About the Program
The mental health Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at University of Maryland Harford Memorial Hospital (UM HMH) is a structured, group therapy program for adults who are experiencing mental health issues that interfere with social, occupational or interpersonal functioning. The program is short term and individuals usually attend 3 days per week (M-F) for 3 hours. The length of stay in the program will vary for each person.
 
Group therapy provides an opportunity to explore how you understand yourself and others. You will learn that you are not alone in your life experiences.
 
Our goal is to offer you the treatment you need and to have you actively participate in your treatment outcomes. You will receive personalized care from a highly qualified Behavioral Health team and receive treatment and medication management by a psychiatrist.
 
How to Refer
Referrals can come from hospitals, community providers or the individual. To make a referral,
please call 443-843-8800.
 
Admission Process
Intensive Outpatient Programs have regulated admission criteria. We will evaluate if IOP is the best fit for you. An individual who meets admission criteria, is motivated to change, and can interact well in a group setting will benefit the most from IOP. If you do not meet admission criteria, our IOP staff will work to provide you with referrals/resources.
 
Thank you for considering the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at UM HMH. We look forward to hearing from you and hope you can join us on the journey of growth and healing.
