Bay Area Clinical Associates (BACA) is a physician-owned and operated organization committed to providing integrated, scientific, empathetic mental health treatment for kids, teens, young adults and their families. As a note, we serve only ages 26 years and under. BACA is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of child & adolescent psychiatrists, licensed marriage & family therapists, and licensed clinical social workers. We work to take the "mystery" out of psychiatric care and have a relaxed, fun, caring environment at our clinics. Our Berkeley outpatient clinic is currently impacted but we have openings for our IOPs.
BACA Berkeley currently offers an adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for ages 12-17 and a young adult IOP for ages 18-26. Our IOPs are geared towards youth and young adults who have moderate to severe mental health symptoms that are impacting their daily life (school, family, relationships, etc). The young adult IOP is 100% virtual at this time.
Please reach out to us if weekly outpatient therapy or psychiatry is not enough support for your teen or young adult! IOPs can be a supportive program to help stabilize youth and avoid hospitalizations. They can also be an option after being discharged from a hospital visit or residential program. Please call or request an appointment on our website.
