Detox Services:

Subacute Detox:

Subacute detox is a way of ridding a patient's body of substances in a safe way. Less intensive than acute detox, subacute detox frequently involves both the use of certain prescription drugs to help the body transition safely to being substance-free, as well as counseling and therapy. Sub-acute detox programs are either residential, where you stay at the facility, or outpatient, where you attend treatment during the day but sleep off-site. Subacute programs vary in length, depending on the addiction. For example, those dependent on benzodiazepines benefit from a slow tapering-off process that can take several months. Sub-acute detox is sometimes used as a second-tier treatment for those who've already completed a more rigorous inpatient detox program.

Medication-Assisted Treatment:

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 Detox:

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.

Psychotropic Medication:

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient's mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person's mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

Level of Care:

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.

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.

Inpatient:

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.

Intervention Services:

Intervention services helps family or friends of addicts stage an intervention, which is a meeting in which loved ones share their concerns and attempt to get an addict into treatment. Professional intervention specialists can help loved ones organize, gather, and communicate with an addict. They can guide intervention participants in describing the damage the addict's behavior is causing and that outside help is necessary to address the addiction. The ideal outcome of an intervention is for the addict to go to rehab and get the help they need.

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.

12-Step:

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.

Treatment Focus:

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs 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.

Alcoholism:

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.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse:

A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Therapy Programs:

Rational Behavior Therapy:

Rational Behavior Therapy (RBT) is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy meant to be short-term and comprehensive. It was intended to help clients become more self-sufficent and move forward without the need for expensive, ongoing therapy. It includes an emotional self-help method called “rational self-counseling,” the purpose of which is to give clients all the skills needed to handle future emotional issues by themselves, or with significantly less professional help.

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:

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:

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.
