Crossroads Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is typically 6 weeks. Both the teen and the caregiver are required to participate. The adolescent will participate 3-5 days per week from 2:00pm – 5:00pm. The caregiver will participate 1-2 days per week for 1-2 hours, including the initial intake, family DBT skills group (Wednesday’s 3:30pm – 5:00pm) and family therapy sessions. The caregiver participating in the program does not need to be the legal guardian. If the caregiver is not the legal guardian, the guardian will need to be present at the intake.

For treatment to be most effective, it is critical that the adolescent and caregiver have some motivation/interest in making positive changes. For this reason, the adolescent/guardian must call the program directly to schedule an intake. Referrals must come directly from the family.
