What Is a Virtual Intensive Outpatient Program at Embark?

Our insurance-reimbursed virtual intensive outpatient program connects you to a managed care coordination team through our secure patient portal. This is a convenient way for your adolescent, teen, and family to receive our high-quality care when attending in person is not an option or a virtual setting is preferred. Our online IOP provides individual and group therapy for young people as well as family therapy sessions to help meet your family’s needs.

What Are the Benefits of a Virtual IOP?


A virtual IOP gives adolescents, teens, and young adults the flexibility to connect with a therapist from home to overcome behavioral health challenges like obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and substance use.

Industry-Leading Therapists

Embark’s industry-leading online therapists offer virtual IOP treatment to adolescents, teens, and young adults in select states.

Measurable Results

Our therapists provide measurable information that shows how far young people have progressed in our virtual intensive outpatient program.


Our secure patient portal lets your family easily access premium therapy from wherever you need us.


We aim to meet you where you’re at and that may be in a location that doesn’t have viable in-person treatment options. We can also serve as an option for those who prefer to be at home or are waiting to get into an in-person program. We’re here to help you navigate getting the quality care you need.

A Unique Approach to Creating a Therapeutic Relationship

Embark’s virtual IOP is guided by the CASA Developmental Framework, a unique developmental framework our therapists and specialists use to help adolescents and teens struggling with issues like obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), bipolar disorder, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). CASA stands for commitment, acceptance, security, and attunement (also known as empathy in action).

How a Virtual IOP Works

During online IOP treatment, your adolescent, teen, or young adult will spend three hours per day, four days per week in a variety of interactive group therapy sessions. They’ll also have weekly individual sessions and online family therapy once every other week with our therapists and specialists to overcome issues they’re facing. We’ll make the experience as engaging as possible, with your adolescent, teen, or young adult receiving supplies for experiential activities throughout the 12-week curriculum. At the end of the program, we’ll work closely with you on discharge planning and next steps.

Attendance Reminders

Our patient portal will send you reminders so your adolescent, teen, or young adult will never miss a session. In addition, the convenience of accessing therapy from wherever you are has been shown to increase attendance rates, which helps drive better outcomes.

Young people will take a mental health assessment and psychiatric evaluation.
