The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a structured, short term treatment program designed for teens who have begun to struggle in their day to day lives due to mental health, eating disorders or substance abuse. A good IOP candidate is still able to function at home and in the community but requires a treatment plan that is more comprehensive than weekly therapy. The Intensive Outpatient Program is a Joint Commission accredited program that includes individual therapy, group therapy and family therapy. Clients attend treatment at our beautiful, home like facilities three hours per day, three days per week.

Advantages of Intensive Outpatient

Intensive Outpatient is a convenient option for teens who are in need of a comprehensive treatment plan but do not want to interrupt their day-to-day activities.  Teens in the IOP program benefit from the structure that comes with being in intensive therapy while still engaging in their normal daily routine.

In Intensive Outpatient your teen will attend treatment three days per week, three hours per day.  The treatment team will develop a treatment plan for your child that takes into account their particular needs as well as all of their own unique strengths and abilities. Individual, group and family therapies will be individualized based on this treatment plan.

Treatment Team

Your child’s treatment plan at Adolescent Growth is individually tailored to their needs and developed by a team of experts in adolescent mental health.  This team consists of licensed vocational nurses, licensed clinicians, therapists, group therapists and other trained professionals. Your child’s primary therapist will oversee their treatment and coordinate with the other professionals at our facility in order to provide targeted and personalized care.

Family Participation

You will be involved in your child’s treatment in a number of important ways. Before your teen is admitted to our program you will participate in an initial pre-assessment questionnaire.  During this assessment our admissions specialists will ask you a number of important questions about your child’s behavior and level of functioning.  The information we gather during this assessment will be one of many ways by which our clinical team will collect information to be used in developing a treatment plan for your child.  Once your teen is in treatment with us, you will be invited to participate in family therapy which will take place either once per week or bi-weekly.
