Inpatient/Detox

Our 16-bed detox unit provides a safe, structured environment for those withdrawing from alcohol and/or drugs such as:

  • Opiates including heroin, pain medications like Percocet and Oxycontin, and others
  • Benzodiazepines (benzos) including Valium, Xanax, Ativan, and others

We also address the use of all other substances.

Under medical supervision, an individualized plan is developed to manage withdrawal in a safe manner with the least amount of discomfort to the client. Mental health needs such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and others will be addressed during this process.

Once symptoms are stabilized, the client is encouraged to transition into our inpatient/rehab program, which uses a variety of therapeutic activities to develop sober life skills and to maintain motivation.

Inpatient/Rehab

Our 39-bed inpatient/rehab provides a comprehensive approach to care that is designed for individuals 18 years of age and older struggling with alcohol addiction and/or drug abuse/dependence.

Because we are a program of Penn Foundation, a leader in the treatment of co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders, our program provides support for mental health needs such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and others.

Our inpatient/rehab uses a variety of therapeutic approaches to develop sober life skills and to maintain motivation. It includes individual, group, and family counseling; family education; and recreational activities such as aerobics, yoga, volleyball, and more. A chaplain is also available.

Once a client leaves inpatient/rehab, he/she is encouraged to transition into one of our outpatient programs.

Aetna Care Coordination Project

Penn Foundation has continually worked to establish innovative partnerships that help individuals achieve and maintain their recovery. One such partnership is a care coordination project with Aetna. Through this unique program, Penn Foundation’s Peer Support Team Leader, Ryan Schweiger, CPS, CRS, CPRP, provides engagement and peer support to Recovery Center inpatient clients with Aetna insurance. Ryan works closely with the inpatient addiction counselors and an Aetna member advocate to coordinate aftercare and provide resources to individuals and their families.

“This program is really designed to help individuals achieve and maintain their recovery,” says Ryan. “By establishing a rapport with clients while they’re in treatment, I am able to be a trusted support to them post-treatment. I’m able to connect them to resources and others in recovery that will help propel their recovery forward.”

Dan’s Story
Dan is one such individual who has benefited from
the Aetna Care Coordination. In May 2018, Dan came
to Penn Foundation’s inpatient rehabilitation program. This was his third time in an inpatient facility but his first time at Penn Foundation. Dan felt like he had hit rock bottom – physically and mentally – and could no longer handle the destructive lifestyle that his addiction had created.

Through the care coordination program, Dan was connected with Ryan, Peer Support Team Leader, who helped Dan to access resources that would support his recovery and prepare him for life after completing inpatient treatment.  This included registering for the Montgomery County CSP (Community Support Program) Conference, which Dan attended two weeks after discharge, and enrolling in the POWER program at Montgomery County Community College, which Dan started this fall.
