Children's IOP NEW!
Our Intensive Outpatient Program is designed for children ages 9–11. The focus of this group will be to develop healthy coping strategies in order to assist with the treatment of anxiety, adjustment disorders, social skills development and trauma. The treatment team will utilize a variety of interventions, through CBT, trauma-informed care, behavioral therapy, emotional regulation and expressive therapy activities, in order to support the individual in developing the appropriate set of skills. This group focuses on the whole child and capitalizes on their strengths in order to reach their goals and to participate in positive social interactions and continue relationship building.
Women's Trauma IOP
Our new women's trauma intensive outpatient group is designed specifically for adult females who have developed ongoing mental health concerns, including but not limited to PTSD, depression and anxiety, after experiencing a traumatic event. This group will benefit adult females who may display a wide range of mental health symptoms and focuses on helping clients establish safety and stabilize intense symptoms.
