Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program
Hello and welcome to The Wholeistic Academy!
Our Adolescent Intensive Outpatient program (IOP) or Teen Mental Health Recovery Program is designed specifically for adolescents ages 12-18 who find themselves in need of support beyond once per week counseling and don't meet the need for inpatient hospitalization or residential mental health treatment. We help kids who’s issues stem from mental health challenges, family dynamic issues, peer or school related stress, developmental concerns, or plain old life challenges. We are not diagnosis specific because instead of focusing on the problem, we focus on the solution which we believe lies in healthy, balanced living. This focus also has the added benefit of kids not hyper-focusing on a label, or diagnosis, nor looking for the quick fixes our society often attaches to such labels. Our program specialized in teen mental health treatment including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, self harm, suicidal ideation, and relationship issues.
The Teen Mental Health Recovery program has two main parts:
First is the adolescent group therapy component. This is the main component of our program. The groups include structured process groups, didactive skills groups, and unstructured community building time. Kids are immersed into group life for three hours three days per week for the duration of their time in the program. As needed, individual check-ins are also done during this time.
Second is the family component. The family component includes weekly parents group, biweekly phone calls to parents from a case manager, self-paced educational modules online (coming out Summer 2023), and referral to long-term family therapy when needed. Family check-ins can be accommodated when necessary and per child and parent’s agreement.
Success is linked to active participation in both components of our program and those who are willing and able to dedicate themselves to our simple (but not necessarily easy) approach often report drastic improvements in their lives.
