A Strong Treatment Plan is Your Blueprint for Success
Nobody has it all figured out. The good news is that you don’t have to. When you come into our program, the main theme you need to focus on is “What do I want right now?”. At this moment in your life…what do you want to see improved?
There’s no right or wrong answer. And the answer may change right in the middle of treatment. That’s great. It means you’re growing. The important thing is to just keep moving forward.
From there, we take your stated goals and put them into a designated plan. This isn’t a “cookie cutter” type of treatment. It’s customized to your specific needs and wants. This “blueprint for treatment” is what the treatment team uses to guide you toward reaching a better place in your life.
IOP Treatment Plan Structure and Process
The plan itself is highly structured and divided up into parts. The first part is filled out by you upon admission into the program. The second part is filled out by the therapist and coordinator after collaboration with the psychiatrist (medical director).
The part you fill out is as follows:
- Your stated goals that we can help you achieve
- Problems you are facing (there will be options to circle)
- Your strengths, which will help you achieve your goals
- Barriers that you think might get in the way
You’ll attend your first week of group sessions and then have a psychosocial assessment (one-on-one) with the therapist. This will allow the therapist to get acquainted with you and determine where you’re at…and how to get you to where you want to go.
Treatment Team Meetings
The therapist will have the first treatment team meeting with the psychiatrist and care coordinator. They’ll fill out the second part of the treatment plan:
- Goals (could be from 1-3 goals)
- Objectives (steps to achieve the goal)
- Interventions (what the therapist needs to do)
They will have bi-weekly treatment team meetings to monitor your progress, assess needs, and change goals if needed. This will continue until goals are met and you are discharged from the program.
