Partial Hospitalization Program for Teens

Available beginning September 25

Our Havertown location offers a partial hospitalization program (PHP) for teens ages 14-18. PHP is designed for teens with a primary mental health diagnosis. PHP works well for teens with a strong support system who have difficulty managing their symptoms. 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 be a valuable resource for teens in maintaining continuity of schooling while in treatment. LearnWell is an licensed, private program of educators which coordinates with your child's school to help your child stay up to date with their schoolwork.

Our PHP is offered five days a week for six hours a day.

Intensive Outpatient Program for Adults and Teens

Our Havertown location offers Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) for adults (ages 18+) and adolescents (ages 14-18). This group 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 can 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 individuals 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.

Adolescent LGBTQIA+ IOP

This group is designed to meet the unique mental health needs of adolescents ages 14-18 experiencing symptoms that may be related to their sexual and/or gender identity. The IOP group is appropriate for any young person who may be experiencing psychosocial stressors or dysfunction related to, or exacerbated by, sexuality or orientation issues.

Though not all LGBTQIA+ youth experience emotional stress because of who they are, they will all benefit from being in a group setting that is safe, supportive and
encourages expression of feelings, thoughts and opinions connected to sexuality and orientation.

This group meets in person Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 3:30pm-5:45pm. Additionally, the IOP group encourages involvement from family and caregivers to help navigate issues that may arise in the home environment. Family group is on Thursday and a free parent support group meets on Saturday mornings from 10am-11:30am.
