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

“This experience was definitely life-changing.”

I entered Charlie Health after I was inpatient at a psychiatric hospital for 8 days. I had thoughts of hurting myself and wanting my life to simply end. At first in Charlie Health, I was closed off and didn’t want to be there. Then I started to open up and I was very much satisfied with how kindly I was treated. I felt at home. I started talking a lot more with the people that were in my group and felt instantly connected with everyone. The group facilitators made it very safe and calm and would always help me and everyone else who needed anything. This experience was definitely life-changing. I have learned so much and so many different ways to cope with everything I fight on a daily basis. I am honestly so blessed that I was able to be the client of all of you, thank you so much!

“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.

“I have never encountered such involved and compassionate care.”

I joined Charlie Health after a failed attempt to seek help from a local Emergency Department. I felt worthless and hopeless, like my family and friends would be better off without me. But at Charlie Health, for the first time in my life, I was provided with the skills I need to not only combat these big feelings, but to challenge them and change the way I perceive myself and the world around me. Charlie Health introduced me to the term “C-PTSD” and the results of working through my complex trauma have been incredible. I’ve been in and out of therapy for 15 years, and I have never encountered such involved and compassionate care from a team of professionals. Thank you, CH & teams!
