Intensive Outpatient Program for Adolescents
Altitude, Highlands Behavioral Health System’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) for adolescents, is for struggling teens that need more support than a once-a-week therapy appointment can offer, but who are higher functioning and able to maintain their daily activities and academics. Altitude is conducted in a group setting in which patients can find acceptance and develop strong, healthy behaviors through cognitive-behavioral therapy, communication skills, boundary setting, experiential therapy, team building and self-esteem building. Treatment includes group therapy; development of interpersonal, coping and relaxation skills; symptom management and focus on self-actualization.
IOP is offered on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 4pm to 7pm. We accept most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid. Adolescents can enroll anytime following a no-cost, confidential assessment.
