“The launch of Embark Virtual is another strategic step our team has taken towards our grand goal of leading the way in reversing our nation’s youth mental health crisis. To achieve this grand goal, it is essential to creating a robust, high-quality continuum of accessible services,” said Alex Stavros, CEO of Embark Behavioral Health. “Our virtual coaching, counseling, and IOP programs provide our clients with convenient ways to receive the same high-end mental health care that Embark is known for when in-person attendance is not possible or they prefer to connect with us virtually.”

Onboard virtual IOP

Embark Virtual IOP is an insurance-reimbursable program available to residents of various states across the country. Virtual IOP is ideal for teens, teens, and young adults as part of an ongoing follow-up and care plan ─ for example, when leaving a higher level of care, such as residential treatment or therapy in the wilderness, or up to a lower level of care, such as weekly individual therapy.

Embark Virtual IOP offers individual, family and group therapies as well as psychiatry and medication management services, as well as evidence-based therapies through experiential activities such as yoga, sculpting, music therapy, mindfulness and painting.

Typically, teens, teens, and young adults in the 12-week Virtual IOP Program will spend three hours a day for four days a week in a variety of interactive group therapy sessions. In addition, they will participate in weekly individual sessions and family therapy sessions once every two weeks.

“The launch of Embark Virtual IOP is a big step towards our goal of reversing the trends of anxiety, depression and suicide in adolescents and young adults from unprecedented highs to unprecedented lows. previous,” said Tiffany King, vice president of virtual at Embark for Behavioral Health. “Families entering the program are supported by a multidisciplinary clinical team focused on achieving treatment goals and outcomes. Virtual IOP is designed to be accessible, convenient and suitable for everyday life.

To enroll in Embark Virtual IOP, teens, teens, and young adults complete a mental health assessment and a psychiatric assessment. A therapist will contact you to discuss goals and a treatment plan.
