Mental Health & Addiction Treatment Program

At our outpatient rehab facility near Dallas, we welcome individuals 18 years of age and over who struggle with mental illnesses (e.g., bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, etc.) that have had a profound impact on their lives.

Why Choose PATH for Addiction Treatment?

Greenhouse Mental Health Track (PATH)

Our PATH addiction rehab program—offered in both our intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization program—goes beyond the normal co-occurring disorder treatment, putting an intense focus on the treatment of chronic mental illness.

While your substance use will be addressed, your time at our Arlington outpatient facility will be greatly focused on mental health education and learning new coping skills.

Tailored Skills Training

Group therapy

Chronic mental illness adds a new dimension to addiction treatment. Many programs are not equipped to provide specialized care for those who suffer from CMI.

In our PATH program, you’ll be treated by a qualified, empathetic team who understands your unique needs. We design our skills training to match how our patients learn best instead of relying solely on traditional methods.

As a participant of the PATH program at our rehab facility in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, you’ll take part in groups where you’ll learn about issues relevant to your life, including:

  • Medication management.
  • Improving communication.
  • Trauma management.
  • Crisis management.
  • Emotional regulation.
  • Safety/suicide awareness.
  • Coping with chronic mental illness.
  • Building and utilizing support networks.

Holistic Rehab Activities


In the PATH program, you’ll have numerous opportunities to give a voice to and cope with emotions that are difficult to express through activities such as:

  • Art and music.
  • Trauma-informed yoga.
  • Meditation.
  • Creative writing.

Personal Connection

Patient with therapist

Our PATH program is run by a dedicated therapist at our rehab facility near Dallas who you’ll work with for several hours per day in groups. Instead of seeing multiple counselors, you’ll have a therapist you see each day, with whom you can build a trusting and positive relationship as you work toward your goals in recovery.

People Who Understand
