NORTH PALM BEACH OUTPATIENT MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT PROGRAM

North Palm Beach, FL

HOME / LOCATIONS / NORTH PALM BEACH, FL

Virtual treatment available: DMA outpatient programs can also be accessed via online telehealth services.

Our treatment center in North Palm Beach offers day treatment programs providing partial hospitalization (PHP) and intensive outpatient (IOP) levels of care, Monday through Friday. We support adolescents between the ages of 11 and 17 (in-person PHP and IOP) and adults age 18 and older (in-person adult PHP and IOP; virtual IOP) of all genders who are struggling with various mental health concerns. Here, patients benefit from one-on-one therapeutic support as well as group sessions in a compassionate environment of peers; they can safely practice new skills that are transferable to home. Additionally, all patients in PHP receive psychiatric evaluations and follow-up appointments weekly.

The treatment program is designed to assist patients in developing insight into their mental health issues and support them and their families in developing new, healthy patterns of thinking to apply to the home, educational and social settings. The program promotes emotional regulation and awareness by utilizing therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), psycho-dynamic and behavioral modification, along with experiential therapy through art or yoga.

Families are integrated into the work with weekly multi-family group sessions, homework and family meetings. We provide a safe and supportive environment in which our patients can begin to understand and change negative behaviors and unhealthy coping skills.

The 4,500-square foot North Palm Beach facility is located right on US Highway 1 in a professional building adjacent to waterfront homes, just moments from the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.

Insurances we accept at this location include but are not limited to Aetna, Florida New Directions Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Cigna, and Beacon. Please remember that the insurances we accept change frequently. Our insurance team will verify your coverage.
