Older Adults Outpatient Treatment Program

Older Adults Outpatient Treatment Program

Senior Outpatient Program

Outpatient care is individualized, planned just for you. Psychiatrists, licensed therapists and registered nurses will all work together on your care team. You’ll see a psychiatrist weekly to help you manage medications and make real progress. Our comprehensive discharge planning will smooth your path to the next level of care.

Outpatient treatment programs at El Paso Behavioral Health System offers a level of care for patients in need of an intensive, structured, daily therapeutic environment without the 24-hour care of inpatient treatment. Our outpatient program for senior adults helps patients progress in their recovery after an inpatient stay, or can prevent the initial need for inpatient treatment. 

Our geriatric behavioral health outpatient programs promote physical, social, cognitive, behavioral, and emotional development in older adults. Patients receive a combination of group counseling, family, and individual therapy, a psychiatric evaluation, medication management, and treatment planning. Our senior outpatient program can be helpful to older people struggling with mood disorders, drug or alcohol use or other behavioral health challenges.

Outpatient care may consist of partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient treatment. A Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a less intensive level of care than an inpatient program, while still allowing for a high degree of structure in treatment. Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) treatment is a step-down in intensity from PHP, allowing the patient to return to their home and community settings between therapy sessions.

This bilingual program is for seniors facing stress, depression or anxiety. We help them regain coping skills and the highest level of autonomy possible. We also focus on a comprehensive aftercare plan.

  • Intensive treatment without needing 24-hour care
