Acute Psychiatric Outpatient Program (APOP)
At Sage, we recognize that some behavioral health conditions can ebb and flow in intensity and duration. Our Acute Psychiatric Outpatient Program (APOP) is an enhanced program providing intensive, structured outpatient treatment for higher-level clinical needs, as a step-up from traditional intensive outpatient programming and as a step-down from inpatient/residential treatment.
We developed this special acute psychiatric outpatient program to help address the need for intensive, structured care for acute psychiatric cases in an outpatient setting. Inpatient or residential care is not always necessary, or possible, for certain individuals. If you do not require 24-hour supervision or hospitalization and you are struggling with uncontrolled symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, or other mental health disorders, the ability to accomplish activities of daily living, and/or substance abuse, our APOP may be right for you.
Depending on your unique needs, you may be placed in either our Behavioral Health or Substance Use Disorder APOP track. Our APOP curriculum is two weeks, unless otherwise clinically indicated. APOP meets daily Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at our Albuquerque clinic. Following the completion of APOP, you will transition into either our Substance Use Disorder IOP or Behavioral Health IOP to continue your treatment journey at our clinic with our caring team.
