    Drug Rehabilitation

    Getting sober on your own is not only dangerous during the initial detox, it is also more likely to result in a relapse later on. Addiction treatment centers provide a monitored environment where you will get the medical attention you need, as well as the emotional support to overcome drug or alcohol abuse.

    Levels of Care Offered

    Northern Children Services offers a variety of treatment.

    This center offers a variety of custom treatment tailored to individual recovery. Currently available are Outpatient, Partial-Hospitalization, Residential, with additional therapies available as listed below.

    Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

    Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) are meant for individuals experiencing trouble functioning at school or with work and other occupations, medical instability, inadequate support at home, simultaneous mental health issues, and substance use disorders in Pennsylvania. They are also meant for those experiencing the risk of self-harm or the urge to harm others. It is a short-term treatment program offered at Northern Children Services, aiming to improve individuals enough to be reassigned to a lower level of care. The program operates within a psychiatric hospital for several hours daily, usually three to five days per week.

    Outpatient Program

    An Outpatient Rehab Program is a part-time drug rehab program for treating individuals in Pennsylvania with mild addiction or mild-to-moderate drug withdrawal symptoms. It generally requires about 10 to 12 hours every week. Doctors can administer on-the-spot medication to ease withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, increased heart rate, and even depression. Groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can be used as a part of outpatient treatment to help maintain sobriety.

    Residential

    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.
