Located in Edgewood, Kentucky, St. Elizabeth Edgewood Intensive Outpatient Programs are psychiatric treatment tracks designed for clients with addiction, mental illness or co-occurring disorders. These programs fall under the larger umbrella of St. Elizabeth Healthcare, a company which operates several full-service hospitals throughout the state.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a program, clients work with staff members to develop individualized treatment plans catered to their needs. Those in need of detox services can be referred to one of the organization’s nearby hospitals. Depending on their particular issues, participants can attend the facility’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) primarily for psychiatric issues, its dual diagnosis IOP or one of its less intensive outpatient tracks. Dual diagnosis programs are open to both adolescents and adults.
Though the specifics of each program vary, all feature individual and group therapy with evidence-based treatment practices including CBT and DBT. Medication management and case management services are also provided. IOP tracks meet for at least nine hours of group therapy a week in groups that never contain more than 10 people. Participants also attend a variable number of one-on-one sessions depending on the severity of their issues. Adults can choose to attend either morning or afternoon sessions but the adolescent IOP is an after-school program which meets three days a week. While 12-step participation is not strictly required, clients are encouraged to attend off-site meetings. The staff at St. Elizabeth Edgewood consists of physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, RNs, LMHCs, CSWs and LPCs.
In addition to the above, those in need of more intensive care services can also attend one of St. Elizabeth’s short-term inpatient programs as well. Other standalone services include psychological testing and a 24-hour suicide prevention hotline. Clients who complete a primary care regimen can also work with staff members to develop stepped down outpatient plans to serve as aftercare.
In all, St. Elizabeth Edgewood provides IOP options for adults and adolescents seeking treatment for mental illness and co-occurring disorders. All plans are individualized and rely primarily on a psychiatric approach rather than the 12 steps. Although the price of these programs may vary depending on the strength of each client’s insurance, St. Elizabeth Edgewood Intensive Outpatient Programs remain a strong resource worth considering.
