Intensive Outpatient Services



Seacoast Youth Services, (SYS) is excited to offer a new program, The Odyssey Intensive Outpatient Program, (OIOP) for adolescents. This program will provide a structured more intensive, hands on, Psycho-educational treatment experience for young people, ages 14-18, struggling with substance use and mental health issues. Meeting four days a week after school, OIOP will provide participants a safe and stimulating program based on strength-based best practices for teens. Qualified staff will assist each participant in developing individualized goals based on OIOP values. Adventure-based activities and Mindfulness-based recovery skills are an important part of the OIOP.  Parents and guardians will participate in office based and home-based family therapy to help support their teens in more effective ways. Parents and guardians will also participate in a weekly parent support group.

In addition to the OIOP, MLADC assessment services are now available at SYS. Any teen in need of a comprehensive chemical dependency assessment can schedule an evaluation. Medicaid and other insurances are accepted. We also offer sliding scale for clients who would prefer to self-pay.

For further information contact the clinical director, Barry Timmerman, LCMHC, MLADC @ 603 474 3332.

Description of Services: 

Information and Screening:

It can also serve as continuing care for individuals returning home from inpatient treatment. IOP incorporates evidence-based treatment in a unique balance of psycho-education, motivational enhancement, relapse prevention, skills training, and recovery support.  IOP is a 12-week program that includes two distinct phases of treatment:

Phase One is the first six weeks of the program. It meets Tuesday through Thursday from 4 to 7 pm.
Phase Two, also known as Step Down, is the second half. It meets on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 6 pm.

Endurance Behavioral Health provides mental health treatment for adolescents in the Seacoast Region of New Hampshire. In order to be most responsive to the needs of adolescents in our community, Endurance now offers two programs: a six-hour Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and a three-hour Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). These programs represent intermediate-level treatment options for adolescents whose needs are too complex for outpatient therapy but do not reach the threshold for inpatient hospitalization.

At Endurance, our mission is to instill the qualities of respect, dignity, responsibility, compassion, and perseverance by engaging adolescents and their families in high-quality, effective mental health treatment.
