The team at Lake Behavioral is delighted to introduce you to the newest member of our Outpatient Programs and Leadership Team. As you may know, our current programs in outpatient include Adult Intensive Outpatient (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization (PHP) programming for adolescents. Samantha Peritz is the new Director of Outpatient Services, where she will be working with her team to provide programs that will help our patients grow and learn about themselves, mental health and recovery. “IOP and PHP are important because they are the midway point between inpatient and individual levels of care.,” says Sam, “I like to think of it as ‘wrap-around-care.’ These kinds of programs are where people can find insight and learn self-advocacy. In working within their groups, they learn how to ask for help and problem solve. People who learn these skills will find them invaluable. They will become resilient and stay resilient in their recovery.” Sam comes to us with a wealth of experience in both inpatient and private practice settings. We wish her luck and encourage you to come meet her or call her to learn more about IOP and PHP. You can always find your Lake Behavioral team members at (855) 990-1900.
