Pediatric Psychology Associates’ Anxiety and OCD Intensive Outpatient Program (Aventura)
At PPA, we have been treating OCD on an outpatient basis for over 15 years. In 2015, we established our Anxiety and OCD Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) to address the needs of patients who required a higher level of care than weekly therapy could provide. Our IOP offers intensive treatment for individuals who are experiencing very high levels of interference in their daily lives or whose schedules only allow a limited time frame in which to engage in treatment. IOP treatment aims to reduce symptoms and restore functioning more rapidly than traditional outpatient therapy. Our IOP offers a great deal of flexibility with regards to schedule and location of intervention, as it is customized to meet the needs of each individual.
After intensive treatment, continued weekly therapy sessions are often recommended for a period of time. The focus of this phase of treatment is to help patients continue to use skills learned during intensive treatment in everyday life, quickly identify and address any new problems, and recognize when professional help might be needed again.
Our staff consists of licensed psychologists with specialized training and extensive experience treating anxiety, OCD, and related disorders.
