Guiding the youth towards a healthier, more positive life.

Our Intensive Outpatient Programs for teens are gender-specific, which is a vital distinction for young men and women who are battling substance abuse and mood disorders. Through our gender-specific programming, our patients can focus entirely on their recovery.

For those who don’t require a residential treatment program or need to step down to a lower level of care for teenage boys, we offer an intensive outpatient program for boys who struggle with a substance use disorder or mental health issues. It is designed to address the unique struggles that young males face when dealing with addiction, such as low self-esteem, lack of male parental figure, disruptive/disorganized attachment, trauma, and gang involvement.

The Positive Living Group offers an intensive outpatient program for girls who struggle with a substance use disorder. It is designed to address the unique struggles that young females face when dealing with addiction, such as low self- esteem, human trafficking, physical/sexual trauma, bullying, body image issues, and disorganized/disruptive attachment.

The program requires a minimum commitment of two months which is made up of eleven clinical hours per week. These hours are divided between a general process group, a relapse prevention group, a family systems group, and a family psycho-educational group for parents.

Also included are one individual therapy session and one family session per week. Each client is randomly screened for substance use once per week. Clients and their families receive an individualized treatment plan during their first week of treatment.

During IOP care, the adolescent will:

  • Have opportunities to practice coping mechanisms and life skills and use them in real-life scenarios
  • Continue to grow while surrounded by the support and understanding of their peers and counselors
  • Further explore their mental and emotional health to ensure real-world preparedness
  • Continue regularly attending groups and individual therapy sessions to maintain the focus on recovery
  • Create meaningful relationships with other teens in recovery, building a like-minded support network of people who understand their journey
  • ‍Maintain a structured routine which reduces the urges and relapse risks
