If you or someone you love is struggling with a mental health or substance abuse issue, help is available.

Leading the way, Resource Center’s Behavioral Health services bridge our communities by providing compassionate, cost-effective and high quality mental health care and services to all people. We are working toward a healthier community.

The Center’s Behavioral Health services offer a range of outpatient mental health and substance use services for youth, adults, seniors and families in a comfortable, safe and healing environment. Striving to ensure services are accessible to everyone, the program offers an outpatient location and flexible appointments with LGBTQ affirmative-trained staff.

Due to the recent changes in our daily lives, we are especially mindful of the social isolation, increased anxiety and other mental health and sobriety issues many people are experiencing. We are dedicated in supporting our community, by staying connected and providing quality, cost-effective, and remote mental health services to all existing and new patients.

Our staff has been hard at work transitioning our in-office mental health services to include a supportive virtual platform through telehealth counseling and Zoom support groups. We are equipped with the technology to provide distance counseling services and run many of our free support groups online using confidential, HIPAA-compliant tools. This allows the Center to ensure we are delivering quality care while protecting the privacy of all users.

We have postponed all in-person support groups and will host most our regular and new FREE support groups on Zoom. Our support groups provide a safe place for consistent social connections, opportunities for emotional support with others, and offer facilitated mental health related topics and discussions.

We understand that the move to a remote, virtual counseling relationship may be happening quickly, and we are here to help. If you need to schedule a new counseling appointment, have questions regarding our mental health services or need technical support accessing and navigating your telehealth appointment or support group meetings via Zoom, please call us at 214-393-3640.

Take the first step in feeling better. Call now. We are here for you.

For all medical or mental-health emergencies, call 911 immediately, or please safely get to the nearest emergency room. Resource Center Behavioral Health does not offer crisis assessments or crisis-related services.

The Behavioral Health Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are designed to treat adult and adolescent mental health and substance abuse issues in the least restrictive setting possible.

The IOP offers the right level of treatment for patients who are not progressing in traditional outpatient programs and do not need a higher level of care, like hospitalization.

Intensive Outpatient Programs are small-group, mental health or substance abuse educational and process counseling sessions held for three hours, 3-days per week. The program licensed clinical staff provide the support to help create change in your thoughts and behaviors, learn problem-solving skills, and establish and maintain a healthy support network. The IOPs offer a friendly, relaxed, comfortable and no pressure environment that is a key success in therapy.

All IOP programs are designed to give both adult and adolescent clients the opportunity to participate in treatment while still going to work or school and maintain other day-to-day responsibilities. Most working adults qualify for family medical leave of absence (FMLA) from work. The program clinical staff are trained in assisting with FMLA and disability paperwork among your employer, human resources, EAP’s and other authorized personnel.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)

  • Adult Mental Health
  • Adult Substance Abuse
  • Adolescent Mental Health (ages 13-17)
  • Working Professionals-Return to Work

Resource Center is a Substance Abuse Treatment Facility, licensed by Texas Department of State Health Services.

Counseling is a collaborative process through which individuals or couples work one-on-one with a trained licensed counselor in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. The goal is to talk through mental health issues and help clients explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others and set personal goals.

Good therapy is client-driven, respectful, culturally sensitive, and affirmative. Specific goals for therapy are determined by you and your therapist based on short-term counseling, typically once or twice weekly for 12-20 sessions.
