How Can Teen Behavioral Therapy Help? | Behavioral Treatment Center, Forney, TX

How Can Teen Behavioral Therapy Help?

In 2022, over 87,000 teens in Texas reported substance use within the last year. While this number is the sixth highest out of all fifty-one states and provinces, Texas is almost dead last at number fifty-one for teens who seek mental health treatment.[1]

Equally troubling is that more than 64% of teens today feel the world they’re growing up in is more stressful than their parents experienced.[2] This is what the up-and-coming generation thinks of their experiences.

These are the things that matter when considering teen behavioral health treatment. Undesirable behaviors could be due to life transitions, past trauma, academic pressure, family dysfunction, or substance use. Struggling with one or more can quickly become too much to cope with. 

In order to effectively treat teen behavioral health issues, treatment must be aligned with what teenagers experience. Their unique needs must be identified and addressed to treat underlying mental and emotional concerns. 

At BasePoint Academy, our expert professional providers are committed to being a resource for families and a catalyst for teen transformation. By bridging the gap in Texas teen mental health treatment, our teen patients are empowered to grow and overcome. 

We help teens learn to bounce back from adversity and reduce or eliminate undesirable behaviors. Let’s take this journey together. 

Working With A Teen Behavioral Treatment Center

Teen behavioral health is a psychiatry-based treatment incorporating a custom blend of mental health therapies, behavioral therapies, resiliency training, and coping skill development.


Behavioral therapy aims to understand underlying triggers and causes of undesirable behavior and create more sustainable pathways to consistent, desirable behaviors. Behavior modification is essential, but without diving deeper into why it’s happening, the potential for the behavior to return is much higher.

Working With A Teen Behavioral Treatment Center

At first, I thought this place would be horrible, and then I started to love it here. I loved my transportation rides with my driver Paul. We always had something to talk about, and he was very relatable and reliable. All the staff members are fun, nice and listen to you. I had a very great time here, and I got to meet a lot of great people, leaving this place I am a better version of myself.

What Teen Behavior Therapy Looks Like At BasePoint Academy

Custom-Tailored Treatment Plans

Individualized treatment plans are a core principle of BasePoint Academy because no two teen experiences are the same. It’s essential to the success of treatment to create a custom plan that meets each teen where they are and charts a clear path forward to where they want to be.

Teen Resiliency: BasePoint Academy’s Signature Program

Resiliency is the capacity to recover from difficulties and bounce back from adversity. While this is something we all possess, it is a skill that must be developed. Developing resiliency is critical to the treatment and recovery process in order to facilitate true and lasting change.[3]

Individual Therapy Sessions

Individual therapy sessions are at the heart of every treatment plan. Whether teens are struggling with substance use, anger, self-harm, processing disorders, or other behavioral health concerns, they can all be addressed here under the guidance of therapists and counselors who specialize in teen treatment.

Therapies At BasePoint Academy:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI)
  • Mindfulness or Systems Therapy
  • Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Experiential Therapy
  • Psychodynamic Therapy
  • Solution Focused Therapy / Person-Centered Therapy

Group Therapy

Peer pressure can be positive. When treating teen substance use, it’s imperative. By leveraging the positive influence of a circle of goal-oriented peers, teens will learn from one another’s experiences. Together, they will encourage and compel one another into healthier habits.

Academic Support

Receiving treatment should not mean that teens suffer academically. At BasePoint Academy, we have established relationships with local schools, school boards, and education counselors who work closely with our teens to ensure they don’t fall behind.
