Intensive Outpatient Program in Austin, TX

Austin Intensive Outpatient Treatment

The Timothy Center’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offers comprehensive outpatient mental health care for teens, adults and spouses, who don’t require a 24-hour care program, but require greater therapeutic support than individual sessions can achieve. Our IOP program consists of 10 hours per week, with 9 hours of group therapy and 1 hour of individual.

Our day program applies the skills and training used in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to treat a wide range of mental health concerns, such as:

  • Depression
  • Mood Disorders
  • Addiction/Substance Abuse
  • Stress and Anxiety Disorders
  • Self-Destructive/Suicidal Behaviors

This is just a sample of issues that can be treated with our IOP treatment program. Our group and individual therapy sessions are conducted at either our North Austin or South Austin locations. Whenever you need us, we’re not far away.

We use DBT therapy techniques in a group and individual setting to help identify and change negative thinking patterns. This will help give the gentle push to make positive behavioral changes. For our teen IOP patients, we also utilize parental coaching.

Benefits of Our Intensive Outpatient Program

Our Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to help teens and adults struggling with challenges of a mental health diagnosis to overcome their depression, anxiety, or other issues.

Our compassionate, experienced counselors are here to help you get the most out of IOP. By the end of the program you will have the skills to lead a better, more purposeful life. Skills such as:

  • Identifying triggers and stressors
  • Understanding mental illness and how it affects our lives
  • Developing healthy boundaries
  • Effective communication skills
  • Developing distress tolerance skills
  • Countering negative thoughts
  • Safety crisis planning


Intensive outpatient therapy provides a supportive, encouraging environment while teaching life enrichment skills. Our participants are encouraged to practice the skills they learned in therapy in their everyday lives, both at home and in the community. Our Intensive Outpatient Program helps empower our patients to happy, healthy, and successful lives.
