Outpatient Mental Health Treatment Program near Seattle

Living with a mental health or substance use disorder can be challenging. Cascade Behavioral Health offers a variety of outpatient treatment programs for adults age 18 and older who are struggling with mental illness and addiction. Our unique services allow us to provide personalized treatment that caters to your individual needs and delivers positive, long-term outcomes.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Overview

Our intensive outpatient program gives patients greater structure and more acute care than traditional outpatient therapy provides but is less intensive than our partial hospitalization program.

At our hospital in Tukwila, Washington, we offer two types of intensive outpatient programming:

  • Mental health IOP: We most commonly treat adults who are struggling with mental health concerns such as anxiety disorders, depression, mood disorders, relationship concerns, and grief and loss.
  • Substance use IOP: In this program, we treat adults who are struggling with addictions to substances such as heroin, cocaine, prescription drugs, and alcohol.

Depending on your needs, you can enter IOP either directly or after stepping up or down from a different level of care.

IOP allows you the freedom to work, attend school, or fulfill other obligations when treatment is not in session. You may participate in group, family, and experiential therapies. The schedule is as follows:

  • Mental health IOP: Five days per week, 9 a.m.-noon
  • Substance use IOP: Three days per week, mornings (9 a.m.-noon) or evenings (6-9 p.m.)

Typical length of stay in IOP at Cascade Behavioral Health Hospital is 21 to 30 days, though that may vary depending on your individual needs.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) Overview

Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) is an outpatient program that helps adults who are struggling with mental health symptoms. This is a more acute level of care than IOP that still provides more independence than inpatient or residential treatment.

In our PHP, you’ll participate in therapeutic programming for 5 1/2 hours per day, five days a week. Group therapy is the primary method of treatment in PHP, and with these sessions capped at 10 participants, you’ll have a chance to fully engage and participate. Our groups use a variety of interventions, including meditation exercises, wellness classes, and mindfulness therapy.

Depending on your specific needs, you may also participate in medication management consultation sessions with a staff psychiatrist, weekly individual therapy, and music therapy twice a week.

Most patients spend about 15 days in PHP at Cascade Behavioral Health, but that may vary depending on your individual needs.

Telehealth Overview

Due to distance, schedule concerns, medical complications, or other reasons, some patients are unable to participate in our IOP or PHP in person.

Telehealth programming provides a remote option for patients who are struggling with mental health disorders. Telehealth programming is available at both the IOP and PHP levels for mental health concerns and in the evening IOP sessions for substance use disorders, and allows patients to participate in the same group sessions as they would at our hospital in Tukwila, Washington — all from the comfort of home.

All telehealth programming is conducted by the same experienced professionals who run our in-person programming. If you have any questions about telehealth programming or your potential eligibility, please reach out to us at your convenience.

Success Is Possible

Every single person on this hospital's staff helped our family so passionately.
