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

At first Charlie Health felt like a lot in one week, but I grew to like it because I learned about coping skills that I didn’t realize I had. I also feel like I found kids in group therapy who I could relate to. I realized over time in group that I wasn’t alone.

—Ashlyn M.

“A profound impact on my life.”

When I started Charlie Health, I was in a bad place. But after I called them, they got me in in the next day or so. They have had a profound impact on my life and I absolutely recommend using them when you need it.

—Aaron N.

“I'm now laughing and smiling and loving my life.”

When I came to Charlie Health, I was angry about all kinds of stuff. I didn't laugh because of the anger. Working with Charlie Health, I'm now laughing and smiling and loving my life. I highly recommend them.
