Bay Area Clinical Associates (BACA): Young Adult Life Skills Intensive Outpatient Program

Services for Parents, Families & Children
Young Adults

BACA Oakland is now accepting young adults for its young adult life skills intensive outpatient program (IOP)! Is your child an emerging adult? Do the challenges of adult life seem too difficult for them to face at times? Do they struggle to live independently? This group may be the place for them! The Young Adult Life Skills Group is an 8 week-long outpatient group for young adults (18-26) who are finding the responsibilities of "adulting" challenging and would like to be more successful in the day-to-day adult world. We will identify what gets in the way of success, and work towards specific goals to help manage life better as a young adult. Some practical skills that might be developed are financial planning and budgeting, routine and time management, self-care and coping mechanisms, transitioning from home to school, transitioning from school to employment, creating resumes, preparing for job interviews, and setting and implementing personal goals. The IOP also aims to address any mental health challenges in a warm, supportive and structured environment. We are in-network with some private insurance companies, can submit bills for out-of-network companies and have a generous financial assistance policy for families. If you are interested in enrolling, please fill out an appointment request form at or call our front desk for more information.
