Adolescent Mental Health And Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program

Is your teen facing the challenge of overcoming addiction and/or a mental health condition? Not sure where to go or what to do? River’s Bend and our qualified therapists can help.

The Dual-Diagnosis Adolescent IOP is an accessible, flexible, and an effective treatment option which serves as a valuable bridge from inpatient to outpatient therapy. This is a structured program for teens managing moderate to severe mental health conditions and substance use disorder.

We strive to meet the needs of a teen’s busy life by providing a hybrid option of both in-person and virtual. The program runs 3 times per week for 6-8 weeks for 3 hours each session, a total commitment of 9 hours per week.

What can my teen expect during IOP?

  • A warm and welcoming environment where they can feel safe expressing themselves.
  • An interactive educational topic to begin the group, topics include recovery, coping skills, family systems, self-esteem, communication, emotional regulation, forgiveness and more.
  • An opportunity for group discussion led by our highly trained and experienced adolescent therapists- this time is used to process and discuss whatever is on the minds and is a problem-solving, reflective, and empowering skill building time.
  • An option for individual or family therapy sessions that can coincide with the group therapy.
  • Psychiatric Services are available for those that may need to manage their symptoms with medication management.
  • A continuity of care with other healthcare professions when necessary to provide a seamless course of treatment.

How do I get my teen into your Dual Diagnosis IOP?

The decision for an adolescent to attend the Dual Diagnosis IOP is made by the adolescent themselves, the family, other practitioners, or school requirements/ recommendations.

Rivers Bend considers the severity of the condition, specific needs of each person, the willingness to change and engage in treatment, and level of participation. This level of care can change the course of an individual’s coping and life experience; the range of topics and amount of skill-building is life changing.
