The Crossroads Transitional-Aged Youth (TAY) DBT Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) was specifically designed with the developmental stage of young adults between the ages of 18 – 24 in mind. This program is to support transitional-aged youth with mental health needs presenting during this unique time in their life when they are transitioning to adulthood and forming a sense of self. The program provides comprehensive DBT treatment, which includes: individual therapy, supportive/expressive counseling, DBT skills group, psychiatric evaluation/ medication management, and DBT phone coaching. These therapeutic modalities support the learning, practicing, and generalization of DBT skills.  There is also opportunity to discuss family therapy support if clinically indicated.

The Crossroads Transitional-Aged Youth (TAY) DBT Intensive Outpatient Program consists of 3 hours of treatment per day, 3 to 4 days per week.  The IOP meets Tuesday – Friday from 9am – 12pm.  The program provides comprehensive DBT treatment, which includes: individual therapy, supportive/expressive counseling, DBT skills group, psychiatric evaluation/ medication management, and DBT phone coaching.  The IOP is a six to seven-week program for a total of 22-24 treatment days.

For treatment to be effective, it is critical that the individual is motivated and interested in making positive changes. For this reason, the individual must call the program directly to schedule an intake. Referrals must come directly from the transitional-aged youth.
