Outpatient Therapies We Offer

The healing process is different for everyone, which is why Sierra at Southlake offers an array of therapies and services to meet our clients’ diverse needs.  

Therapies & Services Overview

Sierra at Southlake provides the highest-quality outpatient care for adults age 18 and older of all genders whose lives have been disrupted by mental health and substance use concerns. 

The therapies and services offered at our Southlake, Texas, outpatient center are available at both the partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient levels. 

We thoroughly assess each client’s medical history, past and present substance use, and the nature and severity of their symptoms. This allows us to custom-build a treatment plan that may include therapies and services such as massage, acupuncture, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and yoga. 

Our multidisciplinary team of experts works closely with each client to determine how best to approach their care, ensuring that they build a strong foundation for lasting recovery.

Massage

Massage is best known for promoting relaxation and reducing stress, but it can also have a profound positive impact on your mental health. 

This method integrates the body into the healing process by applying varying degrees of pressure and movement to the muscle, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and skin. Throughout this process, muscle tension and pain often lessen, and as the body relaxes, the mind typically follows. 

When massage is included in your treatment plan at our outpatient center in Southlake, Texas, we remain in constant communication with you to make sure that we continually address the areas of greatest need or concern. 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves using exceptionally thin needles to stimulate the central nervous system, which has shown to aid in the treatment of addiction and certain mental health concerns. 

After inserting the needles at specific points throughout the body, the acupuncturist activates them through gentle, intentional movements. Every person reacts to acupuncture differently, but some report feeling energized after an acupuncture session, while others feel relaxed.  

Our caring and compassionate team is highly experienced in using acupuncture as part of a comprehensive behavioral health treatment protocol. You can expect to feel safe, secure and comfortable while taking part in acupuncture at our Southlake, Texas, outpatient center.

EMDR

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, or EMDR, is a type of therapy used to treat posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and the effects of trauma.  

EMDR involves briefly focusing on a memory of a traumatic event while experiencing bilateral stimulation, usually in the form of eye movements by following a clinician’s finger with your eyes. Then, like what typically occurs during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, the brain begins to process the painful memories, and a powerful shift occurs on a deep emotional level. 

At Sierra at Southlake, we recognize that a history of trauma can affect how someone may respond to therapy. We carefully evaluate every client’s needs to determine whether EMDR is the right fit for them.

Yoga

Movement can be a powerful healing tool, particularly for clients who are struggling to verbalize their thoughts or emotions in counseling sessions. What’s more, research has shown that a person’s physical and emotional health can be impacted through the mind/body connection. 

When you participate in yoga at our Southlake, Texas, outpatient center, you benefit from intentional movement, breathing practices and meditation, which can improve your mood and reduce stress and anxiety. 

We offer classes that are appropriate for adults of any experience level, so you can take part in yoga whether you are a beginner or a seasoned practitioner.
