Residential Treatment

Rest easy knowing your child is safe at Innova Joy

Teens live on-site in gender-specific housing at our residential treatment center in Boerne, TX.

The Innova Joy Difference

These negative errors in thinking mentioned above are referred to as cognitive distortions. Over time, disorders such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), and more can develop as a result of these cognitive distortions. Below are four examples of cognitive distortions identified in CBT.

Individual Therapy

In most teen treatment centers, individual sessions are offered only once a week. At Innova Joy, teens attend multiple weekly sessions with licensed clinicians. We create specialized treatment plans tailored to the specific constellation of behaviors and co-occurring issues.

Parent Support

You desire a deeper bond and understanding with your teen, but may just not know how to get there. Innova Joy offers coaching and support groups for parents to redefine their relationships with their teens, allowing for improved communication, understanding and trust.


The academic component of your teen’s life is critical to establishing a structured environment. Your child will attend classes daily with a certified teacher to help regain school credits and ensure they are well prepared academically post graduation from our program.

Trauma-Focused Treatment

Trauma is often stored in the body as well as the mind; therefore, we believe in treating the whole person. From animal-assisted therapy to EMDR, we ensure that every aspect of your teen’s experience promotes healing and wellness.

What if my teen doesn’t want help?

Down Arrow

We have all been a teenager. We understand how difficult it can be to ask for and to accept help.  Our trained therapists  know how to talk to teenagers in a way that is non-threatening. Our residential treatment center is located in an actual house, so it doesn’t feel like a hospital. We work to make getting support feel normal.

Do you take insurance?

Down Arrow

We take all major insurance. We also have payment plan options for deductibles and co-pays so finances are not a barrier to your teen receiving the help they need.  

Will my teen fall behind in school while in treatment?

Down Arrow

We have an accredited teacher on site.  Our teens collectively earn hundreds of school course credits every year, enabling them to not only not fall behind in school, but to catch up and even get ahead. This reduces their stress  when they leave and return to school as they have the opportunity to return with fewer core classes on their schedule.
