Our Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program, “Next Step” allows the patient to maintain his or her regular school schedule and live at home, while receiving complete treatment services for psychiatric and/or substance abuse problems.
The program is offered Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and is based on the Level System of therapeutic progress. It encompasses:
- group therapy
- creative expressions therapy
The treatment team is comprised of:
- licensed counselors
- social workers
- registered nurses
Family involvement is a vital part of the treatment process and can assist in reducing relapse as the family members become actively involved in the therapeutic process. Upon successful completion of a course of treatment, a follow-up Aftercare Program is available at no charge to help the patient transition out of treatment.
