The objective of our PA rehab center is to promote healing at the deepest level for those with an addiction to alcohol & drugs.

We believe that addiction is a disease and, like any disease, is affected by a variety of contributing factors. Our focus is to take a proactive position with tools that help set people free from addiction to alcohol & drugs.

Our program at St. Joseph Institute includes important components to address the underlying factors that contribute to addiction by providing a holistic approach with an emphasis on mental health counseling, psycho-education, nutrition and lifestyle counseling, spiritual direction, bodywork, natural methods of detoxification, meditation and yoga, as well as offering support in developing a true sense of self and an ability to implement critical life skills.

This approach will help the participants in our program recover from addiction to alcohol & drugs by addressing the underlying factors that influence addictive behavior and teaching them to manage life stresses in healthy ways.
