Inpatient Treatment

Men and women in need of immediate and stabilizing care can benefit from Optima’s top-notch inpatient treatment. With 24 beds available, this level of care can be the inception of the healing process and allows patients to benefit from ongoing support from our staff.

Visions Outpatient Treatment

Optima recognizes that not every patient requires intensive programming, which is why we are pleased to provide high-quality outpatient services through our Visions programs. Visions includes two distinct levels of care that can help patients learn the skills needed to live healthy lives:

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): Visions’ PHP is a less-restrictive type of treatment compared to our inpatient care and allows patients to participate programing for most of the day for about 6 weeks. This level of care may be recommended as a step-down from inpatient treatment or suggested as the level of care to meet a patient’s needs.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): The IOP offered at Visions is designed to help patients solidify their coping skills as they continue to learn how to manage the stressors of everyday life in a healthy manner.

Each level of care offered at Optima Specialty Hospital includes several proven effective treatment methods, including medication management services and individual, group, and family therapy, so that each and every man and woman is able to overcome their presenting concerns.

If you or someone you care about would benefit from the exemplary care we offer, please contact us at your convenience. Our staff is standing by, ready to answer any questions that you or your loved one may have.

At Optima Specialty Hospital, we are prepared to give you the care and skills you need to live the healthy life you deserve to be living.
