One of the Leading Dual Diagnosis Treatment Centers in PA

Retreat at Lancaster County is situated on 24 picturesque acres of beautiful Pennsylvania countryside, designed to provide our patients with a serene and peaceful setting to begin or continue on their recovery journey. At the inpatient level of care, individuals can step away from the demands of their daily routine, including the weight of work obligations and adult responsibilities, and focus wholeheartedly on their well-being.

As a premier alcohol rehab in Lancaster, PA, we are able to deliver integrated and innovative care to individuals seeking residential assistance for mental health and/or drug and alchohol dependency. For those in our residential rehab facility, that includes round-the-clock care by a team of compassionate and licensed healthcare professionals  committed to the long-term mental health and substance use recovery of our patients.

Program Highlights

Inpatient recovery is not a one-size-fits all model. Each person requires one or more treatment methodologies that can help us address addiction from all angles. As far as rehab facilites in Lancaster, PA go, Retreat offers a diverse array treatment modalities and personalized support options to help each of our patients achieve long-lasting substance use and/or mental health recovery.

Discover a selection of our program’s offerings below:

Holistic Therapy

Holistic therapy is an all-encompassing approach to treating substance use, acknowledging the impact of addiction on the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of individuals. Rather than merely addressing symptoms, holistic therapy delves into the root causes of substance dependency, utilizing diverse techniques and practices. At Retreat, our holistic offerings include yoga, gardening, equine therapy, music therapy, and art therapy.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

At Retreat Behavioral Health, our Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program is designed to provide comprehensive care for individuals struggling with Substance Use Disorders (SUD). As such, we incorporate FDA-approved pharmacological options, counseling, and behavioral therapies to help address the underlying causes of each patient’s addiction while managing withdrawal symptoms and cravings effectively.

Medical Detoxification

With a commitment to providing the highest level of care and support, our compassionate and experienced team of physicians, nurses, and addiction specialists is dedicated to guiding individuals through the challenging process of detoxification. We understand the complexities of managing withdrawal symptoms and the potential complications that arise from substance use, and our knowledgeable staff is well-versed in offering personalized treatment plans to ensure a safe and comfortable detox experience.

Aftercare Planning

Ongoing support and guidance as individuals transition back into their everyday lives is vital. To accommodate such transitions, Retreat offers a comprehensive aftercare planning process that takes into account individual goals, support networks, lifestyle, and specific challenges. Through collaboration, we work together to identify potential triggers, develop effective coping strategies, and establish a robust resource and support system network.
