In-person and Telehealth (Zoom) Outpatient Treatment Available
Aurora Charter Oak Hospital offers outpatient treatment for adults, ages 18+, Monday - Friday on our campus. We also offer telehealth programs for both mental health and substance use problems. Day and evening options are available; however, please note that program days and times are subject to change.
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 hospitalization. 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.
For our in-person programs, we offer free transportation 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 the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is for individuals who are scheduled to attend less than 20 hours per week.
