Aurora Charter Oak Hospital offers outpatient treatment for adults, ages 18+, Monday - Friday during the daytime on our campus. Our program is called CARES: Community Achievement through Reliable Extended Services. It is dedicated to providing a safe, caring and therapeutic environment for individuals who can benefit from receiving mental health and/or chemical dependency services while not requiring inpatient care. Our structured and supportive approach allows individuals to reduce symptoms, regain confidence and achieve greater levels of functioning.
Often, participation in an outpatient program can help avoid re-hospitalization or reduce the amount of time in the hospital. Individuals who attend our outpatient program have access to a multidisciplinary team of experts, including physicians, psychiatrists, registered nurses, therapists, and chemical dependency counselors. This multidisciplinary team develops a unique treatment plan specifically tailored to each patient enrolled in treatment.
Free transportation is offered from several surrounding cities, as well as breakfast and lunch. In addition to group therapy and education, other activities and events are scheduled on a monthly basis.
Individuals who attend at least 20 hours a week participate in the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), while other individuals participate in the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
