Steps to Recovery is the premier drug and alcohol treatment center serving the greater Philadelphia area, located in Bucks County, PA. We provide a unique three phase program, creating a full continuum of care, equipping clients with the recovery skills needed for long-term sobriety. Our reality-based treatment philosophy is designed to foster behavioral changes that support abstinence and a new lifestyle, free from addiction.
At Steps to Recovery, our living accommodations are modern, comfortable and visually appealing, creating a supportive sober environment similar to that of a client’s eventual discharge setting. We don’t have private chefs, steam rooms, Jacuzzi baths or movie theaters but instead place focus on providing “reality-based treatment” that creates a template for a lasting recovery. Our treatment settings are designed with client comfort in mind while mimicking the familiarity of an environment to which clients will return, after treatment.
Breaking free from an addiction to drugs or alcohol is a demanding process that takes dedicated time and motivation. Addiction treatment is not a one-step procedure but instead requires a comprehensive continuum of care to ensure the maximum probability of a successful recovery. Our multi-phase program is designed to stabilize the acute symptoms associated with addiction to drugs or alcohol while actively preparing clients for a balanced life outside of treatment.
After completing the more intensive phase of treatment (partial hospitalization program or PHP), clients then transition to our intensive outpatient program (IOP) for 3 hours, 3 times per week and eventually titrating down to outpatient visits once weekly. A massive lifestyle change such as breaking an addiction requires ongoing support and encouragement as to avoid any regressive behaviors.
Our admissions team at Steps to Recovery is one of a kind with an unmatched commitment to clients and families; a commitment that’s often the difference between someone continuing to use and seeking help. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to make sure to provide every available resource to anyone who calls.
The treatment approaches will vary from client to client as all substance abuse treatment should be highly individualized, however there are a few goals and objectives that we see as universal to all clients:
- Improve problem solving skills and coping strategies
- Practice mindfulness with emotional non-reactivity training
- Facilitate active involvement in community support programs
- Understand thought traps and confront maladaptive internal dialog
- Engage in individual, group & family therapy settings, where appropriate
Clients should expect to leave treatment with an increased awareness as to the nature of addiction, cravings and techniques to postpone immediate gratification and improve impulse control. Our team of medical physicians and psychiatrists, licensed therapists, registered nurses & certified tech staff all work together to form a truly holistic and comprehensive treatment plan, unique to the needs of each individual client. The entire staff of addiction professionals work to ensure positive patient outcomes and treatment experiences.
It’s important to realize that addiction is often a symptom of an underlying issue; it’s less vital to focus on what a patient is using but rather identify what led a client down a path of addition in the first place.
