Options BHS Outpatient Services are group therapy programs that address a variety of problems that may interfere with a person's ability to function at school, work or home. Mental health conditions are characterized by alterations in mood, behavior, or thinking and associated with distress and impaired functioning. Early intervention is needed before it becomes potentially life altering. Addictive diseases can also cause significant life consequences.
Options BHS created an environment to help improve personal health, well-being and quality of life for patients. These programs can help a person transition back to their daily schedule and function at a higher level in daily living. Patients may be directly admitted to the program or transition from inpatient hospitalization.
These programs are designed for patients that need more support and structure than outpatient therapy services and do not need inpatient hospitalization services.
