The Light Program is a mental health outpatient program that treats individuals in crisis or struggling to function on a regular basis. Our mental health Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) and Partial Hospital Programs (PHP) consist of an initial individual session establishing person-centered treatment goals followed by regularly scheduled group and individual counseling sessions; individual and family sessions are provided on an as needed basis. A qualified therapist leads the counseling sessions and is trained to assist each client in meeting their personally pre-defined treatment goals.
The Light Program is available in multiple locations and services adolescents and adults. Most individuals who enter The Light Program attend an average of 18 sessions over the course of 4 to 8 weeks for intensive outpatient program and 10-15 treatment days for partial hospital program. Upon discharge, clients are referred back to the most appropriate next level of care, and often will return to their individual therapist upon discharge from IOP. If they do not have an individual therapist, they will receive a referral prior to leaving our intensive outpatient program.
Psychiatric services are available for medication management and built in to the partial hospital programs. A primary goal of The Light Program is to stabilize an individual so that she or he may be able to return to healthy functioning, e.g. succeed at school or work, develop or maintain healthy interpersonal relationships, identify unhealthy patterns of thinking or behaving, and learn effective coping skills to manage depression or anxiety.
