Discovery Behavioral Health Adds Two New Adolescent Mental Health Centers

Discovery Behavioral Health, a portfolio company of Webster Equity Partners, has opened two new adolescent mental health centers.

One of the centers will offer outpatient treatment to children and adults, at both the partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient levels of care. The other will offer residential treatment for adolescents ages 10 to 18, treating no more than eight patients at a time.

The new sites, dubbed Discovery Mood and Anxiety Programs, will be located in Fairfax County, Virginia, supplementing the existing residential treatment center Discovery has in the area.


All three facilities will treat patients for a primary mental health diagnosis. Treatments include dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), as well as experimental therapies that include art, music and meditation.

The new centers are the latest addition to Discovery’s quickly expanding portfolio, which includes more than 100 mental health, substance use and eating disorder treatment centers across 12 states.

While the company’s organic and acquisition growth has slowed amid the coronavirus, earlier this year, CEO John Peloquin told Behavioral Health Business he hopes to enter two new states in 2020.


Discovery announced its most recent acquisition in early March, just before the virus hit, when the provider purchased New Hope Ranch, a Manor, Texas-based drug and alcohol treatment provider.
