Call 601-663-1467 for more information, or to schedule an assessment.

Neshoba General Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is dedicated to providing the highest quality of treatment by using patient-centered care approaches in the group and individual therapy setting. Collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals is essential to developing and coordinating a plan of care that addresses the patient’s physical and mental health symptoms.

Studies show that approximately 80% of older adults have at least one chronic medical condition, and over 60% have multiple diagnoses. Older adults who suffer from chronic illness are significantly more likely to experience depressive symptoms.
