Teen Intensive Outpatient Program
Adolescence can be a difficult time for anyone
Innovaʼs IOP for teens meets teens where they are to provide them with the support they need to survive adolescence. Graduates of our Teen IOP have increased communication skills, ability to handle stress, and greater emotion regulation, making them more prepared for young adulthood.
What We Cover
We use empirically proven therapies that are highly skills-based.
These skills will equip your teen with the skills they need to cope with the pain they have experienced in the past, while successfully navigating present day challenges in relationships and school.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
Provides practical life skills for dealing with emotions, setting boundaries, having difficult conversations and downregulating when life becomes overwhelming.
Substance Abuse (Seeking Safety)
Identifies the ways one uses drugs, alcohol and other substances as a means of coping with lifeʼs difficulties and offers alternative means of coping.
Looks at how past traumas, hurts and losses affect current relationships while learning ways to make healthy connections today and build intimacy with those you love most.
Hear what parents think about our Teen IOP Program
"Since starting Teen IOP, our daughter has been using different skills to deal with her emotional spirals. Just this week she chose to go to the nurse's office and take her medications and talk with the counselor about how she was feeling, instead of acting out like she normally would. We can see the changes that are happening in her behavior and in how she is thinking and feeling."
"The founder is very hands on and helpful. I needed to refer a friend for mental health treatment for her daughter and Dr. Kasi responded quickly and was extremely helpful. They offer a service that is very much needed yet hard to find- mental health residential for adolescent girls."
"This place was truly a GODSEND!!!!!!! We appreciated the attentiveness and the effort poured into our family members treatment. She is truly a better person and definitely the treatment put her in a better place. We thank you for everything you poured into her through therapy and even checking up on her months after her treatment was over."
