Strategic Behavioral Health, LLC and Montevista Hospital are proud to announce the new Adolescent Chemical Dependency Intensive Outpatient Program (CD IOP). This program is offered in response to the urgent community need for a voluntary outpatient treatment program for adolescents ages 12-17. Montevista Hospital offers a centrally located after school program that encourages young people struggling with chemical dependency issues to stay in school while attending treatment sessions. Since family support and participation is essential to the success of any treatment program, the 3:00-6:00 pm program schedule is offered so working parents or guardians can attend often with minimal disruption at work and at home. This program will evaluate and support adolescents with a full range of substance use disorders.
