All Levels of Care for Children, Adolescents and Adults
The levels of care at Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center include Residential, Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient levels of care for mood and anxiety disorders. We also offer virtual care for patients who are eligible. Pathlight is the nation's only health care system dedicated to the treatment of mood, anxiety and trauma-related disorders at all levels of care.
Each treatment program represents a direct-admit level of care, as well as a step-down level of care as patients move along the continuum of care toward recovery. As patients step down to lower levels of care offering more autonomy, they have meaningful opportunities to practice skills and “test” recovery while still a part of the controlled, supportive mood and anxiety disorder treatment environment. One of the primary ways we work to help our patients recovery is by teaching skills based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
Our experienced treatment teams help patients identify and address weaknesses in their recovery to prepare them for success at the next level of care and support sustainable recoveries following discharge.
Behavioral health disorders like mood, anxiety and trauma-related disorders are complex illnesses that require a multidisciplinary treatment team. Our treatment teams consist of a psychiatrist, family clinician, nurse, case manager, alumni coordinator and other related patient support staff. A full-time internal medicine physician is also available to all our patients.
For child and adolescent patients, we also provide educational specialists to help students continue with their education during treatment.
Levels of Care for Mood, Anxiety, and Trauma-Related Disorder Treatment
The Residential mood, anxiety and trauma-related treatment program offers medically stable patients a highly-structured and supportive 24-hour treatment environment.
Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers some of the same intensity and structure of Residential mood, anxiety, and trauma-related disorder treatment while providing additional opportunities to practice recovery outside of the controlled treatment environment during evenings at home or in peer-supported apartment communities.
Our Intensive Outpatient program is a flexible mood, anxiety, and trauma-related disorder treatment program that allows patients to work, go to school, or care for children during the day and sleep at home at night.
ERC Pathlight is removing the barriers that can keep patients with mood, anxiety and trauma-related disorders from receiving treatment. Through telebehavioral health programming, our Virtual Intensive Outpatient Program (Virtual IOP) and Virtual Partial Hospitalization Program (Virtual PHP) now offers the same world-class care as our in-person treatment centers.
