Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes symptoms of serious problems can be similar enough to normal behavior that parents might not recognize the difference. Agitation, temper tantrums, fussy eating, sadness, or restless sleep patterns are not unusual behaviors in children. When coupled with actions such as withdrawing from affection and friends, purposely hurting themselves, extreme sadness that interferes with normal activities, defiance of authority, severe disruptive behaviors in school, truancy, drug use, or violent behaviors, these symptoms can indicate severe problems.

The Excel Center of Fort Worth provides no-cost assessments Monday through Friday. If your child exhibits suicidal or homicidal tendencies, we recommend immediate consultation with a psychiatrist or an inpatient mental health facility.

 

Excel Center of Fort Worth provides day treatment programs (PHP/IOP) for youth struggling with issues including: depression, anxiety, mood disorders, ADHD, PTSD, and poor anger/impulse control. Our program is a “middle step” of treatment for youth making the transition from inpatient treatment or as an alternative for those who are not responding to outpatient counseling. We offer a safe and structured environment while enabling patients to be home evenings and weekends to maintain important family and community relationships.

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.
