Program Overview

Compass Health Center’s After-School Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Program treats adolescents struggling with Mood & Anxiety Disorders. Adolescents in this program continue to attend school during the day and join IOP in the evening. Compass provides evidence-based therapies to help them develop more effective coping skills, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). As part of Compass’s individualized care model, adolescents participate in family therapy with one or more of their family members, which greatly facilitates symptom management and overall treatment goals.

    Compass Success Stories

    Double Quotes - Compass Health Center

    Compass is a godsend. An amazing program for children who are struggling and families who are seeking help and guidance. I could not imagine that she would be so much better in less than 2 months. I wish we could have found Compass without going to the ER. Thanks for all you do!
