Local Teenage Counseling in Dallas, TX

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Newport Academy Dallas Outpatient Program 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.

Mental Health Statistics Dallas

Recent data shows that 38 percent of Texas teens felt sad or hopeless every day for two or more weeks in the year prior to the survey. Moreover, during that time period, nearly one out of every four Texas teens seriously considered suicide, 15 percent made a plan to commit suicide, and 10 percent actually made an attempt.

Despite this growing need, however, 67 percent of teens in Texas with major depression received no treatment at all—making Texas one of the most challenged states in the nation in terms of access to care. Dallas TX families searching online for “Dallas family therapy, family therapy near me,” “teen therapist near me,” “Texas adolescent treatment center,” or “teenage counseling near me” often find limited options and availability. The lack of care has led to a spike in the number of teens making mental health emergency room visits in Dallas and other cities in the Lone Star State.

“Families are impacted by mental health and substance abuse issues as a unit. We work with and provide counseling for teens individually, and we require weekly family involvement so that the family can experience healing together. We also spend a lot of time on academics, as teens are often behind when they come to us. We do everything we can to set our clients and their families up for success using our evidence-based framework.”

Dallas Outpatient FAQs

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

While attending a Dallas 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 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 at Newport Academy Dallas outpatient therapy?

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.

Is teen therapy and outpatient adolescent mental health the same?

Outpatient treatment encompasses teenage therapy, teen counseling, 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.
