Outpatient Services FAQs
Mountainside offers three options for Outpatient Services: Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), Outpatient Program (OP) and Individual Therapy (IT). As part of treatment, you will have access to individual and group counseling, family therapy, psychiatric services, Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) including Suboxone, Sublocade, and Vivitrol, toxicology screenings, and wellness therapies. Services are provided on an as needed basis as determined by your clinician.
