Insight Behavioral Health, which was founded in 2004, and is regarded as a top Mental and Behavioral Health Care Provider, has just expanded its services in order to help the growing number of adults and adolescents (aged 18+), living in Texas, who would like to achieve optimum health.  The services on offer will include the latest treatment for: trauma, anxiety, and frame of mind.

Insight Dallas is bringing with it, much needed, specialized and extensive mental health services for the state of Texas. Insight’s ethos is to offer best-in-class care provided by experts in the mental health field. The clinic will also screen and examine patients who may have symptoms of substance abuse, and address these two common disorders simultaneously.


Insight’s approach is based on: “evidence-based treatment that helps patients learn to manage their symptoms while also seeking to understand the underlying issues impacting their behavior and emotions. Its goal is to equip patients with the tools necessary to create the healthy, rewarding life that supports their personal values”.

The Treatment Protocol at Insight Dallas

This involves four stage journey which equips sufferers with the necessary tools and skills they must have in order to enjoy a balanced, full life. It incorporates: being helped into treatment, a tailor-made recovery plan; and an ongoing support system which successfully takes the sufferer through their own personal journey, and over any hurdles and roadblocks, until they are fully recovered.

Every participant has a dedicated team which comprises: a primary care physician, a psychiatrist, and a therapist, all of whom work in orchestration in order to generate the best possible individual treatment plan.

Background Information

The Centers are the brain child of Susan McClanahan, PhD, CEDS, who is regarded as mental health groundbreaker. The organization is a leader in mental health treatment and solutions, and boasts the support of a number of the field’s eminent thought leaders, all of whom are known for many of their patients’ successful outcomes. These have been achieved by the specialized and comprehensive treatment they provide.

The Expansion

When the organization was first set up in 2004, there was just one clinic. Now, however, there are eleven different locations across the US which have Insight Behavioral Health clinics. Moreover, last year, close to 1600 patients were treated. Locations include: other regions in Texas, namely,  The Woodlands, San Antonio, Round Rock, Houston and Austin; as well as

Washington, Ohio and Illinois.

The Dilemma of  Mental Health Sufferers in Texas

At the present time, Texans suffering from mental health issues has reached an all time high. In fact: “recent statistics show that in 2018, more than 60% of the state’s adults who suffer from a mental illness did not receive treatment1, increasing their chances of chronic medical conditions and fatal consequences, including suicide” [1].  Moreover, the Department of State Health Services in Texas, has published statistics which show that between 2000 and 2015, the state underwent a 23% rise in the rate of suicides.
