Teen Co-Occurring IOP

Core Recovery is a state of Arizona licensed outpatient mental health facility. We use evidence-based techniques for assessment, diagnosis, and treatment to ensure you receive the top-level care you need from day one.


Core Recovery’s Teen Co-Occurring Intensive Outpatient Program is our most common teen IOP program track. Human beings are complicated, and adolescence is a particularly complicated time. Teens often struggle with more than one thing at once – including mental health, addiction, and/or eating disorders. The Teen Co-Occurring IOP program recognizes this reality by meeting teens where they are and developing a treatment plan that addresses the overlapping and interconnected challenges they currently face.

Core Recovery’s Co-Occurring IOP provides comprehensive, integrated care, between three and five days per week. The program is designed to occur after school hours, so teens can get the help that they need without disrupting their ordinary school routine.


Core Recovery’s clinical team includes therapists, psychiatric professionals, registered dietitians, and case managers, all of whom work collaboratively to meet the individualized needs of every patient.

From the first day of treatment, the Core Recovery clinical team engages warmly, honestly, and empathetically with every teenage patient and their families to develop a customized treatment plan that is tailored to meeting that patient’s unique clinical needs and personal goals. Individualized treatment plans for Core Recovery’s patients include a combination of group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, diet and nutrition counseling, and psychiatric / medication management and treatment. Patients who are struggling with an eating disorder (such as anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), or orthorexia) also participate in supported meals and ongoing meal-planning.

Core Recovery’s Co-Occurring IOP program uses evidence-based modalities—including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)—to provide patients struggling with one or more mental health issues, addiction issues, and/or eating disorders a healthy and positive therapeutic experience.


We know that entering into an IOP program is a big commitment for our teenage patients and their families. At Core Recovery, our commitment is that the time and effort that our patients put into their care is rewarded by the transformation that they see in their mental health, well-being, and quality of life.
