Virtual Intensive Outpatient Programming For Teens and Young Adults

Our Virtual IOP program lasts 12 weeks with 10 hours of live programming per week.

Just like our in-person program, treatment takes place after work and after school, so there is less disruption from school and work. Clients and their family members are able to engage in telehealth sessions with our providers using a computer, tablet, or phone.

VIOP Overview

Virtual IOP programming

All online treatment sessions occur live with our master’s level therapists.

Whether it’s the teen (13-18 year-olds in high school) or young adult (18-30) program, all of the services happen online through a secure HIPAA-compliant teleconference platform.

Our program considers client’s emotional, mental, and physical states and the impact that substance use and mental health has on the whole person, as well as the impact it can have on the family.
