Our Phoenixville location is open and accepting new clients, providing services in-person.
Our Phoenixville location serves teens ages 12-18. We offer two levels of programming for teens, which can prevent the need for inpatient hospitalization in some cases. Alternatively, our programs provide the right level of support upon discharge from a hospital. Get in touch with our admissions team to learn more or schedule an appointment.
Hours of Operation
Our Phoenixville center is open Monday-Friday, 7:30 am to 9:00 pm. We offer morning groups and evening groups so your teen can fit treatment around a school schedule. Although partial hospitalization is less flexible, we include schooling from LearnWell so there is no learning gap for our clients.
About Our Phoenixville Location
Our outpatient treatment center is located on Franklin Avenue, just minutes from the University of Valley Forge. We serve Chester County with quality mental health programs for teens. Our nearby Paoli location offers treatment for adults.
The Light Program uses evidence-based practices, which means all of our treatment methods are backed by scientific studies. Our therapists accept many commercial insurance providers, and will also treat self-pay clients.
Younger Teen IOP
Our younger teen Intensive Outpatient Program is 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.
Intensive Outpatient Therapy for Teens
Intensive Outpatient (IOP) treatment for teens 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
Partial Hospitalization for Teens
Our all-day program is designed for teens with a mental health diagnosis such as generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, PTSD, bipolar or OCD. We address the condition with a variety of therapies, similar to an inpatient program, but teens can return to the comfort of home at night. Partial hospitalization works well for adolescents who have a strong support system but are struggling to manage symptoms.
