Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a structured and comprehensive therapeutic treatment designed to cater specifically to adolescents who are facing mental health challenges, substance use issues, or co-occurring disorders. This program provides a middle ground between traditional outpatient counseling and residential treatment, offering a more intensive level of care without requiring participants to stay overnight.
In the Adolescent IOP, participants attend regular therapy sessions, group counseling, and educational workshops while still maintaining their daily routines and commitments. The program benefits aim to address the unique needs of adolescents and provide them with the tools, coping strategies, and support they need to overcome their challenges and achieve lasting recovery. It often includes a combination of evidence-based therapies, psychoeducation, family involvement, and holistic approaches to promote overall well-being.
Our Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides much needed support for high school-aged adolescents who are struggling with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. The program relies heavily on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) techniques, focusing on coping skills, distress tolerance, mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, family involvement, and education on the link between mental health and substance abuse.
These issues affect the entire family, therefore we highly encourage parents and/or legal guardians to be involved in the healing process by participating in a minimum of four family therapy sessions during the 7-week program. Additionally, every Thursday during Multifamily Group, parents and adolescents come together to discuss special topics and review skills that the adolescents have been learning in order to further support and coach their child in self-management.
