BALTIMORE, Oct. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Mental health treatment center MindWork Group has announced the opening of a new Psychotherapeutic Intensive Outpatient Program (PIOP). The PIOP will offer fifteen hours a week of group therapy led by psychiatrists with psychoanalytic training or other advanced psychotherapy training and other experienced clinicians. Patients will also be seen for family therapy, art therapy and several times a week individual therapy in addition to psychopharmacologic evaluation and treatment.
"Our vision is to provide biopsychosocial treatment in a therapeutic community setting for people that can safely manage as outpatients while receiving care," says President and CEO Dr. Thomas Franklin, "A hotel right across the parking lot from our offices makes things easier for out of town patients wanting to avail themselves of care that might not be available in their communities."
"We hope to meet a need that exists in Baltimore and Nationally for comprehensive, thoughtful outpatient care and consultation that is more intensive than most IOP levels of care in the area." Dr. Franklin continues, "Everyone will at some point be touched by disabling mental illness either in themselves or a family member. Excellent care is difficult to obtain in our fragmented healthcare system. At MindWork Group we work as a team with small numbers of patients to achieve the best results by creating a setting for clinicians to do their best work through building relationships with patients and families"
