Our Adolescent Psychiatric Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) serves adolescents ages 12 to 17 (or 18 if still in high school). Treatment consists of two psychoeducational groups and one process group. Elements of DBT and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are the clinical approaches.
Elements of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are the clinical approaches used in this program. DBT is an evidence-based treatment program addressing the needs of adolescent patients with varying mental health and substance abuse disorders. The partial program first promotes stabilization and then focuses on enhancing thinking and behavioral skill sets.
The Ridge Behavioral Health System offers on-site IOP treatment at a number of area high schools.
The program lasts approximately four to six weeks, for three hours a day, Monday – Thursday.
