Pathlight California - Virtual Programs

Pathlight At Home is the leading virtual Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for mood & anxiety disorders. This comprehensive program is available for patients living in California. As effective as in-person treatment, the program fits seamlessly into your everyday life. Through ongoing connection and intensive support, you’ll learn to navigate life’s stressors and build resilience.

Our licensed multidisciplinary team members use a proven, evidence-based curriculum to treat eating disorders in children, teens and adults—and have had extensive training in telebehavioral health ethics and service delivery to provide effective, ethical treatment and group collaboration in a virtual setting.

This program is an ideal choice for anyone who needs additional outpatient support, a more flexible and convenient treatment option, is reluctant to receive treatment in-person or is ready to step down from Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) treatment.
