Levels of Care for Adolescents

teens experiencing levels of care for adolescentsAt Massachusetts Center for Adolescent Wellness, we offer a range of treatment programming options for adolescents. We recognize that not every patient has the same needs regarding mental and behavioral health treatment. Our professionals will work with patients and family members to develop a treatment plan and programming schedule that best suits their needs.

Not all levels of care are the same, and certain conditions or situations may need higher levels of care. Our team of professionals is trained to identify and recommend the treatment programming option that will be most effective for your adolescent.

Our Levels of Care for Adolescents

We deeply understand and respect that each adolescent we serve is unique, with their own set of experiences, challenges, and strengths, and there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to mental health treatment. Every case is distinct and deserves a personalized care plan.

We offer two main outpatient programs for needs that require more than regular outpatient programming but are less disruptive to life as a traditional inpatient program:

Day Treatment or Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

This programming typically lasts for several weeks, and patients are expected to attend programming for approximately six hours a day, five to six days a week. Our schedule includes individual and group therapies.

We also offer family counseling and educational groups for patient’s unique concerns. This programming option requires the most commitment and is the highest level of care we provide at MCAW.

It’s important to note that considering your teen’s situation, they may require inpatient or more intensive care for safety or due to the needed level of treatment.

After-School Outpatient Program or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

This option is for programming that lasts about three hours per day, three days per week. Individual and group therapies are included in this schedule, as well as family counseling and education groups.

During this treatment, patients become more comfortable living life in recovery. They can carry out more responsibility and flexibility but still have the support they require. This program may be recommended for patients who need a higher level of care than traditional outpatient programming but can still meet their obligations and do not require 24/7 supervision.

Once patients complete IOP, they can move on to individual and group outpatient programming.
