Teenage Counseling in the Seattle Area

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Newport Academy Seattle Outpatient Program, located in Kirkland, 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 and teenage counseling and therapy component, we help teens and families reestablish a solid foundation for thriving.

Washington State Mental Health Statistics

Washington ranks among the 10 states with the highest prevalence of youth depression and substance abuse, according to Mental Health America. Anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation have become increasingly prevalent among this age group during the pandemic, exacerbating what was already a youth mental health crisis.

Yet more than 60 percent of Washington youth with major depression do not receive any mental health services—which means that 39,000 young people in the state are struggling and unable to access care. Seattle area families searching online for “intensive outpatient program Seattle,” “adolescent counseling near me,” or “teen counseling services near me” often find limited options and availability.

Newport Academy Kirkland Outpatient FAQs

What is the difference between the Newport Academy Seattle area 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 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 Kirkland?

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 teenage counseling and outpatient adolescent mental health the same?

Teen outpatient treatment encompasses teenage counseling services 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.
