What is IOP?

Intensive outpatient programming (IOP) is a level of behavioral healthcare that is typically more structured and intensive than traditional weekly therapy.

The goal of IOP is to provide individuals with the support and treatment they need to manage their mental health issues and achieve lasting recovery, while still allowing them to maintain their daily routines and responsibilities.

Curated groups

By bringing young people with similar mental health challenges together, we’re able to create group environments where clients can learn how to build connections and foster long-term healing.

Individual therapy

One-on-one connections are critical to the IOP model, which is why each client’s unique treatment plan includes a primary therapist for weekly individual sessions.

Family therapy

The #1 predictor of success in IOP is family involvement. Our virtual intensive outpatient program’s family therapy component teaches communication and coping skills to create a more supportive home environment both during and after treatment.

In their words

What our clients say

“Charlie Health helped me realize that the good does exist.”

It's really frustrating that finding help is a lot of trial and error, but what Charlie Health helped me realize that the good does exist. There is always good in advocating for yourself and putting in the time for how you want to live your life, but sometimes you need outside resources to help you realize your worth when life feels like it's too much to handle. I wish I could stay in Charlie Health forever. The group members and overall atmosphere was something I've never experienced but am so grateful to have come across.

—Rachel P.

“I wouldn't have gotten out of that dark place.”

Charlie Health has changed my view on groups and their benefits to the healing/self discovery journey. I feel that I have learned so much from not only sharing my story but listening to others’ and providing feedback that I needed myself. I am leaving Charlie Health thinking and feeling more clear, balanced, and confident than when I came in and I'm so excited to continue down this path. Thank you Charlie Health and all who were a part of my journey. I wouldn't have gotten out of that dark place without you!

—Kiana P

“Every bit of it is so worth it.”

"I've been struggling with depression and my mental health for about ten years. I've been in four different inpatient facilities; my most recent therapist said she hadn't seen any improvement and was giving up on me as a client. I was in the psychiatric hospital for a week before being discharged, and part of my discharge plan was to attend Charlie Health. I was hesitant at first, I had always been told to avoid online therapy, just because it lacked the connection that in-person experiences had, but I live in a rural area, and the opportunity to connect with other people of the LGBTQ+ community who were struggling with the same experiences I was sounded too good to pass up. Charlie Health's group therapy has helped me in so many ways. Not just with getting to meet people in the same community as me, even though that alone is amazing and an experience that should be treasured on its own. The group facilitators are all experienced and have their own stories to tell, and their own expertise to share. Every client that comes through has their own unique story, their own unique perspective on the world, their own unique identity that you get to learn. Hearing these stories, learning from these people - you don't realize it at first, but it's all part of the process. Every bit of it is so worth it."
