Hours of Operation

Our Center City treatment center in Philadelphia is open Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 9:00pm. We have both morning and evening sessions for our intensive outpatient groups. Partial hospitalization is a day program that runs for 6 hours each weekday.

Partial Hospitalization (PHP)

Our partial day program uses both traditional and holistic therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, yoga, art therapy and aromatherapy. Structured programming is offered for six hours each day, with group and individual sessions. Clients receive individualized care from a psychiatric provider, therapists and holistic trainers.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP) for Mental Health

Our 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, and skill-building exercises. Intensive outpatient group sessions are held 4 days per week and each session lasts 2 hours and 15 minutes. The increased treatment hours provide more support than traditional counseling sessions.

Women's Trauma IOP

This group is designed specifically for adult females who have developed ongoing mental health concerns, including but not limited to PTSD, depression and anxiety, after experiencing a traumatic event. This group will benefit those who may display a wide range of mental health symptoms and focuses on helping clients establish safety and stabilize intense symptoms.

Co-Occurring IOP

This group is designed to address the unique needs of adults who are struggling to stabilize their mental health while exploring evidence-based substance use treatment options. Clients receive comprehensive treatment in a small group setting to ensure personalized attention and optimum intensive, therapeutic support.

Young Adult IOP

This group is intended to exclusively meet the needs of young adults ages 18-29 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.

Teen IOP

Our intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment for teens ages 14-18 offers more support than traditional therapy. Clients meet with their peers four days each week, and a trained clinician leads the group. Topics vary, but may include:

  • Healthy coping skills
  • Emotional regulation
  • Understanding mental health disorders
  • Changing negative thought patterns
  • Modifying problematic behaviors

Younger Teen IOP

Our Younger Teen IOP is designed for individuals between the ages of 12-14 and focuses on the development of healthy coping strategies and treatment of anxiety, adjustment disorders, social skills development and trauma.

The treatment team utilizes a variety of interventions, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-informed care, behavioral therapy and expressive therapy activities that help individuals build age-appropriate skills.

Our Younger Teen IOP creates a safe and supportive environment to address specific issues around the unique experience of transitioning into adolescence. It is a hybrid program that gives individuals the option to participate in treatment virtually or in-person at the Center City or Northeast Philadelphia locations.
