Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Care for Adolescents
Centennial Peaks Hospital offers two intensive outpatient programs (IOP) for adolescents ages 13-17 that need mental health and substance abuse treatment but do not require 24-hour care. Our outpatient programs allow teens to work and live at home while learning life skills that can empower them to take control of their lives. We determine the needs of each patient through a complimentary, confidential assessment, but typical treatment plans consist of up to 20 sessions. Most patients will attend group therapy nine hours each week, and evening tracks are available for families that need the flexibility.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
The adolescent partial hospitalization program has been designed to support adolescent following an acute hospitalization or to avoid an acute hospitalization. The program has been designed for adolescents who are struggling with psychiatric symptoms, however does not meet criteria for an inpatient setting and are still concerning enough to need more than an Intensive Outpatient Program level of care. The PHP program provides 5 hours of therapeutic treatment – 5 days per week. 1 day per week- the adolescent and their parent attend a multifamily group therapy. Individual family therapy is offered as well. The adolescent will receive lunch daily. The program content include foundational skills for emotional regulation, coping skills to manage impulsive thoughts and behaviors, communication skills to develop tools to identify and meet emotional needs and more.
Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program (MH-IOP)
Adolescent MH-IOP is focused on the development of interpersonal skills, coping skills, relaxation skills, management of symptoms, and mood stabilization. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and other skills-based treatment methods make up a goal-directed treatment plan and homework to increase each patient’s functioning at school, with friends and family, and alone. Through discussion and interactive exercises, a wide variety of skills are practiced, with the goal of increasing the patient’s mental health function and their ability to enjoy life.
Adolescent MH-IOP meets three times per week, for three hours sessions, over five weeks, for a total of 15 sessions, which also includes a family night once a week.
