GET HELP

We are resuming in-person programming for partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatments. In-person connection is incredibly important to behavioral health treatment and we are eager to provide this support to our patients as they move forward on the road to recovery. We also know that the safety and health of our patients and staff is top priority. See our latest update on steps we are taking to ensure everyone at our facilities are following guidelines as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


Our Houston facility offers partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs for adolescents and adults. We serve clients as young as 10 years old. The youth and adult programs are administered separately and include evidence-based and skill-based training groups of DBT, CBT, and ACT. We also provide expressive and creative arts therapies along with education about mental health. The programs are conducted Monday through Friday.

Our team works with clients and their families for individualized treatment based on personal needs and goals. Care includes medication management if needed, coordination with schools, and collaboration with outpatient providers. The program requires families to join weekly multi-family psycho-educational group sessions to support and strengthen care givers. The team takes a holistic approach to wellness, employing both clinical expertise and creativity that maximize the therapeutic style of each team member.

Insurances we accept include but are not limited to Halcyon, Optum BH, Aetna, and Beacon. For additional information on insurance we accept, contact us today.

Our Houston facility is located about 10 miles from downtown in the Spring Valley area, just north of Interstate 10 at the Bingle/Voss exit. We are housed in a professional building that borders a neighborhood of large private homes.
