Vienna Outpatient Program FAQ
Outpatient therapy at our Vienna program involves treatment using therapeutic techniques such as DBT and TF-CBT, which can be provided to your child in their neighborhood while they maintain their daily schedule. For adolescents and teens 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.
There are many benefits to outpatient treatment at our Vienna clinic. Our program allows adolescents and teens 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 program is to help adolescents and teens overcome difficult behavioral health and substance use issues like anxiety and depression through a series of visits to one of our Vienna therapists for weekly individual counseling sessions or an intensive outpatient program.
Outpatient visits to our clinic can involve weekly individual counseling sessions with one of our Vienna therapists. We also offer group therapy through our intensive outpatient program. During these treatment options, our therapists will use therapeutic techniques such as DBT and TF-CBT that will help your adolescent or teen overcome mental health challenges.
The main difference between inpatient hospitalization and outpatient treatment is the treatment setting. Our outpatient services, which include an IOP, provide a good option for adolescents and teens whose needs can be met by visiting a therapist in their local Vienna, Virginia, neighborhood 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 use issues.
The length of outpatient treatment depends on each youth's particular needs and whether your adolescent or teen is attending weekly individual therapy sessions or participating in an intensive outpatient program in Vienna. On average, outpatient treatment at our clinic can last from three months to one year. If a deeper level of treatment is needed, adolescents and teens can step up a level of care to an inpatient hospitalization treatment program.
Vienna Outpatient Program Testimonials
"During our time at Embark my child grew stronger and more confident. They also grew closer to their family. Embark’s multi-faceted approach of combining group therapy with individual therapy and medical support helped them adapt to high school and cope with anxiety. I am proud of my thoughtful child and grateful that we found Embark."
"Embark is a very high quality treatment program for teens with a warm, nurturing, and supportive environment and staff. The treatment incorporates DBT skills and therapy, which was most helpful to my child. The enrollment process was easy, and we did not wait long for a placement in an IOP program for my child. My child was reluctant at first but then bonded with all the staff and other teens. The medication management definitely helped. The discharge was fluid, as my child transferred to a PHP program afterwards. My child's treatment was successful in that they experienced less suicidal ideation and depression at the end of the IOP. My child needed a long time in this IOP, but I am convinced that it saved their life! Thank you!"
"You are your child's most important advocate and cheerleader --if they are reluctant to go to a program this long, don't give up. You know your child best. Give your child time to settle into the program. Listen carefully for feedback and also observe your child for behavior improvement. Some changes are more subtle. But, overall, listen to your child and try to hear them when they tell you how they feel."
"Where to start! We experienced other programs and this is hands down the best. The support from the team is exceptional. The therapists all work together to help the child. They are available and open to speak to parents and keep them up to date. For us, they recognized when our daughter needed more help, gave us direction and welcomed her back when she was ready to step down back to IOP. Our daughter is still doing IOP as I wrote this, but has made tremendous improvement in her overall well-being. It is a very difficult time when a loved one goes through a mental health crisis. We tried a variety of places and none were as exemplary as Embark. Do not hesitate to enroll your child. The help, insight, and care they receive will put your child on the path to heal, grow, and mature."
