My 16 year old daughter attended sessions here over the later part of summer. She had been diagnosed by her PCP with depression and anxiety. The team at Embark were all very nice and it's a beautiful space but this did not work for her. She was found to be appropriate for IOP (intensive out patient) which was 4 days a week, 3 hours a day from M-Th, 4-7pm at their Mainline location. This was structured in group sessions most of the time with about +/- 6 other kids around her age and included a 1 hr session/per week with a social worker/mental health therapist for a 1 on 1. She was there for 5 weeks out of an anticipated 15 week program. She and we didn't see much benefit in going since most of it was group based and covered some topics that she wasn't struggling with. We also asked for things we could take home to work on and weren't provided anything. At week 4, her therapist left the company and we were assigned someone new who then ended up getting covid. We pulled her out of the program. At $2800 per day, I honestly have a hard time understanding the value. We hit out out-of-pocket maximum for insurance pretty quick so staying wouldn't have cost us any more. They also continued to bill our insurance after we pulled her from the program so I notified them and my insurance. We decided to see an outside therapist once per week which is going well so far and far less expensive.

We went to Embark at absolute rock bottom and five months later have a child that has interests, socializes and smiles now. We tried other programs in the past and they do not compare to the well rounded, immersive experience you will find at Embark Berwyn. They deserve a million gold stars in my opinion. They helped our child find a lot of reasons to keep living. We are grateful!

If you're a parent reading these reviews, I can relate. I did the same thing when we were "shopping around" for a place that could help our teen. We had experience with other places and were sorely disappointed so when I say we were all in when we read these reviews, I really mean it. Embarks program provides group, individual and family therapy and in my non professional (parent only) way, it's the trifecta to making long term improvements. Don't get me wrong, it's not foolproof. The family needs to put in the work in addition to the patient. And the Embark staff are there to help support, offer advise and provide words of encouragement. My teen was not happy the first few days and wanted to quit. There were some other tough days too. But, they stuck it out, put in the work, and has graduated from the program. We're not done though - we still work as a family to make sure our teen is supported and heard. They still work on the coping skills they learned at Embark. It's a process that we learned from the talented staff at Embark. As one parent said to me on day two when I didn't know if this was going to work, Trust the Process. We did and we cannot thank the Embark team enough!

After frustration, break downs, and hopelessness of treatment options for my adolescent son, I was once again optimistic for the future of my sons mental health once meeting with Embark.Words can not express how amazing this program has been, not only for my son but for our whole family. Thank you Embark for strengthening and teaching my son AND supporting ME through it.Lastly, Tony- his therapist, related well with us. He went above and beyond to make my son's discharge a smooth transition. Thank you Tony!!

Our mental health system in this country is badly broken and most PHPs and IOPs are a reflection of that. However, Embark Mainline has a magical quality that appears to be able to reach and help the most difficult teens and families. I am very impressed by their level of professionalism and care and honestly wish all teens needing a higher level of care could attend here. In particular, Candace is perhaps one of the most amazing and talented therapists I have met after a 30 year career in the field and we would have never made it without her. For those parents who might be reluctant to hand their teens over while they are experiencing some of the worst moments of their lives should be able to rest assured that Embark provides an excellent level of care.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Embark. From the first day to my daughter’s graduation, she received the best care from the entire team. Talk about a team approach! They went above and beyond to make her feel at home and hopeful to feel better. They motivated her to do the work to get better. They pushed her to dig deep and express herself in a group environment. The feedback she provided to her peers and the feedback she gave to them was invaluable. She looked forward to going everyday. Even on the hard days. Her individual therapist, Jessica Moore, challenged my daughter in ways no one has. I admire Jessica for the dedication she provided my daughter. She was persistent and ALWAYS stood by my daughter on her good and bad days. She never let her off the hook which was a good thing. Without her, my daughter would not have overcome her fears and challenges. She taught her the skills to go back to school and the skills to overcome obstacles. She made her realize she could be successful and most importantly love herself again. My daughter is once again excited for her future! And she helped me through the entire experience! I always knew I could count on her. Thank you to Jessica and the ENTIRE team at Embark. We will miss you!

High praise for Embark at Mainline! I can't say enough great things about this program. The facility is beautiful, clean and inviting. The clinicians and staff are kind, caring and truly invested in the healing of the kids they work with. I was routinely reached out to by the clinicians to check on how my daughter was doing which warmed my heart because I truly felt she was cared for and safe; I felt good about her being there.The team at Embark have great energy, clearly love what they do, and because of that I believe it really made all the difference for my daughter. She was motivated to work hard and enjoyed going in every day. I'm impressed by the progress she has made and so grateful to everyone at Embark for helping my daughter. This program works, keep up the great work you're doing and Thank you!

As a local mental health outpatient provider, I rely heavily on intensive outpatient and partial hospitalization programs for my clients. That being said, I've always found that Embark supports my clients and their families in a way that I find exceptional and up to standards for the main line and surrounding areas. Kathleen has gone above and beyond in encouraging and connecting area providers to work directly with Embark to ensure continuity of care.

We have nothing but wonderful things to say about this team and the program they provide! They are professional, kind and welcoming as well as truly excellent clinicians. We have a huge amount of gratitude to this team for helping us and our child and we can't give enough praise to this unique program. In a space where it is so hard to get great care for a teenager, Embark of the Main Line shines. We would recommend this program again and again.

I am so grateful to the entire team at Embark for helping my daughter when we didn't know where else to turn for help. I wasn't very familiar with mental health facilities before we ended up at Crozer Crisis Intake late one night in early September (after my daughter had exhausted all regular outpatient therapy treatment options and became a danger to herself). By some grace of God, Crozer didn't admit her to a state-run facility that night, but instead allowed me to take her home on the condition that we would find a facility which could provide her with intensive outpatient therapy (IOP). Suffice it to say it was a very scary and worrisome time; as a parent, I was terrified that I wouldn't be able to find the right answers I needed to best help my daughter get well.Based on a friend's recommendation (this friend also happens to be one the most highly esteemed licensed Clinical Social Workers in the Delaware Valley area) we contacted Embark and were lucky that they had a spot open for my daughter to begin IOP the very next week. From my very first phone call with Tony (intake) to the day my daughter graduated from the program at the end of December I felt like Embark was the answer to my prayers.The facility itself is state-of-the-art, and the decor and furnishings provide a calm, warm and welcoming atmosphere where patients (and family members) can feel safe and comfortable as they begin their healing.I don't have enough words to convey how wonderful the staff is at Embark. Sade (Front Desk) was always so kind and welcoming and went out of her way to make sure my daughter had her favorite snacks/drinks each week. Yun and Emily were so helpful in making sure my daughter's nutritional needs and medications were balanced properly to best aide in her recovery process. Matt (Director) was always willing to meet/chat on the phone to answer my questions and was extremely compassionate and understanding when a particular challenge arose with my daughter mid-way through her time at Embark.And most of all, the counselors at Embark, especially my daughter's main therapist, Jess, are truly exceptional. They are patient and kind, and experts at navigating all the tricky and intricate nuances involved in counseling a troubled teenager. Jess also offered so much of her time to me personally, to help me understand how I could strengthen and improve my relationship with my daughter as she discovered all the feelings she needed to "unpack" as she progressed through her mental health journey.Although my daughter still has some healing left to do (which she will now pursue with an outpatient therapist), she graduated Embark with renewed inner strength and a re-discovered sense of self esteem and courage I hadn't seen in her in well over a year. The team at Embark instilled in her so many valuable coping mechanisms and therapeutic skills which I know she will carry with her the rest of her life.

Our son had a wonderful PHP experience at Embark at Main Line. He was there for 5 weeks. His main therapist Chante was so caring, loving and supportive. The intake with Tony was even a positive experience. Matt was wonderful too and would always "check-in" with you when he saw you. Truely a wonderful, supportive, loving and compassionate therapeutic environment for your struggling teen. Highly recommend.

With many negative experiences in other treatment programs, we entered Embark with a great degree of apprehension. Soon after beginning, my daughter stopped resisting attending and eventually looked forward to every session. She became invested and demonstrates significant growth in both social and emotional areas. Now at the end of her treatment at the IOP level, she is confident, and understands her limitations and how to employ strategies in order to cope with them. She is making new friends at school and has become involved in many extra curricular activities. Most important of all, she seems happy and content.When you enter to doors at Embark Mainline you are welcomed with open-arms and true care from the receptionist’s beautiful smile and kind word, to her primary therapist and team, as well as down to earth and astute advise from the director of the program. We were all quickly working as a team for my daughter and on a first name basis. They were the village they my daughter needed.Hands down, the team at Embark far surpassed expectations and all other programs that we have tried. You will be in equity good hands as I felt my daughter was. Embark Mainline is the right choice!

I just want to say that Embark at the Poconos is a wonderful facility. When it comes to your child struggling with mental health you can drive yourself nuts trying to figure it all out. As any level headed parent should be we were nervous about sending our daughter away. When we arrived we felt very welcome and safe. We were involved in the check in process and met with the staff. Of course, leaving was hard but the staff was in contact with us frequently and we were able to rest easy. Our daughter felt safe and at home there. She had a really great experience. I highly recommend Embark at the Poconos for parents who just don't know where to turn. They will work with your insurance to help you out.
