    Intensive Out-Patient (IOP)

    Upon admission each patient will go through an extensive intake questionnaire and past history with a licensed mental health provider. The patient will also receive a standardized diagnostic personality test (MMPI(A)) to help determine specific target areas, develop treatment plans, assist in differential diagnosis, and help assist in the therapeutic assessment process.


    Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

    Offering expansive treatment methods.

    Using an evidenced based approach, we teach both adolescents, young adults, and their families’, skills to address self-destructive behaviors. We offer a 10-12 week program where patients and their families will focus on behavioral skills including: mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and the middle path. The program also incorporates other treatment modalities including; the 12 step model, hands on activities, specialty groups, and experiential therapies such as art and yoga.

    Interactive Group Therapy

    Providing specialized group therapy sessions.

    Both patients and their families benefit from a group approach and positive social support. Parents also participate in varied groups, which have been developed to provide parent education and coaching, skills training, and parental support.
