Outpatient Services

Outpatient psychiatric and dual diagnosis (both substance use and mental health issues) treatment is provided through full-day partial hospitalization programs and half-day intensive outpatient programs, and is designed for patients who are experiencing moderately severe symptoms that do not require inpatient hospitalization.

Patients appropriate for these outpatient levels of care demonstrate reliable medication compliance, the ability to maintain home, work or school commitments and have support from their home and other social environments.

Patients who do not require the structure of 24-hour care may be admitted to an outpatient program as their point of entry for treatment or as a progression to a less restrictive level of care following a stay on an inpatient hospital unit. Outpatient levels of care include Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP).

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Signature’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides half-day or evening programming during which many patients can continue with daily responsibilities.
Patients in this level of care have substantial family and environmental support in working toward continuing improvement and successful management of their disorders. Signature offers intensive outpatient programs for adults and adolescents.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Signature’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers adult patients full days of behavioral health treatment in a less restrictive environment that does not require an overnight stay.

Patients appropriate for this level of care have adequate family or environmental support, have reduced the crisis level in their lives and may utilize the program as either a “step-down” following acute inpatient care or as the point of entry for new admissions.


Throughout treatment, the psychiatrist and the primary therapist will develop an individualized treatment plan and oversee the patient’s progress.
