About Teen IOP
What is Intensive Outpatient Treatment for Teens?
Teen IOP vs Teen PHP
A teen intensive outpatient program (Teen IOP) differs from a teen partial hospitalization program (Teen PHP) in a couple of ways. IOP programs are less restrictive but still provide the same intensive level of care as PHP. Teens can participate in an IOP while still living at home, attending school, and participating in other activities. While teens will still live at home during PHP, they spend the entire day at the treatment center, five days a week. PHP is a better option for teens with serious mental health issues or those who need more structure and supervision. If you feel your family needs the highest level of care, learn about our teen residential treatment program.
