IOP is offered Monday through Thursday from 4-6pm. There is also a family group twice a month, that offers education and support to families while their teens go through the program.

Adolescent IOP is open to all teens. While in the program, they will learn practical skills from therapy modalities, participate in expressive therapies like art, psychodrama, mindful movement and animal-assisted therapy.
