We started the OPI Living Programs to provide effective, innovative and therapeutic treatment for young adults who are challenged by a number of different diagnosis as well as…
- Discovering their own identities and
- Finding their niche in our competitive and rapidly changing world with its unprecedented complexity.
Our 17-28-year-old participants DO MUCH MORE than address all of the above while attending an OPI Living Program. THEY MOVE BEYOND the multiple issues that seem to be rapidly increasing today and threaten to hold back our young adults. These issues range from…
- Excessive Anxiety to Depression and Addictions;
- “Failure to Launch” and Asperger’s Syndrome to Learning Disabilities and Dual Diagnoses;
- Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and ADD/ADHD to Borderline Personality Disorder, to name just a few.
In our OPI Living Programs, young adults move forward because we combine the most effective, innovative and therapeutic approaches available with real world opportunities to practice acquired skills and achieve growth and success whether they are completing high school or college, finding a job, volunteering or participating in the multitude of extracurricular activities we offer through one of our dedicated service departments including our Department of Educational Services, Career & Volunteer Services, Extracurricular Activities, Life Coaching and more.
We craft individualized programs that provide a dynamic balance between finding purposeful inspiration and the ability to mobilize while providing support and helping participants acquire knowledge about how to create their own supportive networks and find and express passion, joy and success.
Lasting change is always expressed by “doing.” At OPI, participants are supported and encouraged to become young men and women of action while demonstrating patience, tolerance and compassion for themselves and others.
At OPI, we treat the following issues and diagnosis:
- Addictions (including eating disorders, computer addiction or drug/alcohol addiction)
- Asperger’s Syndrome
- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) / Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHAD)
- Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
- Bipolar Disorder
- Failure to Launch
- Learning Disabilities
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Read more about the OPI Vision of Transition for young adults and adolescents and why the Optimum Performance Institute Executive Director Robert F. Fischer, MD, psychiatrist, feels strongly that it makes sense to provide the experiences and skills necessary to grow as a young adult in an environment like that in which one eventually wants to function.
In any of our programs, including the Optimum Performance Institute, the Roanne Program for young adults with BPD or Borderline Traits and our Intensive Outpatient Program, we stand by our beliefs and commitment to participants and their families that we treat the whole person not just the diagnosis.
