Adolescent Intensive Outpatient (A-IOP):

Staff provide group treatment for adolescents who require resolution or stabilization of short-term problems or who need on-going psychiatric treatment. The goal of the A-IOP program is to provide an intensive therapeutic experience that will allow individuals to overcome their difficulties and be productive within their family, community and educational settings.

Adult Intensive Outpatient/ Partial Hospital Programs:

These intensive group therapy programs exist to serve the needs of adults with varying behavioral healthcare needs. One of the goals of the program is to provide an alternative to hospitalization and/or to offer a smooth transition from a recent hospital stay to a less intensive level of care. The program is divided into two separate and distinct services.

Children's Intensive Outpatient (C-IOP):

This program offers an intensive, after-school, structured, therapeutic group environment for children 4 to 7 years old.

Community Support Program (CSP):

The CSP provides services for individuals who struggle with serious and persistent mental illness. These individuals have often experienced severe psychiatric disabilities which have had a substantial impact on their ability to cope with the demands of day-to-day living.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP):

The IOP is designed to serve those clients who have experienced psychiatric difficulties that may be situational, but not chronic in nature. An individual in this program may or may not have been hospitalized due to a mental illness and is in need of more intensive services than a traditional outpatient model.

Early Intervention Program (EIP):

Therapeutic groups meet during or after school on school grounds to provide services to students of various ages and needs. Referrals to these programs may be from parents, teachers and Student Assistant Programs.

Reaching Actual Potential (RAP):

An innovative approach to treatment which combines both a strong educational component and effective behavioral and emotional management into a therapeutic day school program. These programs are joint efforts between Bowen Center and the Special Education Cooperatives of local school districts and provide a full day of school with a full-time therapist as part of the classroom staff.

Seniors Reaching Seniors:

This program provides new approaches and support for senior citizens who require stabilization or resolution of issues which threaten their independence. The support group serves individuals who are experiencing chronic and/or acute emotional problems. Seniors Reaching Seniors is for individuals who may be faced with being placed in a more restrictive environment such as an inpatient unit, nursing home or state hospital. Seniors access these services to resolve anxiety, depression and isolation and to simply feel happier and more productive during their "Golden Years" of life.
