Rehab patients stay in completely new residential facilities.
For many, the stability and structure of a residential program can be most beneficial.
A temporary separation from family, job and the routine of daily life (and its many "triggers" for alcohol and drug use) promotes health and recovery. This can be achieved with a stay for up to four weeks at our quiet campus in Bensalem, just outside Philadelphia in Bucks County, PA.
In many cases, the patient will be in rehab for 21 days, a period of effective treatment that is part of our model.
A patient's day is scheduled with a combination of structured sessions and personal time. There are lectures for the entire community, and small therapy groups, where the sharing of experiences and emotions lets everyone know they're not alone. There are also focus groups aimed specifically at addressing common obstacles and problems such as trauma, grief and loss, and many others.
With individual and group counseling, life-skills training, twelve-step meetings and balanced nutrition, one learns about making better choices. Rehab patients will utilize our landmark Hansell Hall, a general meeting room and central intersection of patient activity. Hansell is used for reading, meditation and personal journal work, video presentations and social time. Lectures and community meetings take place in Shanahan Hall.
The campus includes recreational areas, laundry facilities and the patient store. The dining room offers a choice of menu options for each meal, supervised by certified nutritionists.

A tobacco program in rehab encourages patients to really do a "clean sweep" of unhealthy behavior. Participation is voluntary and available at the beginning of, or any time during, a patient's stay. Nursing staff provide orientation, continuing education and motivation, group support and a nicotine patch regimen. It works, and patients in rehab who engage in the cessation program tell us it's great to achieve a smoke-free life along with everything else they're accomplishing.
