Intensive Outpatient Program

Designed for the school age child.

(Age group 5-13)

Row Psychiatric Services Open House

In IOP, clients are in treatment up to 4 days per week, and up to 6-9 hours per week. At Row, our IOP uses story telling (conversation circles) to help the children access their joy, sadness, strength, and weakness.  Through storytelling, we explore the child’s lived experiences in both their emotional and social development.  Our conversation circles inspires both internal, and external transformation.

IOP programming includes individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, yoga, music and mindfulness.

The IOP can serve as a step-down level of care, helping to foster a positive transition into activities of daily living upon discharging from inpatient hospitalization or partial hospitalization. IOP can also be leveraged as a direct-admit level of care for school age children requiring a higher level of care from an outpatient setting — allowing them to remain engaged with their lives.

IOP Schedule:
