The Tunbridge Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is an eight-week program for teens 14 to 17 years of age experiencing psychiatric (mental health) or co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.
The Intensive Outpatient level of care is for people living at home or in a safe and supportive environment while receiving treatment during the day. Our IOP schedule is designed to allow clients to continue engaging in school during the day while receiving psychiatric, psychotherapeutic, and skill-building care. This program, which is designed specifically for adolescents and employs an experienced adolescent care team, teaches clients and family members the core skills of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help them understand and manage powerful emotions, learn about themselves and their thought processes, and find effective ways to cope with stress and the symptoms of other problems. Clients and families also receive psychoeducation and counseling to help them improve interpersonal relationships with peers, friends, family members, and others.
This adolescent intensive outpatient program provides individual psychotherapy and group experiential therapy to help clients practice acquired skills.
