Youth are separated by ages into specialized groups including Elementary, Young Adolescent, Adolescent and DBT. The program includes process group therapy, coping skills groups, family therapy and weekly individual treatment with a board certified child and adolescent psychiatrist. Excel Center of Lewisville also provides on-campus school through the Brazos Charter School to assist youth with keeping up with their academics while in treatment.
The program is held Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Our average length of stay is four to six weeks. Discharge is dependent on your child’s progress, and continuous review of criteria for level of care by the psychiatrist and the treatment team.
Your child is assigned a therapist case manager upon admission, who is available by phone daily, and can visit with you during family therapy sessions to discuss your child’s progress. Daily home reports are a good way to communicate with the therapists, nurses and teachers. Therapists and nurses are in group during the morning and check their voice mail regularly. Phone calls will be returned as soon as possible.
If admitted, you will register your child for enrollment in our on-campus Brazos River Charter School during treatment. The school registrar will contact your child’s home school for current course requirements. Any special concerns you have about school can be addressed by the school registrar at (972) 906-5522.
Family participation is a key component in the treatment program through individual family therapy, treatment and discharge planning. It helps facilitate improved functioning within the family and home environment.
