Bay Area Clinical Associates (BACA): Intensive Outpatient Programs Adolescents (12-17) and Young Adults (18-26)

Services for Parents, Families & Children
School-Aged, Preteens, Teens, Young Adults

BACA Oakland offers two Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) for adolescents and young adults. An IOP is a multi-week treatment program for those who need more intensive treatment and a higher level of care than routine outpatient services. IOPs can also be a step-down from residential programs or hospitalization. Adolescents or young adults who are a good fit experience frequent mental health symptoms that significantly impact their functioning in relationships, school (e.g. attendance, performance), work and/or community.

The program helps teens develop the skills needed to manage mental health symptoms, advocate for themselves and build better relationships with those in their lives in a warm, structured and supportive environment. It also helps to identify and address the underlying reasons for school refusal, and emotional and behavioral issues at home and/or at school.

Do the challenges of adult life seem too difficult to face at times? Do you struggle to live independently? This group may be the place for you! ​The program is for young adults who are finding the responsibilities of "adulting" challenging and would like to be more successful in the day-to-day adult world. ​

Intake Process

If you are interested in enrolling in our IOPs, please complete an Appointment Request Form. Once the form is successfully completed and submitted, you will be contacted by a member of our staff for a phone screening and to set up the Free Needs Assessment.

Insurance and Fees

We currently are in-network with Cigna, Aetna and Anthem Blue Cross for both outpatient and intensive outpatient services (IOPs). We will submit claims to all other insurance companies and have a generous financial assistance policy for families in need.
