What is Intensive Outpatient Treatment for Teens?

Intensive Outpatient Treatment is a crucial part of our continuum of care for teenagers struggling with mental health concerns and substance use disorders. It’s a versatile option that falls between inpatient care and traditional outpatient therapy. IOP at Hillside Horizon for Teens offers the following key features:

We understand that balancing treatment with school, family, and personal commitments can be a challenge for teens. Our IOP allows them to attend therapy sessions while continuing their daily routines, ensuring minimal disruption to their lives.

Structured Support

Adolescents receive structured support through group and individual therapy sessions. These sessions help teens develop coping skills, improve their emotional regulation, and build a strong support network.
