Mood & Anxiety Program for Children: Ages 8-13

Program Overview

Explore the tailored programs at AIGAS, specifically designed to address Mood and anxiety concerns in children through Intensive Outpatient treatment (IOP) options.

For those in our IOP, children receive short-term, intensive care aimed at significantly improving their daily functioning. Our dedicated AIGAS teachers and education specialists ensure that academic progress continues alongside learning essential coping skills.

In the IOP, children have the flexibility to integrate AIGAS programming into their day while transitioning back to a regular school routine. This can include daytime sessions or evening attendance, accommodating the individual needs of each child.

As part of our commitment to personalized care, family therapy is woven into the fabric of our programs. Children engage in sessions alongside one or more family members, fostering a supportive environment for symptom management and overall treatment success.
