Ascend Intensive Outpatient Program in Fresno, CA

At Ascend Behavioral Health, we provide an Intensive Outpatient Program that meets four times a week to help teens who are having an immensely difficult time grappling with mental health. During our IOP sessions, we teach teens how to control their emotions and cope with their feelings. We are committed to providing an environment where teens can learn to thrive and succeed. Our experienced therapists have extensive knowledge of the various mental illnesses and can assist your teen in managing their symptoms. Often, a teen in our IOP program will supplement their curriculum with family therapy, allowing the parents to be involved in the treatment process. If you are searching for a mental health facility for your teen, contact Ascend Behavioral Health today in Fresno, CA.

Who We Serve

It is Ascend’s mission to serve teens who are struggling with mental health conditions. Often times we serve those who need more help and assistance than their school, outpatient therapist, or families can support. When things get especially difficult in life, Ascend is here to be your beacon of hope. 


Typically, teens that find their home at Ascend are struggling with anxiety and/or depression. We often see that teens don’t present with “adult” symptoms of these disorders. They may be irritable and acting out, moody and argumentative, isolating and pushing others away, engaging in self-harm, using drugs or alcohol, or not seeming like themselves. When these concerns are present and they are interfering with school, family life, or friendships, it’s time to consider enrolling in Ascend’s Intensive Outpatient Program. 


While we are happy to help assess and refer, often times teens who are actively psychotic, have a developmental disorder, or have a severe eating disorder are better suited for programs who serve these specific disorders.
