Behavioral Health Outpatient Program

The Behavioral Health Program at Broaddus Hospital is an outpatient psychiatric service that consists of group counseling, case management services, linkage to community and social support systems, psychiatric assessments and medication management.

The Structured Outpatient Program (SOP) is designed to assist individuals transitioning from inpatient to outpatient care or those seeking to prevent an inpatient stay. All services are overseen by a psychiatric team that directs treatment in collaboration with the patient.

The Program is designed to improve the quality of life for adults and gives them the opportunity to learn positive and healthy ways to cope with daily stressors, as well as resolve issues of the past through the use of group and individual therapy. Groups are developed and facilitated by a licensed therapist and offer supportive therapy and processing. Groups meet three times a week and address issues including depression, anxiety, social isolation, grief and loss, self esteem problems, coping skills, and anger management. The Structured Outpatient Program encourages family education and support as needed.

All clients in the SOP see the Program Psychiatrist at least once a month. The doctor works one on one with each client to make sure that their medications are working in conjunction with their treatment plan. Also included is after care, follow up and resource integration.

Services are covered by Medicare, some commercial insurances and private pay. Our financial services department will work individually with each client to facilitate viability.

The program is located on the campus of Broaddus Hospital in Philippi, WV, in the Medical Professional Building.
