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

“The best thing that's ever happened to me.”

Charlie Health saved and changed my life. Where I live it's so hard to find a group IOP. I found Charlie Health by accident and it is the best thing that's ever happened to me. My group facilitators are hands down the best!

—Charlie Health Alum

Charlie Health did a lot for me in terms of exposing me to people who have different experiences than me. I was shocked at how I, as a 20-year-old college student, was able to connect with a mother of 3, a doctor, and many other people who were in totally different places in their life than me. It was a rough ride but worth it.

—Annabelle C.

“Charlie Health saved my life.”

Before Charlie Health, I was really struggling with my anxiety. Going to work, doing daily chores and activities, getting out of bed, and even taking care of my basic needs was too much and too difficult for me. My anxiety led to bouts of depression and mania that cycled rapidly and left me exhausted. My medication management was very poor, and my therapist told me, "Your problems are beyond my capabilities." So, she suggested Charlie Health. I'm really glad I chose to call Charlie Health and participate in the program. I haven't felt this good in months. I have a new lease on life and feel so happy and understood. My anxiety is at an all-time low, and my depression, while still fluctuating, is manageable. I can go to work now without feeling crippling anxiety, and I can function day-to-day in ways I never thought possible three months ago. Charlie Health saved my life. I'm so happy.
