HopeWay Enhances Evening Intensive Outpatient Program
February 28, 2019
HopeWay announced today additional components to its Evening Intensive Outpatient program, which offers care for those unable to attend treatment during the day at the Charlotte nonprofit mental health center for adults.
Beginning in February, the program added art, horticultural and recreational therapies – core components of HopeWay’s holistic approach to mental health treatment. These integrative therapies, also key parts of HopeWay’s residential, partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient (IOP) day treatment programs, provide opportunities for clients to express themselves in ways they may not be able to during traditional “talk” therapy.
HopeWay’s evening program, which started last summer, meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m.
“HopeWay’s Evening Intensive Outpatient program is designed to support those individuals who are learning how to transition back into everyday life, those who want to try group therapy to help gain perspective on their mental illness, or those who want to continue therapy and growth as they navigate the intricacies of life,” said Dr. Alan Bozman, Director of Clinical Services.
HopeWay started serving clients in November 2016, filling a gap between acute care and outpatient treatment by offering both a “step down” from hospitalization and a preventative step to avoid hospitalization. Since then, HopeWay has treated more than 700 clients from 26 states, Canada and the Philippines.
HopeWay is in network with most major insurance companies, including Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. In addition, all HopeWay clients and families are encouraged to apply for HopeWay’s financial assistance program, which is funded through annual philanthropy.
HopeWay’s 12-acre campus in South Charlotte includes 36 private rooms for residential clients, facilities for group and family counseling and therapies ranging from cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapies, to art, cooking and horticulture to music, recreation and pastoral counseling. The nonprofit center, where treatment is voluntary, also can accommodate approximately 50 clients in its PHP and IOP day treatment programs. HopeWay’s admission process starts with a call to (888) 859-2106.
HopeWay is an accredited nonprofit residential and day mental health treatment center for adults located in South Charlotte and serving clients from the Charlotte region and from across the nation. HopeWay’s continuum of care meets the needs of adults living with mental illness and their families with residential care and day treatment programs as well as after-care planning, with a goal of helping clients live successfully and independently in the community. HopeWay’s goal is to also raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues through a vigorous community education program.
