Treatment Options

Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program


Statistics show that approximately 1 in 5 young people, ages 13-18, suffer from at least one mental health disorder.

Adolescent IOP is an integrative approach to improve patient's self-esteem, impulse control, emotional regulation skills utilizing CBT, DBT, positive psychology, and psychoeducation. A wide range of mental health disorders can be treated in IOP.

An Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program is more intensive than once per week psychotherapy and less disruptive than an inpatient program. This means adolescent patients can receive consistent mental health treatment services without having to miss significant amounts of school or time with friends.
