Others may be "moving forward" to the next step after an inpatient program. For these people, we provide six outpatient centers around the region:
- Levittown: Lower Bucks County
- Doylestown: Central Bucks County; Trenton & Central New Jersey
- Northeast Philadelphia
- Fort Washington: Montgomery County
- Allentown: Bethlehem & Lehigh Valley
- Haverford: Montgomery, Delaware & Chester Counties; West Philadelphia
All locations provide Evaluations and Assessments for a prospective patient, to determine progression of their disease and make appropriate recommendation for the level of care. Appointments are available and recommended.
Outpatient Services are designed for the patient who does not require a residential rehab program, but still can benefit from a concentrated treatment plan. These programs combine education on mind & body development during recovery, group and individual therapy, and a family education component. A person's length of stay in Outpatient is based on the individual's clinical needs. There are day and evening sessions, depending on the location of the Counseling Center.
Full Day Outpatient (at our Bensalem campus) combines intensive treatment, education and individual/group therapies without an overnight stay.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP) allows the patient to maintain employment and other necessary activities, with therapeutic and educational sessions three times weekly.
General outpatient approaches include traditional individual, group and family therapy, 2-3 hours weekly.
Specialized Outpatient Programs are available as warranted by an individual's needs, location and schedule.
Early Recovery Skills Group enables people to learn the basic tools needed to stop the use of drugs and/or alcohol, adjust to group settings, become familiar with 12-step principles and prepare for Relapse Prevention groups.
Impaired Professionals in the medical, nursing and pharmaceutical fields can receive specialized treatment.
Relapse Prevention Group provides insight on the barriers to recovery and offers necessary tools to sustain recovery.
Transitional Groups offer the support needed after a patient completes all recommended levels of treatment. These groups augment (not replace) the 12-Step meeting format, in men's and women's groups.
DAAP is a program with pro-active measures for people whose lives have begun to be impacted by alcohol or substance abuse. This provides education on the disease of addiction and the knowledge needed to evaluate one's own need for abstinence, and includes 12-step meetings.
Adolescent Programs help young adults and families deal with the challenges of avoiding drinking and drugs in that difficult time in life when there is so much pressure to fit in, experiment, "find oneself" and handle problems at home and in school.
Intervention staff consults with those close to a person who is currently in, or is on the path to, alcohol and/or chemical dependency. They make referrals as warranted to appropriate professionals.
Remember, we create an individualized treatment plan for each person, beginning with the admissions process, and the inclusion of a patient in any residential or outpatient service is based primarily on the treatment plan.
