Self-injury has been on the rise for the past decade, particularly among adolescents and young adults. Behaviors such as cutting and burning of one's self can confuse and frighten family members of people engaging in these behaviors.

We generally recommend a partial hospitalization program (PHP) or intensive outpatient program (IOP), which consists of daily therapy, including group, individual and family.

Our goal is to help the individual identify and address the underlying issues prompting the self-injury (such as eating disorders), challenge negative thoughts, and replace self-injurious behavior with healthy coping skills.
