Intensive Outpatient Program for Adolescents

Adolescence can be a challenging time, especially when a teenager is struggling with a mental illness or substance use disorder.

Fortunately, Menninger's Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is available for adolescents who want to work on managing their mental health, developing social skills, recovering from substance use and/or managing adjustments at home or school. The IOP offers both peer and professional support, as well as family support, to engage both the client and family in the healing journey.


Who's Eligible

The IOP is open to 12- through 17-year-olds who may be stepping down from hospital or residential treatment or who need more structure and focus than typical outpatient therapy provides


The program is especially suited for adolescents with mood disorders, relationship and attachment difficulties, substance use, problematic use of technology, impulse control challenges, anxiety, depression, or other mental health-related difficulties.


Intensive Outpatient Program for Adolescents

Over six to eight weeks, a blend of in-person and virtual treatment includes:

  • Group therapy three times per week
  • Individual therapy
  • Family therapy once per week
  • A medication consultation 
  • Virtual parents group once per week

Programming features evidence-based therapies, including cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), conflict resolution, and other interventions.


To track the adolescent’s progress, gold-standard assessments that measure symptom reduction and other changes that reflect well-being are completed at regular intervals.
