Intensive Outpatient Services Program

The Heartwood Program provides an intermediate level of care for middle school and high school aged children who would benefit from more intensive services, but are not in need of inpatient psychiatric care.  This level of care, delivered in the evening, provides a 12-16 week comprehensive program while accommodating regular school attendance.

Following an interdisciplinary diagnostic evaluation, an individualized treatment plan is developed with the adolescent and his or her family. The goals of our program include identifying and reshaping negative behavior patterns, developing individual and family problem-solving skills, improving school performance, and improving relationships.
