An Individualized Approach to a New Beginning

Members at Project Transition have typically struggled with previous mainstream psychiatric interventions. Understanding that each person is unique, we provide therapeutic treatment and Recovery-centered programming that takes into account the various educational, socio-economic, and ethnic backgrounds of every person.  Our approach to determining a fit between Project Transition and a potential member is very individualized. Highly skilled team members are committed to helping you determine the most appropriate treatment options available.

Project Transition receives inquiries and referrals from individuals, family members and professionals. Our process begins with a simple and confidential phone call to discuss your situation.   An admissions counselor will ask some questions about the person’s strengths, needs, goals, diagnosis and history and will request recent clinical documentation. As part of the evaluation process we may ask permission to follow up with a therapist, social worker, psychiatrist or other professional.

We accept a number of funding sources including but not limited to Pennsylvania Medicaid, some commercial insurances and private payment. Once funding is secured we will set up a time for the potential member to visit one of our sites.  This is an opportunity to meet staff and members of the Project Transition community. If necessary, we are willing to visit a person in the home or at their current treatment facility.

Admission decisions and the provision of Project Transition services are made without regard to race, color, religious creed, disability, ancestry, national origin, or gender.

"My son has been in many programs and far too many hospitals. Project Transition is different; it is actually helping him to live a better life. The staff and members of PT care for one another... it’s a form of community that is sorely lacking elsewhere."

Wendy P, mother of a PT member

" Project Transition has been a life saver to me. I was mentally Ill and felt like I was in a box that I thought I could never get out of. I lost everything and could not function...but now I have confidence in myself. I needed help in all areas of my life but now have a path and a purpose. Life is worth living."

Angie A

"I know what it is like to sell myself and a brand new pair of sneakers for drugs. I know what its like to walk around the streets with only socks on. But I no longer have to live that way. My family no longer has to worry about me. Project Transition means that I have hope and recovery. It means I have a second chance at life."


"Project Transition has taught me how to be an adult when others told me I was unfixable. PT will always be in my heart. I've been sober for 5 years and recently moved out of the program. Thank you Project Transition."

Victoria S

"PT is helping me on my road to recovery. They offer support to reach my personal goals. Staff help guide me, showing me a new way to live. My life has new meaning today..... I now have goals and projects to work on. I am productive and am becoming a better mother and person."

Jennifer S

"Our daughter has endured mental illness for years… we have worked with many professionals and programs. Without question, Project Transition’s help and support have been the most effective.”

John P, father of a PT member

"Project Transition means I have a second chance at a new life. PT taught me how to love and believe in myself. It also taught me to forgive people in my past. I thought I would never get better but PT taught me different. They believed in me and made it easier to trust in myself."

Michelle R

"PT I couldn't see how good you've been to me. Over the years, throughout the days, you've always been in my corner I must say. Times were bad and times were good, you helped me to lay down my hood. Now I'm shining not conniving, working it out my system what shucking and jiving. So I'm striving to be the best that I can be, for all to see, Thank you, PT..."


"The family support groups and seminars are focused and helpful. We feel understood."

Diane S, sister of a PT member
