About Our Northeast Philadelphia Location

This outpatient treatment center is one of two locations in Philadelphia. While our Center City location serves the downtown area, our Northeast location serves clients living in the suburbs and surrounding counties like Bucks. We accept most commercial insurance providers and self-pay clients.

Partial Hospitalization Program for Adults & Teens

Our Northeast location offers two separate Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP), for adults (ages 18+), and for teens (ages 14-18). This program is intended to exclusively meet the needs of adults and teens who may be experiencing mental health symptoms due to increased anxiety, pressure, depression, helplessness and difficulty managing life stressors and transitions. PHP is designed for individuals with a primary mental health diagnosis. This may include generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, bipolar, OCD or PTSD.

The treatment team utilizes traditional and holistic therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), motivational interviewing, yoga, art therapy, psychoeducation and aromatherapy. Clients receive individualized care from a psychiatric provider, therapists and holistic trainers. Our PHP is offered five days a week for fours a day.

Intensive Outpatient Program for Adults & Teens

Our Northeast location offers Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) for adults (ages 18+) and adolescents (ages 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 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 your mental health needs. When medication is necessary, we will refer you to one of our psychiatric providers. Our IOP is offered four days a week for two hours and 15 minutes.

Young Adult IOP

This group is intended to exclusively meet the needs of young adults ages 18-26 who may be experiencing mental health symptoms due to an increase of anxiety, stress, pressure and/or depression from life stressors. Clients will learn to develop coping mechanisms and improve their skill sets to apply to their overall wellness.

Younger Teen IOP

In addition to our teen Intensive Outpatient Program, our Northeast location also offers a younger teen Intensive Outpatient Program for those individuals between the ages of 12-14. A therapeutic group with similar-aged peers increases the likelihood of engagement and positive treatment outcomes. The focus of this group will be to develop healthy coping strategies in order to assist with the treatment of anxiety, adjustment disorders, social skills development and trauma. The treatment team will utilize a variety of interventions, through CBT, trauma-informed care, behavioral therapy and expressive therapy activities in order to support the individual in developing the appropriate set of skills. The goal of our younger teen IOP is to create a safe and supportive environment to address specific issues around the unique experience of transitioning into adolescence.
