Transitional Outpatient Services

Lenape Valley Foundation’s Transitional Outpatient Program, also referred to as TOP, provides a more intensive group therapy model and a higher level of care than traditional outpatient services.

  • This program offers a 90-minute process therapy group that covers a number of topics including: depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and psychosis among others. The groups will include, but are not limited to developing and maintaining coping skills, trigger management, psychoeducation, and when appropriate, referrals to other therapeutic services.
  • Although TOP runs five days a week, individuals are scheduled to attend two to four days per week. (Clients must attend at least two days per week to remain in TOP)
  • Check in starts at 9am and groups run from 9:30am-11:00am. A typical length of stay in the program can range from two to six months. Ongoing conversations between TOP therapists and other service providers are made to ensure the client is receiving the most therapeutically appropriate services.
  • New clients who do not have an individual outpatient therapist at LVF, will develop with their TOP clinician, an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to meet each person’s specific goals and needs.
  • Please note that Medication Management appointments and Individual Therapy are not affiliated with this program; however, they are available through our Outpatient Department and can be independently scheduled as needed and desired.
  • If you feel a more intensive, five-day program would be more appropriate, please inquire about our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Who is eligible for this program?

  • Individuals requiring additional support with a psychiatric illness
  • Individuals who wish to return to daytime jobs and other daytime commitments.
  • Individuals who are ready for discharge from an inpatient setting, but are assessed to be in need of continued support and ongoing therapeutic intervention.
  • Individuals with co-occurring disorders will be serviced by LVF staff or referred to ancillary services as appropriate.
