Intensive Outpatient Program
The Mission of East End Intensive Outpatient adolescent program is to provide a structured, therapeutic and community based program for at risk youth who are in need of more intensive levels of treatment.
East End IOP is a time limited, active treatment service that provides intermediate care that aims to decrease symptoms, improve functioning and avoid the need for more intensive levels of treatment. The program is designed for the treatment of adolescents who are still able to function in their school environment. East End IOP will promote and support positive changes while helping to maintain the integrity of the family unit through preventative, diagnostic and therapeutic intervention.
