Adolescent Program

Adolescent 13-18 years old

The Adolescent Mood and Anxiety Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is a time-limited, intensive treatment program for adolescents who suffer from mood and anxiety symptoms that impair their functioning in everyday life. PHP is a program that is specifically designed to keep patients from requiring an inpatient psychiatric hospitalization. It is also structured to provide care to individuals who need to step down from a psychiatric inpatient stay or if the patient needs to step up from intensive outpatient level of care. Patients who enter this program will attend treatment 3 days a week, after school.

The Adolescent Mood and Anxiety Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) helps adolescents who are suffering from symptoms related to mood and anxiety. This program is for individuals who need a more intensive treatment that a one or two hour a week outpatient treatment schedule does not provide. This program benefits individuals who do not need a partial hospitalization or inpatient level of care.

The Program Format

Collective Care Clinic provides each individual with a specific care plan while in the Adolescent Program. We use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as the guiding model of treatment that informs all the skills and interventions in the Adult Program.

The Adolescent Program is dedicated to the use of evidence-based treatments focused specifically on the use of skills. The therapeutic modalities used in the Adult Program include Cognitive Therapy (CT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Problem-Solving Therapy (PST), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), and Behavioral Activation (BA).

The principle format used in the Adolescent Program is group therapy. This structure of treatment is ideally used to promote the teaching of skills to the individuals we serve. This format also provides individuals the opportunity to gain a normalization of their experience.

We encourage the participation of parents and/or primary caregivers when adolescents are in our IOP or PHP programs. This includes providing the treatment team with updates on what is happening outside of treatment including in the home and school environments.

Family therapy is a necessary and required component of treatment with adolescent patients. Families will be asked to meet with staff regularly to promote improvement.

Academic Support

Adolescents are provided with educational support daily while in the PHP program during the academic year to help support them while they are temporarily out of their school environment. Each individual will be provided with supervised study time with academic support, coordination between the Collective Care treatment team and the patient’s school, and the patient’s family.

One of the goals of treatment at Collective Care is to help adolescent’s transition back to their school environment successfully. This can be a difficult process for some adolescents, especially after being in intensive treatment. At Collective Care Clinic we want to make that transition as smooth as possible. To ensure this, we will be in regular contact with the adolescent’s school and will tailor the level of support and the treatment plan to meet the needs of the adolescent, school, and family.
