Teen Partial Hospitalization Program

Co-Occurring Treatment

Our Paoli location offers an all-day program for teens (ages 14-18) who have a co-occurring diagnosis. Teens who have a history of substance abuse and mental health concerns would benefit from this program and this program will work well for teens with a strong support system who have difficulty managing their symptoms. The treatment team will use a variety of interventions to address the mental health symptoms, that may be driving the substance use, 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 individuals 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.

Eating Disorder PHP Treatment

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

Intensive Outpatient Program for Adults and Teens

Mental Health Treatment

Our Paoli 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 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.

Eating Disorder IOP Treatment

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