Evolve San Jose Outpatient offers two program levels of care for teens ages 12-17 who are experiencing mental health, substance use, and/or behavioral challenges. Each teen is assessed by Evolve’s Admissions Team to determine the appropriate level of care needed prior to intake. While most teens at Evolve Outpatient start by entering the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), some are appropriate to start in the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

Evolve’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), also known as a “day program”, offers teens a comprehensive day of activities five days a week.

This program provides vital support for teens who reside at home but face difficulties maintaining stability and attending school due to the severity of their mental health, substance use, and behavioral issues. Teens at the PHP level of care may struggle with thoughts of suicide, self-harm, cravings for substances, and/or moderate to severe levels of depression and anxiety.

PHP is ideal for teens who require continued structure and intensive therapeutic support after transitioning from a higher level of care such as residential treatment. Additionally, it benefits teens who need more structure and support than provided in an Intensive Outpatient Program, and need to address worsening mental health or substance use problems before residential treatment becomes necessary. The goal is to support teens in PHP with continuing to stabilize so that they can step-down to Intensive Outpatient (IOP) and return to school during the school year.

At Evolve’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), also called an “after-school program”, teens receive a half day of programming several days a week.

Teens at the IOP level of care may struggle with thoughts of suicide, occasional self-harm that does not require medical attention, cravings for substances, and/or mild to moderate levels of depression and anxiety.

IOP level of care supports teens who live at home and attend school but need more structure and support than weekly outpatient therapy. IOP is also for teens stepping down from a partial hospitalization program, allowing them to reconnect with their school and community while receiving intensive therapeutic support. The goal is for teens to learn how to navigate life and cope with stressors more and more independently so that they can step-down to outpatient care.

Talk to your admissions coordinator to find the right levels of care for your teen.

Our residential program provides a safe, structured, compassionate environment where adolescents receive 24/7 support and live on-site in one of our comfortable treatment centers. Patients attend individual and group therapy, therapeutic activities, and more. Ideal for teenagers who are finding life to be unmanageable due to mental health, substance use, or behavioral issues.

Residential treatment is the best option if your teen is finding life unmanageable due to mental health or addiction issues, is experiencing out-of-control behavioral issues, or they have been unsuccessful at lower levels of care.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
DBT is an evidence-based treatment designed to treat emotional dysregulation, suicidal thoughts and behaviors, self-harm, and other mental health and/or behavioral issues. It is a structured, skills-based approach that helps people reach their goals and create a life that is experienced as worth living. DBT at Evolve includes adherent DBT Skills Training groups four times weekly.

CBT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment that has been shown to be effective at treating depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, and eating disorders. CBT’s core principle is that thoughts lead to behaviors. According to CBT, individuals carry certain beliefs about themselves, others, and the world. This leads them to think automatically in distressing situations. Many of these automatic thoughts are negative, maladaptive, or generally unhelpful. The therapist’s job is to help the client replace these cognitive distortions with more accurate and helpful thinking patterns. CBT at Evolve includes concrete tools for clients and parents.

MI

Motivational Interviewing (MI)
Motivational Interviewing is an evidenced-based practice that combines a person-centered approach and goal-oriented skills. The goal is to understand a client’s personal goals and priorities in life and help them increase their internal motivation for change.

Understanding the Admissions Process

Take the first step toward restoring balance, harmony, and peace to your family.

When you reach out to us, we listen. We want to understand who you are, and what’s going on in your family. A compassionate and skilled Admissions Coordinator will guide you through the process and answer any questions you have about Evolve’s programs. We will also answer questions in relation to payment and insurance coverage. 

The next step is known as the pre-admissions assessment, and our goal is to ensure Evolve is clinically appropriate for your teen. After we’ve determined the appropriate level of care, we work with you to decide which location is the best fit, then arrange a time and date for admission.

From the moment your child admits, you’ll see first-hand the warmth and comfort that defines the Evolve experience for teens and their families. Finally, treatment begins. You can rest assured knowing your child is in a safe, comfortable, supportive environment surrounded by a dedicated team of compassionate, experienced mental health and addiction experts.

We know this is a huge step for you and your family. We understand it won’t be easy. Yes, there may be tears. Yes, it may be hard to drive away. But one thing we’ve learned in all our years working with adolescents: treatment works.
