Outpatient for Youth is an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) that serves teens between the ages of 13 and 17. Many of our teens are in traditional or alternative school programs, experiencing challenges in their family or home life, and struggling with academic performance and social relationships. There are many causes, but most stem from problems with mood, mental health, behavior, or alcohol, and drug use. At Las Encinas, we recognize that these challenges go hand-in-hand with the kind of suffering often associated with trauma, loss, heartbreak, and broken relationships, addiction, and other painful human experiences. Without a compassionate intervention by people who care, the cycle of suffering continues. Our goal is to offer a safe and therapeutic environment that fosters healing, restoration, and revitalization for the entire family through intensive youth outpatient treatment three evenings per week.
