Helping Your Teen Thrive: Discover Essential Touchstones’ After-School Adolescent IOP

by | Jan 27, 2024

Parenting a teenager can be both rewarding and challenging, especially when your child is struggling with emotional regulation. In today’s fast-paced world, teens often face stressors that can overwhelm them, making it difficult to cope effectively. If you’ve noticed your child grappling with stress and emotional ups and downs, and weekly therapy sessions aren’t quite cutting it, Essential Touchstones’ Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) might be the answer you’re looking for.

Tailored After-School Support

Our Adolescent IOP is designed to fit seamlessly into your family’s busy schedule. Held after school hours, it allows your teen to receive the care and support they need without disrupting their daily routine. This program is an excellent option for families seeking more focused and intensive support than what traditional weekly therapy can provide.

Comprehensive Care in a 10-Week Program

The 10-week program at Essential Touchstones is thorough and all-encompassing. It begins with an initial assessment and psychological evaluation to understand your teen’s unique needs. The journey then continues with a combination of individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, and peer support sessions. This multi-faceted approach ensures that every aspect of your teen’s well-being is addressed.

More Than Just Coping – Learning and Growing

In our Adolescent IOP, your child will learn more than just coping mechanisms. They’ll gain valuable life skills, such as emotional regulation, stress management, and effective communication. These skills are not only crucial for navigating the challenges of adolescence but also lay the foundation for a healthier, more resilient adulthood.

Building Valuable Peer Relationships

One of the unique aspects of our IOP is the emphasis on peer support. Adolescence is a time when relationships with peers become increasingly important. Our program facilitates the development of these relationships in a healthy, supportive environment, allowing your teen to connect with others facing similar challenges.

Family Involvement for Lasting Change

At Essential Touchstones, we believe that family involvement is key to the success of any therapeutic program. Our family therapy sessions provide a space for open communication and understanding, helping to strengthen the family bond and ensure that the changes your teen is making are supported at home.
