Exploring Options Beyond Outpatient Psychiatry?

Welcome to Compass Health Center. While our expertise includes Outpatient Psychiatry, we are currently directing new inquiries toward our comprehensive, specialized mental health programs. Our intake team, consisting of skilled and compassionate professionals, is dedicated to guiding you or your loved ones in finding the most suitable care. We understand that everyone’s journey is unique, and our in-person and virtual mental health programs are designed to meet a diverse range of treatment needs and goals. At this time, our Outpatient Psychiatry department is not accepting new patients. We partner with outpatient psychiatrists, and if Compass Health Center programming is not right for you, we can still be utilized as a resource to find the right support. We invite you to explore more about our services, as well as specialties, below.

What are PHP and IOP? - Compass Health Center

What are PHP and IOP?

Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP):

Compass Health Center’s Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) offer immediate support for individuals struggling with symptoms requiring more comprehensive treatment than available in traditional outpatient therapy. Our PHP delivers evidence-based, multi-disciplinary treatment including group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, specialty services, skill development, and medication management—all conveniently available in one location, whether in-person or virtually. Operating Monday to Friday, our PHP provides a safe, engaging and structured environment. Individuals either return home or log off after each day’s treatment. PHP is recommended for those struggling with managing daily life stressors, being present in routine aspects of life, and unable to attend work or school consistently.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP):

Compass’s Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) offer short-term stabilization for individuals transitioning from PHP or facing challenges in traditional outpatient treatment. Our goal is to keep individuals involved in their daily routines while providing an intensive level of multi-disciplinary treatment. IOP is suitable for those whose mental health is a barrier to living their lives to the fullest and who struggle with managing life stressors but are still able to attend work, school, or maintain structure during the day. The program, offered Monday through Friday during daytime or evening hours, allows participants to determine a schedule with their treatment team.

Our Success Stories

Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

Compass saved my life! I came into Compass with suicidal ideations and no hope. After a couple of weeks of being in the program, I did not have those thoughts anymore. Compass helped me change my mindset, from a negative pattern of thoughts to a more positive and optimistic frame of mind.

Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

My child is leaving Compass more equipped to handle her emotions, her anxiety, her depression, and the things that all trigger these. She is willing to use the skills, which is a huge change, and this is all due to how well Compass worked for her.

I liked how in Compass, everyone was respectful of my opinions, pronouns, and preferred name. There was no judging, and you can open up to people. I also like how I can relate to other kids. I also really appreciate learning new skills.

Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

Compass is a godsend. An amazing program for children who are struggling and families who are seeking help and guidance. I could not imagine that she would be so much better in less than 2 months. I wish we could have found Compass without going to the ER. Thanks for all you do!
