Intensive Outpatient Programming (IOP) in Georgia

Illustration of clinician

Nearly 5 million Georgians live in a community that does not have enough mental health professionals

We’re changing that.

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

Teen

“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.

“Charlie Health succeeded where other programs failed me.”

Charlie Health provided me with an invaluable sense of safety and community as an LGBT+ person. It is so hard for people to seek mental health treatment to begin with and being a part of marginalized communities can make that even more difficult. Charlie Health succeeded where other programs failed me in making me feel safe and secure in my identity, and with connecting me with other people who shared my identities and struggles and could really empathize and provide helpful feedback.
