Program Admission Guidelines:

  • Must be currently assessed with a psychiatric diagnosis as defined in the DSM-5
  • Must function without active suicidal and/or homicidal intent, or psychosis
  • Any other specifics can be discussed during the intake evaluation

Is This Program Right For You?

If you are considering whether you (or a family member) might benefit from Palo Verde’s IOP, consider these questions:

  • Do you (or a family member) have frequent or unexpected mood swings?
  • Do you get intensely angry with others very easily?
  • Do you have areas of impulsive behaviors that affect spending, eating or sexual acts?
  • Do you have strong fears of rejection or abandonment?
  • Do you often feel bored or empty inside, or seem so stressed that you feel threatened?
  • Do you have difficulty deeply trusting others?

While anyone can answer “yes” to many of these questions to at least some degree, the concern comes when these turn into long-standing, persistent and intense patterns.

If three or more symptoms are present, you or your loved one may benefit from the IOP.
