ADOLESCENT PARENTS

Why Participate in an IOP Program?

Intensive Outpatient services are designed to serve as an increase in care from once-a-week outpatient therapy or as a step-down from a higher level of care (acute care hospitalization or residential services). Genesis IOP provides individualized treatment plans and utilizes Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Mindfulness-Based Therapy in treatment. Parent education encourages family involvement and is required every Wednesday via Zoom from 4 – 6 PM.

We believe that involvement with parents and caregivers is crucial when accomplishing positive outcomes. In the parenting meeting, you will learn skills that will help you to set boundaries, validate, and increase communication with your adolescent. Our services are also unique in that we offer a hybrid program in which the adolescents meet twice a week in person and once a week virtually. We practice LGBTQ+ affirmative strengths-based practice.
