Frequently Asked Questions

What is Intensive Outpatient Therapy?

Mountain States Health Alliance brings comprehensive mental health services to those in need. The Intensive Outpatient Program offers mental health and substance abuse services in a safe, confidential and professional manner.

Often, regular outpatient treatment is not enough. Intensive support and focused treatment may help an individual get back on track. We offer a combination of psychotherapy, family education, case management services, medication management (as needed) and group therapy.

The Intensive Outpatient Program is designed for individuals who are in need of therapy more frequently than that provided in traditional outpatient services, or for individuals transitioning out of inpatient care. Groups are provided three times per week and focus on practical skills. The therapist will develop a therapeutic plan in partnership with the patient.

Addiction Recovery provides treatment to individuals who have significant problems with alcohol, drugs or other addictions. The treatment philosophy embraces abstinence and the 12-Step Recovery Model. It also focuses on meeting the needs of individuals and family members through education and helps them develop healthy coping skills.

MSHA offers assistance to local employers, helping minimize losses from poor employee performance due to personal problems. EAP consultants develop effective programs for an employer’s individual needs by providing:

  • Confidential services to employees and immediate family members
  • Orientation and promotion of the EAP to management and employees
  • Training for management/supervisory personnel on how to effectively use the EAP

An EAP is one of the most important benefits a company can offer. It is an expenditure that more than pays for itself. For more information, call (423) 722-3000.

MSHA provides inpatient and outpatient services, as well as community education and consultation.
