Outpatient Programs

Montevista Hospital’s outpatient programs offer two levels of outcome based treatment which provides an effective, continuity of care for youth, adults and seniors through our Partial Hospitalization Program and our Intensive Outpatient Program.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

The Partial Hospitalization Program is designed for adults with primary psychiatric disorders who require intensive support and structure but not 24-hour inpatient care. Clients attend PHP five days per week for six hours a day. They can return home in the evening and attend treatment at our facility during the day.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

The Intensive Outpatient Program provides further stabilization in a therapeutic environment for clients who do not require the structure of a full day program like our PHP. Clients attend IOP three hours a day. This allows clients greater flexibility to manage other commitments with their families, with work or with other treatment professionals.

Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)

We offer Electroconvulsive Therapy on both an outpatient and inpatient basis for adults 18 years and older. ECT is a highly effective treatment option for those suffering with severe depression, mania and catatonia. A specialized assessment in required for this treatment, which is performed under general anesthesia by an anesthesiologist and a psychiatrist.
