Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Newport Academy teenage therapy and 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.

Westlake Village and Los Angeles Mental Health Statistics

Mental Health America’s rankings show that close to one in 10 California teens had a major depressive episode during the year. Furthermore, one-third of teens in Southern California report feeling sad or hopeless, and for 13 percent of Los Angeles youth, depressive symptoms accelerated to the point of seriously considering a suicide attempt, the CDC reports.

Despite this growing need, however, California ranked near the bottom of the scale in terms of access to mental healthcare—at number 42. That translates to 64 percent of California teens with depression who receive no treatment at all. Southern California families searching online for “teen counseling near me,” “adolescent mental health treatment centers near me,” or “teenage therapy near me” often find limited options and availability.

Westlake Village 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 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 Westlake Village?

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 therapy 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.
