Teenage Counseling Services in Atlanta, GA

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Newport Academy teenage counseling & outpatient program in Atlanta is tailored for teens who are experiencing anxiety, depression, substance abuse, or other mental health concerns, and who may also be falling behind in their academic and social-emotional progress as a result. Through a comprehensive, evidence-based plan tailored for each individual and incorporating a robust family therapy counseling component, we help teens and families reestablish a solid foundation for thriving.

Atlanta Mental Health Statistics

One out of every 10 adolescents in Georgia suffers from severe major depression, and the state has one of the worst rankings in the country as far as access to care: A full 70 percent of Georgia teens with depression receive no mental health services at all. As a result, families searching online in Georgia for “family therapy near me,” “teenage counseling services near me,” or “adolescent counseling services near me” often find limited options and availability.

Newport Academy’s outpatient program in Atlanta is helping to address this gap in mental healthcare in the state, by providing teens with integrated, evidence-based care while helping them to build supportive peer communities. Our model of care incorporates teenage counseling services, including teen depression therapy, with local parent support groups and family therapy in Atlanta, so both young people and parents gain tools for better communication and enhanced family harmony.

Newport Academy Atlanta Outpatient FAQs

What is the difference between teen inpatient and teen outpatient treatment?

While attending a teen outpatient program, your child is in programming during the day or afternoon, and is at home overnight and on weekends. In inpatient treatment, teens live on-site at a residential location while receiving treatment. Both residential treatment and the highest level of outpatient care (a Partial Hospitalization Program, or PHP) typically include an academic component. If your teen needs more than teenage therapy services or outpatient programming, we encourage you to learn more about our residential treatment and contact us to determine the best fit for your child.

What’s the difference between a PHP, an IOP, and outpatient services?

The main difference between Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), and outpatient services is the amount of time your child spends in treatment. At the PHP day program level, adolescents attend all-day programming, five days a week. The IOP level is usually five afternoons a week, following the client’s attendance at their home school. Outpatient services refer to the lowest level of teen outpatient treatment, with programming provided fewer than five afternoons a week, depending on the client’s and family’s needs and goals.

What happens in outpatient therapy at Newport Academy Atlanta?

In a teen outpatient program, clients typically have a structured daily schedule that includes individual and group therapy sessions, experiential modalities, and time in the classroom focusing on academics and life skills. Depending on the day and the outpatient program location, teens may be tubing on a nearby river, doing yoga a ropes course, making art or music, doing community service with their peers, or participating in family programs that involve parents and siblings in the healing process.

Are teenage counseling and outpatient adolescent mental health the same?

Teen outpatient treatment encompasses teen therapy and much more. A PHP, IOP, or outpatient services for your child will provide a wide range of therapeutic and academic experiences, while offering a stable and supportive community and addressing the entire family’s needs.
