These programs are for individuals who need continued mental and behavioral treatment but do not require the intensive 24-hour care provided by inpatient treatment programs.

Partial Hospitalization Program (Adults)

  • Focused treatment for depression, anxiety and other mood disorders
  • Mental and Behavioral health evaluations and monitoring of medication by a physician
  • Five Intensive Group Therapy Sessions Daily – Monday through Friday
  • Individualized treatment by our dedicated treatment team staff
  • A balanced lunch provided daily.
  • A supportive environment, teaching life enrichment skills.
  • Strengthening positive coping skills that will assist individuals in overcoming the challenges of life

Intensive Outpatient Program

Adult and Adolescent (age 13- to 17-years-old)

Gulfport Behavioral’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a part-time (9 to 10 hours per week) program that provides patients with supportive treatment as they work to re-engage their life. Many patients step down from an inpatient setting or a Partial program (full-time outpatient) to an IOP as a way to slowly test coping techniques learned.

Gulfport Behavioral’s IOP include therapies such as:

  • Focused treatment for depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders
  • Mental and Behavioral evaluations and monitoring of medication by a physician
  • Individualized treatment by our dedicated treatment team
  • Teaching life enrichment skills and coping skills in a supportive environment

Our sessions for group therapy in Gulfport, MS are structured in half days so that participants have the option of balancing their work schedules and day-to-day activities, which provides the ability to return to the group each day with new challenges to the process.

Assistance with FMLA and Short Term Disability paperwork is available if you are unable to work currently due to your condition.

Outpatient programs can serve as transitions from or alternatives to inpatient treatment. The level of care recommend to an individual is determined by the results of a no-cost, confidential assessment. Gulfport Behavioral’s outpatient programs are geared toward adults and in some instances adolescents.

We proudly offer all our programs to active military members and their families through TRICARE®.
