Common Questions

What is the first step in seeking treatment for my child?
The first step in seeking treatment for your child is to reach out to our team at Avanti Behavioral Health. Our compassionate and experienced staff will guide you through the process and answer any common questions. Additionally, we also offer a free assessment to better understand your child’s needs. This helps determine the best options.

What is the difference between an inpatient program and an intensive outpatient program (IOP)?
First, an inpatient program typically involves treatment where the child stays at a treatment facility for an extended period. In contrast, an IOP allows your child to continue living at home and attending school while receiving structured treatment during program hours. Finally, the IOP offers a treatment experience without requiring your child to be away from their support system for an extended period.

How long does the intensive outpatient program (IOP) last?
The duration of our IOP can vary depending on your child’s needs, progress, and treatment goals. Furthermore, our IOP program spans 12-24 weeks (offering day and evening options), providing your child with intensive support, therapy, and skill-building during this period. Finally, the length of the program may be adjusted based on individual situations and progress.
