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

“You'll be a better you.”

This is a great program! You'll be a better you by the end of it. So much support and amazing people to relate to and work with!

—Ariyanna A.

“Charlie Health made me feel like I wasn't alone.”

I have struggled with more in my life than I think anyone ever should, and sometimes my story feels like a bad supervillain's backstory, as opposed to mine. I have kept so many things hidden from people in my life for my whole life, and almost no one knows everything about me and my past. But the people at Charlie Health made me feel like I wasn't alone. Both the staff and the other group members made me feel like I wasn't an alien--I felt like I was human with them. This program is amazing, and we need to have more programs for mental health like this one. Amazing place, with amazing people all around.

—Gloria M.

“They made me understand that I'm not alone.”

Absolutely loved every group member I met here. They made me understand that I wasn't alone and that I am worthy. I will remember them for the rest of my life. I could not have walked out of my severe depressive episode without them. To whoever is reading this: you and your pain are not alone in this world. There are people who share them. You will be okay - even if you don't believe it right now.
