STRIVE reopens in Brown Deer, plus more program updates

08/10/22 10:30:am

In early August, Brown Deer reopened its STRIVE adolescent partial hospitalization program (PHP). STRIVE is a unique offering to Brown Deer and stands for: skills, trust, respect, insight, values, and effort.

The program uses a strengths-based, trauma-informed approach to address behavioral concerns that often stem from underlying emotional and relations distress. Adolescents in the program often have a mood disorder known as disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD). Through STRIVE, patients gain the tools they need to work through the challenges of DMDD with the help of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills groups, experiential therapy, education skills groups, and practicing distress tolerance.

To learn more about STRIVE, contact the Brown Deer outpatient team.

See below for additional program updates throughout the Rogers system.


Rogers’ first Colorado location continues preparations to open in mid-October. Lani Healy is director of operations, Julia Carbonella, PhD, is the clinical director, and Sonia Izmirian, PhD, is the clinical supervisor. The clinic will be located at 10333 East Dry Creek Road, Suite 350, in Englewood, Colorado. Treatment will include:

  • Focus Depression Recovery PHP for adults and adolescents
  • OCD and Anxiety PHP for adults, adolescents, and children


Philadelphia will open a Mental Health and Addiction Recovery PHP for adults, tentatively beginning later this year, pending licensing.


Earlier this month, the Sheboygan clinic opened its OCD and Anxiety intensive outpatient program (IOP) for children and adolescents, marking the location’s first IOP open to external admissions. Later this month, the location plans to open a Mental Health and Addiction Recovery IOP for adults to external admissions.
