True Self Intensive Outpatient Program for Young Adults is designed to meet the specific psychological needs of individuals 18 to 26 years old in the LGBTQIA+ communities.
The program’s theoretical framework draws on aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Our aim is to provide a safe and supportive environment where people can seek treatment without fear of discrimination. The Hall at 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 of young adults with similar goals.
The program runs simultaneously with our College and Connect IOPs with some groups carved out exclusively for True Self IOP patients and operates Monday, Tuesday and Thursday each week.
Please Note: We're currently offering on-site care with proper safety precautions or virtual programming in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
