Intensive outpatient program

Posted by Penny on June 3, 2002, at 9:47:21

Well, it's come to this: I either enter an intensive outpatient psychiatric program for 2-4 weeks (3-4 times per week, 3 hour sessions ... sort of a group therapy), or my therapist is recommending hospitalization. Never been hospitalized, and while the thought scares me, much of me thinks it would be a relief...something to protect me from myself.

On the other hand, the outpatient program would, perhaps, also be a good thing, hopefully helping me to function at a higher level than I am right now. I was wondering if any of you have been through such a program and, if so, what your thoughts are on intensive outpatient treatment?

What I do know is that I felt a sense of relief when my therapist stepped into action on Saturday and took control of the situation. I feel like I have lost control of my life despite my efforts to take it back so it's nice to have someone I trust make some important decisions for me.
