Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program

The adolescent partial hospitalization program at Ascend is both a PHP and IOP day program for clients of all genders between the ages of 12 and 17. We have several teen outpatient mental health treatment centers in Los Angeles, ranging from Culver City to Agoura Hills.

As a blended partial hospitalization program for teens, Ascend offers elements of both PHP and IOP approaches. You can expect this program to have an intensive approach that targets acute mental health needs that still allows clients to go home to their families every night.

  • Non-residential, first and last step clinical programming
  • A trauma-informed, relationally-based clinical program model
  • Individual, family, and group therapies
  • Various treatment modalities, like DBT, mentalization, and experiential therapy
  • Case management services
  • Medication management and psychiatry
  • Parent support, education, and workshops
