College Student Intensive Outpatient Program for Young Adults is designed to meet the specific needs of college students, age 18 to 26 years old, who are struggling to function in the academic environment due to mood related issues, such as depression and anxiety. The program’s theoretical framework draws on aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). The supportive environment empowers young adults to learn how to gain control of their mental health and strive to achieve their personal goals in school.

The Hall @ Center House offers an inviting, casual space for interaction, quiet time and group activities. It’s a place for you to regain balance and get your life back on track in the company young adults with similar goals, working with our specialty team.
The program runs simultaneously and intermingled with our Connect and True Self IOPs. Programs operate Monday, Tuesday and Thursday each week from 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm (arrival at 1:30 pm on the first day for an evaluation before the program begins).
