We Specialize In Treating & Healing the Whole Person

Each Person is Unique

Most rehabs offering help with addiction have an identical program for 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 seek to find resolution to underlying problems and achieve better outcomes. You never become a “number” at St. Joseph Institute rehab in PA.

Healing the Whole Person

Overcoming addiction is about reclaiming your life and making it better. The Institute’s alcohol & drug abuse rehab program provides the opportunity to achieve a level of wellness that few people experience. We will be concerned about your physical and mental health, offering program options for those with chronic pain, PTSD or trauma. We help you learn ways to better manage your life, while addressing co-occurring conditions such as anxiety, depression or abuse. As a non-denominational Christian rehab center, we will support your spiritual development — without imposing specific beliefs – to help you rediscover a sense of purpose. Helping you develop the skills to manage stress, reduce conflict and have happier relationships is also part of our alcohol & drug abuse rehab program.

Preparing for the Future

A critical aspect of the recovery process is preparing for the next step — living a better life that is drug and alcohol free. Together we will develop a plan for the future, coordinating the support necessary to help you stay clean and sober. In the months and years ahead we will be here to help and offer advice, support and encouragement as you journey forward.
