About our Location

Our Center City location in Philadelphia serves the local community by providing mental health outpatient programs through partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient groups. We help both teens and adults on their journey to wellness and recovery. We accept commercial insurance or self-pay clients.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Our Center City location offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for adults (ages 18+). This program is intended to exclusively meet the needs of adults 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, Young Adults, Teens & Young Teens

Our Center City location offers Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) for adults (ages 18+) and teens (ages 12-18). The IOP 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 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. Below is an outline of our specialized IOP being offered at our Center City location:

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.
