take back control of your life

At the earliest stages of life, one is fearless and worry-free. There are no internal struggles or confusing obstacles and uncertainties. However, at some point through the journey of life and experiences, this can change.

For some, it may begin in childhood or adolescence. For others, it isn’t until later in life or after a serious traumatic event. Freedom and joy become held captive by an internal struggle and everyday life becomes increasingly difficult.

There is a better way to live your life. There is hope.

Our mental health is the foundation for how we live life. It is the internal process by which everyone thinks, feels, and behaves. It’s how we come to the decisions we make.

When confusion, fear, anxiety, or dysfunction get a grip on one's mental well-being, the ability to cope and process regular life circumstances becomes inhibited. Success or victory can feel impossible.

It’s Time To Restore Mental and Emotional Balance

Sustance abuse disorders and other mental health diagnoses are not the end. They’re a starting place to begin a journey towards healing.

We strive to restore the wellbeing of each client from the inside out at our treatment center in Houston and realign them with the best possible version of themselves.

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)

For over 35 years, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EDMR) has helped patients suffering from the trauma of past experiences.

Initially designed to treat PTSD, EDMR is a structured hand-eye-movement therapy that engages the mind and the eyes while experiences and emotions are processed.

Along with PTSD treatment, EMDR is helpful for treating a variety of anxiety disorders, emotional dysregulation disorders, and depression.

Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback (also known as EEG Biofeedback) is a non-invasive method for re-educating the brain. The purpose is to help it perform in a more healthy and balanced way without prescription medications.

EEG teaches brain functions to self-regulate by feeding it audio or visual feedback and helping it learn to alter between a relaxed state and an aroused state consistently and smoothly.

EEG biofeedback has several clinical applications, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD and ADD, and substance addictions. Insomnia, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), TBIs or head injuries, seizures, strokes, and enhancing performance or meditation have also seen relevant applications.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy explores the correlation between one's thoughts and behaviors. The CBT therapists at The Heights help the client to discover where self-destructive behaviors and unhealthy patterns stem from, and help to change the behavior.

CBT has been clinically proven to be effective for several mental health conditions, including mood disorders, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder.

Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy

EAP is a therapeutic process involving a client’s interaction with horses without having to ride them. This process promotes self-discovery, learning assistance, emotional resilience, and the development of social and life skills.

Horses are acutely aware creatures that are highly responsive and intuitive. These qualities enable them to easily pick up on emotional cues from humans.
It’s an experimental therapy designed to enhance physical and emotional healing.

Therapeutic applications include mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD. It is also effective with behavior health disorders and substance abuse. We’re excited to offer this service at our mental health treatment center in Houston.

Art Therapy

Art therapy is a discipline that blends the mind’s creative process with more traditional psychotherapeutic techniques. Together, they advance the belief that all humans are naturally creative in some way.

The intent of art therapy is to help the person leverage the creative process to explore self-expression and to gain new insights and coping skills.

Art therapy has proven to be a successful modality with many different mental health conditions, including schizophrenia, depression, and anxiety.

Trauma-Informed Yoga

Trauma-Informed Yoga explores this connection through physical positions that promote balance and harmony within the mind.

Through traumatic events, the body often restricts its mind-body connection. To be trauma informed is to assume each participant has some form of trauma in their life and offers space to heal the mind-body connection.

Our Trauma-Informed Yoga leaders uphold a client and compassionate space to advance immersion into emotions and experience

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a therapeutic approach that promotes living moment-to-moment instead of dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. Mindfulness results in patients being attuned to their thoughts without assigning negative judgements or issuing automatic responses.

This modality is designed to help clients cope with their thoughts and feelings to stabilize moods, reduce racing thoughts, and ease anxiousness.

Mindfulness has proven beneficial for clients with Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, C-PTSD, generalized anxiety, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

The Daring Way

The Daring WayTM is a training and certification program based on the research of Dr. Brene Brown. This courage-building approach was designed to help professionals, individuals, families, and groups explore their associations with vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness.

The intent of this methodology is to develop resilience skills and healthy daily habits that improve life, love, and how one leads or parents to create a wholehearted and authentic way of life.

you deserve an outpatient program that's tailored to your individual needs

At The Heights, it's important to us to create an admissions and treatment process that reduces stress and confusion. After a preliminary assessment, new clients will undergo a series of evaluations that have been designed to help our therapists and clinicians develop an individualized care plan.

Patients and families will benefit from the highest quality therapeutic care, comprehensive medication management, and sobriety guidance that has been tailored to their unique needs. Clients will be treated in multiple 1:1 sessions per day as well as group and family sessions in any of our outpatient therapy programs.

Clients and families will be presented with either an Individualized Intensive Program (IIP), a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), or an Outpatient Program (OP), depending on the severity and stage of their substance use disorder or mental health condition.

Our goal is to make certain that each client is shown how to establish healthy coping mechanisms or how to remove the harmful substance from their daily routine. This is the most effective way to restore a positive balance in their mind and in their life.

This is how we promote a hopeful future and propel them to new heights. This is how we hold the space for them to heal and maintain lifelong recovery.

It starts with a phone call or a message. It starts here. It can start today.
