Why Mental and Behavioral Health Treatment For Teens Should Be Different

When you’re a teen, there are enough physiological and hormonal challenges going on as it is. And the challenges, obstacles, and pressures you face today just aren’t the same as they were 40, 30, or even 10 years ago.

Mental and behavioral healthcare should be molded to match the current teen experience rather than the standard or adult-level treatment plans. Teens need targeted support that equips them for modern-day challenges.

That’s what we’ve set out to accomplish at BasePoint Academy.

Going against the status quo and changing the adolescent treatment narrative, we are able to facilitate positive and lasting patient outcomes. It’s how we provide patient-forward and holistic care to set your teens up for success, sobriety, and resiliency that lasts a lifetime.

At BPA, we promise to treat each teen with respect and compassion while providing a safe and healing environment that allows teens to truly be seen, heard, and supported.

If you’re an Arlington area teen, you are more than your diagnosis. At BPA, you will find the ability to activate your innate capacity to heal and establish lasting change. You are more and your future is bright.

Resiliency is founded on effective treatment and compassionate care. 
Resiliency happens at BasePoint Academy.

CBT helps patients identify negative thought patterns and connect them to the subsequent negative behavior. They will learn new coping and mitigation skills in order to develop healthier habits.

DBT is a reliable treatment for individuals who experience intense emotions or personality disorders. Patients will gain a better understanding of how they feel and learn to accept themselves. They will be equipped with tools to manage their emotions, and initiate positive behavior changes.

The study of prescription and illicit drug effects on adults and teens is what is known as Clinical Pharmacology. Here, our practitioners focus on understanding and implementing effective and reliable drug therapies for the teens we treat.

Music Therapy, Art Therapy, and Equine Therapy are some of the evidence-based therapies under the umbrella of Experiential Therapy. During these sessions, the patient will be engaged in productive hands-on activities while addressing internal thought processes, past experiences, and external behaviors.

When leveraged properly, peer pressure and influence can be a positive avenue for healing and change.

Motivational Interviewing is a patient-focused form of teen counseling that empowers the patient to recognize the negative behaviors and initiate positive behavior changes.
