Core Recovery has opened a new location in Surprise, AZ@@Eating Disorder Treatment Program – Coming Fall 2023

Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program

Core Recovery offers a dedicated adolescent intensive outpatient program for adolescents between the ages of 13-17 with moderate to severe depression, anxiety, or other mental health or addiction-related conditions.

A teenager’s mental health is as important as their physical health, but sometimes the symptoms are more challenging to recognize than with a physical disorder. While it isn’t always easy for family and friends to identify when an adolescent is suffering from a mental, emotional, or substance use issue, recognizing signs and symptoms early on can be vital for their long-term well-being.

Core Recovery’s adolescent IOP has the same service offerings as the adult IOP, but group sessions are offered every weekday afternoon to accommodate school schedules.

The adolescent group is limited to teenagers, who can engage with one another based on shared interests and experiences.

At Core Recovery, we are proud of the respectful, accepting, and judgment-free environment established and maintained in our adolescent group therapy setting.

Recovery Is Possible

Our experienced team collaborates to create a treatment plan that meets the unique care needs of each patient. This ensures that the patient can get the best possible care to feel better and get their life back.

At Core Recovery, we believe in treating the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.

Adolescent Creative Expression Group

This group is to promote creativity and self-exploration through art.

Family Involvement

At Core Recovery, we believe that family plays an essential role in the patient’s treatment and can lead to a more rewarding and successful outcome.

For these reasons, a parent, guardian, spouse, or partner is encouraged to attend a family systems therapy session once a week with their loved one.

Our Family Systems Program is committed to strengthening family relationships, educating families on addiction, mental health, and the support that exists for the family themselves.

We believe that ongoing support during and after treatment is necessary for our patient’s redirection of their lives and for reaching and maintaining sobriety.
