Intensive Outpatient Services

Intensive Outpatient Services

The idea of entering an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) can be intimidating. However, in a warm and caring environment, an IOP is an opportunity for clients to receive more in-depth treatment to help them recover from significant mental and emotional challenges.

The intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a 9-15-hour per week/ 8-12-week program for clients who do not require residential care but need continuing care following the completion of inpatient treatment or following an assessment that recommends Intensive treatment as the most appropriate option. We combine evidence-based and wholistic treatment principles to ensure healing happens – mind, body, spirit. Individuals who complete the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) leave with skills to live productive lives with their families and in the community. Our caring staff and warm environment help promote healing. Person-centered parent and family services are offered and encouraged as part of the IOP treatment process. Services are available to children, youth, adults, individuals, couples, and families.

Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Services

The Adolescent Intensive Outpatient program serves teens ages 13-17 struggling with a variety of mental health symptoms. We assist clients with concerns about home, school, family, and interpersonal relationships.

After an initial assessment, we match each adolescent with a treatment track and individual therapist to best meet their unique needs. The advanced practitioner nurse completes the treatment team and provides a thorough assessment and medication management as needed.

Using a group modality, we provide an adolescent with a structured and safe environment to learn new skills and process difficult emotions. These groups focus on developing coping skills in evidence-based treatment, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), and Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP).

At the end of treatment, adolescents leave with an individualized plan that allows for continued growth. Teens will present with improved mood, increased socialization, and new skills to manage intense emotions.
