When you or your family member need behavioral or mental health services, you have options for outpatient help close to home. You can schedule a visit with our specialists at both the Klein Family Center and the Behavioral Health Pavilion.

Outpatient Clinic at Klein Family Center

Klein Family Center outpatient services can help with many situations, including:

  • when you feel sad, anxious or depressed
  • feel as though life isn’t working out
  • think you may have an addiction issue

Our outpatient clinic sees adults and kids ages 5 years and older. We can provide brief therapy and medication management in order to help stabilize your symptoms. We also help with withdrawal management.

Our team will help patients transition to longer-term mental health providers once symptoms are stabilized.

Appointments are required. Please call 410-874-0711.

Outpatient Mental Health Services at the Behavioral Health Pavilion

You can also visit our behavioral and mental health team at the Behavioral Health Pavilion at UM Upper Chesapeake Medical Center Aberdeen (UM UCMC Aberdeen).

Outpatient Clinic

The outpatient clinic at UM UCMC Aberdeen offers medication evaluation and management by a psychiatric physician or nurse practitioner. You can also receive psychotherapy services with a licensed psychotherapist.

The clinic is open from 8 am to 4:30 pm daily. Appointments are required. Please call 443-843-8050.

Intensive Outpatient Program

The mental health Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at UM UCMC Aberdeen is a structured group therapy for adults who are experiencing significant mental health issues that interfere with how they are able to function in their daily lives.

Group therapy provides an opportunity to explore how you understand yourself and others. Patients actively participate in treatment. They work with a highly qualified and licensed behavioral health team with a variety of specializations.

Referrals can come from hospitals, mental health providers or the individual. To learn more or to make a referral, call 443-843-8050.

Note: The IOP has specific criteria for acceptance into the program. A person who meets this criteria and is motivated to change and can interact well in a group setting will benefit from this program. If admission criteria is not met, our staff will work with you to provide referrals and other resources.
