Virtual Tour of our facility

Nestled on 13 acres in the Texas Hill Country, Innova Joy offers a peaceful and serene space for your adolescent to recover, heal, and reset their mindset. At our inpatient mental health center, we want everyone to feel at home when they walk in our doors.

Outside, you will be greeted by our most outgoing therapy pigs, Uno and Luna, who cannot wait to welcome you. Once inside, you may be greeted by the smell of a hot lunch being cooked or lavender being infused in the room to provide a sense of calm.  Every bedroom is uniquely decorated with teenage style in mind. Each room is named after a warrior and abuse survivor. Their favorite quote and a letter of encouragement from them hangs in their namesake room. We honor their story and we want to honor yours.

Before graduating, every teen makes a wind chime to hang outside. The sound of all those chimes will remind you that recovery is possible and that others have gone down this same path and found their own healing. Now, it's your turn. Welcome to Innova Joy.Take a deep breath, you're home.

The Innova Joy Difference


Individual Therapy

In most mental health facilities for teenagers, 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 and close family members 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. View our treatment therapies here.

Day Treatment Also Available!

In addition to our youth residential treatment, Innova also offers a day treatment program called PHP for teens in New Braunfels, TX.
