Re: Has anyone gone through Intensive Outpatient Treatment?

Thanks for replying and sharing newpath. I wasn't hospitalized but was offered when I went to the ER one night from really bad panic/anxiety attacks. I was told I would benefit more from an outpatient program. I found out I've been misdiagnosed since I was in my late teens and I'm considered to be bipolar II with a high tendency of depression and anxiety/panic attacks. I have been put on a new med, but was taken off because the side effects where horrible. I just started a new medication today and am hoping that this one will work. The whole IOP treatment is different than going to one on one therapy, but I need meds to aid me in my recovery. I've been in IOP for 4 weeks now and am hoping to see improvements soon, especially with this new medication.
