The IOP at Mazzoni Center distinguishes itself from other treatment programs because it creates a holistic, comprehensive, affordable, and most importantly: safe treatment experience -exclusively for LGBTQ people.
Our 20 years of experience outpatient behavioral health care to LGBTQ adults, adolescents, couples and families, has given us a deep understanding of the specific needs of our community. This understanding led us to create an IOP that focuses on the struggles unique to LGBTQ individuals.
At Mazzoni Center we recognize a one-size-fits-all approach does not work for everyone. First and foremost, our approach is person-centered and affirming, recognizing that everyone’s path to recovery is different. Acknowledging the mind-body connection, our specially trained staff utilizes principles of mindfulness and trauma-informed care to provide a meaningful recovery experience. In addition, program participants will have the support of a Certified Recovery Specialist (CRS) -- a peer who has lived experience as an LGBTQ individual in recovery.
