Group length depends on the level of care you are placed into initially. How long you remain in each level of care depends on how well you are doing. As you progress through your treatment goals and you are stable enough to step down into a lower level of treatment, you will attend with less frequency. If you are struggling in a level of care, your level of treatment may increase. A general rule of them is the partial hospital program is four days per week for four hours a day, intensive outpatient group therapy is three times per week for three hours a day and outpatient therapy begins at once or twice a week.
