Where People with Anxiety, Depression, or Compulsive Behaviors Connect and Heal

Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) Accelerate Healing in a Caring, Group Environment. Your local IOP is near you – right here in American Fork!

This 12-16 Week Connective Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) meets 4 days each week to help your loved one overcome the confining effects of anxiety, depression, trauma, or pornography addiction.

This approach is called “intensive” for a reason. It requires a significant, consistent time commitment.

It is, however, also an “outpatient” program, meaning participants can carry on with their lives – school, work, family life, and so on – while healing more quickly.

Our age-specific IOP sessions provide compassionate help for teens ages 13 to 17, as well as young adults from 18 to 27 years old right here in American Fork, Utah.

You don’t need to travel to get world-class help with these debilitating challenges.

Your Child’s Struggle with Mental Health Is Real

For those who do not suffer from the effects of mental illness, it may be difficult to understand the realities faced by those who do.

Frustration, embarrassment, confusion, or other roadblocks may keep us from helping our children get the help they need.

Utah Family Therapy offers a solution you may not be familiar with that provides life-changing results in just 12 weeks in a caring, group setting.

What Can My Family and I Expect from a Connective Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)?

All IOPs are not created equal. Connections between participants, their peers, and the therapists who facilitate the groups are key to our high success levels – thus the term “Connective IOP.”

This intentional focus creates a safe place where participants’ feelings of being alone melt away while arms of inclusion envelope them and open them up to understanding the power they have over their own situations.

The level of support felt by IOP participants is inspiring!

When a teen or young adult’s traumatic experiences, anxiety, depression, or compulsive behavior stand in the way of living a fulfilled life and haven’t been positively impacted through weekly therapy, Utah Family Therapy’s IOP provides hope and healing at a higher level.

Lets face it, who likes to talk about their crap with other people? 

If you’re like most clients, you’re used to being judged despite hearing so many people talk about non judgment and when you do open up, it seems like the more you share, the less likely you are to get compassion. 

We’ve worked our butts off to create a clinic where the unfiltered, real you, can show up and heal, so dammit give therapy a chance

We love the unfiltered real you, let’s heal together. – Utah Family Therapy Team
