Greenwood Village Outpatient Program FAQ

During outpatient therapy, your adolescent, teen, or young adult will meet with a local Denver therapist while maintaining their daily schedule. For those who have moderate mental health symptoms and a daily routine that’s not negatively affecting their mental health, outpatient therapy may be a good option.   

Outpatient visits to our clinic can include weekly individual counseling sessions with one of our Greenwood Village therapists. We also offer group therapythrough our intensive outpatient program and our therapeutic day treatment program.  

There are many benefits to outpatient treatment at our Greenwood Village clinic. Our outpatient program allows adolescents, teens, and young adults in the Denver area to maintain work and school schedules and receive support from friends and family while receiving counseling — and at a more affordable cost on average than most inpatient treatment options.  

The goal of outpatient therapy at our Greenwood Village program is to helpadolescents, teens, and young adults in Denver area, which includes Lakewood and Aurora, overcome difficult mental health and substance abuse issues through visiting our compassionate therapists.  

The main difference between inpatient hospitalization and outpatient treatment is the treatment setting. Outpatient services at our Greenwood Village program provide a good option foradolescents, teens, and young adults whose needs can be met by visiting a therapist near their local Denver-area neighborhoods, including Lakewood and Aurora, while living at home and maintaining their daily routine. Inpatient hospitalization treatment is a good option for those who need to leave theirhome and receive dedicated 24-hour care in a hospital setting to overcome mental health and substance abuse issues.  

The main difference between weekly individual counseling sessions, the intensive outpatient program, and the therapeutic day treatment program at our Denver-area clinic is the amount of time your adolescent, teen, or young adult will spend in treatment. Weekly individual therapy sessions require the least amount of time and can be scheduled at a specific time of day. An intensive outpatient program takes place in the evening to accommodate school and work schedules and typically meets three hours a day, three to four days per week, for a total of nine to 12 hours per week. A therapeutic day treatment program typically meets 5.5 hours a day, five days a week, for a total of 27.5 hours per week. 

The length of outpatient treatment depends on each youth’s particular needs and whether your child is attending weekly individual therapy sessions or participating in a therapeutic day treatment or intensive outpatient program. On average, outpatient therapy at ourDenver-areaoutpatient clinic can last from three months to one year. If a deeper level of treatment is needed, adolescents, teens, and young adults can step up a level of care to an inpatient hospitalization program.
