Teen Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient Treatment for Adolescents

Riveredge Hospital, located a few miles west of Chicago, Illinois, provides an intensive outpatient program for adolescents ages 13 through 17. Let us help your loved one take positive steps forward through our adolescent outpatient treatment programs. 

An intensive day program for adolescents at risk of hospitalization, in transition from an inpatient stay, or experiencing emotional or behavioral difficulties at home, in school, or within the community. The IOP for teens can be attended in-person or virtual. 

Teen IOP Program Details

Our intensive outpatient program for teens is designed specifically to meet the mental health needs of patients aged 13-17. This group is going through a time of changes — both physically and emotionally — and demands a compassionate teenage psychiatric treatment team that understands what they feel and are experiencing. 

The IOP for teens at Riveredge Hospital is here for your loved one. Our adolescent IOP meets year-round, Monday through Friday, 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. (Virtual) or Monday through Friday, 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. (In-Person)

For children and adolescents who need continuing treatment, we offer intensive outpatient programs during the summer. We provide assessments, individual, group and family therapy to help youth improve functioning.

Our IOP for Adolescents Features:

  • Trauma-focused expressive and experiential therapies
  • Multi-family group therapy
  • Psychiatric evaluation and weekly medication management
  • Lunch and dinner are provided

Participants benefit from a less intensive and therapeutic after-school program. Treatment is designed to help those with emotional or behavioral issues whose symptoms may be too acute for traditional therapy but do not require inpatient hospitalization. 

Adolescent Mental Health

Our teen outpatient program is built to help your loved one with a mental health disorder early in life — which studies show can have a positive impact later in life, too. 

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), around half of all adults who experience a mental health issue began seeing symptoms before the age of 14, meaning that the earlier individuals seek treatment, the better. 

As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states, the number of adolescents reporting poor mental health is increasing. Poor mental health in adolescence is more than feeling blue. It can impact many areas of a teen’s life. Youth with poor mental health may struggle with school and grades, decision making, and their health.

If symptoms are appearing in your teen or they are experiencing mental health issues, it’s more than likely it will impact them later in life, as well. Getting them help as soon as possible can make an impact on their life now and for the future.
