Compass Virtual’s OCD & Complex Anxiety Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Programs for adults ages 18 and older provide short-term, intensive treatment for individuals whose obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) or related symptoms significantly impair daily functioning.
These programs are grounded in daily exposure and response prevention therapy (ERP) to help individuals learn to tolerate, rather than get rid of, distressing thoughts or physical sensations and live out a meaningful, values-based life despite their anxiety.
In addition to ERP, our programs have a strong focus on acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) as well as skill building in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Participants are encouraged to practice working through anxiety in pursuit of their personal values. In doing so, highlighting the possibility of living a fulfilling life despite the presence of uncertainty or discomfort.
Compass’ multi-disciplinary team develops an individualized treatment plan that is informed by a diverse set of clinical experts and typically includes:
Our customized treatment plans are tailored to the needs of each individual and adapted as needed over the course of treatment. Program participants work with therapists who specialize in OCD, illness anxiety, panic disorder, social anxiety, and other anxiety disorders. The group therapy model provides the opportunity to connect with others, normalize experiences, and build group accountability. This individualized approach to treatment supports people in moving towards achieving a more meaningful and functional life.
The Echo Outpatient Program is open to individuals who have completed Compass’s PHP/IOP programs and are ready to transition to a lower level of care, as recommended by a Compass psychiatrist. This program allows patients to continue psychiatric medication management with their Compass psychiatrist and attend Compass-led outpatient group therapy sessions virtually in a familiar setting.
Currently to participate in Compass Virtual’s PHP/IOP programs you must be physically located in Illinois or Maryland at the time of each day of treatment.
Additional states are coming soon!
Nearly all individuals who try a PHP or IOP find it to be better than their expectations and find the level of engagement to be impactful.
