Madison, WI – Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin (GHC-SCW) announces the expansion of behavioral health services offered to members with the start of the new GHC Foundations Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). 

GHC Foundations IOP is a treatment program for the benefit of patients who are either stepping down from higher levels of care or could use more intensive services than outpatient therapy and medication management. This new program will provide individual treatment and group settings to overcome a wide spectrum of behavioral health concerns. 

Program participants will spend time in a group therapy setting, learning and practicing skills while exploring symptoms and experiences in a safe environment. To ensure a comprehensive treatment plan, every participant will meet with an individual therapist and a psychiatrist at least once a week.  

“There is great demand in our community for more resources to treat and manage the serious behavioral health challenges facing many of our family, friends and neighbors,” said Dr. Mark Huth, GHC-SCW President and Chief Executive Officer. “That’s why opening this program up to all local insurance providers was a huge priority for us.” 

Individuals interested in this program should request that their current treating provider submit a referral.
