Bridging Gaps With Virtual Intensive Care for Your Teen

Embracing the benefits of a virtual platform, our IOP is typically 4-12 weeks and is designed to support teens grappling with various life challenges without the need for a residential program. Through online interactions, we provide flexibility, accessibility, and an environment that encourages real-life practice of therapeutic skills. Whether dealing with school failure, substance abuse, trauma, or other complex issues, our virtual IOP is here to transform your teen’s life and provide support to your family. 

Each week of our virtual IOP is rooted in the following four pillars: 

  • Individual and Family Therapy: Deepening self-awareness and trust through weekly sessions.
  • Education and Skill-Building: Weekly groups for parents and teens focusing on recovery.
  • Ecology of Care Tools: Expanding teens’ worlds to reduce isolation and enhance connection.
  • Group Therapy: Fostering connections and community to combat loneliness in teens.

Frequently Asked Questions 

How is the program personalized to fit my teen’s specific needs and schedule?

We believe that customized care is essential to effective treatment. Every plan is unique, and the care can range from twenty hours a week to just three, depending on your teen’s needs and schedule. We continually work with you and your teen to determine the most effective path forward, adjusting the schedule, number of hours, and approach as needed to maintain efficacy. Our personalized approach ensures that each teen’s individual journey is fully supported.

What is the cost of the virtual IOP for teens?

The cost of our Teen Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Antelope Recovery is tailored to the individual needs and circumstances of each teen and their family, with no fixed cost for the program. The variability in scheduling—ranging from three days a week for ten hours to five days a week for five hours—necessitates a personalized pricing approach. Each of our appointment types is priced individually, not only to facilitate insurance reimbursement but also to maintain affordability. The rates for our services vary from $50 to $200 per hour, depending on factors such as the facilitator’s expertise, the number of professionals involved, and the specific objectives of the session.

Our program offers more than 20 unique appointment types, which may be scheduled on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis, tailored to your teen’s specific requirements. This flexibility ensures that care is accurately aligned with the teen’s acuity, diagnosis, and overall needs. Typically, the IOP duration ranges from 4-12 weeks, based on the progress and needs of your teen, with a recommendation for ongoing outpatient services (OP) that provide 1-3 hours of care per week for three months post-IOP to support continued recovery.

To support families in accessing our services, we accept several insurance options, including:

  • Mountain Strong EAP
  • Signal BHN
  • CCHA Medicaid
  • Colorado Access Medicaid
  • Aetna
  • Cigna

For families not covered by our accepted insurance providers, we are committed to preventing financial barriers from hindering access to necessary care. We offer scholarships and flexible financing options, alongside recommending Prosper Healthcare Lending for additional financial assistance. We also encourage working with an insurance advocate to facilitate the process of insurance claims, ensuring that families can maximize their benefits.

Our goal is to streamline the process of obtaining care, ensuring every teen has the opportunity to access the support they need. For more comprehensive information on costs, insurance coverage, and financial support options, please reach out to our admissions team.

How does the enrollment process work for the virtual IOP at Antelope Recovery? 

To begin, simply get in touch with us via phone or submit our form, and we’ll reach out shortly for a no-pressure call and free 30-minute consultation. Together, we’ll design a care plan by discussing your teen’s mental health history, needs, and goals. Once the plan is ready, we’ll start your teen’s journey by matching them with a therapist, therapy groups, and an individualized care plan. Treatment continues for as long as needed. At the end of the program, we celebrate your teen’s graduation with ongoing community and growth opportunities through engagement with our alumni and services network.

Is this program suitable for my teen? What kinds of challenges does it address?

Our program is tailored for teens struggling with various challenges such as anxiety disorders, mood disorders, depression, trauma, self-harm, PTSD, attachment disorders, substance use disorders, behavioral addictions (like gaming, gambling, hypersexuality), LGBTQIA+ support, and sexual trauma. An IOP is an ideal solution for teens who require more than weekly therapy but don’t need detox or residential services. We provide a comprehensive and flexible approach to care that meets these unique needs.

What key skills and understanding will my teen gain from the program?

Our program will equip your teen with essential life skills, guiding them to recognize their self-worth and take accountability for their strengths and weaknesses. They will learn to understand their feelings, make wise decisions, and control their impulses and habits. We focus on teaching healthy screen use, effective communication, and conflict resolution. Additionally, the program helps your teen process past emotional experiences, creating a well-rounded foundation for personal growth and a healthier future.
