Serving adolescents ages 12 to 17

We understand that adolescence can be a challenging time full of complex transitions and emotional development. That’s why we’re here to provide support, guidance, and a safe space for young people facing mental, emotional, or behavioral health challenges.

Our Program Can Help Adolescents:

It can be tough to know if you have a mental health disorder, especially when you’re a teenager or younger. These years can be challenging for anyone.

But it’s not uncommon for symptoms of potentially serious illnesses to first show during adolescence. These conditions are painful, dangerous, and frightening.

We treat adolescents with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Recognizing personal strengths and areas of growth
  • Developing problem-solving and coping skills
  • Identifying and modifying unhealthy thoughts

The Benefits of Intensive Outpatient Program

  1. Comprehensive Care: An IOP provides a wide range of services to address various issues from substance use to mental health disorders.
  2. Individualized Treatment Plans: Each teenager is unique, and so is their path to wellness. IOP offers the flexibility to customize treatment plans to align with individual needs and goals, which can significantly enhance recovery.
  3. Access to Multidisciplinary Teams: Our IOP has a team of diverse professionals, including therapists, social workers, psychiatrists, and more. This broadens the range of expertise available to cater to a teen’s varied needs.
  4. Maintain Daily Life: IOP allows teenagers to continue with their daily life activities such as school and family obligations while receiving comprehensive therapy. This balance of treatment and real-life experience facilitates practical application of learned skills.
  5. Peer Support: Group sessions offer an opportunity for teenagers to connect with others facing similar challenges. This environment fosters mutual support, understanding, and sharing of coping strategies.
  6. Family Involvement: Family plays a crucial role in a teenager's life, especially during recovery. Touchette Regional Hospital’s IOP involves family members in the treatment process, providing education and skills to support their loved one's recovery journey.
  7. Transition and Continuity of Care: For adolescents stepping down from an inpatient program or needing more support than outpatient counseling, IOP provides an intermediate step that ensures continuity of care, which is vital for sustained recovery.
