Clearbrook Manor Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person's mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Rehab Services:

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) | SAMHSA

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications along with counseling and therapy to treat substance abuse. MAT is mainly used to treat opioid addictions (i.e. heroin and/or prescription drugs like OxyContin or Vicodin). Medications like buprenorphine are used in MAT to help normalize brain chemistry, block the effects of alcohol and/or opioids, relieve cravings, and stabilize body functions, making sobriety easier to maintain. All medications used are approved by the FDA, and every MAT program is tailored to the patient’s specific needs.

Buprenorphine used for Detox and Treatment

Buprenorphine (brand name Subutex, among others) is an opioid medication used to treat opioid addiction. Buprenorphine can prevent or significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to get and stay off opioids. Sometimes used alongside naloxone, dosage depends on the severity of each case. Many people stay on buprenorphine long-term, although some gradually reduce the dosage to come off it.

What does Clearbrook Manor offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

Clearbrook Treatment Centers believes that a medical detoxification protocol is essential to beginning recovery in a safe and comfortable fashion. In 2010, a new state-of-the-art detox unit was constructed on their campus in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. Their 22-bed facility is where many of their patients start their journey to wellness. This unit is staffed by medical personnel 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

24 Hour Clinical Care

At certain points in the recovery process, it's important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Their residential inpatient treatment program, along with a 22-patient detox unit, is focused on helping the addict reach sobriety. By utilizing the 12-step programs of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous in conjunction with our program, the addict will soon begin a new lifestyle that is chemical free. The steps of these programs become an integral part of the patient community’s daily activities and efforts.

Treatment Types:

Holistic Treatment

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic treatment facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic treatment is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Individualized Treatment

Helping people tackle addictions to drugs and alcohol, learning to cope with life’s stressors and addressing underlying issues make up substance abuse counseling’s core mission. Counselors start by evaluating an addicted person’s physical, mental, emotional and social behaviors. This is the first step in determining the appropriate treatment plans for each individual patient.


When a patient leaves Clearbrook they ask that they get involved in one of the 12 step fellowships. This is where their greatest support is going to come from for their futures. The 12 step recovery process has been around for more than 70 years. It offers the patient the best way to take a look at their lives. Stopping using drugs and alcohol is the #1 priority in anyone’s recovery, but more is required if one wants to achieve continued sobriety and ultimately have a better way of life.

Aftercare Support

Discharge planning begins the moment the patient is admitted to Clearbrook Manor and concludes with the patient reviewing, agreeing to and signing a commitment to a specialized after care plan. The discharge plan will include patient communication with a recovering individual who will meet the patient immediately after discharge, familiarizing him or her with local AA/NA meetings and introducing them to people within those groups.

Therapies Offered:

Family Therapy

Clearbrook Family Educational Program offers families and friends treatment for the effects of drug and alcohol addiction on their lives. The family program is provided to family members of the chemically dependent three weekends a month, beginning at 5:30 pm on Friday and ending at noon on Sunday. The Clearbrook Family Program is also open to those people who believe they may value from this weekend program.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.

Individual Therapy

At Clearbrook every patient is assigned one counselor to manage their treatment plans, aftercare plan and other circumstances, such as family relationships, legal issues and contacting employers. Every counselor at Clearbrook is certified in addiction counseling. Many of our primary counselors are in recovery themselves or are recovering family members, giving them the necessary understanding and knowledge of the 12-steps, which they utilize when caring for patients. Their recovery allows for the empathy and personal experience to be passed on in a one on one setting where the patient can feel safe in a private setting.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

Throughout the day our patients meet in a myriad of different groups together. This allows the patient to interact with the rest of the community and begin to develop the skill of getting help from other people that are in recovery. Also group therapy is essential in the treatment process, because it gives the patient something and someone to relate to. While establishing a relationship with their counselor is important, many times it is most helpful for a patient to hear how their peers feel and what they are doing to overcome those problems.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional talk therapy by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.

Creative Arts Therapy

Creativity is inherently healing, and can help those in recovery express thoughts or feelings they might not otherwise be able to. Creative arts therapy can include music, poetry/writing, painting, sculpting, dance, theater, sandplay, and more. Unlike traditional art, the final product matters far less than the experience of creation and expression itself.
