Helping Teens Develop Healthy Behaviors for a Fulfilling Life

Adolescence is a difficult time for anyone. Add additional triggers and itʼs easy to overextend oneʼs natural coping resources. Individual therapy can be helpful, but often once a week just is not enough to meet the needs of a struggling teen. Innovaʼs IOP for teens meets teens where they are to provide them with the support they need to survive adolescence. 

IOP meets 3 evenings a week, after school, in times that are conducive to a teenage schedule. Two days are virtual to minimize parental responsibility, while one day has an in-person option to add socialization and interactive opportunities. 

Graduates of our Teensʼ IOP have increased communication skills, ability to handle stress, and greater emotion regulation, making them more prepared for young adulthood.

What Clients Are Saying

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.
