Early Childhood Program: Ages 5-10

Program Overview

The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offers a brief period of support for individuals transitioning from a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or facing challenges in handling their symptoms through regular outpatient treatment. Our aim at AIGAS, within the IOP, is to ensure that patients stay engaged in their daily activities while receiving a more concentrated level of treatment. This program may be suggested for children struggling with daily stress, needing extra support beyond school hours, but are still capable of attending school or other organized activities during the day.
