The Turnbridge outpatient program is designed for clients who are stepping down from a higher level of care such as an intensive outpatient program. Facilitated by Masters-level clinicians, this maintenance-level process group is offered once a week and is typically 75 to 90 minutes in length. Process group involvement can be a stand-alone service, or more often, is combined with individual therapy at Turnbridge.
