Not everyone needs inpatient hospital care. Reno Behavioral Healthcare Hospital's Outpatient Programs provide needed treatment and therapy without the overnight stay.
At Reno Behavioral Healthcare Hospital, we offer patients a variety of outpatient treatment options. Our programs feature solution-focused therapy techniques, and we aim to provide each patient with the best possible treatment outcome for their situation. Additionally, our trained therapists adhere to trauma-informed care best practices and remain sensitive to the impact of trauma on each patient’s mental health.
Benefits of outpatient mental health programs
One of the main benefits of outpatient behavioral health programs is that they allow the patient to maintain important aspects of their home and family life during treatment.
A related benefit of outpatient treatment is that patients can more easily continue therapy for extended periods. Outpatient programs can more easily fit into one’s schedule and routine than inpatient programs, and long-term treatment can help yield more lasting mental health improvements. To avoid relapse of mental health issues, many patients often enroll in ongoing outpatient treatment as a step-down program from previous inpatient care.

Our Intensive Outpatient Program provides a high level of care, without hospitalization. Participants live at home and spend weekends with their families, while getting the weekly treatment they need in a convenient, comfortable and secure setting.
The program is highly structured utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy and other evidence-based best treatment practices. Patients are kept busy and educated on how to build life skills and repair relationships with family members and friends. Depending on the level of care required, outpatient treatment for addiction may last 4 weeks or more, but as progress is made, schedules can be adjusted to meet each individual’s needs.
