Visions Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program

Vermilion’s Visions intensive outpatient program in Lafayette, Louisiana, offers comprehensive outpatient care for adults who can benefit from structured services but do not need round-the-clock behavioral health treatment. Serving adults age 18 and older, our Visions outpatient program can help people find true and lasting healing.

Adult Intensive Outpatient Treatment in Lafayette

People who participate in Vermilion’s Visions intensive outpatient program (IOP) have access to comprehensive, structured treatment services while being able to return home after programming. This is a great alternative for inpatient treatment, or it can serve as a step-down level of care once a person’s time in inpatient treatment has come to an end. 

Our Lafayette IOP is designed to offer treatment services that can benefit people who are suffering from the following conditions: 

  • Depression 
  • Anxiety 
  • Bipolar disorder 
  • Personality disorders 
  • Substance use disorders 

The goal of offering this intensive outpatient program in Lafayette is to help patients gain an understanding of the mental health and addiction concerns they’re struggling with and to assist them in identifying healthy ways to cope. We also hope to help patients achieve independence and improve their overall quality of life.  

Patients in our Lafayette, Louisiana, intensive outpatient program typically remain in treatment for six to eight weeks. However, the actual amount of time they spend in programming is determined based on their individual needs and treatment goals.

Therapies Used in Our Visions IOP

At Vermilion Behavioral Health in Lafayette, Louisiana, we believe in the importance of offering a variety of therapies so that we can meet patients where they are on their healing journeys. 

Patients who receive care in our outpatient behavioral health treatment program may have the following services incorporated into their individualized treatment plans: 

  • Medication management services – Medication management services are provided for patients who are taking medication as part of their overall treatment plan. Psychiatric nurse practitioners administer medications two to three times per week depending on a person’s needs. 
  • Individual therapy – Members of our social services team offer individual therapy once a month or on an as-needed basis. These sessions provide patients with an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a qualified professional to address any concerns they have, celebrate successes, or discuss their treatment progress. 
  • Group therapy – Group psychotherapy sessions are offered daily and led by our social services and nursing staff. Group discussions may cover a variety of topics, including coping skills, relapse prevention, medication education, anger management, trauma, triggers, and warning signs. 
  • Family therapy – Family therapy sessions are offered on an as-needed basis and led by members of our social services team. 

Additionally, our nursing staff can provide basic medical care, and patients also have the ability to receive on-site medical detox services before beginning outpatient treatment if needed.
