Embark’s Outpatient Program FAQ 

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

Outpatient visits to an Embark clinic can involve weekly individual counseling sessions with one of our therapists. We also offer group therapy through our intensive outpatient program and our therapeutic day treatment program.    

There are many benefits to outpatient treatment at Embark Behavioral Health. Our outpatient mental health services allow adolescents, teens, and young adults 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 main difference between weekly individual counseling sessions, the intensive outpatient program, and the therapeutic day treatment program at Embark 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 goal of outpatient treatment at Embark Behavioral Health is to help adolescents, teens, and young adults overcome difficult behavioral health and substance abuse issues like anxiety and depression through a series of visits to one of our therapists for weekly individual counseling sessions or an intensive outpatient or therapeutic day treatment program. 

The main difference between inpatient hospitalization and outpatient treatment is the treatment setting. Our outpatient services, which include IOP and day treatment options, provide a good option for adolescents, teens, and young adults whose needs can be met by visiting a therapist in theirneighborhood while living at home and maintaining their daily routine. Inpatient hospitalization treatment is a good option for those who need to leave their home and receive dedicated 24-hour care in a hospital setting to overcome mental health and substance abuse issues.

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 program or intensive outpatient program. On average, outpatient treatment at our 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 treatment program.
