Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
The Meehl Foundation, which created a highly successful transitional residential group home known as the Meehl House, is expanding its reach in the mental health community by offering an intensive outpatient program. The goal is to provide a strong resource for clients in the surrounding area who have been unable to achieve long-term mental wellness elsewhere. The new program made its debut in mid-June at the foundation’s facility in Brazoria, Texas.
This new IOP provides both group and individual services. These services will focus on adult clients needing treatment for Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Anxiety, Depression and Substance Abuse. Similar to the residential program, the outpatient program will consist of the Meehl Foundation’s Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Skills Training with Life Coaching and personal development programs.
The new IOP provided by The Meehl Foundation will give working professionals throughout Southeast Texas the opportunity to take steps in treatment of mental health issues and substance abuse without interfering with their employment and family obligations. Options for outpatient treatment times can be discussed during an initial consultation. Family education is also encouraged to help family members learn how to resolve issues connected to the mental illness or substance abuse of a loved one receiving outpatient care.
The Meehl House, located along the Gulf Coast in Brazoria, Texas, has been serving clients since 1998.
