Dallas Behavioral Healthcare Hospital offers outpatient programs for children, adolescents, adults and seniors. Our outpatient programs provide a range of specialized therapy groups for specific mental health needs. A person can enroll in our outpatient programs even if they have not been in one of our inpatient programs. Key benefits of outpatient group therapy programs include:
- Helping individuals develop social skills that may have previously been lacking. In some cases, a lack of social skills can lead to self-isolation, depression, and even substance abuse.
- Providing examples of other people who are further along in their recoveries. These in-person examples can serve as inspiration and proof that positive behavioral change is possible.
- Giving people who struggle with behavioral health an opportunity to interact with others who understand their challenges. Often, people who face behavioral health challenges feel uncomfortable discussing their issues with friends and family. Group therapy sessions provide a supportive and judgment-free environment for people to discuss their struggles with other people.
- Providing an ongoing support group. Without outpatient group therapy, many people who struggle with behavioral health would be on their own. Outpatient programs allow people to access the support they need while being able to tend to the responsibilities of their family and professional lives.
Our outpatient programs can assist individuals who need support with maintaining the progress that they achieved during inpatient care. Additionally, our outpatient programs can be the right choice for people who require more than individual counseling sessions to manage their mental health.
Dallas Behavioral Healthcare Hospital’s outpatient programs provide a safe and recovery-focused environment. Importantly, patients can receive outpatient treatment while maintaining their everyday activities, such as work and school. We encourage families to participate in the healing process.Our team at Dallas Behavioral Healthcare Hospital aims to make outpatient group therapy accessible to everyone.
