Partial Hospitalization for Teens

Our Exton location offers a partial hospitalization program (PHP) for teens ages 14-18. PHP is designed for teens with a primary mental health diagnosis. This may include generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, bipolar, OCD or PTSD. The treatment team will use a variety of interventions to address the mental health symptoms, through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, and experiential techniques. In addition, our PHP program also implements holistic therapy into the individual's treatment through art therapy, music therapy, trauma-sensitive yoga and more.

Teens in our PHP will be able to meet with our psychiatric provider to discuss medications and express their thoughts on symptoms related to medication. Our PHP has a partnership with LearnWell to ensure there are no gaps in a teen's schooling while in program at The Light Program. PHP works well for teens with a strong support system who have difficulty managing their symptoms.

Intensive Outpatient Program for Adults and Teens

Our Exton location offers intensive outpatient programs (IOP) for adults (ages 18+) and adolescents (14-18). This program provides a more structured program than weekly counseling sessions with a therapist. The core IOP treatment method involves group therapy sessions - individual and family counseling sessions ca be scheduled on an as-needed basis. The Light Program utilizes a variety of therapies, such as:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Group processing
  • Skill-building exercises

Our counselors work to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that best meets the individual's mental health needs. When medication is necessary, we will refer the individual to one of our psychiatric providers. Our IOP is offered four days a week for two hours and 15 minutes.

Adult Co-Occurring Intensive Outpatient Program

Our co-occurring IOP is designed to address the unique needs of adults who are struggling to stabilize their mental health while discovering evidence-based substance use treatment options. Clients receive comprehensive treatment in a small group setting to ensure personalized attention and optimum intensive support. Clients will engage in different therapies including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance & commitment therapy (ACT), motivational interviewing, group processing and skill building throughout their treatment.
