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

“I came out with more than I would have imagined.”

I came to Charlie Health to help manage my anxiety and depression. My goal wasn't to be completely cured in 9 weeks but at least to learn skills to help me function in life. My goal wasn't to learn to love myself and the things around me; instead, I wanted to tolerate myself and those around me. I entered Charlie Health with my mindset on the bare minimum, but I came out with more than I would have imagined. I have been able to attend school, shower, brush my teeth, and eat consistently for the past 2-3 months. Yes, I still have moments of breakdowns and moments of self-hatred, but I don't go back two steps but instead stay in the same place and ready myself before I continue to take a step forward. I haven't regressed but progressed, which is the most important thing. I have benefitted greatly by being a part of Charlie Health and am hopeful for the future.

“I finally feel like I can breathe.”

I have been struggling with PTSD and anxiety my whole life. I have been working so hard to better myself and I finally feel like I can breathe. I had undiagnosed autism when I got here, and the diagnosis literally changed my life for the better because so many things were answered and my life makes sense thanks to CH.

—Charlie Health Alum

“Gave me a sense of community in group sessions.”

Charlie Health has helped me learn new ways to get through tough times and gave me a sense of community in group sessions. My personal therapist was amazing and gave me all the tools to help myself be a better person as well as treat myself better. Anyone struggling with mental health can be sure that Charlie Health will help you get through.
