Outpatient Programs

Doctor consulting a patient about intensive outpatient therapy

Summit Behavioral Health has three locations that offer outpatient care: Princeton Junction, Union, and Florham Park, New Jersey. Many people who complete their residential program or clinical stabilization services may want to continue their care as they integrate back into daily life.

Outpatient care levels are based on how long a client will spend in treatment each week. Some individuals may find they don’t require intensive care and will choose an outpatient program instead of other levels of care. The only way to stay accountable and prevent relapse is to take advantage of the sophisticated care we offer.

Types of Outpatient Programs

  • Partial care: Partial care is a program that allows a client to reside at home but commute to the treatment center up to seven days a week. A partial care program focuses on the overall treatment of the client, and its objective is to reduce inpatient hospitalization. The typical length of a partial care program can vary on the individual but is typically around 30 days.
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP): An intensive outpatient program is a step down from higher levels of treatment, such as a residential program, which requires a longer facility stay. IOPs give clients more flexibility in their schedules as they work toward rejoining society full time. This form of treatment has been proven successful because it allows clients to tend to their commitments while they attend treatment at a facility at a time that works for them. Once their session ends, they can return home or to a sober living facility. The length of the program can vary from a few weeks to a year, but the minimum recommended duration is 90 days.
  • Outpatient Care: During our outpatient program, you will be able to participate in both group and individual therapy sessions in shorter intervals as you continue to step down in treatment. This level allows clients to practice what they’ve learned in treatment at home and outside of the facility.
