Emerald Coast offers Intensive Outpatient Programming (IOP), Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Half Day PHP at the Emerald Coast Behavioral Outpatient Center in Panama City as well as our Okaloosa Outpatient Center in Fort Walton Beach and Blue Springs Outpatient Center in Marianna.
Our outpatient programs are for patients who do not need the structure or security of an inpatient setting but require a level of care beyond traditional outpatient services. These programs include:
IOP/Half Day PHP groups meet three to five days a week for three hours each session. PHP groups meet five days a week for six hours each session. Length of treatment in the program will depend on the client’s specific needs.
Each client will have an individualized treatment plan to meet their needs and address their goals to prepare them for a successful step-down to less restrictive care.
Programming is adjusted to facilitate client growth through medication management, individual
and family sessions and group therapy, while emphasizing the development of coping mechanisms to create the best opportunity for relapse prevention.
Emerald Coast Behavioral Hospital can help provide intervention, identify the appropriate level of care, conduct free assessments and make referrals when necessary.
Our outpatient specialists are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 850-481-0306.
Emergency assessments are available 24 hours every day for inpatient services. To arrange a confidential assessment at no cost, call 850-763-0017 and ask to speak with an assessment and referral counselor.
