Our Programs

The staff of the Behavioral Health Transitions at Citrus Memorial Hospital is committed to providing exceptional patient care by offering support and the necessary treatment for achieving better mental health. Behavioral Health Transitions is unique in that it features an intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization program. That means patients receive intense care during a structured program during the day and don't require an overnight stay.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

In this outpatient program, patients are provided a safe, therapeutic environment while working with staff that encourage and promote recovery. This program can help as an initial point of care, a step up from routine outpatient services, or a step down from an inpatient stay or residential care. Group therapy is offered and focuses on coping skills, assertiveness skills, goal setting, and co-occurring disorders. Patients receive 3 hours of treatment per day, for 3 days a week, are seen by a psychiatrist.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Group members participate in four groups each day with an emphasis on mental health and coping. The groups focus on a variety of subjects designed to aid patients in understanding and managing their symptoms in a more effective manner. Individuals receive ongoing monitoring and treatment from a Psychiatrist, Registered Nurse, and Licensed Therapist. Lunch is provided during the program, along with some light snacks and coffee.
