Intensive Outpatient Program
The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a full-spectrum, three-week treatment program that connects veterans to individualized care for trauma-based disorders and injury.
As a member of Warrior Care Network™ (WCN), the Road Home Program at Rush has assembled a team of nationally recognized experts trained in military culture and skilled in the evaluation and treatment of trauma-based disorders and injury.
Major goals of the Intensive Outpatient Program include:
- Reducing the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) – primarily through group and individual psychotherapy.
- Promoting general health and wellness – through a daily regimen of physical fitness, stress reduction training and wellness practices.
- Providing specialized care to those experiencing the effects of military sexual trauma (MST), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and other conditions affecting veterans.
Frequently Asked Questions About The Intensive Outpatient Program
Veterans are also welcome to self-refer but must show they need help with PTSD, MST, TBI, and/or other conditions affecting veterans.
During our screening process, an intake clinician will work with the veteran to determine if the IOP is a good fit for his or her current treatment preferences and needs. A diagnosis of PTSD and clinical appropriateness will need to be confirmed through the intake process before the veteran can become eligible.
