Women’s Issues Intensive Outpatient Program
It is no secret that women have always carried a heavy load through life. Until the last half century, the trials and tribulations facing women have gone largely unnoted and unresolved. Because of that, many women have been silently struggling with the long-term effects of abuse, neglect, sexual trauma, stress, eating issues, and family issues alone.
The Women’s Issues Intensive Outpatient Program at Grace Counseling Center wants to change that. For so long, women have gone without voices, but at Grace, women are encouraged to work through their struggles in a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment.
Why Grace Counseling?
It’s true that every woman who walks through our doors has individual needs, many of which stem from the unique circumstances in which these individuals originally developed their traumas or struggles. Research has proven again and again that women respond tremendously to gender-specific healing programs that are not influenced by male energies.
Consider this example of a unique recovery need that many women share: According to research, women are more often the victims of physical and sexual assaults; in turn, these assaults can result in post-traumatic stress, anxiety, and other similar disorders. If left untreated, these disorders can prompt women to begin using unhealthy behavior patterns as a means of alleviating their emotional distress.
For this reason, it’s common for women suffering from these issues to have been victims of abuse in the past. Consequently, treating the lingering emotional effects of past trauma and abuse is of the utmost priority to Grace Counseling. Healing the past can heal the future.
At Grace Counseling, our women’s issues intensive outpatient program has been specially designed to ensure that women suffering from any variety of issues receive the treatments they need to achieve long-lasting healing.
In particular, our program emphasizes personal empowerment while offering optional treatments for traumatic physical and/or sexual abuse. The idea is to provide our female patients with the tools necessary to sustain their healthy lifestyle and mental state once they’ve completed our program and returned home.
What is the IOP Program?
The Women’s Issues program at Grace Counseling is specifically focused on and designed around meeting the many deep and unique needs that women today face, in a gender-specific environment.
Women who participate in the Women’s Issues IOP program find healing through a combination of therapeutic programs such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Individual and Group Therapy, and those featured in the Women’s Integrated treatment program, such as:
- Linking trauma to unhealthy relationship patterns, codependent behaviors, isolation, and physical health.
- Supporting mothers who are struggling with any of the above-mentioned issues
- Discovering individual strengths and encouraging support
Research has shown that many women who struggle with mental, behavioral, or traumatic experiences can begin to isolate themselves from their community and their lives. Many women struggle with embracing healthy and positive female relationships, so the IOP program is an empowering and supportive environment where women can learn to trust others in their communities, and how to reach out for help.
For millions of people around the country, these struggles are often affiliated with the family, whether it be postpartum depression, domestic assault, abandonment issues, or even just disagreements or hostility among family members. Grace Counseling provides women who attend the Women’s Issues IOP with the opportunity to participate in Family Counseling.
Many women who walk through our doors are mothers with children of all ages. The family counseling option allows both mother and children to heal through:
- Learning healthy forms of communication
- Working through trauma, upset, financial strain, divorce, neglect, etc.
- Providing meaningful support and creating healthy family values
- Working as a team in the home to create a positive environment for everyone
- Perspective building for both child and mother
The Family Counseling team at Grace Counseling are professionals with years of experience working through any and all sort of domestic or parental struggles and will ensure a safe and supportive environment for those who participate.
The Benefits of an Intensive Outpatient Program
While there are benefits to every type of rehabilitation treatment program, intensive outpatient care appeals to arguably the broadest range of preferences and needs.
For many, the possibility of attending a 30-90 day inpatient program is out of the question. However, intensive outpatient care gives these individuals the opportunity to benefit from a more intensive curriculum while still having the opportunity to work through their issues while continuing to live in their own homes, as well as meeting their professional responsibilities.
In other words, intensive outpatient treatment programs ensure that individuals don’t have to quit their jobs or abandon their families to complete their process of growth and healing in treatment.
Compared to standard outpatient care, one of the major benefits to intensive outpatient treatment is the sheer variety of treatments that are offered and available. Individuals in standard outpatient care tend to receive only a minimal amount of treatment, most of which takes the form of group therapy sessions.
By comparison, an intensive outpatient program gives patients more time to spend in individual or one-on-one “talk therapy” counseling sessions, meaning that more time is spent gaining a better understanding of the individual’s struggles as well as developing strategies for sustaining long-term health and recovery.
Your future can start now, you can choose to stay stuck where you are, or to get help in a supporting, healing, and nurturing community.
