Compass Health Center’s OCD & Complex Anxiety Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) Programs offer specialized interventions to support teens whose symptoms persistently interfere with daily functioning. Compass’s therapy modalities are rooted in daily Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy, as well as habit reversal training. Through these evidence-based therapies, adolescents will learn to tolerate, rather than get rid of, distressing thoughts or physical sensations and live out a meaningful, values-based life despite their Anxiety. Adolescents attend group therapy sessions and meet daily with an exposure therapist to address symptoms and triggers leading to avoidance and compulsions. 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. Parents will help monitor and support their adolescent as they develop resilience through exposure work.
Compass’s multidisciplinary team develops an individualized treatment plan for each patient that includes:
Compass’s customized treatment plans are tailored to the needs of each individual and adapted over the course of treatment. Program participants work with therapists who specialize in OCD and Anxiety. The group therapy model provides the opportunity to connect with others, normalize experiences, and build group accountability. This individualized approach to treatment supports people in moving towards achieving a meaningful and functional life.
Adolescents in PHP receive daily education services during the school year to support their academic goals alongside treatment. This includes time each day for supervised study, case management, and coordination of care among the Compass treatment team, the adolescent’s school teams, and their family. Compass Recognizes that flexibility is key to ensuring a successful transition back to school following treatment at Compass. Your adolescent’s team is in regular communication with their school to adjust the treatment plan as needed to best support them.
Compass saved my life! I came into Compass with suicidal ideations and no hope. After a couple of weeks of being in the program, I did not have those thoughts anymore. Compass helped me change my mindset, from a negative pattern of thoughts to a more positive and optimistic frame of mind.Patient
My child is leaving Compass more equipped to handle her emotions, her anxiety, her depression, and the things that all trigger these. She is willing to use the skills, which is a huge change, and this is all due to how well Compass worked for her.Parent of Child Patient
I liked how in Compass, everyone was respectful of my opinions, pronouns, and preferred name. There was no judging, and you can open up to people. I also like how I can relate to other kids. I also really appreciate learning new skills.Patient
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!
The evening IOP program challenged me in a supportive and respectful way to help change my way of thinking. Compass provided me with the tools to help deal with life situations in a healthy way.
