Outpatient Programs

We offer a full spectrum of outpatient psychiatric services to adults, geriatrics, children and adolescents. Our Partial Hospital Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provide intensive psychiatric services to adults and geriatrics only.

Our outpatient clinic provides traditional outpatient office visits to all age groups for all types of mental disorders. This includes assessment, medication management and psychotherapy.

Adult Partial Hospitalization Program

For adults who do not require care on an inpatient basis, we offer partial hospitalization. This flexible treatment schedule may help reduce concerns for family obligations and other responsibilities faced by many adult patients. The Adult Partial Hospitalization Program is part of the comprehensive health and wellness services available through the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral medicine at Prisma Health–Upstate.

Therapeutic services

Therapy is coordinated and delivered by a team of experienced behavioral health professionals: a psychiatrist, licensed RNs and clinical therapists. Patients take part in individual, group and family therapy. Additional structured and therapeutic activities are approved daily.

Review and evaluation

Patients are actively involved in their multidisciplinary treatment plan and evaluation. The patient, along with the psychiatrist, nurse and therapist, has a role in creating and evaluating the progress of professionalized goals for therapy.


Treatment does not end with discharge. Team assessments; input from the patient, family members and employer; and other considerations are reviewed before a patient is discharged. As part of the treatment process, follow-up visits to a psychiatrist and therapist are scheduled.

Private referral services

Patient progress and treatment plans are shared only with referring physicians and other confidential referring professionals.

Intensive Outpatient Program

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a more intense level of treatment than regular outpatient services or a lower level of care from a partial hospitalization program. IOP is a three-hour a day program that meets three times a week. This level of care is used as a transition back to the community along with strengthening acquired coping skills or introducing new ones. The goal of this program is to assist the patient in making changes and decisions which will lead to a healthier, happier life.  All forms of treatment are designed to meet the original goal of improving your level of functioning at home and/or work.

Employee Assistance Program

The Prisma Health–Upstate Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offers local and regional employers a services that is personalized to the particular employer. EAP is clearly distinguished from other employee assistance programs in that our professional staff members are fully dedicated to EAP services only.

We encourage wellness and early intervention, as well as early and easy access to services. We also believe that the communication with the human resources department of the employer is of paramount importance to ensure that Prisma Health–Upstate EAP is working in collaboration with the policies and procedures set forth by them.

Our goal
The goal of EAP counseling is crisis intervention, goal setting and problem resolution. This type of counseling will be done when it is clear that short-term treatment will, in fact, be effective in the individual’s case and will meet their needs. Most often, this is all that is needed.

When it is clear that the scope of the issues/problems go beyond that of short-term help, the EAP counselor may recommend that the person be referred for treatment elsewhere. When suggesting services outside the EAP, alternative options are reviewed with the client. Every effort is made to make referrals in the best interest of the client considering factors such as provider qualifications, client insurance plans, hours of service and fees.
