About Transitions at Sarasota Doctors Hospital

Transitions provides a safe, calm environment to promote recovery and well-being. Here, we offer outpatient mental health and wellness services for adults throughout the Lakewood Ranch and Venice communities. 

Outpatient mental health care

Our outpatient mental health and wellness programs are designed to promote recovery and wellness for patients 18 years old and older. We offer psychotherapy and psychoeducation in both intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization programs. These programs provide ongoing treatment after a mental health hospitalization as well as alternatives to inpatient behavioral health treatment.

Behavioral health conditions we treat

Our outpatient programs are for adults experiencing:

  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression (severe or debilitating)
  • Grief and loss
  • Mania
  • Psychosis
  • Schizophrenia

Partial hospitalization program (PHP)

Our PHP is for patients who need a highly structured, intensive treatment approach but do not require 24-hour supervision and care. This program focuses on helping patients understand and manage their symptoms effectively. Participants receive ongoing monitoring and treatment from a psychiatrist, registered nurse and licensed therapist.

This program meets Monday through Friday, from 9:00am to 2:00pm. 

Intensive outpatient program (IOP)

Our IOP provides intensive outpatient therapeutic care. In this program, we help patients with coping skills, assertiveness, goal setting and establishing support.

This group meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 9:00am to noon.
