What is The Elliot’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?
The Elliot’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provide individual and group-based treatment of co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. PHP and IOP are for individuals who need care that is more intensive than individual outpatient programs but not as intensive as residential treatment.
Partial Hospitalization Program & Intensive Outpatient Program
All PHP and IOP staff are trained in co-occurring disorders treatment skills and appropriate evidence-based skills, such as Motivational Interviewing, Harm Reduction, and Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment. Depending on their role, staff can provide case coordination, assist participants in accessing community-based services, provide medication management, evaluate participants for medical issues, and more. The teams coordinate closely with primary care providers biweekly to ensure that all aspects of patients’ wellbeing and health are addressed appropriately.
At the beginning of the program, all participants are assessed with various standardized tools, such as AUDIT/DAST, PHQ 2 or 9, the Addiction Severity Index, the Columbia Suicide Risk Assessment, and the URICA (University of Rhode Island Change Assessment).
Personalized plans are then developed to address their substance use, mental health, and primary care needs, as well as the major social determinants of health, poverty, food scarcity, and access to reliable housing and transportation, among others.
Not only do participants receive intensive individual and group treatment, but strong aftercare and family components are also provided to ensure the continuity of care and the inclusion of family and support members in the treatment process.
Patients attend IOP on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for 12 sessions. PHP patients attend the program Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for four weeks.
Individuals can self-refer to PHP and IOP or get a referral from a provider or Doorway staff.
We provide individualized behavioral health services to meet the needs of our patients while also providing ease of collaboration with your Elliot primary care provider. This collaborative approach to behavioral health services ensures team-based and outcome-oriented care.
Substance Use Disorder Services
Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Services staff at The Elliot assess, treat, and support individuals with SUD who are in or seeking recovery. Our multidisciplinary team includes licensed mental health and substance use clinicians, psychiatric providers, RNs, case managers, and recovery support staff.
Maternal Opioid Misuse (MOM) Program
The MOM program is available to women who are currently pregnant and up to two years postpartum, have opioid misuse disorder, and who are eligible for Medicaid. By serving as an access point to these resources, the MOM program helps new and expecting mothers and their babies have good health during pregnancy and beyond.
