Program Overview

Compass Health Center’s Virtual 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 virtually in the late afternoon. Compass provides evidence-based therapies to help teenagers 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.

What to Expect

Compass’s multi-disciplinary team develops an individualized treatment plan for each patient that includes:

  • 100% virtual PHP/IOP programs
  • Programming is designed for virtual setting–interactivity, breaks, movement and experiential activities are used to avoid “screen fatigue”
  • Clinical outcomes are equivalent to in-person care
  • Consistently exceptional patient satisfaction ratings
  • Full psychiatric evaluation
  • Regular psychiatric consultations with a dedicated psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner
  • Daily structured group therapy
  • Regular individual therapy sessions with a dedicated individual therapist
  • Regular family therapy sessions with a dedicated family therapist (encouraged, not required for 18+)
  • Experiential therapies such as creative expression, improv, music therapy or mindfulness
  • Ongoing reassessments and modifications to treatment plan

Compass’s customized treatment plans are tailored to the needs of each individual and adapted as needed over the course of treatment. Program participants work therapists who specialize in mood & anxiety in adolescents. This individualized approach to treatment supports teens in moving towards achieving a more meaningful and functional life.
