Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program

Transformative Care for Teen Mental Health and Well-being

The journey through adolescence is not without its challenges, particularly when it comes to mental health. At Stacie Mathewson Behavioral Health & Addiction Institute, we recognize the unique struggles faced by teenagers today, including depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts. These issues signal a critical need for accessible, effective support and care.

The Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program runs after school three days a week for five weeks, allowing for a balanced yet intensive approach to recovery.

Understanding Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)

For families navigating the complexities of mental health care, finding the right level of support is paramount. Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) offer a middle ground for those seeking an alternative to the extremes of regular outpatient therapy and inpatient treatment stays.

IOP is a structured yet flexible approach to behavioral healthcare. It is designed for individuals who require more intensive support than what's typically offered in traditional outpatient settings. Ideal for those not needing full-time inpatient care, IOP allows teenagers to engage in a comprehensive treatment plan while maintaining their everyday activities and responsibilities.

Why Choose an Intensive Outpatient Program?

  • Targeted Support: IOP provides a more concentrated level of care, catering to those who need an intermediary level of support.
  • Extensive Training: Our providers have undergone extensive training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to ensure they offer the best support possible for managing and recovering from trauma.
  • Maintain Daily Life: Participants can continue their educational, social and familial commitments while receiving the necessary care.
  • Individualized Care Plans: Each teenager's journey is unique. Our IOP fulfills individual treatment goals, focusing on sustainable recovery and improved mental health.
