Overview of the adolescent intensive outpatient treatment program at Options Behavioral Health in Indianapolis, IN
The adolescent intensive outpatient treatment program at Options Behavioral Health in Indianapolis, Indiana, provides therapy and support services to youths ages 12-17 who have been struggling with substance abuse, chemical dependency, and/or certain other mental health disorders.

Typical length of stay in IOP at Options is six weeks, though the specific time that your child will remain in the program will be determined according to their needs, progress, and goals.

The professionals who provide treatment in the IOP place a premium on establishing and maintaining close relationships with adolescents and their families in order to ensure that each youth ages 12-17 who heals with us receives the focused attention that will empower them to achieve successful long-term recovery.
