Intensive outpatient program groups that meet during the week are in the evening, while the Saturday groups are morning through early afternoon. There is a dining area where each group has meals. The program for each intensive outpatient program session includes a community check-in group, a meal, meal support therapy following the meal, and an experiential group.
