Help for our most vulnerable patients

Millions of teenagers struggle with behavioral health issues. Our Adolescent Outpatient Program helps young people who may be transitioning from inpatient care or who need more intensive treatment than that offered by traditional outpatient programs. Our experts are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for teens experiencing any of the following:

  • Poor impulse control
  • Self-harm or thoughts of self-harm
  • Depression, sadness, hopelessness
  • Mood instability
  • Auditory or visual hallucinations
  • Persistent worry or panic attacks
  • Anxiety
  • Hyperactivity or hypervigilance
  • Paranoia or delusions
  • Substance Use
Our Outpatient Program includes two important services:

Partial Hospitalization Program
For patients who may be transitioning from inpatient care or who may need more intensive treatment in a time of crisis to prevent the need for hospitalization.

  • Patients attend five groups per day, five days a week
  • Groups focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Coping Skills Training and WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plan), an evidence-based system to help people attain the highest level of wellness or relapse prevention
  • Our team of psychiatrists provides comprehensive medication management

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
For the individual who may be stepping down from partial hospitalization but still requires the support and structure IOP provides (or who may need more intensive treatment than that offered by traditional outpatient care).

  • Patients attend three groups per day, three days a week
  • Sessions include a daily process group (to work through current issues), cognitive therapy, and the daily WRAP or relapse prevention group
Key components of treatment include:
  • Board-certified psychiatrists
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Mindfulness
  • Support groups (including 12-step groups)
  • Relapse prevention
  • Stress management and life skills development
  • Problem solving
