This facility treats adolescents, 12 - 18 years old.
Adolescents who require intensive therapeutic services after hospitalization, or to prevent hospitalization, may participate in our Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program. Patients can be referred during hospitalization or by outpatient psychiatric providers. This Monday through Friday, after-school program provides comprehensive assessment, therapeutic structure and support within a nurturing group-therapy format. It is a short-term program that utilizes a cognitive-behavioral and family systems approach to help adolescents manage symptoms, improves social skills in a variety of settings, and provides families/caregivers with education and techniques to maximize the adolescents' functioning.
Clinical Services provided by the Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program include:
- Comprehensive and multidisciplinary biopsychosocial evaluations
- Cognitive-behavioral group therapy focusing on effective management of behavioral, emotional and/or substance-abuse problems; and learning skills to increase tolerance and regulation of feelings and interpersonal effectiveness
- Intensive family therapy
- Discharge planning and collaboration with the adolescent's school, outpatient clinicians, family and other community agencies to facilitate an integrated approach, to establish comprehensive transition plans and to promote the adolescent's optimal functioning
