Alcohol and Drug Addiction Rehab for Adults

St. Joseph Institute for Addiction offers a superior path to recovery for adults struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. We focus on individual treatment and one-on-one therapy that concentrates on each individual's needs and the issues that underlie their addiction. Our approach is holistic -- addressing the body, mind, emotions and spirit -- with concern for all of the factors affecting a person's life and influencing their addiction. Located on a beautiful mountainside in central Pennsylvania, our campus promotes healing. Elegant log and stone lodges, miles of walking trails, a spa and wellness center, gym, library, chapel and very private grounds all contribute to a successful recovery experience. In the most recent survey of clients served, we received a satisfaction rating of 93.7% which is why we are often cited as "one of the best Alcohol & Drug Rehabilitation facilities."

Individual and Private Treatment

We are the only facility in the Northeast that offers a very high level of personal care and also accepts insurance on an in-network basis. Most addiction treatment facilities offer an identical program to every person, as if the underlying issues that drive drug addiction and alcohol addiction are the same for everyone. We believe this "one size fits all" approach fails to meet the needs of many people. By recognizing each person's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues, we find resolution to problems and achieve better outcomes. Working with about 45 residents at a time, you never become a "number" at St. Joseph Institute for Addiction. Most facilities with comparable service levels require self-pay with costs significantly higher than our Institute. Please review the comparison of St. Joseph Institute with other treatment centers that is found on the home page of our website.

Non-Denominational Christian Addiction Rehab

St. Joseph Institute for Addiction combines uncompromising professional standards for medical and counseling services with a non-denominational Christian faith. Our addiction rehab program is built on Christian principles and draws upon the wisdom of scripture. We do not impose specific beliefs, but encourage each person to recognize their spiritual self and rely on God's help to manage their addiction to drugs or alcohol. St. Joseph Institute for Addiction is the only Christian addiction treatment and detox facility in Pennsylvania, and unlike many of those in Florida and California that separate residents from their families, we involve and help the family so they can begin to heal as well.
