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+). Our 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 four hours a day.

Mental Health PHP

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. This PHP is designed for individuals with a primary mental health diagnosis, which may include generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, bipolar, OCD or PTSD.

Co-Occurring Trauma PHP

This program is intended for clients who are experiencing issues related to mental health, complex trauma, and addiction. This program provides an intensive level of care for individuals in need of structure and support to stabilize mental health symptoms, decrease substance use, and manage acute symptoms following recent traumatic experiences. Clients are encouraged to work towards decreasing substance use while addressing issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, etc. This program strives to use evidence-based practices to assist clients to move to a sustainable life of healing and growth.

Young Adult PHP

This program is intended to exclusively meet the needs of young adults ages 18-24 who may be experiencing mental health symptoms due to increased anxiety, pressure, depression, helplessness and difficulty managing life stressors and transitions. They will target areas such as setting healthy boundaries, improving communication skills, increasing behavioral activation, exploring career goals and independent living skills, and building confidence and insight into current choices and actions. The Young Adult PHP track will also encourage expression of feelings, thoughts and opinions connected to sexuality and orientation in a safe and supportive space. This program is provided Monday-Friday from 9:30am to 1:30pm.

Intensive Outpatient Program for Adults

Our Center City location offers Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) for adults (ages 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 set to apply to their overall wellness.

Eating Disorder IOP for Adults

Primary eating disorder treatment is available through our partner program, Seeds of Hope.
More information about this program can be found on their website.
