Outpatient Mental Health and IOP Addiction Treatment

Regions Behavioral Health Hospital in Baton Rouge.

Ready to Reset

Regions Behavioral Health staff is committed to helping our patients establish healthy daily habits by replacing destructive patterns of behavior with patterns and beliefs that can help them reclaim the life they deserve. Though every patient is different, their dignity matters. At every level, Regions’ staff is committed to honoring our patients’ dignity with compassionate and professional care. 

Individual Therapy

Individual outpatient therapy sessions with licensed therapists or counselors are available to address a variety of mental health issues. Our therapists use different therapeutic approaches tailored to each patient’s needs. These approaches include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which helps patients identify and change negative thought patterns; dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), which focuses on emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness; psychodynamic therapy, which explores the influence of past experiences on present behavior; and other evidence-based practices. Our goal is to provide flexible, personalized support to help patients achieve their mental health goals.

Group Therapy

Outpatient group therapy sessions bring together individuals with similar mental health concerns to discuss their experiences, share coping strategies, and receive support from both peers and trained therapists. These sessions foster a sense of community and belonging, which can be incredibly therapeutic. Participants can gain new perspectives on their issues, learn from others’ experiences, and develop stronger coping mechanisms. Our group therapy options cover a wide range of topics, including anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, and substance use.

Medication Management

Regions’ psychiatrist, Dr. Khan, and medical professionals can prescribe and monitor medications to manage psychiatric symptoms. We work closely with individuals in our IOP to find the most effective medication regimen and adjust it as needed. Our team ensures that medication management is part of a comprehensive treatment plan, which may also include therapy and other interventions. We prioritize patient safety and well-being, providing regular  appointments to monitor progress and address any concerns.

Substance Abuse Treatment

Regions Behavioral Health Hospital’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for substance abuse offers expert care and comprehensive clinical services designed to support individuals in their journey towards recovery. Our IOP makes addiction rehabilitation services more accessible and convenient, catering to a wider range of individuals who need flexible treatment options that fit into their daily lives.

Psychosocial Education

IOP participants receive education about their mental health conditions, coping skills, stress management techniques, and strategies for relapse prevention. This education is a critical component of our outpatient programs, as it empowers individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to manage their conditions effectively. By understanding their symptoms and triggers, individuals can develop better strategies to cope with stress and prevent relapse as they go about their lives. Our educational servicers are tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient in our IOP programs, ensuring they are well-prepared to maintain their mental health.

Aftercare Planning

Regions will outline recommendations for follow-up appointments, support groups, and community resources to promote continued positive mental health after leaving the IOP program. Aftercare planning is essential for maintaining the progress made during treatment and preventing relapse. Our team works with each patient to create a personalized aftercare plan that may include medication management, support groups, and other resources. We are committed to providing ongoing support to help individuals achieve long-term recovery and stability.
