Outpatient Psychiatric Program: Adults

Outpatient psychiatric treatment is a less restrictive level of care. It allows individuals to seek treatment for mental health issues while allowing them to maintain their commitments to family and work. Those in recovery who have completed an inpatient program often continue treatment on an outpatient basis.
