospitalization program (PHP) in Tampa meets five days per week, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. While taking part in our partial hospitalization program, clients are able to engage in the following services:

  • Medication management: Depending on the particular needs of each individual, certain medications may be implemented as part of his or her outpatient programming. When such is the case, individuals have the ability to meet with a psychiatrist for ongoing medication management services in order to ensure that the medications that they have been prescribed are working effectively and to make any changes that may be necessary.
  • Individual therapy: Individual therapy sessions provide clients with an opportunity to meet one-on-one with our psychiatrist in a confidential setting where they can discuss their treatment progress or process through any concerns that they may have.
  • Group therapy: Group therapy in our outpatient program offers clients the chance to come together with their peers in a safe environment where they can give and receive support to and from one another. These sessions can also be an optimal place for clients to gain education on various aspects of mental illness, chemical dependency, and different facets of treatment.
  • Recreational activities: Offered in a supportive and therapeutic setting, recreational activities can be a wonderful complement to traditional treatment modalities, helping clients to work toward optimal recovery.

Lunch is available to PHP participants, and transportation can be arranged if needed.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) meets three mornings each week, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 9 a.m. until noon. While taking part in our intensive outpatient program, clients are offered the following services:

  • Mental health-focused group therapy
  • Ability to work toward recovery goals while maintaining one’s current lifestyle and being able to meet daily commitments
  • If medication management services are necessary, IOP staff can assist in coordinating care

Transportation can also be arranged for clients when necessary.

Evening Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program

Our evening substance abuse intensive outpatient program (IOP) meets three evenings each week, on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday, from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. While taking part in our evening substance abuse IOP, clients are offered the following services:

  • Assistance with achieving substance abuse & drug addiction treatment goals
  • Therapeutic group setting that will help clients maintain daily responsibilities while engaging in the treatment necessary to optimize recovery
  • If medication management services are necessary, IOP staff can assist in coordinating care

The partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs at North Tampa Behavioral Health are designed to meet the needs of our clients in the ways that will be most beneficial in helping them to successfully achieve their recovery goals.
