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

“They helped me learn new coping skills.”

Charlie Health has helped me during a time when I needed support and community. They helped me learn new coping skills and I met new friends who have empathy and mutual understanding.

—Holly S.

“I've found a part of myself again, a spark of joy I haven't seen in myself in years.”

When I started with Charlie Health, I was in a really dark place. I was actively re-experiencing my trauma through flashbacks and deeply depressed. Charlie Health helped me realize what was happening, how to handle those flashbacks in the moment and the future, and also helped me learn what it means to be worthy. I feel like I've found a part of myself again, a spark of joy I haven't seen in myself in years. I've learned a lot of skills that I know will be in my toolbox for a long time. The bonds that I've made with my group and even the group facilitators has been so healing and validating.

—Hannah O.

“It has truly helped me in so many ways that I can't even explain.”

I was mentally abused and severely neglected for many years. I went through so much therapy and ended up in a mental hospital. I came out and joined Charlie Health which has helped me tremendously. I am so thankful for this program, and it has truly helped me in so many ways that I can't even explain.

—Brooklyn C.
