Teen Partial Hospitalization Programs

Mental and Behavioral Health Treatment For Teens Through Our Partial Hospitalization (PHP) Programs

A New Way To Navigate Teen Treatment

Sending your teenager away to the far corners of your state isn’t the only option for comprehensive mental and behavioral health treatment. Right in the heart of Dallas, Texas, BasePoint Academy offers a multi-layered approach to outpatient teen treatment with the same depth of care offered in a residential facility. Keep your teen close to your home and your heart with our extended hours daily program that incorporates academic counseling as well as therapy and psychiatric interventions.

What Is a PHP Program?

A partial hospitalization program for teens is a great way for your teen to get the help they need without checking into a residential program. Whether they suffer from substance abuse, mental health issues, a dual diagnosis, or other behavioral health concerns, they can all be addressed from a holistic perspective in a PHP program.

This comprehensive level of care incorporates a full day of treatment and educational guidance with the freedom to go home in the evening and practice the skills they’ve learned throughout the day. The treatment program at BasePoint Academy in Dallas-Fort Worth, provides a safe and comfortable environment for your teen where they will be seen, supported, and empowered.

PHP Treatment Syllabus

The Length Of A PHP Program and The Daily Hours

Our teen recovery program takes place Monday-Friday. This includes two hours each day to manage school assignments and receive educational guidance. The recommended length of your teen’s PHP program will be determined by your teen’s level of participation and the progress they make during treatment. Every teen will receive an individualized treatment plan to set them up for lasting success.

Why Is Teen-Oriented Treatment So Important?

The teen years are an especially confusing and vulnerable time for young people. Teens with mental or behavioral health or substance use concerns may think, feel, and act out in ways that are frustrating, confusing, frightening, and unmanageable – for themselves as well as their parents.

A breakdown in family communication and functioning can lead to despair and hopelessness. BasePoint Academy is here to help. Our program provides treatment for teens who are experiencing difficulties that includes substance use or alcohol, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and other mental health disorders. Our team provides a complimentary assessment to ensure BasePoint is a good fit for your family!

How Do I Know If A PHP IS A Good Fit For My Teen’s Mental Health Treatment?

As a parent watching your child struggle with substance abuse or mental health conditions can be frightening and discouraging. You always want to make the best possible decision for their current and future well-being. 


At BasePoint Academy, our program provides your teen with the coping skills and resiliency training needed to address and overcome depression, anxiety, stress, PTSD, substance use, and other mental health challenges. 


We also know that family involvement is also a key factor in any treatment program. We’re committed to partnering with you if your teen is experiencing any or more than one of the following:

  • Chronic Depression
  • Self Injury
  • Chronic Anxiety
  • Feelings of hopelessness and/or helplessness
  • Low self-esteem or self-worth
  • Bullying or other forms of abuse
  • Symptoms of isolation or withdrawal
  • Thoughts of suicide or a preoccupation with death[3]
  • Difficulty coping with a traumatic experience

Our programs have been designed to meet teens where they are and help them navigate to where they want to be. Our level of care is appropriate for teens who need more treatment than a standard outpatient therapist alone can provide or a teen who has already completed treatment at an inpatient program at a residential treatment center.
