A service of Baptist Health Systems, a faith-based health care provider, Baptist Behavioral Health Services of Jackson, Miss. provides an intensive outpatient programs (IOP) for adults struggling with chemical dependency. The facility also offers specialized programs for individuals struggling with co-occurring mental health disorders.


Upon admission into the intensive outpatient program, clients may participate in an initial substance abuse and psychological assessment to ensure the facility’s outpatient level of care is appropriate. The evaluation also helps to identify any co-occurring mental health disorders that need to be addressed. The facility’s IOP can serve as an alternative to hospitalization or follow-up treatment for individuals recently discharged from an inpatient program.

Typically lasting between 10 and 15 weeks, IOP combines psychotherapy with educational classes to address various issues concerning addiction while equipping clients with the skills necessary to maintain sobriety. To identify underlying causes of addiction, clients may participate in individual, group, and family therapy sessions.

In addition, clients may attend education classes and training on coping skills, trigger avoidance techniques, stress management, and other proven-effective methods to prevent relapse. Typically, intensive outpatient programs typically involve individuals attending three weekly sessions.

In addition to programming focused on chemical dependency, individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders may also attend specialized groups on specific disorders, such as anxiety or depression. To address these issues, clients may receive ongoing psychological evaluations and medication management, along with counseling and educational classes.

According to survey results, Baptist Behavioral Health Services offers aftercare services for program alumni. These services may include less-intensive aftercare groups and referrals to community-based resources that support recovery.
