The Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Shady Grove Medical Center provides half-day treatment for individuals 13 to 17 years of age who have a primary mood disorder, the ability to participate in group therapy, and a reliable and secure access to the Internet.
The Adolescent IOP is a voluntary program which utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in a group setting.
How does it help?
The IOP is based on an evidence-supported curriculum that promotes behavioral wellness in adolescents while focusing on the development and reinforcement of healthy coping techniques, self-esteem, improved communication skills, healthy decision making, and mindfulness techniques. In the program, adolescents are evaluated by a psychiatrist at least once a week and receive daily intensive group therapy.
