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

“The alumni groups have been amazing.”

The alumni group have been amazing! Very open to ideas and suggestions and the group facilitators are open to being accommodating and open to suggestions even at the last minute! I have felt safe and comfortable since joining, and I will admit it was a little anxious because it was a change and didn’t know anyone but it’s been amazing and a very welcoming experience!

— Theresa R.

“By far the best thing that I did for myself.”

Charlie Health is by far the best thing that I did for myself. The facilitators are very personable even in a group setting. They truly care about what they do and want to see you succeed. I'm so disappointed to be leaving but I know that I now have the skills and coping strategies to continue successfully in my life.

—Amanda C.

“Charlie Health is the primary reason I have been able to make positive changes in my life.”

I came into Charlie Health very sick and concerned with my future. After only a week, I was already using new skills I had learned, and connecting with my group members in healthy ways. I have never felt more supported than when I was in my group setting. Having an individual therapist on top of group also helped with my extra needs that I was unable to cover in group. Unlike some therapy, I am able to perform different skills to regulate my mental health. I am confident that Charlie Health is the primary reason I have been able to make positive changes in my life and continue living every day to its fullest.

—Sydney C.R.
