Pine Meadow Counseling offers several intensive outpatient treatment programs for youth ages 8 to 17 years old as well as their families. Our IOP is 3 days per week, 3 hours per day and our PHP is 5 days per week 4-5 hours per day. The programs are designed to serve families who have children with varied clinical presentations such as; anxiety, depression, school problems/truancy, suicide attempts/threats, severe family conflict, anger/rage episodes, self-mutilation, oppositional defiant behavior, trauma, grief/loss, runaway, and school issues such as ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities and social anxiety.
Youth mental health issues often interfere with life at home, in the community and at school. Our treatment strategies are based on the philosophy that helping a child or teen, requires a team-based approach. At PMC our treatment team model is a collaborative approach where we partner with parents, schools and medical professionals directly to ensure the best possible outcomes. We want each family to be successful in every aspect of their lives so we take the extra time to make that happen.
The Youth Intensives at PMC are an opportunity for youth to learn and work in a culture where trust, respect, and rapport form the foundation where they can soar. These qualities become givens, and they do not have to worry or question what will happen. They know they are safe. They know they can be who they are. They know that they will be respected. In this calmer less reactive state of mind, solutions to problems are found and we can begin teaching how it is that their perception of reality is created from the inside out. This “inside-out” understanding is about the very nature and process of thought, how it is that we create our own thinking. As they begin to see that the internal constraints they experience are simple creations of their own thinking, they now see the connection between thought and their experience of life.
To best determine which program is appropriate for your child we conduct a thorough intake assessment with you and your child. During this process we will review all medical records, school Individualized Education Plans or 504 accommodations, as well as communicate with all medical staff who have worked with you and your child. After this intake process is complete we will contact your insurance plan for approval or we will work with you on any financial plans to help your family receive the best care.
