Outpatient Behavioral Health
Family Service provides a comprehensive outpatient behavioral health program that includes individual and family counseling for children, adolescents, adults and seniors. The agency is licensed by The State of Pennsylvania to provide both outpatient Mental Health and Drug & Alcohol treatment services.
Because we take a holistic approach to mental health treatment we also provide psychiatric and nursing services, medication education, group therapy, tobacco dependency services, and case management, all in a highly confidential manner. We work with your support systems– family, school, primary care physicians–to provide the best treatment for your personal needs.
We believe you should have a say in the decisions made about your care. We will work together to build on your strengths, helping you feel confident in your ability to manage your life.
Programs in our Outpatient Behavioral Health Program include:
Our services are provided in settings that are convenient for you. Counseling occurs in our offices, in several school districts throughout the county, and at the Homeless Shelter in Levittown.
Services are provided in a nondiscriminatory manner without regard to race, sex, color, national origin, ancestry, religious creed, disability, age, or limited English proficiency.
Counseling & Psychiatry
Studies show that one out of every four Americans has a mental health disorder. They are members of our families. They are our friends, our co-workers, and our neighbors. While we may not be able to stop mental illness from coming into our lives, we can change how it affects us.
You or your loved one should seek help when:
- Fear, anxiety or depression interferes with your ability to function and enjoy life.
- Conflicts are not resolved or become worse.
- You or someone you know expresses concern about your behavior.
Counseling and Psychiatry services can help you cope, manage or overcome such issues as:
- Post-trauma grief/loss
- Substance abuse
- Family conflict
- Child/adolescent behavior problems
- Academic difficulties
Counseling is available by appointment Monday through Friday. Both day and evening appointments are available in our Langhorne, Doylestown and Quakertown offices.
For first time visits, call 215-757-6916 ext. 159 for the Intake Department.

Supportive Case-management Outreach Team (SCOT)
SCOT helps people manage their illness so they can maintain a consistent level of psychiatric stability, reduce substance abuse, and achieve a higher level of functioning in their community.
The team has primary responsibility for crisis response and is available for emergencies (both by telephone and in person) after office hours.
To participate in SCOT, you must be insured by Medicaid.

Tobacco Awareness Program
All too often, people with mental illnesses develop other health conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes, because their general health is affected by their illness and medications. Our nurses work with clients to determine ways to improve diet, reduce smoking, and include exercise in their lives in order to improve their physical well being.
Smoking rates of those with behavioral health disorders, such as psychiatric disorders and substance abuse disorders, are two to four times higher than that of the general population. Those with behavioral health problems tend to begin smoking earlier, smoke more, and extract more nicotine and tar from the cigarettes they smoke.
Our Philosophy is about making clients more aware of treatment options and providing educational material to assist in eventually helping someone to reduce or quit smoking.
If you are receiving services in our Behavioral Health Program, our nursing staff and Certified Tobacco Specialists can work with you and your Primary Care Physician to manage your overall wellness.
To join this program, you must be insured by Medicaid.
