The Heartwood Program provides an intermediate level of care for clients who would benefit from more intensive and supportive services but are not in need of inpatient psychiatric care.
Clients must complete our Service Request form to receive services and may be referred by a provider, Emergency Department or an inpatient unit.
Intensive Outpatient Program (Adolescents)
Clients appropriate for this program are between the ages of 12-18 years, have a mental health diagnosis, and are able and willing to participate in an intensive group therapy program.
The IOP group therapy component runs from Tuesday through Thursday, from 3:00 p.m.- 6:00 p.m. for 16 weeks. Admissions are on a rolling basis.
An individual therapist, psychiatrist, and family therapist are paired with each client upon admission. Appointment times are coordinated between each provider and the family prior to the client’s start date. Additional services (i.e.- education consultations, substance abuse counseling, etc.) may be recommended on an individualized and as-needed basis.
Following an interdisciplinary diagnostic evaluation, an individualized treatment plan is developed with the adolescent and their 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.
Our clinical services team has developed a program that integrates the latest research to provide clients and their families with tools to master the practical challenges of everyday life. Medication management as well as individual, group, expressive, and family therapies, are provided.
