WHAT IS IOP?
Family Solutions Counseling provides an intensive outpatient program (IOP) to adults 18+ who have mental health concerns.

HOW DO I PAY FOR IOP?
Insurance and payment is the last step towards admission into IOP. We accept most private insurance and self pay. Insurance pre authorization will be required before you are able to start the program. Pre authorizations can sometimes take up to 48 hours not including holidays and weekends. Once we have all your insurance information we will work with your insurance company. Once they provide authorization they will also determine if there is any out of pocket cost to you. We will require you to sign an agreement of payment for any portion your insurance will not cover. Payment is due at time of service. Payment will still be billed regardless of you missing IOP.
WHAT IS THE COMMITMENT?
IOP is a 8 week commitment. It is expected that you are present for all groups and individual sessions. We encourage everyone to participate and be present as you will get the most out of the program to the extent that you are engaged. We understand life happens, please call ahead and let us know as soon as possible if you can make it to IOP one day.
WHAT ABOUT COVID-19?
We have limited group size to 10 individuals to ensure there will be adequate room between individuals. We will be sanitizing and will have hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies available. We strongly encourage masks at this time. We will be following city mandates and have made preparations as needed for the pandemic.
WILL I BE REQUIRED TO TAKE MEDICATION WHILE IN THE PROGRAM?
No, we do not require that you be taking medication while in IOP. We are partnered with Cache Ketamine and Mental Health and have this service available to you. We do believe that the use of Ketamine while in IOP will enhance your experience. Additional information about Cache Ketamine and Mental Health are available here.
