When is Outpatient Treatment Necessary?

  1. When adolescents, teens, or young adults require less intensive care and can manage their symptoms while still living at home.
  2. When a young person has a strong support system in place and can benefit from therapy sessions that accommodate their school or work commitments.
  3. When the cost of inpatient treatment is not feasible, outpatient therapy may offer more payment and insurance options.
  4. When adolescents, teens, or young adults want to maintain their daily routine and responsibilities while receiving treatment.
  5. When transitioning down a level of care from inpatient treatment.

What If My Child Needs a Different Level of Care?
