What to Expect From Our Relevance Teen After-School Program

The Relevance Teen Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is an after-school treatment program offering structured therapeutic activities for youth. Our program offers a comprehensive range of services to address youth’s individual needs—aiming to help youth/children struggling with various issues such as anxiety, depression, defiance, anger, bipolar and more. Additionally, there is a separate and distinct treatment tract specifically for those youth struggling with substance use disorders.

Our multidisciplinary approach allows us to teach these adolescents more thoroughly, leading to widespread change in areas such as self-esteem, behavioral issues, and family dynamics. Utilizing a multidisciplinary approach, including Trauma Focused CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), and other theoretical approaches, we are able to provide an evidenced based treatment for youth/children who struggle with many symptoms of mental illness, particularly self-harm, and suicide as well as emotional dysregulation and difficulty tolerating crisis.

Learn More on The Risks Of Teen Alcohol & Marijuana Abuse

At Relevance Teen, we understand the critical importance of addressing the dangers of marijuana and alcohol abuse among adolescents. Navigating adolescence brings peer pressure, stress, and curiosity about substances. It’s vital to educate young individuals about risks tied to marijuana and alcohol during this critical life stage. These substances can harm brain development, leading to lasting cognitive and behavioral issues. Our programs equip teens with knowledge for informed decisions, fostering resilience against substance abuse.

Teen misuse of marijuana and alcohol has broader consequences beyond immediate health. Academic performance, relationships, and emotional well-being suffer. Early substance abuse heightens addiction and mental health risks later. Relevance Teen provides evidence-based therapies, counseling, and support groups for healthy coping and resilience.

Marijuana and alcohol dangers shape teen lives. Our dedicated experts create a safe space, emphasizing prevention and early intervention. We empower teens for healthier choices, a brighter future. Addressing substance risks head-on, we champion New Jersey teens to realize their potential and live substance-free, fulfilling lives.
