Frequently Asked Questions

We understand you may have questions about adolescent intensive outpatient therapy. We have answers and are happy to guide you throughout the healing process.

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:

What is Intensive Outpatient Therapy?

Intensive outpatient therapy is a structured and intensive support program that allows every teen to receive comprehensive mental health treatment while remaining at home and attending school. 

It offers more intensive support than traditional outpatient therapy but is less restrictive than inpatient treatment.

Adolescent Intensive outpatient therapy can be beneficial for teenagers struggling with various mental health concerns, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Peer pressure
  • Substance abuse
  • Self-harm

If your teen’s struggles impact their daily life, relationships, or academic performance, intensive outpatient therapy can support their well-being. We recommend a consultation with our specialists to determine if IOP is the right fit for your adolescent.

Intensive outpatient therapy often involves individual therapy sessions, group therapy sessions, and family therapy sessions. Individual therapy focuses on your teen’s specific needs and goals, while adolescent group therapy allows them to connect with peers facing similar challenges. 

Family therapy helps everyone involved understand and support their recovery.

The duration of Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Therapy (IOP therapy) varies depending on a person’s needs and progress. Programs often last 6 to 12 weeks, with sessions occurring 3 to 5 times a week and each lasting 2 to 6 hours. 

Of course, the exact length is tailored to ensure that each young person achieves their treatment goals and gains the skills needed for long-term wellness.

 Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Therapy (IOP) offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Intensive support and guidance: Your teen will receive frequent therapy sessions tailored to their specific needs.
  • Structured environment: Our program provides stability and routine while allowing participation in other daily activities.
  • Development of coping skills: Learn healthy ways to manage emotions and navigate challenges.
  • Improved communication and relationships: Develop healthier communication patterns with family and peers.
  • Reduced symptoms and improved well-being: Your teen will feel better equipped to handle difficult situations and thrive in daily life.

Costs vary depending on your insurance coverage and chosen program. Please reach out or verify your service online.

At Ethos Wellness, we strive to make our services accessible to everyone.

Absolutely. Seeking help is a sign of strength and commitment to your teen’s well-being. Early intervention can significantly improve their long-term prognosis and quality of life. 

At Ethos Wellness, we create a safe and supportive environment where teens and families feel comfortable seeking and receiving help.

We believe that healing occurs in a family context. As such, we offer family therapy sessions and educational programs to support the entire family unit. 

This collaborative approach improves the effectiveness of treatment and creates a supportive environment for the adolescent’s recovery journey.

Unlike traditional outpatient therapy that might involve a weekly session, our Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Therapy (IOP) offers a more intensive level of care without the need for residential treatment. Adolescents take part in multiple therapy sessions per week, providing higher support and structure. 

This intensive approach allows for deeper exploration and treatment of mental health issues and fosters a stronger, more supportive community environment.
