Treatment serves as a tool to help an individual more effectively live and enjoy life rather than to replace or pause their daily life. Many individuals need more than the “standard” once weekly outpatient session to benefit from treatment.

BCSC offers children, adolescents, and young adults struggling with multiple or complex problems a range of supports to bridge the gap between residential or day treatment and traditional outpatient therapy. The I-IOP begins with an evaluation to put together an individualized intensive program that targets an individual’s needs at the appropriate “dosage.”
