Dardanelle Regional Intensive Outpatient Program offers assistance to adults who experience struggles with their mental health. The Intensive Outpatient program meets 2-3 times a week for group therapy on topics such as life skills, coping skills, grief, and more. Along with group therapy, patients receive medication management and visits from a psychiatrist once a month.
There are three interactive group sessions daily, with a snack break at 11:30 am in a family dining atmosphere. Patients spend approximately three hours a day, during treatment days, at the counseling center. Transportation is provided.
