The After School Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a program for adolescents (12-18 years of age) who are challenged with mental health issues. It is a short-term, intensive program for the achievement of adaptive/positive behavior change at home, school and in the community.
The After School IOP Offers
- An intermediate level of care for the adolescent who requires more intensive services that the traditional outpatient setting but does not require the intensity of a full day program
- Group-oriented sessions that focus on teaching and reinforcing an evidenced-based skill set
- A multi-disciplinary team approach to relieve symptoms and improve positive coping and communication skills
- Focus on family as a unit to engage parents and aid in their understanding of their child’sdiagnosis
- Coordination with adolescent’s outpatient providers, including school clinicians
- Aftercare referrals and recommendations (as needed)
