The Intensive Outpatient Program provides intensive community-based and strength-based mental health services for children, teens and their families. Services are designed to serve those who are experiencing obstacles that threaten their foster care, relative, or home placements, or who are at risk of becoming further involved in the juvenile justice and social welfare system.
The Intensive Outpatient Program provides services tailored to the unique strengths, values, and norms of each child and family. To this end, it offers an array of services that may include: assessment; individual, family and group counseling; medication evaluation; crisis intervention; 24-hour on-call service; parenting skills training; support to caregivers; psychiatric services; advocacy in educational settings; rehabilitation services; linkage to community resources; and referrals to other Uplift Family Services programs when appropriate.
All services are provided in partnership with the children, their caregivers/parents, referral sources, natural community supports, etc. The Intensive Outpatient Program is child-centered and emphasizes family empowerment. Most services are provided in the child and family's natural environments (at home, school, and in the community). The program has a diverse staff, and can individualize services to incorporate each child's unique strengths and cultural contexts.
