Conditions and Issues Treated
A detailed list of the primary cases commonly treated here.
Opiod Addiction, Substance Abuse
Substance Abuse + Addiction
Substance abuse refers to the intensive and inappropriate use of psychoactive substances. These include illegal drugs, alcohol, and even the excessive use of prescription drugs. Overuse of these substances leads to severe physical or psychological dependence.
Substance abuse is treatable and the duration of treatment and most successful sobriety can require weeks or months of professional care at North Philadelphia Health Systems RTFA in Philadelphia.
Opioid + Opiate Addiction
Opioid addiction treatment facilities like North Philadelphia Health Systems RTFA support people struggling with opioid dependency, which covers illegal and prescription opioids. People often abuse prescription opioids to get high instead of adhering to a medical provider’s directions. Addiction forces people to crave for opioids impulsively without factoring in the dangers these drugs bring to them.
Most opioid addiction treatment plans include detoxification and subsequent medications to ease the process. However, that’s only the beginning. Behavioral therapies and counseling are also necessary to resolve the root cause of addiction. This overall approach decreases the likelihood of falling off the wagon. In some instances, therapies can be done at home.

Inpatient rehab means living at the Philadelphia, PA facility while all aspects of an addiction or co-occurring disorder get addressed. This helps limit the distractions and increase the focus on recovery. Typical inpatient rehab stays are approximately one month long.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.
