Frequently Asked Questions


UH-ADAPT is a specialty clinic that focuses on assessment and treatment of adolescents ages 12-17 with emotional and relationship difficulties.

UH-ADAPT offers three types of services for clients:
  • Diagnostic/relational assessments: Adolescents and their family complete this assessment to gain a greater sense of the adolescent’s functioning across several areas, including psychological, personality, emotional, social, family, and behavioral functioning. Families are provided with a written report at the conclusion of this assessment.
  • Individual therapy: Our center offers individual therapy for adolescents. Treatment for each adolescent is specifically tailored to their individual needs and strengths. Treatment provided at UH-ADAPT is evidence-based.
  • Group therapy: We also offer group therapy for adolescents, which focuses on gaining a better understanding of difficulties with emotional intensity and developing skills to better manage strong emotions. Parents are encouraged to participate in a parent-focused group that runs at the same time as the adolescent-focused group.
UH-ADAPT is a low cost provider, with fees set on a sliding scale based on family income.
UH-ADAPT is located on the University of Houston campus in the Psychology Research and Services Center.
