Intensive outpatient treatment is a type of treatment that does not require a person to uproot their lives and live full-time at a treatment facility. It recognizes that many people require treatment with the flexibility to attend to responsibilities like work, school, or family. Treatment at an intensive outpatient facility is individualized to meet the needs of the person seeking recovery. Typical services include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, stress management, and trauma-informed treatment. In intensive outpatient care, patients receive treatments three times a day, five days a week.

SUN Behavioral Health features cognitive behavioral therapy, coping skills training, a wellness recovery action plan (WRAP), and a team of psychiatrists that provide comprehensive medication oversight management. These services are provided in a highly structured environment that helps patients learn and progress toward their mental health or substance use recovery goals. SUN assesses each patient individually, giving mental health providers insight into the treatment options most beneficial to that patient.

According to The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), 746,000 adults in Kentucky have a mental illness. Also, in 2020, 1,964 Kentuckians died from an overdose. Kentucky faces significant problems with mental health and substance use, meaning access to treatment centers like SUN’s intensive outpatient facility is needed in the state. The opening of new treatment centers with the ability to provide life-saving care to those struggling with mental health and substance use is welcome in The Bluegrass State.

SUN’s intensive outpatient treatment center will provide treatment and hope to Kentucky residents who struggle with mental illness and substance use disorder in Lexington and the surrounding area.
