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

“My mental health has changed for the better.”

I went from having panic attacks several times a week without any coping skills to having panic attacks once a week or less with strategies to use. Before Charlie Health, no one was able to help me find any solutions to my extreme panic attacks. My mental health has changed for the better because of the services at Charlie Health.


“The skills that I learned saved my life. .”

My depression started really young, when I was 4 or 5 years old. I’ve dealt with so much since then—childhood sexual trauma, an eating disorder and then substance abuse. I flunked out of school and went on medical leave to find treatment. Charlie Health was the first thing I found. It’s given me the emotional maturity to handle hard things and I’ve gotten more emotional regulation, which is something I wish I had my entire life. The skills that I learned saved my life—my stressors are still there but how I react is completely different. It feels so good to have agency over my emotions. That's something I’ve never felt before.

“I'm very grateful for the Charlie Health community.”

Charlie Health helped bring me back from a manic crisis. I've never considered group therapy, but at CH, it was welcoming and effective. Individual counseling helped me recover my mind and myself. Through family therapy, we began conversations we needed to have years ago. Psychiatry was also excellent. I got to try a new medication that I'm much happier with. I'm very grateful for the Charlie Health community!
