The objective of our treatment program is to impart both knowledge and important life skills to residents in a way that encourages self-discovery and motivates change. To those recovering from addiction we offer education that aims to facilitate healing and growth by presenting information that will touch and transform the mind and the heart.

Recovery education at our rehab center in PA is offered in a group format that encourages social interaction with peers and counselors. Residents recovering from addiction are encouraged to expand their awareness of addiction, recovery, relapse prevention and themselves. New insight and understanding can be discussed with the group and/or brought into individual or family counseling sessions.
