Balance staff uses a family systems approach with the adolescent and family by identifying and bringing empathy to difficult family dynamics. This is done by working cooperatively with the individual adolescent and by providing support and education for the adolescent’s parents. Family members as well as outpatient providers are to be included in the recovery, treatment and discharge process.
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) are for anyone who may benefit from a stronger source of support and structure in their path toward growth. This type of treatment can serve as a form of aftercare following inpatient or partial hospitalization or as an option for those who find that individual psychotherapy alone is not an adequate source of support for addressing their concerns. IOPs provide structure, support and guidance while allowing clients to remain active in their lives by maintaining daily routines such as work or school.
