Going Against The Status Quo For Teen-Focused Solutions

Mental health, dual diagnoses, and behavioral healthcare is not effective for teens if it’s not customized to match the modern teen experience, social-media frenzy, and digital world they’ve always known. It requires a unique approach that meets them where they are in a post-pandemic world. Teens need targeted support that helps them become better equipped to face present-day challenges by identifying unique ways to activate their innate capacity to heal and establish lasting change.

That’s what we do. That’s the BasePoint Academy difference.

Resiliency is founded on effective treatment and compassionate care.

Resiliency happens at BasePoint Academy.

Our Goal Is To Facilitate Better Patient Outcomes

We do this through patient-centered and holistic care. Through individualized treatment plans designed to help teens achieve and maintain stability and personal autonomy. 

At BasePoint Academy, we teach teens how to believe in their own power to bounce back from life’s biggest challenges by regulating emotions, regaining a sense of self, and developing/maintaining resiliency

If you’re a Forney 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.

Patient Success Is How We Measure Our Success

Navigating behavioral and mental health challenges and teen substance use can prove to be a difficult time for families and patients alike. Our psychiatric and clinical teams are dedicated to diligently working with each patient in order to improve their self-image, self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-efficacy. 

At BasePoint Academy, our focus is on equipping teens with valuable coping skills and practical self-mitigation tools. This is what empowers them to overcome adversity and make desirable behavioral challenges.


Using CBT, patients learn to identify negative thoughts and develop coping and mitigation skills to inspire healthier habits.

Through DBT, patients gain a better understanding of their emotions and learn to accept themselves so they can reduce emotional displays and make behavior changes.

Psychopharmacology helps patients and families understand effective and reliable drug therapies.

Mindfulness skills enable patients to better manage psychological symptoms and reduce excessive emotional responses related to stress, depression, and anxiety.

Experiential Therapy offers Productive hands-on activities patients will participate in while working through internal thought processes, past experiences, and their subsequent external behaviors.

In teen group therapy, patients will learn valuable coping skills and have the opportunity to practice them in a safe space. They will gain a new perspective of their challenges and behaviors in a peer group.

Motivational Interviewing is effective with teens and empowers them to recognize negative behaviors and initiate positive behavior changes.

Trust Based Relational Intervention – TBRI helps caregivers and practitioners more effectively meet the complex needs of the teen patients. It is often employed with teens who have a history of adoption, foster care, or physical or sexual abuse.

At BasePoint Academy, our teen-centered process holistically integrates academic support into daily teen mental health treatment so no patient is at increased risk of falling behind.

Patients will learn how to address negative thought processes and reduce the associated behavioral issues triggered by an automatic trauma response.

Working side-by-side with patients, caregivers, and clinicians, our psychiatric teams will help facilitate safe and effective medication dosage and symptom awareness.

In a crisis, families and teens need to know who to call. Our clinical and psychiatric teams are here to help with de-escalation and care implementation.
