What Is Ellie Express (FE-IOP)? 

First Episode Psychosis- IOP (FE-IOP) is a 9-week intensive outpatient program for adults experiencing their first episode of psychosis. This program utilizes key concepts from the NAVIGATE program, NAMI, OnTrackNY, and other evidence-based treatment modalities to work towards recovery after an initial episode of psychosis.
