Living with a mental health or substance use disorder can be challenging. Cascade Behavioral Health offers a variety of outpatient programs for adults age 18 and older who are struggling with mental illness and addiction. With outpatient services available at two locations, we provide personalized care that caters to your individual needs and delivers positive, long-term outcomes.
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) Overview
Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) gives patients greater structure and more acute care than traditional outpatient therapy provides but is less intensive than our partial hospitalization program.
We offer two types of intensive outpatient programming, which are both available at our main hospital campus and Connections – Bellevue:
- 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 our IOP either directly or from a different level of care.
The flexibility of our IOP allows you the freedom to work, attend school, or fulfill other obligations. During your time in this program, 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
- Main campus: evenings (6-9 p.m.)
- Connections – Bellevue (opening late September 2021): mornings (9 a.m.-noon) or evenings (6-9 p.m.)
Typical length of stay in our IOP is 21-30 days, though that may vary depending on your individual needs.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) Overview
Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) helps adults who are struggling with mental health symptoms. This is a more acute level of care than our 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 foundational to the care we provide in our 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.
We offer PHP services at our main hospital and our Connections – Bellevue (opening late September 2021) locations. Most patients spend about 15 days in our PHP, but actual length of program participation depends on your individual progress and goals.
Connections – Bellevue Overview
At Cascade Behavioral Health, we strive to make mental health and substance use treatment as accessible as possible. As part of those efforts, our Connections – Bellevue location (opening late September 2021) offers the same high-quality outpatient services you have come to expect from us.
This location serves adults age 18 and older who are struggling with mental health and substance use disorders. We offer a comprehensive range of outpatient programming that includes:
- Mental health intensive outpatient program (IOP)
- Substance use intensive outpatient program (IOP)
- Mental health partial hospitalization program (PHP)
- Substance use traditional outpatient therapy
Like all the care we provide at Cascade Behavioral Health, the programming at Connections – Bellevue is highly personalized to each individual. You will complete a detailed assessment before starting treatment, which will allow us to custom-build a care plan that meets your specific needs.
Connections – Bellevue is conveniently located less than 20 miles north of our main campus across Interstate 90. For more information about the leading-edge outpatient programming we provide at this location, please contact:

Due to distance, schedule concerns, medical complications, or other reasons, some patients are unable to participate in our outpatient services in person.
Telehealth programming provides a remote option for patients who are struggling with mental health or substance use disorders. Telehealth programming is available at both the IOP and PHP levels for mental health concerns and in the IOP sessions for substance use disorders and allows patients to participate in the same group sessions as they would at either of our locations — 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.
