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

“I went from like rock bottom to the highest point I’d ever been.”

I went from like rock bottom to the highest point I’d ever been at with Charlie Health. My experiences at Charlie Health definitley changed me and changed my perspective. I went into it thinking it would fix me, and I realized halfway through the program that nobody is going to fix me, there’s nothing to be fixed, I am just here to help myself and they are here to provide me with the resources to help myself. That felt eye-opening.

—Siobhan M.

“I am forever grateful.”

This program has changed me in so many different ways. I am forever grateful for all that I learned and all of the help I received during my time with Charlie Health.

— Mikyla C.

“The people are amazing and they keep you motivated.”

Charlie Health helped me more than most of the therapy I've been through in the past. It might seem like a lot of work, but the people are amazing and they keep you motivated. I would recommend Charlie Health to any teen.
