IOP Aftercare Groups


PHP and IOP Aftercare Group  
(Monday – Friday, 4-5 PM)

For many adolescents, the end of their time in the Direction Intensive Outpatient Program and Partial Hospitalization Program is both a source of pride but also of anxiety (sometimes for their families, too!). Transitioning from the structure and support of the IOP/PHP experience to their normal lives can be quite a challenge. To help ensure a successful transition, DBHA offers Aftercare Groups.

These Aftercare Groups take place between 4 and 5 PM, as an integrated part of our Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization Programs.  In other words, Aftercare clients are incorporated directly into the PHP/IOP Groups.  We believe this integrated design will provide maximal clinical benefit by allowing kids completing the PHP/IOP to continue to participate in the Direction experience.  The only differences are that Aftercare clients will participate for a single hour, and medication management needs to be provided by outside providers.

Aftercare Groups are available Monday through Friday, from 4 PM to 5 PM, and are covered by major insurances.  They operate with a fluid, open membership, allowing clients to choose their level of participation from week to week. If your child would like to attend, please call Catie or Tina (603.880.8188 Ext. 0) a few days in advance (preferably in the morning) to reserve your seat.  We hope to hear from you soon.
