Two levels of outpatient mental health programming for teens
High Focus Centers offers two levels of structured outpatient programs to accommodate a variety of needs: partial hospitalization (full day) and intensive outpatient (half-day).
Partial hospitalization (PHP)
This full-day program is designed to offer a high level of support for teens with significant mental health symptoms. The focus is to quickly stabilize these symptoms and set the stage for a return to previous functioning. This program can be an option if lower levels of treatment are not working, and it can also be used as a next step after a residential program. In addition, this program offers a school component, providing academic support to students while in treatment.
Intensive outpatient (IOP)
Our after-school program can be used as an early intervention when teens first develop symptoms. It may also be used as a step down from higher levels of care. Teens who have completed our PHP program enter IOP next as they transition back to a normal schedule at school.
Co-occurring disorders IOP
For teens diagnosed with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders, we offer a specialized track of treatment. Our teen co-occurring track uses both mental health and substance use treatment methods to help your child recover from both disorders at the same time.
Transportation to Treatment
Lack of transportation sometimes prevents teens with behavioral health conditions from accessing much-needed care. In New Jersey and Connecticut, High Focus Centers is now offering transportation to teens residing within a 15-mile radius of our programs.
For partial hospitalization programs (PHP), we offer round-trip transportation from home to treatment (within a 15-mile radius) and for after school intensive outpatient programs (IOP), we provide transportation from school to treatment (clients need a parent or caregiver to drive them home at the end of the day).
Adult mental health services
Adult mental health services will be available at our Farmington location in the foreseeable future.
